Awkward people walk on our streets, Stiffened backs and arms that don’t swing Where are they going? What do they know? That I don’t Awkward people think clearly too, A weathered highway between mind and mouth They know where they're going; they're always there They never had a place to start Oh, there’s a far better chance that I will win, So get back in the car, we’ll take a spin Never mind all the colours and trees you’ll see; Try to focus here on you and me
2.
Are you leaving? Or just getting in? It’s hard for me to tell Are you staying? Or just waiting out? It’s hard for me to tell You won’t be so lucky No ghost, no mess So long, my friend You're buzzing around my head So long, my friend What’s the story now? Just wait it out? It’s hard for me to tell

On the Fence 04:37
I'm on the fence; Observing, wandering Which way to slip? Which way to borrow another step? Which way to God? I'll cut my losses now Well, it had never even fazed you! Am I right? Am I easily swayed? And with a minor blow, You're perfect in lovers' eyes; And so it goes, It's something to advertise I'm all liquored up; And you're a house; I used to visit How I get so nostalgiac when I'm fed up Am I right? Am I easily swayed?
4.
Your words are well received; Finding it hard to breathe What, do you have simple thoughts? Your purpose is in question; Your will is strong and destined; And I don't know why I stay Looking out to view was a gamble; Opportunity looked, Complacency ruled Oh, you have had too many; Trust me, I know Pacing around back and forth; Never planted in one place; And I don't know why I stay Lose the Attitude, Lose the Attitude, Lose the Attitude
5.
My head’s the lightest that it’s ever been; Perhaps you could help lift my legs For all the ideas never to return; I’ve never seen a smile quite like that My head’s the lightest it’s ever been Just a little heavy in step, Just a little heavy in step Your hair’s the darkest that I’ve ever seen; A race to see the top will prove nothing I won’t concede, you won’t succeed; That's my bet I’ve never seen a smile quite like yours Just a little heavy in step, Just a little heavy in step

Five more and you'll be home, son; You didn't expect me to run Get some wine; we'll fill our faces I could not avoid all of your graces All of us; We're in it for the haul, Or at least until we hit that wall When inside; just like you said My tongue tasted the stalest bread You would knock, and I would answer I sure am glad I found her I sure hope my mind don't get as feeble, 'Cause I thought this church would have more people
8.
You move too fast, I will never catch you; Colour on the lines, it’s the surest sign; When the sweet grass grows In between the boards of a run down shed You'll want to mind what’s said; Or you’ll wind up dead Because the flashing lights brighten up your eyes; When the dimming smiles are controlled by dials; I can see the followers you choose; I can see when you will start to lose You know what you look like with your eyes closed, You know what you look like with your eyes closed, You know what you look like with your eyes closed; When smoke meets cloud we’ll see who cares When you’ve receded back to the lowest tide, It will never feel better, even when you cry; When the sweet grass grows In between the boards of a run down shed You'll want to mind what’s said; Or you’ll wind up dead
9.
Listen, Feel, Absorb, Relax, Reflect; How'd it go? What do you think? Take it all in; Take it all apart; Take it in stride Your eyes are wide; As are mine We're stuck here; Oh, I just realized He told me he was numb today; I didn't know what to say, So I smiled like I understood Behold the man; Can't handle his plan; So I'll sit down again; The place I do every week The new day is none the wiser, and neither am I; We're stuck here; Oh, I just realized
10.
11.
Patience, my patient; You’ll be alright Colour on your napkin, But stay in the lines The spot on the ground; Confuses your mind A thousand times you’ve seen it But you won’t find comfort in there Each glance a little change; A darker blue Every time you mention it; Receding back to Patience, my patient; The volume’s down At an even setting, Just how you need it Think of the last time you held her hand Followed by a November; But you won't find comfort in there; Comfort, despair; Comfort
