Track Name: Water
I don't know how to take this in stride

With vows we haven't taken
Just who are we forsakin'
Ever since we started moving
It felt like we were losing

I just don't know how to take this in stride

Ever since it started rainin'
There's nothing but complainin'
Send word across the nation
Water is irrigation

I don't know how to take this in stride
Track Name: Wading In
I'm wading in
Not screaming out
I'm hoping to find something inside
Worth waiting for

I'm wading in
Can't put this down
I'm hoping to find and innocent mind
To lead us on

We're wading in
Can't burn me out
I'm dying to find a chord and a line, yes, but
Something more
Can't wait no more
Track Name: Knoxville Song
I can feel you
With my eyes closed
Softy stirring
Losing your clothes

There's this feeling
Slowly dying
No more heartaches
Left inside me

Let's spend some time together
No obligations
No bitter pills going down
Let's burn the road I'm travelling
Take my record
Turn it up
I made it for you

I'm so tired
Of never sleeping
Complicated by
Endless dreaming

There's a secret
Everybody knows
There's this feeling
It's so wonderful

Let's spend some time together
No obligations
No bitter pills going down
Let's burn the road I'm travelling
Take my record
Turn it up
I made it for you

I could feel you
With my eyes closed
But now we're waking
Losing all hope
Track Name: No One Wants to Know
Outside looking in
For an inside view
I've wasted all my time for all my life
But I could change for you
But then you just leave me here alone with nowhere to go
I'm sick of feeling unwanted
And like this sadness I'm flaunting
The feeling's unwanted

The glass against my lips feels like a kiss
As the night creeps along
It's time to see how ugly I can be
No one wants to know

Black sky turning blue
For a late night fool
I've lost myself in dreams of you and me
But dreaming just won't do
There was a time when I thought everything would be alright
But now I'm starting to doubt it
And, no, I'm not proud of this
I'm never proud

The glass against my lips feels like fist
And my mind's moving slow
It's time to see how ugly I can be
No one wants to know
Track Name: Ballad of Max and Grace
There's a girl outside
With fear in her eyes
Wrapped in a blanket with holes
Trying to survive the cold
She says
If you let me in
We could be friends

There's a boy in the yard
Fast asleep under the car
Dreams of getting inside
With no hunger to fight
He says
Will you give me a chance?
'Cause I might not last

When we cry - It's not always bad
There's just something inside that needs to be said

When we fight - It's not always wrong
But it's a difficult thing to explain in a song

When we hide - We're not always scared
But then it's not always you who comes in from out there

When we run
Sometimes it's just for fun
Track Name: I Can't Decide
I can't decide I can't decide I won't try
Which path is mine which path is mine
There's no time
I can't decide I can't decide I won't try

Should I make the drive?
Or should I stay the night?
But I'll still play it right
What do I do this for?
I'd hoped for something more
But it's always either/or
Alright.

I can't decide I can't decide I won't try
Which path is mine which path is mine
There's no time
I can't decide I can't decide T-R-Y

Should I nod and smile?
It's just a little while
We could still reconcile
I'd hoped this would last
This is happening too fast
I wish I hadn't asked
Alright

This is all a blur
So, should I call you sir?
You'll get what you deserve
I'd hoped you'd become
A little more undone
I guess I'm not the one
Alright
Track Name: Panic
There is no other way that describes how I'm feeling right now
There is no other way

In love or panic
I don't know which for sure
But I know that I would want you
If I could pick myself up off the floor
That's for sure

There is no other one that I want to be with right now
There is no other one

In love or panic
I don't know which for sure
But I know that I would want you
If I could pick myself up off the floor
That's for sure
Track Name: For Now
My mind's so clear
I'm not gonna lose myself tonight
I'm not gonna change my mind
It's clear
I'd rather be somewhere else
For now
It's not gonna work this time
This time

This path's so clear
I think that I've lost myself inside
I'm thinking of someone else
It's clear
I'll probably change my mind
Tonight
It's not gonna work this time
This time
Track Name: Indirect Ways
Yeah, you're screaming out
Such sensitive guys
I'll bet it's a surprise for you to hear
There are more indirect ways
To say what you've got to say
And you're dreaming up
Such delicate dreams
But the ways and means don't end with you and me
There's no more innocent gaze
No more time for "it was just a phase"

Can we keep this up?
This rigorous pace
Can we keep this up?

But, then I was thinking
That nothing worth singing about should come so easy
So I'll keep believing in something I know is going nowhere

There's no reason now
Just barely 19
Such harmless things don't mean as much to me
But I'm no patron saint
And there's no reason for thanks
