Like Water is our breakup song, but, mercifully, it is not autobiographical. Having watched from a distance a few relationships go down in flames, and weathering a few rough goes at love before we met, this song harnesses the energy of those experiences and brings it to you served on a platter of alt country and steamy blues.


It's been a long, slow smoldering fire, and I just can't get warm
and all the embers have burned down to ash, now the dust is mist in my eyes
and you, oh you cloister yourself,
you can't come for Christmas 'cause you're smothered in doubt
and I, well I hope till the dawn,
or is the dusk? The days are reversed like the water,
I'm drowning, I'm breathing fire.

It's been a dark and dirty medieval battle and I just can't boil that oil
and all the drawbridges must have been lifted like fog by a mystery hand
and you, oh you arm yourself with ancient weapons while guilt keeps the score
and I, oh I fight 'till I'm spent.
Why do we pretend like the water?
I'm drowning, I'll set you on fire

They are watching you file down the valley!
You sacrifice them while you lose the fight
Oh you've asked for this, and you've asked to flow like the water
I'm drowning, I'm playing with fire

It's been a first degree burn on the skin that just doesn't seem to heal
and all the sympathy once in this room has vanished with mythical ease
and you, well you lie to yourself
you won't make a difference, and you will not get out
and I, I think all hope is gone
or is it you've run, like water?
I'm drowning, and I'll drag you with me
