Track Name: Postman
Postman in the grey and blue
Can I sleep among the bags while you drive?
I'll take the wheel after a time
Got a jaw full of foolish words

How many miles
Will we get there by the morning?
Stop just short of the ocean
I'll find my way to town

And I'd spend my last dollar on a walking cane
Shining silver handle, initials engraved
And a hard wandering stick leading down to the earth
But is it worth wearing my soles to the dirt?

There are a few things I found
Do you mind if I piece them together?
I've got all the fixings for a letter
But none of the letters for lines

Some of these people back here
They've got minds worth thieving
Some are hoping and reeling
Others are sky high

I'm just hoping to string them in line
One by one make the words into mine
I think it's there, just not crystalized
Like you'd see the stars, if not for the sun in your eyes
Track Name: Beast
Every beast I chased led me down a path
Lined with waste from a quiet past

And all the faces there though they are few
Have born new lines, they are older too

And every word I wrote stumbled down
To the paper thin and barely bound

Road I lit to see the eyes
Of my long lost friends, the ones I recognize

And where are they? Spread far around
Not like my dreams, so closely bound

Yet here we are in the mountain's eye
Just a couple of kids holding tight
Track Name: Vertebrae
Did you watch my vertebrae
Slendering out
Or did you watch your own?

Stretching skin over the bone
I've grown
Learning to be proud

Slip under the tongue
A watchmaking kit
Nothing you can do with it

I tried to birth a new time
Forged from a younger spine of mine
One less unsatisfied
You know the game

Filled with a childish pride
Knowing the world from all sides
Handsome and earnest and wise
You know the game
Track Name: Walking The Line
When I woke from the picture it was nearly real
And I remembered each movement from the spinning reel
And how just like a wheel, it didn't consider the way I did feel
But it was not everlasting

Brush the fog from my eyes to reveal something clean
Looking through an open window to the nearly unseen
But how the lightness of the morning turns to the eve
And stars go funneling from you

And I listen to you whisper when you come down
Closing slowly, decrescendo, till not a sound
Why does it trick me every time?
You keep me walking the line
