Lay It All Down

I crawl out from the sea
To my footprints with my knees
And I’m laughing out loud
As I roll with my back to the ground

Apple down from the sky
It wrings right through my mind
Then I lay it all down
Just the way that it falls to the ground

You can ride my train it’s free
And it won't run out of time

What they see is a crooked line
What they hear is crooked time
Cause I lay it all down
Just the way that I fall to the ground

No knots or benders in my mind
Are you brave enough to walk my line
Feel like I’m rocking your boat
It ain’t me what has to keep it afloat

But you can ride my train it’s free
And it won’t run out of time

Walk a steel line, whistle my tune
Life’s a riddle like a rock in my shoe
I throw my ear to the ground
Gonna catch that old blue coming round

If you want it, you got it
If you lose it then I’ll let it go
But you'll be crying out loud
As I roll from the heart of this town

Cause you can ride my train it’s free
And it won’t run out of time

I crawl back to the sea
For the moon I could not reach
And I’m laughing out loud
As I roll with my back to the clouds

I lay it all down
Just the way that I fall to the ground
I lay it all down
Just the way that I’m lost and I’m found
