Abandoned 02:50
Jungle for lawn Dandelion pond Tree trunk painted white Trash can tipped on side Untouched Gutters filled with leaves Helicopter seeds Tire flower pot Junk mail shoved in slot Untouched Throw a rock Bird bath cracked in half Worn out welcome mat Windows boarded shut Rusted pick-up truck Untouched Throw a rock and run
2.
The Thaw 02:45
One single sheet Holds all the keys To all I love All folded up Sun beats down bright Snow loses fight Small rivers float My paper boat Away Gone 'round the bend Down hills and glens Through fields unknown Then safely home Again I'm not worried now I'm not worried now

To Pieces 03:33
Broken on arrival So we gather up what's left of us And put the pieces where we think they go This one is heavy, maybe It goes over here by chance And that one over there, be careful It has cut me more than once Heading off to battle Or returning from, with either one We put our pieces where they shouldn't go This slot is empty, maybe It got lost along the way And that one wouldn't go, I'll have to grow To where it stays in place Although the sun is in our eyes We leave the shadows behind I know it's hard to see, it's hard to see It's hard to see but I believe I'll meet you at the table Where the Father's love will wait on us And put our pieces where they need to go And if I'm ready, maybe This time I will be made whole Or even more, my soul restored And everyone made beautiful Although the sun is in our eyes We leave the shadows behind I know it's hard to see, hard to see It's hard to see but I believe

Afraid 06:14
I am unprepared to meet you everywhere I'm scared and need repairs I am unprepared to meet you everywhere I'm scared and need more prayer I am unprepared to meet you everywhere I'm scared and need repairs I am unprepared to meet you everywhere I'm scared and need more prayer Not closed, but closer Not closed, but closer Not closed, but closer Not closed, but closer to you I am unprepared to meet you everywhere I'm scared and need repairs I am unprepared to meet you everywhere I'm scared and need more prayer I am unprepared to meet you everywhere I swear I need repairs I am unprepared to meet you everywhere I'm afraid I need more prayer Not closed, but closer Not closed, but closer Not closed, but closer Not closed, but closer to you

Destination 02:35
Automobiles and rolling wheels That stop and go and slowly pull Their cargo to the next event Our pilot steers with patience years Of brake lights, horns, and radios Have formed like prints on wet cement Packed inside we play I-Spy And cheat and cry and duke it out Till no one speaks and fall asleep We hum along and wake and yawn At waysides, pumps, and burger joints To tumble out and bend our knees We pile back in while bickering On who's got dibs and who sits where And someone's hogging all the grapes Then settle down without a sound And come to terms with where we are And rest in knowing we are on our way
6.
Although your feet don't reach the ground When you sit beneath the crown On a throne that throws you out Because you failed to pass the test So now you're floating high above And you feel you've had enough But your landing gear is stuck Don't panic, take a deeper breath 'Cause it's a major victory When you hit that six by three Without any luxuries I mean, you're not the only one Upstairs the people on the street Gather 'round to laugh and weep While you're down here counting sheep Rest up, the journey's just begun
