256 (kicking it )

She says she’s getting out
She’s had enough
Every week
We work from sun up to sun down
Try to hide these scars
Here in the 256
Just trying to get enough
enough of you
It’s real
To live on and live without
—-
We’re real
——
It takes whatever we have left
Back roads and memory
Dream and a nightmare
Coming back in
She’s Kicking it in the 256
The train slows
Just trying to get by
Second hand help doesn’t reach down here
It’s just us
Reaching for these skies
Have you ever heard the mountains cry?
We’re on fire tonight
It’s just us
In the valley tonight
We will survive
We will survive
Kicking it out here in the 256
