Track Name: East of the West - The Sailboat Appendages
Open yourself like a sail... and have the courage to follow where the wind will take you
Track Name: East of the West - Theme for A Cowboy
on a table/his mother bled/unalarming/the doctor said /one big push now, I can see a head/the doctor frowned and from his brow/pooled sweat came pouring down/to mix with the red that now paints the floor/his mother’s howls are the sounds you'd hear when angels die/the doctor quickly hands her him to tend to her/she kissed his lips without concern/and whispered her last words

like a statue... he wouldn't bend/years of tempting roll off his chest/he'd hold his head up high and bat his eye/his natty hair and stubbled chin would give a grin and you'd begin/to wonder how this world could go and pass him by/he'd have a no-greed philosophy... take only what you need

he'd say/you've made yourself too thirsty, when waters plenty/or/if you’re overflowing, you'll be empty

in a meadow/a foliage nest/etched in granite a headstone says/here lies a cowboy... he could walk on water/he wouldn't let this empire make him hollow
