"The Drifter" as written by Blake Carney Allison and Joseph David Walser....
He’s been chasing white lines across the open sky
Following them far away from the ones he left behind
And even though he’s misses her
He was born a traveler

White line after white line he inhales
White line after white line he inhales

He’s a drifter and a gambler
He’s a lonely rolling stone
He’s a dreamer and a rambler
And the highway is his home
All the pain that he’s collected
On a long and wicked road
It’s in his eyes
But the dream in inside the drifter never dies

People turn to vampires on these veins of interstate
Hearts gift-wrapped barbed wire as the move from place to place
And he can nail them on the wind
The demons chasing after him

White line after white line he inhales
White line after white line he inhales

He’s a drifter and a gambler
He’s a lonely rolling stone
He’s a dreamer and a rambler
And the highway is his home
All the pain that he’s collected
On a long and wicked road is in his eyes
But the dream in inside the drifter never dies

And even though he misses her
He was born a traveler
White line after white line he inhales
White line after white line he exhales

    Song MeaningI feel that the song is describing a man who never had a home and is very nomadic. He is addicted to crack, as seen in the lyrics "White line after while line he inhales.", and has many other problems. I seems like he wants to give up this life style because he has a girl that he loves dearly, but feels like he cannot because this is what he is meant to be like.
