"Lump Sum" as written by and Justin Deyarmond Edison Vernon....
Sold my cold knot
A heavy stone
Sold my red horse for a venture home
To vanish on the bow
Settling slow

Fit it all, fit it in the doldrums
(Or so the story goes)
Color the era
Film it's historical

My mile could not
Pump the plumb
In my arbor 'till my ardor
Trumped every inner inertia
Lump sum

All at once
Rushing from the sub-pump
(Or so the story goes)
Balance we won't know
We will see when it gets warm

    General CommentHe stated in an interview that this was his first song he wrote, when he just arrived at the cabin. I think the lyrics are more or less a collection of moments on his way there. First he had to sell some stuff or so, to get the money to survive for three months. (sold my red horse for a venture home) Also the lines : all at once, rushing from the sub-pump, can be taken quiet literaly. Rushing from the pump as he fills up his pickup or sth and then he nicely finishes it of with : We will see when it gets warm...so as I said, leaving from home to his cabin, not knowing what to expect or when it will get better
