Track Name: Fishing (EP Version)
You can't go fishing for long
‘til you catch something
Maybe a fish or a thought
you'll catch something

Surely you could throw it back again
or you could dine
Or let it hang gasping on your line
while you decide

You can't go walking for long
til you meet something
Maybe a scar on the road
sets your soul stumbling

Surely you could let it brush your breast
and then be gone
Or let love press the archives of your heart
and move along
While you carry it on...and on...

You can't go fishing for long
‘til you catch something
Maybe the spark that you lost
illuminates everything

Surely you could dampen it again,
or you could shine
Or let it fade on you fishing line
while you decide...
What will it be?
Track Name: Bone by Bone (EP Version)
When I was eating peaches
Mama called me on the phone
She echoed like a drifter
She said "Baby, please come home,
I need you home”

In my unraveled sweater
in my ageless stomping boots
I drove home to Mama
to see what baby girl could do
To see what I could...

CHORUS:
Home, home going home
Bone by bone going home
Home, home going home
Bone by bone I'm going home

He was in the kitchen
Mama fed him with a spoon
and how his eyes are sparkless
and my father cannot move
What am I supposed to...

CHORUS
...bone by bone he's going home

Up we lifted Papa
From his wheels onto the bed
and I read him stories
like he did when we were kids
like he read when we were...

CHORUS
...bone by bone we’re going home
Track Name: Clean Money
Racy, Black, and Lacy sells caresses
to the lonely men she meets.
Sticky $20's bread and butter the addiction
Rebate for her grief

The money keeps it clean
like hospital-cornered sheets
The money seems clean...

He with weary cigarette
seeks company on every Thursday eve
He waits for love's epiphany
then slinks away with sadness on his cheek

The money keeps it clean
like hospital-cornered sheets
The money seems clean...

Though he brings her everything
most everything spills through her lacy arms
Though she sways to capture him
she's captured by her own seductive charms

The money keeps it clean
like hospital-cornered sheets

Racy, Black, and Lacy sells caresses
to the lonely men she meets.
The money seems clean...
Track Name: Stir My Honey
On the stage in Baltimore
thinking of your...
On the subway in NY
thinkin of your...

...carnivorous eyes devouring me
when you want to stir my honey

So I'm gasping in the afternoon
thinking of your...
In my grandma's living room
thinking of your...

...simmering hands arresting me
when you want to stir my honey

I'm counting down the hungry days
Lover I can nearly taste
the merciless pleasure that you give to me
Come on Baby, stir my honey
Track Name: Excalibur (EP Version)
I will give you my Excalibur
you wield it like no other king can
Twist the blade, undress my heart
where you can heal your battled hand

CHORUS:
Lay me down my king
Warrior, I will lay you down
Lay me down my king
Warrior, I will lay you down

I will lead you where I wish I did not live
Will you plant me violets there?
and fold me in the dawning of your arms?
Will you catch my weary tears?

CHORUS

Restless One come rest with me
Lay your vigil down
Love's the treasure of your wanderings
May love bejewel your crown

CHORUS
...Warrior, I won’t let you down

I will give you my Excalibur
You wield it like no other king can
