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?

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

Clean Money 03:57
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...

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

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
