Clutch “Bertha’s Big Back Yard”

Bertha’s Big Back Yard of vertebrae

Largest selection this side of the Mississippi

Oooh, you won’t find them anywhere else

Free pony rides for the children

Coffee and doughnuts for the adults

Open seven days a week except high holy holidays

Come on down and pick yourself up a whale bone

Clutch Son Of Virginia

It was the morning of All Saint’s Day, ’98

When that old blind dog started roaming around the graveyard

Wouldn’t have bothered me so much

Were he not walking on his hind legs and smoking cigars

Recite my lineage and genealogy

You’ve got to know your history, son of Virginia

Everybody’s in the church believing they’re a sinner

And looking for a sign from the true son of Virginia

When the storm blew over we made our way

To the old hay wain to infiltrate the sarcophagus

By the dim light of a narrow window we saw

The God’s honest truth staring right back at us

Recite your lineage and genealogy

You’ve got to know your history, son of Virginia

Everybody’s in the church believing they’re a sinner

And looking for a sign from the true son of Virginia

Stare into the embers on the first of November

And remember you were born a true son of Virginia

I was thrown to the ground as my world broke asunder

Truly we are living in an age of wonder

Truly we are living in an age of wonder

It was the morning of All Saint’s Day, ’98

When that old blind dog started calling me associate

Wouldn’t have bothered me so much were it not for the fact

That was the truth of it

Recite our lineage and genealogy

You’ve got to know your history,

Son of Virginia Stare into the embers on the first of November

And remember you were born a true son of Virginia

I was thrown to the ground as my world broke asunder

Truly we are living in an age of wonder

I wept like a child as the son rose above her

Truly we are living in an age of wonder.

Clutch Motherless Child

Every last blind pulled when I walk down the street.

The only sound I hear is my tired heartbeat.

Sometimes I feel just like a motherless child.

This place once had a name.

The people once had faces.

In every town I find it’s the same sad situation.

Sometimes I feel just like a countryless man.

My father tried to break me, my mother she tried to raise,

The county correct me from my wild ways.

I once saw figures about a mile off.

So I waited in the woods until they were gone.

Sometimes I feel just like a wandering dog.

My father tried to break me, my mother she tried to raise,

The county correct me from my wild ways.

Clutch Rapture Of Riddley Walker

“Read Russel Hoban’s ‘Riddley Walker.’ It’ll explain everything.”

Went to the doctor, to see what could be given.

He said, “Sorry, but you’ve got to do your own livin’.”

Went to the pastor, to hear what he would say.

He said, “Sorry, son, come back later some time after judgment day.”

There is no safe way out of here. No passage below the dungeon.

No mother ship will save you. So goes the rapture of Riddley Walker.

Churchyard was empty, schoolyard was bare.

Wind in the streets, wind in the air.

Pockets of diamonds, nothing to buy.

Scream out hello and get no reply.

Victims of zombies convene in the park

While any man with dignity makes an easy mark.

Heaven is a long ways away. Heaven is a long, long, long, long ways away.

There is no safe way out of here. No passage below the dungeon.

No mothership will come save you. The rapture of Riddley Walker.

How many-cools of Addom? Party cools of stone?

Hart of the wood shudder. Eusa roam.

Drop-John been climbing on Riddley’s back. Follow the power, a natural fact.

Orfing & Ardship, hardship is plain. Hardly Goodparley is ever the same.

Shadows and phantom’s convene in the snow.

Among the low whispers are voices you know.

Heaven is a long ways away. Heaven is a long, long, long, long ways away.

There is no safe way out of here. No passage below the dungeon.

No mothership will come save you. The rapture of Riddley Walker.

How many-cools of Addom? Party cools of stone?

Hart of the wood shudder. Eusa roam.
