about

Concluding track of "Not For Sale".

lyrics

let us set a-float in a wooden rowing boat
away from all the noise and stress and fear
bring a bottle too, we may need a drop or two
to see us through this mortal vale of tears

sometimes in the evening, when my day is done
I step back in wonder that I made it here alive
so let's make our way to the deep end of the bay
and let the little fishes kiss our eyes

when I was young and strong, in the dusk or in the dawn
I'd drop a line and take whate'er would bite
now I have a longer look and I do not bait the hook
until a finer fish comes swimming by

the only thing that matters when when all is said and done
is trying to do the best you can while you are still alive
so let's make our way to the deep end of the bay
and let the little fishes kiss our eyes


the only thing that matters when all is said and done
is knowing that the ones you love are happy and alive
if your maker calls don't pay him no heed at all
just let the little fishes kiss your eyes

take me out upon the lake, the last trip I'll ever make
with a burlap sack and four score pounds of lies
once I'm dead and gone, stuff me in and send me down
and let the little fishes kiss my eyes
