c'mon, now morning is coming morning is coming get your ass on out in the sun my love fell asleep uncovered last week she was burnt away by the sun merciless and driving heat from every corner merciless unending heat from every corner the hand that pitches horseshoes hitting ringers in the sun the horse will recollect his shoes when all the gaming's done and hear me hitting ringers! I'm gonna pitch until I'm gone the sundial shadow of a stallion stretches out long across the lawn merciless and driving heat from every corner merciless unending heat from every corner c'mon, now morning is coming morning is coming get your ass on out in the sun c'mon, now morning is coming get on out into the sun

[whoah, baby sandy ree like a hog loves corn sandy ree kickin' up dust sandy ree]* i'll live my lust sandy ree when you're in trouble with the laws that don't exist for you at all whoah, baby what can i say ? jump the line or walk away jump the line ! or jump the line or walk away oh, lord nothin' but god nothin' but god in the way of itself we are, lord, nothin' but god but somethin' that got in the way of itself tryin' to get out of the way of itself... *lines in brackets from an African-American spiritual, creator/creatress unknown

oh, for many--how you say ?... ( words are getting in the way ) years--that's it ! i still decide i want to carry on oh, for now, all i see-- i walk & carry parts of me as parts of me crawl on beside-- i want to carry on how long ? how long ? how long ? how long ? how long... how long ? how long... how long ? and i see now how long and i see now how long

greyskulls now descend from me Kali Ma says, i would bet this on the strength of my uterus-- shed these and be light and when it's time to invoke these bloody holes through which to see open wide comin' home there's a crossbones nailed to your door yeah, yeah you're the skull, at home, on the cross bones over your door yeah, yeah mystery over mind mystery over mind mystery over mind ohhh mystery over mind mystery over mind mystery over mind oh why would you want to explain away these things you find ? why try and explain what is mystery over mind ? mystery over mind mystery over mind mind mystery over mind mind, mind... ohhh there's a crossbones nailed to your door yeah, yeah when you're the skull, at home, take those crossbones down from your door !

all my delight came out like a hock coughed up in the mornin' saw in the light what colors i didn't know how should i call them saint someone said to "die daily"--die daily implies be born daily open my head-- a phoenix & doves fly out in the morning out in the day, now what bird-dogs suss me out in the field, yo up from the ground how i hear them snapping up at my heels, yo hot on my head what light makes the heat makes the fire makes the ash oh i thought i was dead a phoenix & doves fly out in the morning saint someone said to "die daily"--die daily implies be born daily open my head a phoenix & doves fly out a phoenix & doves fly out a phoenix & doves fly out a phoenix & doves fly out

have i told you how i like to see a man submit to ecstasy with all his inhibitions free and moaning like his mother? close his eyes and float from me ecstatic in his buoyancy cut loose and warm unthinkingly adrift in beatless wonder he's hidden down in pastures' grass as passersby are heading past at once unbound, the sun at last can shine on him no hotter he gives a welcome unto me we blind each other, joyfully and blind in joy, we do become much more like sister, brother steady home, man i'll ride you home and tether you tenderly by a stream let you drink alone and dream and i tell you i love to see a man submit to ecstasy with all his inhibitions free and moaning like his mother close his eyes and float from me ecstatic in his buoyancy cut loose, no harm will come to thee adrift in beatless wonder he's half a million miles from home he is home tho he's half a million miles from home, boys half a million miles from home he is home tho he's half a million miles from home, boys...

about

This was my first US tour. I had the great opportunity to collaborate with Anders Griffen, a drummer whose painterly and melodic approach gave new lives to my songs.

I'm especially thankful to photographer, musician and friend Eric Lippe, who traveled with us and documented the tour through film, video, and live recordings.

♡ Diane
