lyrics

I go to my boat quote on quote
There's a solace there
At loose ends
We went out Tuesday night
With batteries and water
It's ok, just go overboard
This is what it was like
With whatever's bound to happen
On sea's edge moored at Squatter's Cover

Well I go to my boat, float in my boat
Row in my boat, I sail in my boat
Rock in my boat, alone in my boat
Consoled on the whole, consoled

A crow and a jet crossed in the sky
A feather ahead and an engine behind
A meeting of kinds, of bodies and minds
Consoled on the whole, consoled

And at the end of the day when they locked us down
My cot my lamp my sink, a couple of books on the ground
Almost free under lock and key
Consoled on the whole, consoled

Well I work at the shop and I sleep on the ship
I haven't touched a drop since that last little dip
And I might join the church or resume my search
Consoled on the whole, consoled
