"Catherine" as written by and Polly Jean Harvey....
catherine. (repeat). beautiful mother of inseparable brothers return from the ocean bring us seaweed for flowers there's no trespassing where there are no boarders. catherine. (repeat). only child and lonely orphan restless mother restless children. daughter of the carpenter and good mother mrs. mimms. haunted by the cancer that crept in and took them. catherine (repeat). breaking bread in the market and filling your pockets with crumbs for the birds who return in teh spring. while your children disperse with words on their wings. catherine (repeat). holy vision of inseparable children return from across the ocean of great loss leave sorrow on the banks, throw your tears to the sharks, we'll be there to recieve you when you come back to us. we're the only children of the lonely orphan. catherine.
