"Ashes" (MP3)
Misheard Lyrics:
Ashes to ashes, and dust to dust
That's what you do with lots of fluff
Stuff can be buried in ground
New days are yet to be found.

Ashes to ashes, and dust to dust
That's what's become of our love and trust
Hush, don't you make a sound
You're gonna let me down.

Her name was Truth

Her name was Truth
She was a horrible liar

"Jah Work" (MP3)
Misheard Lyrics:
Tell me do you really want to be cute and tan
'Cause a car speaks louder, be a polished man
Why would you settle for any other plan
You're a high class hopeful, American Man.
Original Lyrics:
Tell me do you really know your brother man
'Cause a heart speaks louder than a color can
Why would you even shake a brother's hand
If you're not going to help him stand?

Misheard Lyrics:
When all the past is for stakin'
Distant whirlpools mean nothing
That's when dreams become the mean.

When all the past has been forsaken
Distant church bells no longer ring
That's the sound of a heart taken.

She stoked a breeze, and I know how to try.

She spoke to me, but I could not reply.
"Widow of a Living Man" (MP3)
Misheard Lyrics:
Mama, why does he fear he's been told?
Why does he act like he's mold?
How long will he sit seated in the tide?
Does he think that he is blind?
He is a ditto, he is a ditto
Of human kind.
Original Lyrics:
Mama, why does he treat me so cold?
Why do I feel so old?
How long has he treated me unkind?
Have I always been so blind?
I am widow, I am a widow
Of a living man.
