about

Boneset is comprised of songs written years ago and just recently. They laid out best in near-chronological order. Dark to light to dark, the album overends as a mobius strip, its songs seeded with connection and release, overcoming fear with heart...birds, bones, surrender.

We're currently touring these songs all over the place. Cellist Isabel and I are visiting the west and east coasts of the US, Ireland & the UK, and Europe this Winter & Spring 2014. Come hear what you hear here: dianecluck.info/shows

I write songs with the intention that there's space within them for you to enter and discover and receive. Willkommen. I feel gratitude in doing this work and hope you will enjoy.

-Diane

Track Name: (preview) Maybe a Bird
when i die
i may try to find you
be forewarned
i may be a bird or a boy born poor
or made in a country
planes won’t travel
and not see you anymore

comin’ around again
will you know me ?
and see who i am?
there in the lines of gesture and face
there in the words...
there in the words...

when i die
i may try to find you
i’m letting you know
i may be a bird or a boy born poor
or made in a country
planes won’t travel
and not see you anymore
Track Name: (preview) Content to Reform
i am a place you can still get to
with your body and my here coordinates
my mind keeps my corporal self subordinate
in answer it withers away…

and i was a room and i had thick walls
kicking them in till everything falls
they’re fixing me up as i wander the halls
oh will i be back here again ?

and i die and i die, discarding my skulls
crushed into powder and spun into bowls
made into mortar for plugging up holes
content to reform and to break again

i die and i die, sloughing off cells
sea creatures crawl from out crowded shells
clappers fall out from big, rusty bells
everything spends out its day and then
its content will reform until it breaks again
Track Name: (preview) Draw Me Out
you draw me out
draw me up out like a splinter
from my own life
and i come as i was
as i would be
from a glad, untroubled mind
lifted up

learn to say what you need
there is relief in letting somebody know
desires held too close within, grown dim
will delight in being shown

live your dreams beyond your measure
wading through shores of shame
into waves of pleasure
rise from sleep
now, greet the day
by grace of the sun grow in green from the grey
cornsilk kisses brushing my face

you draw me out
draw me up out
like a splinter from my own life
and i come as i was
as i would be
from a glad, untroubled mind
Track Name: (preview) Not Afraid to Be Kind
do what you do—i don’t mind
i’m not afraid to be kind
i follow through and i find
i’m not afraid to be kind

do what you do—you are you
though if you’re scared, be prepared
that here that fear won’t be shared
one must be brave to unwind
and i’m not afraid to be kind

do i know? yes, i do
how pain follows you
when you won’t give in
to gentler ways shown to you
swing like a door, really wide
past yourself, flow outside
what frames you hanged in your mind
that kept you safe for a time
yet so afraid to be kind

so do what you do—i don’t mind
i’m not afraid to be kind
i follow through and i find
i’m not afraid to be kind

do what you do—you are you
though if you’re scared, be prepared
that here that fear won’t be shared
one must be brave to unwind
this dull place will be shined
unafraid to be kind
Track Name: (preview) Why Feel Alone?
hi
i just got awake
open to life of a new kind

hi
i’d been away
i worked hard to lay off
freak guards-of-mind

woe wore me down
tore my gown
new life flows
growin’ out my beard
wire-y down flame that shows
why feel alone?
oh, why feel alone?

hi
i’d been away
i worked hard to lay off
freak guards-of-mind...

who rang?
it’s your ride waits outside
come out home
dang/dank, cold and queer in your house
come out, homebody
why feel alone?
oh, why feel alone?
why feel alone?
hey, why feel alone?
Track Name: (preview) Trophies
i went to the warehouse
to trade in my trophies
they scratch off the name
and they buff up the plates
and then put the blank bodies
back up in the window
awaiting engraving
of winners and dates

it’s so nice to see you
hey...hey, don’t i know you?
tender green shoots of you
grow through the yard
medals hung heavy
my neck wouldn’t let me
so i gave ‘em up good
though the giving was hard

i went to the warehouse
to trade in my trophies
trumpets and ribbons
my trove and its trimmings
and it’s so nice to see you!
hey...hey, don’t i know you?

how good it feels here in this place
pass up the goal for the view now
something opens up
i take in space
Track Name: (preview) Heartloose
somethin’ loosened around my heart
from where it was bound
it fluttered around
this funny motion first mistaken as attack
i realize and step back
with real eyes i step back
and let it happen

knitted so snug inside my chest
iron lungs, ribs as rungs
those who care to try and climb me
sometimes say it’s hard to find me
still in reflex i would shout
when i began spilling out
weeping clearly as a blister
‘hey i’m here’, you almost missed her

and i have so much for you!
do you know how i get shy to show you
i fill up, tender, with a glow
fluff and puff
as i try to show you
display my falling feathers
as they leave me in this weather...
Track Name: (preview) Sara
broad spirit comes back
along the way
comes to me red, black
with a lot to say
she sit my tail down
pull the wishbone wide
she ream my head out
along the way

she dig my hole, then,
she toss me in
her dirt rain/reign dark down
my falling/fallen skin
stripped so lonely
i can’t even cry
i lay my head down
along the way

Sara, Kali, Ereshkigal, Sara
Sara, Kali, Ereshkigal, Sara

broad spirit comes back
she lay me out flat
she pin my tail down
pull the wishbone wide
she ream my head out
her dirt rain/reign dark down
can’t even cry...
can’t even cry...
