About "Wishbone":
I was involved in an automobile accident and I had no insurance. I needed surgery (my hand was going numb) so I sued the other drive (It was his fault) to pay for the operation. The Lawyers and doctors were a pack of vultures so I wrote this song about them. I introduced this song to "Wyscan" / "Third Wish," and it was the last rehearsal we had before we broke up. I didn't like the way we were taking the song musically, so I changed direction for my solo album. I guess a lot of the anger in the performance was about the band.
Wishbone
c 1998 Dean Madonia

I can see hem circling behind the doe of their eyes
You'd think they had fasted not feasted
How much of me is enough for their size?
The were just trying to "help" me, pretending that they were my friends
Then they put me back in the water and turned on the burner again

Wishbone
Drying in the kitchen
Waiting to be broken, by greasy, greedy hands
Wishbone, I am just a token, of someone's superstition
Their wish is my demand

I can feel them pulling
Clutching and grabbing their prize
And I feel that I'm already broken
Trying to sort out the truth from their lies

Somewhere on paper I know I've approved this charade
Sooner or later
We sleep in the beds that we've made

Wishbone
Drying in the kitchen
Waiting to be broken, by greasy, greedy hands
Wishbone, I am just a token, of someone's superstition
Their wish is my demand
