Following a crooked path through church music, classroom music education, teaching private lessons, and drumming for the pagan community, somehow Cathy McManamon ended up as Toyboat's drummer in late 2012 after a bit of coercion from a certain redhead. She collaborates with Toyboat bandmates Jason Neerenberg and Daniel Gunderson to form the band Random Fractions (formerly known as Three-Fifths), who have been known to play with a variety of guest performers (thus the "random"). She has a few solo albums, an unofficial Three-Fifths album, and just recently released "Random Fractions" (self-titled) with her bandmates in August 2017.

Into the Sea

Copyright ©2016 by Cathy McManamon- All Rights Reserved

When I was small I used to dream
Of swimming deep within the sea
I had no fear and I could always breathe
Schools of fish were friends to me
Somehow through the intervening years
I got locked up on the land
Until you led me to her sacred shores
To remember once again

Come with me into the midnight sea
Let me wrap you into the deep
We will laugh, we will not fear the waves
As we ride eternity
Into the sea

The realm of dreams is her dominion
And madness lies not far within
I am touching possibility
And I am breathing with my skin
My silent fears fall like grains of sand
They disappear in the abyss
And I am freer than I've ever been
As I feel her foamy kiss

Come with me into the midnight sea
Let me wrap you into the deep
We will laugh, we will not fear the waves
As we ride eternity
Into the sea

I never dreamed you'd be like me
A child of the deep playing for keeps
Down on my knees at her majesty

Come with me into the midnight sea
Let me wrap you into the deep
We will laugh, we will not fear the waves
As we ride eternity
Come with me into the midnight sea
Let me wrap you into the deep
We will laugh, we will not fear the waves
As we ride eternity
Into the sea
