lyrics

You keep waking me up
but I need my family to keep me from sleeping
while I wait with you while I pray in the garden

Please, fox-eyed songbird, come drink and dance with me
to keep my heart beating
while we wait for our greens to take root in the garden

As we lie down with the fruit from the tree
and the sound of our blood thickening
while our hearts race; and here we are, tempt in the garden

You knelt down and the blood from your brow
dripped between the leaves and nourished the soil
and ran to our feet as we fell asleep in the garden

I've got to wake and work the ground
and callous my hands alongside yours
cause what the hell's a lover
who wasn't' a brother first?

I've got to wake and work the ground
and callous my hands alongside yours
cause what the hell's a lover
who wasn't' a brother first?

about

The Breaking Yard Portland, Oregon

The Breaking Yard is a force like water, calmly lapping against the shore until a wind or any other disturbance whips up a fury of white tipped crescendos terrifying the fragile reality of their audience. No malice is in their sound but a more treacherous trait, a pure honest love for humanity.
