about

Ears to the Ground Family Harrisonburg, Virginia

Ears to the Ground Family is a minimal, totally acoustic group with guitar, hand percussion, and banjo. They have a serious focus on lyrical content and sometimes achieve a body-shivering vocal harmony. They make music of resistance to oppression and empire, of communities of hope, and of a faith that sustains us. Our tunes draw from R&B, spiritual, soul, folk/americana, chant, hip-hop, and jazz. ... more

Track Name: Almond Blossom
There's an almond blossoming in Jerusalem,
The buds on the fig tree becoming tender again,
And the mountains are clapping their hands,
And the mountains are clapping their hands,
Oh, and every tree, every last one,
is reaching up towards the heavens.

And yet Egyptian Chariots, we put our trust in them,
There are bombs dropping from planes unmanned,
And it burns like an arrow of fire,
Yes it burns like a branding iron,
but it only burns for the motherless child,
Oh and every family, every last one I saw standing there that day,
they were taking a picture in front of the covenant with death,
the covenant with hell.

Air and Space Museum, you must have lost your mind,
oh you prideful nation did you ever have a mind,
I believe that Jesus he will decide,
I proclaim that Jesus he will decide,
If it is that Rome is on I-95,
If it is that Rome is on I-95,
Oh, and every citizen with ears to hear the call,
'cause the smoke is rising up so tall,
has signed their names on a perishing line.

Why waste so much precious time,
float downstream in the living water,
be grafted to the vine.

The truth has already won the war.

There's an almond blossoming in Jerusalem,
the buds on a fig tree becoming tender again.
