lyrics

the knees give out
and i give in
the eyes fill up
and i fill in

i'm not that strong
i'm not that far
we take our breaths
we take our fall

but with a hope like this
we are fearless
and with a love like this
i will not despair

and, i did not deserve this
but there is always more than meets the eye
and i will find my shelter
and i will find my joy and my desire
in the shade of the Most High

my knees on floors
my heaving heart
i am a seed
in damp and dark
with death in me
i come apart
to find new life
to find new eyes

and with a hope like this
we are fearless
and with a love like this
i will not despair
never has such a burden
been so light for the one who bore it

so i lay down my rights
to wisdom
so i might be more like
the wide eyes of a child

and i did not deserve this
but there is always more than meets the eye
and i will find my shelter
and i will find my joy and my desire
in the shade of the Most High

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
