lyrics

Take my blessing go
I know it’s more than just a little restlessness
With your brothers build new homes
And start another life out west

Take a wife and plant a tree
Work the land as family
Nurture all that you’ve planted
I’ll be looking down from the branches

And at summertime’s reunion
The priest will give communion
We’ll watch the people dancing
Our prayers won’t need any answering

Out a ways from the house
Is a rock – it’s covered in green moss – where the water flows
A guardian of this great land that all the old folks know
And that’s where we’ll go

Elizabeth, I promise
It’s make believe but honest
A tree don’t need a reason
And we need the rain this season

The cattle all are dying
Joseph is still trying
To force the clouds, he’s praying
And he won’t come down ‘till it’s raining

The ending I know
The land it is my own
I am the rock, I am the plane
I am the tree, I am the rain

about

2 a.m. Orchestra Auckland, New Zealand

"Dark harmonies and compelling melodies performed with equal parts sombre emotion and stark perfection." (NZ Musician Magazine)


"2 a.m. Orchestra has delivered an album that is worthy of superlatives. Impermanence deftly translates the chaos and elation of life, into uplifting and well-arranged rock songs - songs fused with eclecticism, vigour and exuberance."
(Get Frank)
