Lyrics:

Breakers hit heavy on the sands of the strand
Humans land hard on the border
Bank comes down heavy when the mortgage ainít paid
Cops come down hard on disorder

The moon weighs one hundredth of our island earth
Baby weighs a ton on the eve of its birth
Light as the feet of birds hunting on sod
Love trickles down like honey from God

Honey from God, honey from God
Love trickles down like honey from God

Trade winds come sweeping in off of the sea
Setting the bamboo to clatter and bow
Infinite blue invitation to me
Out of the armor and into the now

Into the now, into the now
Out of the armor and into the now

To all the places where Iíve never been
Some in the distance and some in my skin
I raise a glass like a bright crystal ball
See if I get there at the end of it all

End of it all, end of it all
See if I get there at the end of it all

End of it all, end of it all
See if I get there at the end of it all
Honey from God, honey from God
Love trickles down like honey from God
Into the now, into the now
Out of the armor and into the now.
