Break Dawn Light (Word Association Challenge)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Breaking had so many meanings and variations, I just tried to settle on the theme of separation, of time, of people, of new start and old realities. Hope you enjoy it. Headphones recommended.

Lyrics
Break dawn light
Take your nets and go down to the river
And baptize your ankles there
For whatever good it may do you
to whatever god may hear

Break dawn light
Weary hands take up your hammer
For by the strength of your back
your children won't sleep hungry

And in this light there is a promise
made to each and every soul
the long, cold night lays broken
gasping and withering away
And while she will recover
For now the world is yours

Break dawn light
loving hands pick up your daughter
And see such promise there
If only you will let her

Break dawn light
Shaking hands lay on the coffin
For he had but one life to give
and we all know that it's wasted

And in this light there is a promise
made to each and every soul
the long, cold night lays broken
gasping and withering away
And while she will recover
For now the world is yours

Break Dawn light
A flag is such cold comfort

So tell my son and daughter
This man was just a man
and unlike Gods and heroes
I did not die with gun in hand
but that there is no shame
in forgiveness instead of blame

so remember me at break Dawn light

Great
sort of folky tribal feel here.... love the raw guitar sound and your strong vocal.... really like the way you did this.... powerful in it's simplicity except for the lyrics which are wonderful.... it has the sound of a 'traditional' song.... love it, regards M

Sneaks up on you...
Hi Adam. Like this one. It sneaks up on you as you listen and insinuates itself in your consciousness. Great sense of space. Really like the lyrics as well. Regards, Peter.

Sneaky?
Sure why not, If it lasts it lasts, not everything should bean you over the head. I need to remember that.

Adam-esque
Great vocals power this spare, windblown, raw tune.

Always feel like I'm listening to something fundamental with your songs.

Always worth listening to.

Up there, friend.

did you tune down to get the effect? Excellent vocals and a subtle yet complex arrangement that moves this tune around. Really well done.
