    You're the reason
    Aliens would come down to earth
    Outer space must look small
    From inside your universe
    We paint time
    With the colors of our lives
    With what we do to survive
    If I were the branch
    Of an old oak tree
    I hope you'd be the one
    On the swing tied to me
    Your love is on a need to know basis
    And I need to know right now

    Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals - Below Sea Level (Hollywood Bowl 2022 Soundcheck)
    Wednesday, July 13, 2022 at 12:15pm PDT

    Countdown to the new album:
    Bloodline Maintenance
    July 22!

    Here's track one, "Below Sea Level" from a soundcheck at the Hollywood Bowl, celebrating its 100 year anniversary. Pre-order album/vinyl here.

    I fear that everything is happening in this world
    Some days it brings me to my knees
    You said I dropped in on the wrong planet
    As if it were up to me
    When I'm down in
    My heart pounding
    Below sea level
    We belong to us
    Glitter covers the dust
    My best efforts met with disdain
    Surrender by another name
    A deep breath
    Is all that's left
    Below sea level
    Read in the papers
    Watch on the news
    Planet's hanging on
    By the string of its shoes
    You sing high
    I'll sing low
    Down where daylight dare not go
    Below sea level
