"The Garden" as written by Rollo Armstrong and Ayalah Deborah Bentovim....
Beg you listen me, don't be kissing me 'til I'm done.
Unsung champion, I reason, like seasoning.
Pepper your thoughts with spice, and entice you to a space

Where I dwell with bass players and layers and loops,
Think what I think with my prayers. It's nice.
My world is everything I've become,

Contained in the hum between voice and drum.
I'm coming from the same place I'm still running from,
But even sitting in the garden one can still get stung

    General CommentI might be wrong though. My version of the garden finishes before these lyrics kick in

    General CommentThis is the first song on the album; it's an intro, an invitation to listen carefully listen to the rest of the album ("Beg you listen me, don't be kissing me 'til I'm done."). He's asking the listener to keep an open mind and "digest" the ideas expressed ("Pepper your thoughts with spice, and entice you to a space
    Where I dwell with bass players and layers and loops,").

    General Comment"But even sitting in the garden one can still get stung"
    I think the garden is an allusion to a safe place; even when you're comfortable and think that nothing can hurt you, you may very well be wrong. Cosidering that this album has an introverted perspective, it probably means that certain situations can come and haunt you from the past, for example, basically foreshadowing the next song. In "Bring My Family Back" there is a part when a guy (the father) is married, has kids and works hard, yet the sex is unsatisfying, the job is tiring... and basically his intrinsic emptyness destroys who he is and his relationship with his family.
