"The Garden (Part 3)" as written by and Rollo Armstrong Bentovim Ayalah Deborah Bentovim Ayalah Deborah....
Beg you listen me, don't be kissing me 'til I'm done
Unsung champion, 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 think this song is about reflecting on life and how good it was to you. He's got his girl and they were free spirits back in the day, and now they are growing older and maturing. It sounds like he doesn't have the girl anymore with the line "And you left me here, letting freedom tear us apart." The chorus just like me, just like we are supposed to be, is saying that she was supposed to stay still be with him, living their lives together like they planned originally. This song is awesome, I love this band. Rock and Roll Band has an awesome live version. My buddy actually met these guys at a show at the Canopy Club and chiefed sum herb and drank sum beers, these guys are a really talented underground band.

    General CommentI see where you are coming from with the whole reflection of his life. You can see that with the second set of lyrics he is talking about the hound dogs bones, and then he says, "It reminds me of the time I told you long ago:" and then goes into what he supposedly told her long ago, where the hound dog is alive and likes to run so it is an obvious reflection on his life. I think the line: just like me, just like we are supposed to be is referring to how the hound dog doesn't like to be chained up and run free- and he is saying that is how humans should live their lives, unchained, and then the second to last line he says, "before I was chained to this country by way" saying that looking back on his life he wishes that he did all those things that he talked about to the girl and now that he is dying is realizing that he spent his whole life chained up. The last line is just him saying that he wishes that the girl would have helped him lead a more free spirited life like he had talked about.
