"She Awakes" is a love letter to Mother Earth as she transitions from winter to spring, and a reflection on how we change with the seasons as well - leaving behind the old the make room for the new.

This is the first single from The Honey Badgers' upcoming album, "The Earth Turns and So Do We".


Verse 1
I was sleeping deep
Still to the depths of my bones
Lost in my sepia dreams
My cave of comfort heavy as a stone

I was called awake
By the whisper of snow through the trees
Icicles hitting the window
Like a champagne toast on New Year’s Eve

She awakes
Stretches her arms to the sky
Roots through the earth (reaching down deep)
And her breath is cold and misty as she says
“Death makes room for life”

Verse 2
We have been waiting
In the womb tightly wound
Quietly anticipating
The movement from silence to sound

Do you hear her beckon?
She says “It’s time to transform”
The buds on the trees have burst forth
The earth turns and so do we


I have spent this whole season in the arms of the mother
Death to rebirth
Sorting my ribbons and my morals, my antiques and my failings
Eyes on the planets and hands in the dirt

And I feel her awake
She stretches her arms to the sky
Her roots through the earth (reaching down deep)
And her breath is warm as sunshine as she says
“Death makes room for life”
