lyrics

Amongst a riot of thorns and weeds
A solitary tree
Rises stubbornly from the soil
Tall and imperfect

Reaching for the sky
With its twisted limbs
And choking vines
An abstract beauty

But when the clouds collect
When it’s dark
And the rain falls
You’d swear the tree
Was weeping
Its tears disappearing
In the ground

“Giving Tree”
That’s not me
Fruit to feed
Sweet but poison

I am doomed to attract
Let them down, let them go
I would warn them
But who would I be,
who would I be with?

Roots grow
From graves
Bringing death to life
Tombs on toxic flowers
Shaded with poison
Poisonous leaves
Vines like serpents
Like a noose.
Birds
land
die

Waiting for winter and cold, cold nights
When the trunk is bare
Nothing to see
Nothing to deceive
Just time to myself
To look around, to sleep
Awaking to see
The saplings sprout around me
Nothing changes
The cycle starts anew

“Giving Tree”
That’s not me
Fruit to feed
Sweet but poison
