Walking Trees

lyrics

WHEN YOU HAVE PURCHASED SALVE ENOUGH
TO COAT YOUR EYELIDS HEAVILY
THROUGH TEARS YOU’LL SEE THE WALKING TREES
WHICH ONCE TO YOU WERE STILL AND COLD

REMEMBER AS THE WATER FLOWS
LIKE VEINS OF SAP UPON YOUR SKIN
THAT THOSE WITHOUT MUST LOOK WITHIN
TO WHERE THE SALVE IS BOUGHT AND SOLD

SEE THEM WAITING AT THE WATER
WITH THEIR LEAVES THAT NEVER WITHER
HIDDEN ROOTS BENEATH THE RIVER
INTERTWINING VEINS OF GOLD

WHEN YOU’VE BEEN CLOTHED IN WHITE ATTIRE
AND ON THE LAND HAVE SET YOUR FEET
AND THERE AT HAND HAVE FRUIT TO EAT
FROM OFF THE BRANCHES OF THE TREES

REMEMBER THAT WITHIN YOUR GRASP
ARE MANY SEEDS, IF PLANTED RIGHT
WILL BRING FORTH SPOTLESS DEEDS OF LIGHT
CONSIDER THAT THIS FOOD IS FREE

SEE THEM WAITING AT THE WATER
WITH THEIR LEAVES THAT NEVER WITHER
HIDDEN ROOTS BENEATH THE RIVER
INTERTWINING VEINS OF GOLD

WATCH THEM BENDING LOW AND KNEELING
TOUCH THEIR LEAVES WHICH ARE FOR HEALING
MANIFESTED ROOTS REVEALING
UNIVERSAL REMEDIES

DRINK THE CRYSTAL WATER DOWN
AND LISTEN TO THE WHISPERING BREEZE
