I see myself in front of me
burning with the trees
something wet won't let me die
I'm not strong enough to leave it all behind
please leave me to play
I see you in the trees
your skin is growing branches
we all know you can't communicate
the wire around your lips has rusted
you just ponder questions
words are tied up in your tongue
if the ground could carry us further
could you stay on and take root
could you manage the task
or would the supports collapse?
The supports would collapse.
Is it the price we pay for freedom
or the desire to have you own limbs
they're easily taken away
I've seen it, I'm the trees
I've seen it, and myself burn
it and myself burn, burn myself and I
