Speak to The Trees. They're Lonely

By Martin Ladekarl


I will promise you one thing

Chopped paint tastes better with pain

As does dry metal

Frankly better than that old saying:


Truth is madder than fiction

Trees still want to have best friends

Nothing bonds better

Than knowing this comes to an end


I will mistake you for you

That hair past my pay grade

That is to say you

Aren’t looking for that kinda fade


Truth is I will join the birds

Even if the wires are cut

And signals hang low

The birds will just sit on their butts


I will lay the body out

For all the birds to see

But birds don’t meddle

And they surely don’t speak to trees
