lyrics

I’m a sapling tree
With very few leaves,
But my roots are deep in ground,
So please;
Share with me
How your limbs reign free
And what this life is all about.

You’re a fucking hate-filled, unskilled narcissist.
A lover in disguise
Cannot fool my bloodshot eyes -
A logger in disguise.
You’re a fucking hate-filled, unskilled narcissist.
A lover in disguise
Cannot fool my bloodshot eyes -
A logger in the clothes of an arborist.

But why would you hurt
The one thing that provides
And gives you all that they own?
Some thrive on poison -
Like parasites on spiders
And call your discomfort their home.

‘Coz I’m in need of light,
Not of your hate and spite -
To my growth; you’d surely stunt.
As I fall to the ground,
Without sight or sound,
You killer of life you FUCKING CUNT.

I’m not saying that I will put up for long,
It just took me some time to adapt,
For I’m a young sapling,
You are grown and unwilling -
I’m not the one who is trapped.
