Surf's Up

“Alberi come me non hanno la possibilità di sopravvivere se tutto ciò che questa vostra civiltà ‎sa dare è inquinamento e morte lenta… I mie rami ora soffrono e le mie foglie non ispirano più ‎poesia agli uomini per le loro canzoni…”
Feel the wind burn through my skin
The pain, the air is killing me
For years my limbs stretched to the sky
A nest for birds to sit and sing

But now my branches suffer
And my leaves don't bear the glow
They did so long ago

One day I was full of life
My sap was rich and I was strong
From seed to tree I grew so tall
Through wind and rain I could not fall

But now my branches suffer
And my leaves don't offer
Poetry to men of song

Trees like me weren't meant to live
If all this world can give
Pollution and slow death

Oh Lord I lay me down
No life's left to be found
There's nothing left for me

Trees like me weren't meant to live
If all this earth can give
Is pollution

Trees like me weren't meant to live
‎(Oh Lord I lay me down)
If all this earth can give
‎(My branches to the ground)
Is pollution and slow death
‎(There's nothing left for me)

Oh Lord I lay me down
My branches to the ground
There's nothing left for me
