Find me a tree

Empty like a little girl without her mother's breasts
Empty like a little boy without a place to rest
Running from bombs and guns
Holding on to your brother's arms
Swollen like your uncle's lungs
(Whose heart dried up as his liver drowned)
Bleeding like a beaten dog
Screaming like you're being focked
And lost, as usual.


The scabs tear away with the power of the wind
The scabs tear away and your wounds are opened
Now your flesh can be eaten by the air
Just like your heart was eaten, by her.
Your eyes turn red,
you want her dead
But its you that's dying
Filthy and wet
And lost, as usual.


Find me a home
Find me a home
Find me a peaceful place to call my own
Find me a tree
Find me a tree
Find me a happy peaceful tree where I can be
Away from everybody else.

I like the style of it, but I'm honestly not sure what it's about. huh.gif

This reminds me of a Pollack painting. Lots of stuff thrown at the canvas but I can't for the life of me see the point of it all. First I thought it was about war, then about death, then about a break-up, then about a tree-hugging.

Hey krix,

I like it man, but like the others I see it as confusing. Great analogy there Hemp regarding the painting. It immediately brought to mind a Spanish artist, Joan Miro. Decorative as expressive, surreal. Personal, untutored.

Deep man, so deep.

It seems more of a poem than a song, mainly because of it's lack of a common point. It seems to jump all over and I feel that is more acceptable in a poem than a song.

I rather like the abstractness of it all. I think it works.

Sorry to give you an adverse opinion, though... smile.gif

Eeeeeeh, not sure about this one. I mean, yeah, it really is about a s*** ton of different things, so it really leaves you guessing. But I suppose Will has a point about abstractness working, also, so... not exactly sure what to make of this one.

Well basically the main theme is a relationship theme. Its kind of describing the empty, lost, betrayed, beaten and bitter feelings after a break up. Its confusing and abstract because that's how you feel after such a break up. And then the chorus creates a contrast because it is repetitive, simple and slow, expressing peacefulness in loneliness.

I have to say i thought i understood it through the whole set of lyrics, so i was confused when everyone else started talking about they didn't understand. And as for relating to the reader/listener you have no idea how many times i've wished to just get away to a secluded spot and trees are usually around since i am a little bit of a nature boy. So personally this one I really like
Other than music there's only one thing that occupies my time...

this magnificent piece of writing is clearly a retrospective look at the fabulous post world war II gay sadomasochist movement in northern france. splendid splendid.

im kinda thinkin this would be a good poem but i feel that due to its vast abstractness that it would be too confusing as a song and it would only really appear to a certain audience even wit ha slammin' tune

I just interpreted this piece as being about fear and confusion. Like The Scream in literary form. Nice, but scary.

I really like this. I like how it starts out sweet and subdued, comparing yourself to empty children, and then just intensifies from there. Very cool transitions. I too got images of abstract art by Pollock in my head as I read this. I really, really like this. Hope you record it soon. smile.gif

"Whose heart dried up as his liver drowned"

I like that line...


overall i think it's pretty good, but i had to really concentrate to make sure I was following it correctly. nice piece of work.

"Empty like a little girl without her mother's breasts
Empty like a little boy without a place to rest"

doesn't make much sense to me, if only because... it doesn't make sense. the rest of it is great though, really enjoyed it.

well im not really a lyrics person, put up a track and i'll tell you, judging on lyrics alone is like judging art on the artsit before you have seen it. you dont get the full thing.

i mean chilli peppers "cant stop" is a load of gibberish, but a good song
