This is track #4 and the first single from our debut EP.


Years ago the trees would remember
All the leaves they lost in December
And the forest would echo with laughter
And then they would sprout up after

Suddenly the Spring was upon us
And a row of saplings would sprout up

Bark and branch
Tree and leaf
Cut them down
Cause me grief

Roots will grow
Towards the sun
Chop them down
Leave no one

Tangled arms
Reach below
In the dark
No one knows

Bark and branch
Come undone
Chop them down
Leave no one
