“We’re a lot like trees” (I’m a sucker for good lyrics)

Discovered this song by Paper Lights.  In a world with a lot of junk lyrics this one grabbed my attention massively:

Noisetrade has a few more of their songs.

This one:

They explain the motivation for the song here http://paperlightsmusic.com/thinking-about-trees-again/

What do you think?

We’re a lot like trees

it’s been said of trees that they’re imperfect men
imprisoned by the roots between their sins
with branches that reach into the dirt like arms
to plant their thoughts like seeds
but it never seemed so to me

we’re all living in the same room
and the heavens are the roof
we’re all living in the shadow
of a canyon bigger than us

it’s been said that fire is just a greedy flame
with lights to distract from all it hopes to gain
all dressed up in colors to ignite it’s claim
and a heart that’s much like me
but I’ve never felt all that free

we’re all living in the same room
and the heavens are the roof
we’re all living in the shadow
of a canyon bigger than us
