sorrow is not for you
the forest will see you through
and if there's no forest
just plant the seeds
and soon you'll have your peace
amongst the trees

tomorrow is just a thief
today may never leave
and if there's no tomorrow
don't water the ground
and the trees will never be found
but bound to the ground

mother, father, brother, lover sweet
i may be drowning but maybe that's what i need
the water is rising high above my head
people don't grow for long until they're dead
and fed to the flowerbed

no, my friend, it's not just in your head
the sun and the moon are friends that never met

sorrow is not for you
change will see you through
and if there's no change, just wait it out
and that will change you
without a doubt
