lyrics

Chop down the trees
Chop down the trees in my forest of dreams

Bitter consequences from yesterday’s infractions
Seizing my treason, season by season, you’re still lacking meaningful reason
Thought I was your seed and expected some compassion
Drastically tragic, rabid savage, we’re just wild and fantastic

Anything you build, can fall down around you
Berate it, you hate it, I'm stripped of my dream
Anything you love has the power to kill you
Create it, I made it, I've been stripped of my dream

I felt them, sever me from beneath
Put their cold ax to me
And the chopped me, sever me from beneath
Down like a rotting tree
They traced my roots like the scales of a snake
I tried stand tall as I felt every limb break

Carving hate in the bark of your children
Seizing my treason, season by season, you’re still lacking meaningful reason
Tell them not to breathe in the air of thy villain
Drastically tragic, rabid savage, we’re just wild and fantastic

Anything you build, can fall down around you
Berate it, you hate it, I'm stripped of my dream
Anything you love has the power to kill you
Create it, I made it, I've been stripped of my dream

I felt them, sever me from beneath
Put their cold ax to me
And the chopped me, sever me from beneath
Down like a rotting tree
They traced my roots like the scales of a snake
I tried to stand tall as I felt every limb break

I was what I once was
I am what I am
And every fallen forest has a story of denial
And this very piece of paper, experienced a time of exile
