Two Silver Trees

Album: Carried to Dust (2008)
  • There are code breakers with lines well tapped
    Traces sweeping out across the static night
    You are draped in white like the blossoms of the tree
    Looking down a glass elevator
    At your father signing the papers for
    Two silver trees, two silver trees
    Two worlds in need, two silver trees

    Branches falling down
    From sources underground
    False identities
    Stranded in each single seed

    False sense of warning no poisoned cup
    Just deception crawling up like a snake
    Decay of the blossoms and roots well hacked
    Spoil the hidden waters dying at the base of
    Two silver trees, two silver trees
    Two worlds in need, two silver trees

    [Chorus] Writer/s: JOEY BURNS, JOHN BURNS
