Hundreds of Years

from the album Strangers From the Universe

lyrics written by Mark Davies

Leaves flutter, blink at the sky
The pictures in your mind speed by
Branches sway, nod to the air
Your frenzy takes you nowhere

Standing silent they talk to each other
Swaying softly the sing with each other

Roots anchor, sit with the earth
You scramble to prove your worth
Trunks tower, simply to stand
You flap your arms and wring your hands

Talking silent they stand with each other
Singing softly they sway with each other

Trees may stand hundreds of years
You honk your horn and grind your gears
