The Tree lyrics

The Tree

HESIONE:
Poor little thing
pinched in
nowhere to go

HERMOCRATES:
Caricature of a tree

HESIONE:
Tied with a string
cinched in
bent like a bow

HERMOCRATES:
Not what a tree ought to be

HESIONE:
Shortened and shriveled and shrinking
what must the poor thing be thinking?

HERMOCRATES:
Trees cannot think

HESIONE:
Yes, But...

HERMOCRATES:
Still there's a link...

HESIONE:
Yes? What?

HERMOCRATES:
That's not to say...

HESIONE:
I Agree poor little thing stunted tied in a knot

HERMOCRATES:
Never knew what it could be

HESIONE:
Maybe it once wanted more than it got

HERMOCRATES:
Way of the world

HESIONE:
C'est la vie

HERMOCRATES:
Blind to its captive condition

HESIONE:
Cringing in silent submission

HERMOCRATES:
Trees cannot choose...

HESIONE:
Yes, but...

HERMOCRATES:
One might confuse...

HESIONE:
Yes, What?...

HERMOCRATES:
Way of the world

HESIONE:
I agree imagine, though if it were free to grow like any common tree

HERMOCRATES:
Above the house

HESIONE:
Above the hill

HERMOCRATES:
Express itself

HESIONE:
Exert it's will

HERMOCRATES:
A wild inpulsive flight!

HESIONE:
Perhapes one day it might...

HERMOCRATES:
Still, there are ties

HESIONE:
Clearly hard to ignore

HERMOCRATES:
Harder to break...

HESIONE:
So they say.
If one denies...

HERMOCRATES:
Closes...

HESIONE:
Opens the door
I would not stand in the way

HERMOCRATES:
You are still fairly attractive

HESIONE:
You are still youthful and active
what if you just...
Brother?

HERMOCRATES:
I think you must...
Sister

HESIONE:
Life is so short...

HERMOCRATES:
I agree
and ah what fruit the tree would bear

HESIONE:
A lusty fig

HERMOCRATES:
A rosey pear

HESIONE:
A bursting plum

HERMOCRATES:
A swollen peach

HESIONE:
Tumscent grapes...

HERMOCRATES:
Please, I beseech

HESIONE:
There are....
There are no words to say....

BOTH:
Perhapes, who knows,one day

HESIONE:
If i might say...

HERMOCRATES:
Please do

HESIONE:
If you insist...
I thought perhapes i'd misread

HERMOCRATES:
I meant to say...

HESIONE:
Please do

HERMOCRATES:
All that we've missed

HESIONE:
Life is so short!

HERMOCRATES:
So you said

HESIONE:
What if i suddenly told you...

HERMOCRATES:
There'd be no reason to hold you...

HESIONE:
So good to know

HERMOCRATES:
Truly

HESIONE:
One need not be

HERMOCRATES:
Ah yes, I see

BOTH:
Poor tree.
