about

"Into the Trees" originated as a long poem about belonging to the trees and coming to my final resting place beneath them. The song brought the overall positive message to the forefront, praising the virtues of the forest as a place of balance. The verses and pre-chorus describe a struggle between two virtual worlds, that of nature and that of man: "one foot in nature, one foot on the street." While the first verse claims I'm "nature's orphan in human hands," the second explains that it's "both I need." There is a dichotomy here that remains unresolved.

Into the Trees (lyrics)

I have a hundred songs I'll never write
A thousand notes I’ll never play
I have a light that burns unseen
As I walk alone into the trees

I've always lived my life on the periphery
In a world that makes no sense
Lost among the chaos
Nature's orphan in human hands

Struggle to carve out a place
Bending until I break

What's real and true is the earth and the leaves
They never lie, they never deceive
There's a reason for each and every thing
And the animals, they run free
Into the trees
Into the trees
Into the trees

One foot in nature, one foot on the street
The pull of the wild, the push to agree
Not one or the other, but both I need
And one is disappearing right in front of me

Struggle to carve out a place
Bending until I break

What's real and true is the earth and the leaves
They never lie, they never deceive
There's a reason for each and every thing
And the animals, they run free
Into the trees
Into the trees
Into the trees

I have a light that burns unseen
As I walk alone into the trees
There my soul will gently sleep
There my soul will gently sleep
