Soldier and the Tree

They mound like a grave on today's front page

covering the news that a soldier was hanged          

After being tortured and kept in a cage

Always being kicked and his head being banged        

Leaving behind a woman who cared

And loved him will now be a widow of murder                

His last thoughts were of the time they shared

And how his death is going to hurt her

She couldn't take all of this pain

As he's put in the ground with angel singers

She couldn't take it, she is going insane

She is a prisoner of the tree and it's green fingers

And so she comes to dream herself the tree                

The same one that choked him blue

Now dreams of a rope setting her free

That devilish tree had taken her too
