The Giving Tree Band - Unified Folk Theory

Featured on:

All I have is vague and fleeting

What we lose is real as the night

How are you of such convictions

Are you not just as confused as I


Let me delight amidst the shadows

I can’t live in your republic, see

Paint those roses on my windows tonight

The morning brings us all the truth I need


Cast your fears aside

Leave your doubt behind

When you’re lonely

When you’re sad


I know you’ve it all before

It’s easy to ignore

When you’re lonely

When you’re sad


Remember, it ain’t that bad


My assays at escaping suffering

Have only brought me that much closer to the pain

For you can only fill your cup until it spills

Or sharpen your knife until it’s dull again
