the trees are loud today

darling I'm jumping off this ship
please do not watch me slip
I belong in the sea with my sorrows
(smile for me)

darling I'm tossing over this boat
cling on to the oars
and your head shall afloat to land
I am nesting to the seafloor ~farewell

darling I'm going under the lava
and will freeze as molten magma ~
make your way to the canyons we climbed before
and maneuver yourself softly

darling I'm leaving this tree branch and
diving into the forest fire ~
take your angel wings and follow the path
of the black crows ~Au revoir

the trees are screaming today
