Lyrics

OVERSTORY
Water’s cold

Planets sold
Underneath

A jagged canopied sky
Is all she ever needed

Terra firma fortified

Tumbling over Arbutus sea cliffs
Salmon streams cascading by
Falls glacial icy cold

Until there’s no pain left to hold

Conifer giants high looking down
Swaying over the berries turned brown
Life feeds on life

Death directed paths rife

Reborn conviction

Shaped by time weathered stone
We are all one

In the forest called home
We must save to save
Or forever be enslaved

Be like thin willow and bend with the wind
Knowing these trees and our being is twinned
Take heed or nature will have her revenge
Overstory emerges over again
Overstory unfolding again
