A house made of wood
that once understood ,
said to the world there ,
Hey it's so unfair .

Don't knock on my door ,
don't walk on my floor .
Can't anyone see ,
I once was a tree .

You've taken too much ,
enough is enough .
The forest was mine it's really a crime .

You've cut us all down
to build up a town .
Hey don't sit on me ,
once I was a tree ,

Now I'm just a chair .
How dare you sit there .
Hey don't lie on me ,
once I was a tree.

Now I'm just a bed .
So don't rest your head ,
Have you said your prayers ?
Don't walk up the stairs .

Don't walk over me
I once was a tree .
I reached to the sky ,
Tall and green was I .

Now look there at me ,
you have killed a tree .
Can't you see your sins ?
You cut off my limbs ,

You've stolen my fruits ,
You've dug up my roots ,
the life I once knew ,
has gone thanks to you .

Aaaww...This is sad. I've always thought trees had souls, a bit romantic of me, and probably not so, but...what if? Thank you, Paul, for voicing my thoughts! :)
