about

sometimes you have to face your problems, climb back down.

lyrics

you're climbing to the top of that tree for
a better view of a town that
just can't stand you, but what else can you do?

oh, so you've got a tree?
well, it's got a mouth.
you keep all your secrets locked in a house
up in the braches, above the ground.
they're all spilling out, now.
they're all spilling out!

leaves that covered your face are falling down to the spaces
in between the filters and the seems, the poisons in your dreams.

you're climbing to the top of that tree for
a better view of a town that
just can't stand you, but what else can you do?

cuz i give it my all, but still every fall
the animals go away.
i grew strong and stood tall,
but fell to a chainsaw.
your life was paved in my place.

now you're trapped up there,
ego's stuck in one of those branches.
i'm throwing rocks up there,
aiming for a beehive, hoping they sting you.
whatever goes up has to come down...
whoever thought you'd never miss the ground?

you're climbing to the top of that tree for
a better view of a town that
just can't stand you... what else can you do?
what else can you do?

your hands are always too cold for my cheekbones,
turning hot coals into balls of snow.
