The Tree That Owns Itself

from A Knee In The Back by Möbius Strip

lyrics

My people are leaving
Replaced by these buildings

The Tree That Owns Itself
Ambassador to humankind
The Tree That Owns Itself

My kingdom, uprooted
Dust settles, I'm alone

Mother says man and tree are siblings
Begs man, "Don't forget the trees, son"
Years pass, and the world is concrete
Mother won't forget the treason

Survivor, enshrined

The Tree That Owns Itself
Belongs to no one else
Arboreal emancipation
Underwhelming reparations
