The Tree That Owns Itself

from Demo by Möbius Strip



My people are leaving
Survivor, enshrined

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

My people are gone
Replaced by these buildings

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


from Demo, released March 26, 2009
