lyrics

Forests lie before me
Shells on the ground
I walk singing gaily
Feet in the sand

Bright green trees surround me
Spindly and thin
Branches waving slowly
Though there's no wind

Why does this wood seem so strange to me?
Why does this wood seem so strange to me?

Wild birds flee before me
Silver and green
Feathers flashing brightly
No wings to be seen

Flowers open for me
Their petals sting
Small beasts sink in deeply
Waving their fins

Why does this wood seem so sad to me?
Why does this wood seem so sad to me?

Creatures thunder by me
Eyes black and round
Disappear so swiftly
No hooves on the ground

Blue air moves above me
Heavy with brine
Clouds expanding darkly
Deep red as wine

Why does this wood seem so grim to me?
Why does this wood seem so grim to me?

Chambers soon welcome me
Covered in mire
Tattered flags drift lightly
On wooden spires

People dance before me
Floating in space
Dark eyes staring deeply
Smiles fixed on their face

Why does this wood seem so cold to me?
Why does this wood seem so cold to me?

Dancers come towards me
Death in their grin
White hands grip mine tightly
Draw me in their ring

Down here I'll always be
'Way from your land
I'll dance singing gaily
Making no sound
