lyrics

“The moon and the trees”

Here, I'll tell you the tale
About a man one night he throw himself over the rail
While out at sea,
And then he dreamed...
That he was free,
Just like you or me, just like you... or me.

Here, I'll tell you a story
About a man with an axe and some moral authority over me,
Is that the way...
It's gonna be?
Just like you or me,
Just like you or me, or me?

If you go far enough down that road,
The darkness'll come and it will never go away.

Here, I'll tell you a scary one:
No woman with a gun nor more anger to bury than Annie Lee.
And then she dreamed...
That she was free,
Just like you or me, you or me.

If you go far enough down that road,
The darkness'll come and it will never go away.

She kills her man and her sons and some woman who flees,
Now she's running for the one she thinks she really needs.
Annie? Annie, please!
Annie? Annie?
