This I Know

This is the song of a centuries-old redwood tree, who sees past, present and future with great clarity. 

lyrics

conflict rages

a story for the ages

hearts in cages

silenced sages 

this tale is far too old 

my home bought and sold 

measured out in stolen gold

I'm tired, truth be told

but the thing about being ancient

is you learn to be patient

to wait and see

what will be 

and this is the time

to end the crime

to let us grow

this I know (x2)

This I know.
