The Wishing Tree

Take me to the wishing tree
Where I shall make a wish or three
For I am weary of this world

I offer up this gift to you
A token of my gratitude
If only you could make dreams true

Do not cut me down
Do not cut me down
Do not cut me down
Do not cut me down
Filled with hunger
Filled with thirst
I watch you light and burn the earth
Do not cut me down
Do not cut me down

Take me to the wishing tree
My mind is filled with hate and greed
You won’t give me what I want

Could you ever be forgiven
Can I ever be forgiven
Could you ever be forgiven
Can I ever be…

Filled with hunger
Filled with thirst
I watch you light and burn the earth
Do not cut me down
Do not cut me down

I give you shelter
I give you air
But you do not even seem to care
Go on take what you want from me
Go on take what you want from me
Do not cut me down
Do not cut me down
Do not cut me down

Do not cut me down
Do not cut me down
Do not cut me down
Filled with hunger
Filled with thirst
I watch you light and burn the earth
Around me
