about

Old Trees

Old Trees is a DIY folk punk band rooted in eco anarchist, vegan and queer feminist beliefs. They started in late 2011 in Portugal, and eventually became a nomadic collective of musicians and activists from several parts of Europe.
Old Trees is for lovers, for warriors, it's a scream of rage against the capitalist patriarchal machine.

Track Name: Woodland
Nature surrounds me in all it’s majesty
And I’m overwhelmed by the simplicity
It’s blood follows down into Warriors peek
The buildings burn and I cannot speak
Ooh the ghosts around me…
Ooh they’re buried deep…
Ooh they’re all around me…
Ooh Into the bleak
I walk through the woods, the trees are like fire
And I walk, I walk and I walk
The willows whisper long wanted desires
And I talk to them, I talk
The rage for all the lost, comes to me in my tears
The forest demands vengeance for all these years
Their screams were forgotten, but now they shall remember
The peace of the forest in this last cold December
Ooh the ghosts around me…
Ooh they’re buried deep…
Ooh they’re all around me…
Ooh Into the bleak
I walk through the woods, the trees are like fire
And I walk, I walk and I walk
The willows whisper long wanted desires
And I talk to them, I talk
Track Name: Instintx
Quando olho para trás e vejo os meus defeitos
Não quero mais definições nem mais conceitos
Porque eu não sou só um/uma guerreirx,
Eu sou um ser humano!
Tenho medos e problemas emocionais,
Por deste sistema insano
Mas os anos passam e ainda estou aqui
Sem rumo, selvagem, e ainda sou assim.
Vamos todxs voltar à infância
Para vivermos de outro modo
Vamos todxs partir a rotina
E começar esta merda de novo
A vida foi feita para termos problemas?
Ou morrer a lutar contra os seus esquemas
As cidades são demasiado grandes
Ou eu sou demasiadx pequenx
Se nas veias delxs só corre dinheiro
Nas minhas só corre veneno (x2)
Vamos todos voltar à infância
Para vivermos de outro modo
Vamos todos partir a rotina
E começar esta merda de novo
Track Name: Edificis En Flames
Tot el que deies, que no es podria fer en aquesta ciutat,
Tot el que creies, ho estem fent en centres socials.
I si arriaba la carta amb grups d'afinitat s'ideara com resistir,
quan els hagin fet fora, entraran a l'edifici del davant.
I si venen amb màquines, amb intenció d'enderrocar,
on no hi hagi edifici, i faran un hort urbà.
Tot el que deies, que no es podria fer en aquesta ciutat.
Tot el que creies ho estem fent en centres socials
Track Name: Wild Hearts and Feral Minds
We are all witches, awaiting our execution
They tried to take over our bodies and situation
But they can’t silence this scream
Let’s smash the patriarchy!
Stripped down of all privileges
When we roam towards anarchy
And all of my life, I’ve been suffocating on tear gas
And all my friends, they’re all wearing black masks
But none of that matters if we don’t respect each other
If we’re going to build a new world, we need to do it together
Apathy is death, apathy is their tool
Not caring about others isn’t fucking cool
It isn’t my revolution if I can’t have my identity
It isn’t my revolution if it’s not through solidarity
Between projects, between homes
Between people singing songs
And all of my life, I’ve been suffocating on tear gas
And all my friends, they’re all wearing black masks
But none of that matters if we don’t respect each other
If we’re going to build a new world, we need to do it together
Track Name: The Downfall
I will stay with you until the end Will die with a sword in my hand
Oh my love, the end
It follows me to sleep A call to the mountains deep
Lost in legends In the concrete
A cabin lost, to never be found A secret outside of their towns
They won't find us here, no they won’t find us here
And when I die Lay my body in the river In a pire of fire, like my ancestors did
A sweet story I will tell you When my eyes close into rest
We will meet in that utopia All our lives are such a mess
The sound of sirens fills the air Swallow the ground in such despair
Their machines will kill us all But not before their downfall
And please think about me In that train that you will take A
ll the stones that we threw In that bridge across this lake
You asked me as I remember Will you break the law with me?
And quite nicely, did I awser Let's go burn their factories
A sweet story I will tell you When my eyes close into rest
We will meet in that utopia All our lives are such a mess
The sound of sirens fills the air Swallow the ground in such despair
Their machines will kill us all But not before their downfall
Track Name: Alça a Bandeira
Original lyrics in portuguese:

Alça a bandeira verde e negra,
Que é a bandeira da nossa revolução.
Oiçam os gritos, os gritos que ecoam,
Tempestades que chegam, chamas que voam.
Aí vêm os selvagens, comendo a escuridão,
No horizonte uma miragem da nossa revolução.
Alça a bandeira verde e negra,
Que é a bandeira da nossa revolução.

Translated lyrics in english:

Rise up the black and green flag
Which is the flag of our revolution!
Listen to the screams, the screams that echo
Arriving storms, flames that fly
Listen to the screams, the screams that echo
Here come the savages, eating the darkness
In the horizon, a glimpse of our revolution
Rise up the black and green flag
Which is the flag of our revolution!
