lyrics

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

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.
