The Hidden Pine-tree Over The Sea
I found the Pine-tree over the sea.
It was hidden where it’s hard to see.
It started raining so I lay under the tree.
Nobody knew where I fell asleep.
The shadow of the Pine-tree could hide me
From suicidal rays of a scorching sun
That never get enough and always feed their own greed.
They always remind me of what I’ve become.
Lying and resting right under the twigs
I was wasting my time straight into nowhere.
The leaves were falling down on my lids
When I felt that spiritless wind was blowing.
I told myself: “I will leave it tomorrow.”
The place under the tree was warm and fine.
Meanwhile the Pine-tree was expanding and growing.
I couldn’t stop looking. I was so petrified.

The hidden Pine-tree over the sea,
Nobody knows where you supposed to be,
Nobody thinks how it’s hard to feel for you.
Nobody feels but I do.

Seconds were passing. Minutes were going.
Hours and days were disappearing.
I was just staying there and enjoying
That weird atmosphere the Pine-tree was keeping.
Nothing was better. My eyes were blurred
By the creepy ridiculous color of green.
The thought appeared that I had buried
Everything that I had believed in.
I wanted to jump up and start to flee,
Just run away so far from here
Away from twigs. Away from green.
Away from the Pine-tree over the sea.
But as I tried to slip away
I felt the roots around my body and
They smothered me and suffocated
My wretched efforts. It was my end.

The hidden Pine-tree over the sea,
Nobody knows where you supposed to be,
Nobody thinks how it’s hard to feel for you.
Nobody feels but I do.

The question is: what’s point of chorus?
I’m pretty sure that now it’s clear.
After I died the name that I use is
The Hidden Pine-tree Over The Sea.
