"Sycamore Leaves" as written by and Pal Waaktaar....
Can't stop thinking 'bout it
It fills me with unease
Out there by the roadside something's buried
Under sycamore leaves
Wet grounds, late September
The foliage of the trees
I came upon this feeling that someone's lying
Covered by sycamore leaves
And I could never face it
And take a look and see
And I could never break out
And shake it's grip on me

    General CommentThe lyric is something like Poe's TELL TALE HEART where the narrator murders and buries someone but thinks he hears the dead person's heart beating. Here too seems to be the case: a murderer's conscience torturing him ?

    Thinking this lyrics through, quite amazing how dark this and several of the songs on the East of the Sun album are.
