"In the Wilderness" as written by Mario Duplantier, Joseph Duplantier, Jean Michel Labadie and Christian Andreu....
On my way
To the vision-come-true
I enter a galaxy rising
And I land on this
Brown and green old place
Whose wild is giant trees

Trees so strong
That they never can fall
Four suns alight
In silver grey sky
Wild river flows
With rage alive
Lions of fire approach me

Carved by the wind
And the fall of water
From the treetops
I can see the end of a time

Living respectful
Low your axe
And learn from the trees

Second dawn
Meet the sylvanlings
Passageways into the deep
Invitations to explore the forest
Lions gales and chambers

A tree trunk
Larger than a mountain
Stands on the top
Of this hill
Made of rock and mist

Living respectful
Low you axe
And learn from the trees

Henceforth
I will be always there
Planet earth will overcome
Men destroyed
Scorned and killed their lives
But the world is on her way

    My InterpretationIn this song our storyteller lands on a new a new planet (world). Here he sees the full potential of what nature has done without us and how we have repressed it. He makes a commitment that he will change his ways and learn to respect nature.

    --------------

    "On my way
    To the vision-come-true
    I enter a galaxy rising
    And I land on this
    Brown and green old place
    Whose wild is giant trees"

    This is the place the higher powers spoke of in the other songs (if I remember the concept correctly) 'galaxy rising' I'd say means this is a new beginning. The planet is described as covered in vegetation and foliage and has an ancient nature.

    "Trees so strong
    That they never can fall
    Four suns alight
    In silver grey sky
    Wild river flows
    With rage alive
    Lions of fire approach me"

    Descriptions like this give me shivers,, the traveler who is very powerful and his technology/culture and ideas very advanced. He's overwhelmed by the might of his surroundings. Mountainous trees and intimidating rivers define the landscape. 'Lions of fire approach me' I'd guess he's describing the wild animals there. Saying they look intimidating/powerful.

    "Carved by the wind
    And the fall of water
    From the treetops
    I can see the end of a time"

    The place is old. And in his overlook in the treetops (probably didn't climb one literally but it's a beautiful way to paint a picture of his view of this world :P) he sees that this is the way to live. No longer will he heed to the corruption of human (or Earths) ways.

    "Living respectful
    Low your axe
    And learn from the trees"

    The old times are over. Now begins a new age of understanding and respect for the environment.

    "Second dawn
    Meet the sylvanlings
    Passageways into the deep
    Invitations to explore the forest
    Lions gales and chambers"

    The day after he meets the planets residents, they live below or out of sight. They greet him and offer to show him their world.

    "A tree trunk
    Larger than a mountain
    Stands on the top
    Of this hill
    Made of rock and mist"

    This is what it is. Sound so damn powerful, go Gojira!

    "Living respectful
    Low your axe
    And learn from the trees"

    "Henceforth
    I will be always there
    Planet earth will overcome
    Men destroyed
    Scorned and killed their lives
    But the world is on her way"

    He's going to stay here. He knows earth is on it's path to destruction. Yet he fears this new world will with time fall to similar fate.
