"Hanging Tree" as written by Millard Powers, David Bryson, David Immergluck, James Bogios, Charles Gillingham, Daniel Vickrey and Adam Duritz....
She brings her friends so we wont have to be alone
Fear I might lose my composure without warning
I am a child of fire I am a lion I have desires
And I was born inside the sun this morning

[Chorus]
This dizzy life of mine keeps hanging me up all the time
This dizzy life is just a hanging tree
This dizzy life of mine keeps hanging me up all the time
This dizzy life is just a hanging tree

They say good evening when they don't know what to say
They say good morning when they wish you would go home

You open windows and you wait for someone warm to come inside and then freeze to death alone

[Chorus]

She calls a waitress when its time for her to go
And I know everyone is eventually leaving
I got a pair of wings for my birthday baby and I will fall down through the sun to see you mine

[Chorus]

For me, for me, for me [Repeated]

This dizzy life is just a hanging tree
This dizzy life is just a hanging tree for me

This dizzy life is just a hanging tree for me
For me, for me, for me [Repeated]

This dizzy life is just a hanging tree for me

    General Comment"I am a child of fire I am a lion I have desires" This took on a different meaning when I found out he's a Leo. According to my mother (the old hippie who knows all the astrology crap ;p) being a Leo would make him a fire sign. Apparently...

    Maybe part of it's about the duality and apathy of the general population "they say good morning when they wish you would go home"

    This is a great song, from a great album.

    General CommentGreat song. It falls within the first part of the album, Saturday Nights (when you sin), as opposed to the second part Sunday Mornings (when you repent) and fits in pretty well. I believe its basically saying he lives a whirlwind life with lots of wild habits which are also the sources of his problems. The verses are kind of non-sensical and random, fitting in with the type of personality he has (child of a lion, born inside the sun)
