We all went out underneath the alder tree
And in alder shade we spoke so carefully
But way back amongst the knotted pines
It was dim, and things grew honest then

Under the pines

Now all of the tendons of the world are loosed
And in the dark light of pine we speak the truth
Yes way back, oh things grew honest then
Paths diverge into the boring mist

Under the pines

    General Commentwhat are the saying before they shout UNDER THE PINES? all i hear is ALL I WAAH BLAAH WAAH UNDER .. THE .. PINES

    oh, i think they are just going "under under under under" the pines all against each other before coming together for 'under the pines'.

    anyway, this song rocks. it doesn't mean anything to me aside from 'rock the fuck out' and 'i like tree imagery'
