"2 Trees" as written by James Smith, Yannis Barnabas Emanuel Philippakis, Jack William Bevan, Edwin Thomas Congreave and Walter James Morrison Gervers....
Help yourself, help the rest
Give blood away, give blood today
Each drop away
Help yourself, help the rest
Inhale exhale
Lungs paper frail
Light up away, go

Don't let go, just breathe slow
So hold on, it will pass
Don't give up, don't let go
Grey clouds, they'll, they'll break up

Rest yourself, rest your head
Be still, play dead.
Learn to acquiesce
Forget all the rest
Free yourself, free your head
Don't shy away, open your veins
In wet summer rain, go

Don't let go, just breathe slow
So hold on, it will pass
Don't give up, don't let go
Grey clouds, they'll, they'll break up

Just breathe slow.

Just breathe slow.

    Song MeaningThis song may be about someone he knows that always gives a lot of themselves to everyone. Someone that is used by others in many different senses. Someone who endures emotional pain because of this. Depression occurs in this person, but the person will make it back because there is always hope. This song is dedicated to that very hope.

    General CommentIn an interview available on Youtube, Yannis talks about how on TLF he often used lyrics as a way of writing himself out of of depressive situations, and then he explicitly uses this song as an example. Once you view the lyrics through that lens, they make almost perfect sense - Yannis is almost comforting himself, telling himself whatever bad time he;s going through will eventually pass.
    If you experience anxiety and depression, this song should be your anthem, your motto. It's incredibly brilliant.

    General Commenti couldn't figure out the lines where the question marks are, i didn't even wanna guess, cause i have literally no idea what he's saying.

    i thought i might as well just post up the lyrics that i knew, cause they aren't on the internet anywhere D:

    General CommentI adore this album, this is possibly my favourite song of it. Not only is it a beautiful, swooning and mezmerising song, it's also a song that has effected me in life. I've been in a massive slump, possibly the most depressed I've ever been in my life. I found this record around the time I'd started running, and put Blue Blood at the start of my running playlist, spanish sahara at the end and 2 Trees as a song to listen to as I recover. This beautiful record has actually lifted my spirits, and the uplifting sound and message of this song is one I won't forget :)

    General CommentSongs about donating blood, and things go a bit wrong: the person donates to much. I feel hospitals are a reccuring theme on the album

    General CommentIt's about riding yourself out of a paranoid or depressive situation ... About believing whatever the situation it's not the end of the world .. Again superb lyrics
