I'm a wounded man on top of trees
Gazing at the world below my feet
Fickle feelings find a way to me
Like hard winds blowing when we're lost at sea

Defeated pride
Finally got the chance to let go
Keeping it quiet
Not a worry in the world that we know
I can't decide
If I should let the words spill out at a time like this
Bright skies
But I've been known to stay in on days such as this

Keep it inside
And swallow whatever it is that keeps you warm
Holding back from what's to come
I crush you
I take it back cause you're all that I've been up to
I can't react and it's numbing me
And taking up all of my time
So quiet
There's more to me that I am yet to find

Keep it inside
And swallow whatever it is that keeps you warm
Keep it inside
And swallow whatever it is that keeps you warm

Take it slowly
I thought the trees were begging me to climb
Take it slowly
There's more to me that I am yet to find
Take it slowly
Even though you're always on my mind
Take it slowly
There's more to me that I am yet to find
When I get to see your face again
Can't help the way that I have been
When keeping quiet's become a trend
That's why it's hard for me to end
All the countless hours I would spend
Making it work out up in my head
Now I'm filled up with only regret
There is no way to just forget

I'm a wounded man on top of trees
Gazing at the world below my feet
Fickle feelings find a way to me
Like hard winds blowing when we're lost at sea

    My InterpretationDisclaimer: This is my own personal interpretation.

    I'm a wounded man on top of trees
    (Trees symbolize spiritual death and rebirth. He regained his faith through learning from a lifestyle he regrets and is still affected by)

    Gazing at the world below my feet
    (Realizes there is more to life, yet sees the world is lost)

    Fickle feelings find a way to me
    Like hard winds blowing when we're lost at sea
    (Superficial things and relationships have found their way to him. The further we are from truth, the more we are affected by these things)

    Defeated pride
    (Let his ego go, the perennial enemy of a spiritual life)

    Finally got the chance to let go
    (From his recent experiences, he had the opportunity to change)

    Keeping it quiet
    Not a worry in the world that we know
    (He knows people won't understand, keeps to himself)

    I can't decide
    If I should let the words spill out at a time like this
    Bright skies
    (He's excited about the positive direction his life has turned in, but isn't sure people will be receptive to hear and understand this radical change)

    But I've been known to stay in on days such as this
    (He was depressed, doomed. That's how people had seen him lately)

    Keep it inside
    And swallow whatever it is that keeps you warm
    (She won't admit to anyone she was deceiving and controlling him. She's going to move on and find someone else to do the same to)

    Holding back from what's to come
    I crush you
    I take it back cause you're all that I've been up to
    (He's taking back control of his life, all his energy was devoted to her. Now she will get nothing)

    I can't react and it's numbing me
    And taking up all of my time
    (The less he interacts with her, the less he feels for her. He still spends all his time sorting things out in his head)

    So quiet (Finally at peace)
    There's more to me that I am yet to find
    (He knows where he stands now, but needs to grow more spiritually)

    Take it slowly
    I thought the trees were begging me to climb
    (He realized he needed to leave the superficial life of the world behind and return to his spiritual life)

    Take it slowly
    There's more to me that I am yet to find
    (He was so detached from his true self, there is much he still has to learn. He knows it's going to be a process and needs to take it day by day)

    Take it slowly
    Even though you're always on my mind
    (Even though his past relationship still lingers in his mind, he's not turning back to his old life)

    When I get to see your face again
    Can't help the way that I have been
    When keeping quiet's become a trend
    That's why it's hard for me to end
    (He looks forward to the afterlife. Because talking about spirituality and religion has become politically incorrect or impolite, he's still having a hard time letting go of his old life)

    All the countless hours I would spend
    Making it work out up in my head
    (Making this change in his life required a lot of self refection)

    Now I'm filled up with only regret
    There is no way to just forget
    (He regrets all the choices he's made, taking him down the wrong path. He learned from them but will always be stuck with the memory of his past)
