There was once a golden forest, with secrets only known
To our three boys, brave as could be, that reached it's inner sea
From one afternoon of duties, the decision came to me
To venture off the beaten path, where mother said to be

How her words did haunt us when all green turned to black
The treetops sound their warning out; Passed here no turning back!

If this forest you may leave, simple quest for thee
Dive into the midnight sea, and find our golden key
If we do, we trust you'll help us, to make our way back home
Before morning breaks, and mother wakes, we had better sleep

Sure thing said the sneaky trees, laughing amongst themselves
Did their mother every say: You cannot trust a tree.
So long to your flesh and bone, the key is out on loan
Home, home, make yourselves at home, in this golden dome

Still we are trees, the sandman grieves, this dream will never leaf
