Once upon a time there was a boy
Played in the forest, full of joy
Building a tree house, branching out the creek
He never knew what we know today
There used to be a yesterday
Before the dam of damnation sprang a leak
Oh, before the dam of damnation sprang a leak

He was four when I moved away
Years went by and I heard one day
He was fighting fate with blood and bone
My thoughts went out to his family
His dad used to climb in the tallest tree
Now he's sad and the boy, on his own
His fate is blood and bone

And all the birds are quiet
In the forest there's a lowdown feel
I wish we could plead bargain or deny it
But nature's just too real
Nature's just too real

And all the birds are quiet ...


It's hard too face his family
The words to say and in which eyes to see
Forever they will carry him around
I see him now when I close my eyes
In the forest he has his paradise
Building the tree house, branching out the creek
Before the dam sprang a leak
Long before the dam sprang a leak

And all the birds are quiet ...

And all the birds are quiet ...
