"Seed To A Tree" as written by and Glen/hoon Graham....
Oh as I shit I sit and wonder why
My floor's so cold and my back's broke and tired
Life is good even though it won't be long
With the candle comes emotions
Dancing the shadows on my walls

What were your thoughts
As they were flying through your mind
Compared to what you feel
From the bars you're now behind
If they could speak, what do you think they'd say to you?
I do believe you'd be better off if you just told the truth

I never had a problem till I stood face-to-face with me
And I wish there was a way for me to go inside
So I could see
All the faces of the people who have torn a piece off me
As I grew from a seed, oh to a tree

Can you feel the power of the eyes
It's hidden away five feet from where we lie
What do you taste when you take a drink with me?
Is it too much for me to ask if I was to ask you to leave?
Oh please just leave
'Cause I want to be alone

Oh, there's a fine line between love and my feelings for you
High time we washed it all away
Unkind, you watch your future burn before you
Denied the chance of any love in your life

I never had a problem till I stood face-to-face with me
And I wish there was a way for me to go inside
So I could see
All the faces of the people who have torn a piece Torn a piece off me
As I grew from a seed to a tree.

    General CommentAn awesome song about a failed relationship (probably not romantic, just friendly) where Shannon felt disrespected and hurt...and he realizes what a blessing this all was because it made him stronger. The lyrics are great, but the chorus is awesome.

    Never had a problem till I stood face to face with me
    And I wish there was a way for me to go inside so I could see
    All the faces of the people who have torn a piece of me
    As I grew from a seed to a tree

    Great lyrics Great Band Great Song

    General Comment---I think this song is him thinking back on his life.

    ---When he was young he had a lot of run in's with the police and was arrested several times.

    "What were you thoughts, as they
    Were flying through your mind
    Compared to what you feel from
    The bars your now behind

    If they could speak, what do you think
    They would say to you?
    I do believe you'd been better
    Off if you'd just told the truth"

    ---He's asking himself this.

    "Never had a problem till I stood face to face with me
    And I wish there was a way for me to go inside so I could see
    All the faces of the people who have torn a piece of me
    As I grew from a seed to a tree."

    --This is also his conflict with himself (as interpreted from the first line)
    And he's also thinking of all the people who he has conflicted with as he was growing up (from a seed to a tree)

    ---Well, that's what I get from the first half of the song. I hope other people can see what I'm getting at.

    My InterpretationI've always heard the first verse like this:

    As I shit I sit and wonder why my floor's so cold in my bathrobe attire
    It feels good, even though it won't be long
    When the chemical emotions dance with the shadows on my wall

    Makes me think he's preparing for the onset of some psychedelic, taking a pre-trip shit :D

    General CommentI believe this song is all about his insecurities in life. Simply put, he was bullied as a child, and never had any confidence. And the chorus speaks volumes towards this. Now, as an adult, he blames all of those that made him what he is today. Insecure and feeling unworthy. He somehow wishes they could somehow see how they had a part in his downfall. That is it.
