Before the fall

When the harsh winds blow and the leaves fall down,

When the harsh winds blow and the leaves fall down, Floating swirls of golden majesty,

When the harsh winds blow and the leaves fall down, Floating swirls of golden majesty, When the sun sets as Earth's blazing crown,

When the harsh winds blow and the leaves fall down, Floating swirls of golden majesty, When the sun sets as Earth's blazing crown, We see the truth behind their masks: the trees.

They, bare of warmth, lacking colour, bleak and dead,

They, bare of warmth, lacking colour, bleak and dead, Yet beautiful in their own striking way,

They, bare of warmth, lacking colour, bleak and dead, Yet beautiful in their own striking way, In place of darkness, fragile hope instead,

They, bare of warmth, lacking colour, bleak and dead, Yet beautiful in their own striking way, In place of darkness, fragile hope instead, The branches, stretching outward gently sway.

Their futile efforts to reach the gold sky,

Their futile efforts to reach the gold sky, Before the darkness envelopes the world:

Their futile efforts to reach the gold sky, Before the darkness envelopes the world: Fire, ablaze, as colours dance and fly.

Their futile efforts to reach the gold sky, Before the darkness envelopes the world: Fire, ablaze, as colours dance and fly. Though doomed to ice, they try,

Their futile efforts to reach the gold sky, Before the darkness envelopes the world: Fire, ablaze, as colours dance and fly. Though doomed to ice, they try, and they are heard.

A plea!

A plea! Their branches, reaching, cold and bare.

A plea! Their branches, reaching, cold and bare. A way

A plea! Their branches, reaching, cold and bare. A way--- for hope and new life to spring there.
