Our second single off our upcoming EP


When I was a child
I'd walk through this garden.
It was miraculous,
And anything could happen on a moonlit night so long ago.
I strain to remember.
Now the plants are sickly.
They whither and die.
I can't save them now.
The garden is in peril.
It grows weaker yet.
I can't save it now.
Your skin is soft and now the frost is on the ground.
You'll never make it unless you wait till the sun comes back to get across.
You must call upon the Leaf Men. Only they can save things now.
To call them, climb the highest tree.
Sing low and sure, "Leaf Men, we are in need."
The battle won't be easy.
Climb our way to the top.
We won't die with your hands around our throats.
I won't die with your hands around my throat.

Inspired by the children's book "Leaf Men" by William Joyce
