Galaxie 500 – Decomposing Trees lyrics

My toes can talk
And they're smiling at me
"Come down," they say
Not afraid anymore
And they talk to me
And they smile at me
I walked upstream
And I sat in the mud
Life sucks again
Watching trees decompose
And they talk to me
And they smiled at me

    Yeah, I know what this song is about because I wrote it and these lyrics are wrong. My name is Emanuel, and I wrote this song in early grade school then delivered it to Dean by word of mouth. It's life starts again. Starts.

    I don't care if you don't recognise my authorship because I was nine or whatever but get the words right.

    This was about an experience I had while camping with schoolmates where I pretended to tie my shoe while the troupe was heading back to the post and disappeared, remaining missing for two hours.

    Appearing like a ghost, standing directly behind my scout leader, at dusk, and covered from head to foot in mud.
