Treasure Island

Theorem The Truth Serum

(1979-present / San Leandro)

Tree Of Dreams


My mind is a tree of growing dreams
It seems like it produces more each day
But with every day that passes
There is also a forgotten one
When you add all the forgotten ones
you get a tree that is dry
A tree with many rings
but with one leaf
One green leaf that appears
every day but also dries up
when the next day comes
When a tree only has one leaf
no one really looks at it
It is a tree with no ambition
A tree with only one dream
No one wants a tree with one dream
especially if it is never fulfilled

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
