Once there was a rock who wanted to become a tree.
The essence of insane the other rocks would all agree.
Never knew a pebble who could ever make the cut.
That’s why the pebble knew to grow he’d have to be a nut.

So grow a little,
Need to show a lotta bit of
Backbone in the face of those who say it can’t be done.
Rise above the others. Wisen up.
‘Least the nuts are always reaching for their moment in the sun.

All the other rocks’d thought it had to be a joke.
Never knew a nut could ever grow into an oak.
Even though the nut could never know what he would find.
Knew enough to know to leave the other rocks behind.

When the oak was grown he stared around the open field.
Wondered ‘bout the wonders that his life would surely yield.
Knew the world had changed and it had changed forever more.
‘Cause every year a thousand other nuts’d hit the floor.



from Revelry, released May 31, 2016
