Treetop Song

This song is by The Mountain Goats and appears on the EP New Asian Cinema (1998).

All along the interstate
The palm trees were calling out to me
The line of them stretched fown the highway forever
As far as I could see
I waited till the sun was coming up
Light morning traffic and a cool spring breeze
I heard the old voices calling down
From the tops of the trees

When I got up to the top, my head got light
For a minute everything in the world was all right
I saw the next tree just 10 feet away
Give or take a few feet I guess
Then I pushed off into the air with all my might
Headed out into the center of the morning light
I knew that I was gonna make it
The new tree hardly shook to acknowledge my arrival
I knew that I would be all right
