Under the spreading chestnut tree I sold you, you sold me There lie they and here lid we

Under the spreading chestnut tree I've never been alone It's comfort to know Leaves a chill in my bones The written word is a lie And our children are spies Yet I don't want to die Proof lies in the words that I write But if I were to fight Would it be worth my life They sing whatever they choose Only birds and proles do Why should I not sing too? What have I to loose? Unless their price is you You are the risk i will take For every law I can break Proves I am their mistake Beaten and broken apart Its science and art But they can't break my heart We will do whatever they ask Staying out of their grasp Was an impossible task Their wrong outweighs their right But how can I fight When they threaten my life Two and two equal five In the place full of life Under the spreading chestnut tree I sold you, you sold me There lie they and here lie we, under the spreading chestnut tree I sit and waste away In the corner Cafe As a song starts to play I stare into the eyes so stern And as the bullet enters I will live, I have learned Under the spreading chestnut tree I sold you, you sold me There lie they, here lie we Under the Spreading Chestnut tree.
