from the bush instead of the trees

Apple bush, apple tree
Path to eternity
Find you a path and you follow the call

Apple bush, apple tree
Back
bursting forth
And grass grew on the land, 
The Lilac spoke to the Apple tree
As only an old friend can.

Do you think, said the Lilac, this might be
can do the same thing that Adam
Did under that old apple tree
What he did under that apple tree
What he did under that apple tree

Well, well, well,
of an endless sky
Cold silver satellites, ghostly caravans passin' by
Galaxies unfoldin', new world's bein' born
Pilgrims and prodigals creepin' toward
You marched away and left this town
As empty as can be.
I can't sit under the apple tree
With anyone else but me.

For there is no secret lover
You marched away and left this town
As empty as can be.
I can't sit under the apple tree
With anyone else but me.

For there is no secret lover
You marched away and left this town
As empty as can be.
I can't sit under the apple tree
With anyone else but me.

For there is no secret lover
ain't right, his church ain't right

Deacon is a pimp, tell by his eyes
Mrs. parks said, "Brother starks, meet you at the numbers spot
Heard you got red
his church ain't right
Deacon is a pimp, tell by his eyes
Mrs. Parks said, "Brother Starks, meet you at the numbers spot
Heard you got red tops out,
I know so much she’d be proud of me
‘Cause I’m the only apple on the tree
That didn’t hit the ground
And sit down in the mud

But she’s up in
There's the stillness of death on a deathly unliving sea
And the motorcar magical world has long since ceased to be,
When the eve bitten apple
Adam looked at eve she said that apple's lookin' sweet
The serpent slithered up and said see'mon let's eat
They knew that they were told to resist
There is just one apple on the tree
It isn't like I hoped it'd be
Yesterday when there was still you
I looked and I swear that I saw two
Maybe
Walking down the street
By the house we knew
Weeds command the garden where
Our roses grew
Children I don't know
Climb our apple tree
And scar
the brances on that apple tree
Soar down to the corner

Well, I guess it's not as high as a remember
It might not be a mountain after all
But it was hard enough
You marched away and left this town 
 As empty as can be. 
 I can't sit under the apple tree 
 With anyone else but me. 
 For there is no secret
John Roy was a boy I knew
Since he was 3 and I was two
Grew up two little houses down from me
The only bad apples on our family tree
Kinda
of the lake
Some jump
I got sunk, baptized on credit

Fishin' down on th' muddy bank
Felt a pull an' give a big yank
I holed out three old rubber boots
A Ford
of the lake
Some jump 
I got sunk, baptized on credit

Fishin' down on th' muddy bank
Felt a pull an' give a big yank
I holed out three old rubber boots
You marched away and left this town
As empty as can be.
I can't sit under the apple tree
With anyone else but me.

For there is no secret lover
You marched away and left this town
As empty as can be.
I can't sit under the apple tree
With anyone else but me.

For there is no secret lover
of the lake
Some jump 
I got sunk, baptized on credit

Fishin' down on th' muddy bank
Felt a pull an' give a big yank
I holed out three old rubber boots
Hey warm cider, barn full of spiders
Orange moon, starry night, particle exciters
In a pageant rivaled only by the origin of fire
Now add
of the lake
It was some jump, boy I got sunk
Kind of baptized on credit

Fishing down by the muddy bank
And I felt a pull and I give a big yank
I drug out
The silver cord is a metaphor for the will of the Lord
I was called to climb aboard and explore
That's when I saw the Tree of Life in the yard
The apples
