The Tree
H. P. Lovecraft Lyrics


Roots
Don't forget your roots
Don't forget your roots
Don't forget your roots

I was thinking about the good old times
And all the people who helped me survive
Now who the hell knows where I'd be
Without the branches of my family tree
I was thinking about the friends who cared
And all the times that we shared
And if I had the strength to be what I could be
Love and respect to the branches of my tree

Family Tree!!

Roots
Don't forget your roots
Don't forget your roots
Don't forget your roots

I was thinking about the good old times
And all the people who helped me survive
Now who the hell knows where I'd be
Without the branches of my family tree

I was thinking about the times we shared
And all the times I was scared
Living and learning in the NYC
Shout out's go out to my New York Family

Family Tree!

Roots
Don't forget your roots
Don't forget your roots
Don't forget your roots

It makes me sad that Lovecraft himself didn't think much of this story. I love it. I remember thinking "why does he keep talking about how great of friends they are, and how well they get along? That seems oddly positive and upbeat for Lovecraft..." then, when you get to the end and discover there might have been both a poisoning AND a post-murder revenge from beyond the grave! DUN DUN DUN. There's the dark side I was looking for! haha. Makes the whole 'over the top' friendship seem more false and realistic. Amazing story.

I have a different interpretation than that of murder and revenge. The sculptor who died was a more spiritual man, being he was a hermit who meditated alone while the second was a man who enjoyed the city life at night. The former did infact become ill and this wasn’t because he was poisoned. We know as the second sculptor was genuinely sad and forgot all about his work. If he wanted to kill him to win the contest he would have been concerned with finishing the sculpture and not on caring for and being with his dying friend. After the first sculptor passes on, his friend carves him a beautiful tomb and resigns to finish his work for the Tyrant. He does this because it is the last thing he has of his friend, the contest they embarked on together, but he fears being alone because the work is a way he can stay engaged in the memory of his lost friend, this is why he fears completing the work as he and his lost friend will be gone forever. But alas when the work is finished the tree branch falls and destroys the statue and possibly killing him as well. I don’t think it is about revenge as his body is not found, I think it more a message to say that the second sculptor left this world and joined his lost brother in the afterlife. This may seem like revenge but I don’t think so, I think the first sculptor was influencing fate to release the second sculptor from his pain and lonelyness. I imagine the second sculptor was constantly thinking it should have been me, why wasn’t it me who got sick, or that he can’t bear to love on without his lost brother, who from beyond the grace created a way that the two artists could be rejoined together in the next life.

He extended a the olive branch to his old friend in the end.
