Song Interpretation
Questioning faith in the eyes of death is the message of this complex song. Beginning with the “If I had the strength to…” calls out God directly, sighting the things that the person has done, despite the death of this loved one. The Dreaming Tree is that happy place, figuratively or literally, where everything is all right in the world. Speculation over the identity of the deceased person is rampant due to the masking ambiguity of the song.
