There is unrest in the forest
There is trouble with the trees

And the Oaks ignore their pleas

Brilliant song...makes me think of all the whiney liberals that will sadly force us in to socialism keeping us all equal by hatchet, axe and saw!

This is either a very strange metaphor for civil rights, a dumb song that that takes itself way too seriously, or comedic genius, and I just can't figure out which.
I like equality but it should be people receiving the same aid and the same hindrances not chopping the oaks more than the maples until their the same
one of my favorite rush songs of all time.

No other band could have wrote and done this song any Justice....
Any band that can write a song about deforestatio n from the view point of the residence is alright in my book.

Hey Stonecitter 908, you hit the nail on the head. I'm with you on this one, RUSH ROCKS!!!
Rush!! No question!!
What's interesting about this song is how it shows Peart's difference of opinion from Ayn Rand. While the tragic outcome is overdone socialism, the blame can easily be put on the oaks for ignoring the plight of the maples, rather than suggesting the maples were wrong for wanting more sunlight.
They are the best! 20+ years of genius and inspiration!

No similar songs, forget it.
Only Rush...
The composed middle section of this song absolutely takes me away. I don't know how else to describe it.

3 guys!?!?

My wife's favorite Rush song...she likes the bunnies and the squirrels that run through the forest when Alex does that little fretwork ditty leading into the final verse.
This is an incredible song.
Amazing lyrics, fun song. :)
"Great Lyrics" or at least "Political Satire Lyrics" should be under the attributes to this song.
