Circle of life stuff, as the people in that novel depended on the trees for their very existence. Flag chrisrazor on February 16, General Comment I love this song - I love the energy I feel from the music and the imagery I get from the lyrics. I always wondered what it was about - my husband thought about death from 'feed the tree. General Comment No one deals with the "silver baby come to me if it is the narrator, she would be talking to herself , I'll only hurt you in my dreams.
Death hurts, jack. If you've not seen it up close and personal, your time is coming. I like the singer's voice and the music, but there is something evil about that line. I thought it is about a child molester There is more to the real meaning than the performer is letting on.

The old man is calling the little girl and says "I'll only hurt you in MY dreams", not "your dreams". So it is NOT about a kid being afraid of death. Clearly the old man is saying he thinks about hurting her in his dreams.
In general, I find that song lyrics often do not fit what the authors claim they mean. Often, they attribute some amazing meaning behind pathetically weak lyrics.

All of my records comes from a pet-free and smoke-free home.It's still not the best Belly song ever, but much better than the album track. As for Feed the Tree remix, i can't say i noticed a significant difference between the remix and standard versions. Since i adore Dream On Me so completely, i think this is one of the best Belly singles, and a 5/5(1).
