It crashed in the forest, tearing off the trees
Hands on my chest, and my pockets full of leaves
Have you seen my brothers lying on the green?
Have you seen my brothers as they swam against the stream?

Did you try to rescue them with your pagan poetry?
Who’ll come and bless them in the middle of the sea?
With the winds-a-blowing right to the bone
When the pipes are calling, will you take our bodies home?

Resurrected Jesus in the river up to his knees
Waiting for the rest of us to fall from the trees


Lyrics provided by
Syd Matters is a musician from France. His real name is Jonathan Morali, but Syd Matters is a pseudonym which comes from slight modification of two members of Pink Floyd : Syd Barrett and Roger Waters.

His first album, A Whisper and a Sigh was recorded during the summer of 2002. He won the cqfd prize in 2003, rewarding the best french revelation. After this album was released, he constructed a new four piece band. In April 2005 he released his second album Someday We will Foresee Obstacles. It is a mixture of folk and of melancholic pop, his music combines slow melodys with acoustic instruments, it does not however forget its roots of electronic music.

Perhaps one of his most popular American songs is "To All Of You" which was featured in the senior prom episode of the FOX teenage drama the O.C.

His third album, 'Ghost Days', was released on 18 January 2008. Read more on User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
