I got idea man You take me for a walk Under the sycamore trees The dark trees that blow, baby In the dark trees that blow And I'll see you And you'll see me And I'll see you in the branches that blow In the breeze I'll see you in the trees I'll see you in the trees Under the sycamore trees And I'll see you And you'll see me And I'll see you in the branches that blow In the breeze I'll see you in the trees I'll see you in the trees Under the sycamore trees

“The Sycamore Trees”, sung by Jimmy Scott, written by David Lynch and  Angelo Badalamenti

Something happens in the song that’s hard to explain... even between the repetitions of the chorus, you can feel the song’s characters changing.  I think it’s the repetition of the speaker seeing the “you”, and the “you” only sees the speaker once.  What’s happening to the “you”?  Why does the speaker insist upon seeing the “you”?  Is it really the trees that transforms the “you”, or does the speaker’s gaze mutate the “you”?

I feel like this song can see though me, through the forest of identity and context to the wavering flame that I’ve borrowed from the world.

my 2021 goal is to remake twin peaks by taking all the aesthetic gifsets and then printing them as hieroglyphs for future generations
