Secret Lives – Music Story

Naked without their cloaks of verdant green, the twisted remains of once majestic trees lie wrecked on the ground, their roots too shallow to hold them upright in the violent wind, their grotesque shapes now laid bare.

Naked without the luxuriant cloak of cultural correctness, what shape would a violent wind uncover if my world view be so shallow that I lay uprooted, exposed, and wrecked on the ground? 

From the musical The Majesty of the Maker! this video is scrolling playback of the song.
