about

Barnaby Tree Berlin, Germany

Performer, musician (cello, voice and piano), artist and writer.

I am driven to see what can be done with the bare bones, with just the body and acoustic sound; just the air between the performer and the audience. The physicality of song; the sweat and blood of the noise.

I am a cellist that sings and a pianist that dances.

Track Name: Bring It All Back Home
BRING IT ALL BACK HOME

I´ll ride my bicycle and you´ll ride the golden balloon,
and I´ll chase you across the hillside, across this world,
across this world!
I want to hear all the jokes that they tell over there,
I want to taste all the different kinds of cakes,
I want to hold hands with new people,
and try out all the unusual hats they´re bound to have,
and maybe we´ll bring some home
and wear them out to parties, parties,
wonderful parties, where you smile and you like to,
and parties can be big and parties can be small,
like a kiss, or a firework at midday.

For today, is the day, when you bring it all back home!

Hold on to the handles, we are going to go really really fast!
Then we will stop! and see were we are arriving,
then we will go very very s l o w l y, so we can see
the new things, the new things, the things we have never seen before,
the things we wouldn´t recognise and the things we do recognise,
like cake and people smiling,
I am sure I would recognise that where ever I went.

For today, is the day, when you bring it all back home!

All of those lives broken and bent and still I´m modern and ambivalent,
the price of freedom is not free, thousands have died just for me,
Without the protection of the economic-military-system,
I would have been hacked to death long ago by religious bigotry,
I don´t have a soul, I sacked it, and god is the land and made of chocolate,
I believe ideas are holding us together, i believe ideas are tearing us apart,
I believe ideas are real real things, I believe ideas are just like water,
there for everyone to drink......

For today, is the day, when you bring it all back home!

…..there´s a place for seriousness somewhere,
I think its very serious when you stop laughing,
that happens to me quite a lot, but fuck it!
I´m modern and educated, full of contradictions and very very complicated......

All of the tears, all the hungry, all the fuckwits and the presidents, all the strange habits and your callous ways, all of your tyrants and your lost children, all your generosity, all the things you just can´t bare, all your sleepless nights,
they just have a place back home, they just have a place back home,
they all have a place, oh, back home.......
FOR TODAY IS THE DAY WHEN WE BRING IT ALL BACK HOME!
Track Name: Scary Girl
SCAREY GIRL

deep in the pornography of your soul,
scarey girl is there looking for your hole,
when she finds it she´ll stick her tongue in
and then, little darling, you can only win,

scarey girl, scarey girl, scarey girl.....

she bites deep, deep into the bone,
then she´ll have you shooting like the guns of navarone,
she´s a labido the size of france,
and if she really wanted she could make the dead dance,
oh dance!......

meticulous, accurate, mysteriously so,
she´s a raving banshee, a god sent ho,

there is only what you dream of,
there is only what you dream of.....

there is no defence she cuts right through,
all the talk, all the talk, all the bullshit you......

she cuts right through, she sings this song,
she lets it all out, she goes all out!
Track Name: Delicious Storm
DELICIOUS STORM

There is an explosion of light,
that comes from your eyes,

and it puts me in mind of the sun,
somebody just having fun,

you send your light out into the sky,
and include everything going by,

the dogs, the bees, the birds and these houses,
they´re all included in
your disguises.

Una tormenta deliciosa...

You´re working tables in the night,
your body is there but your mind is escaping,

to the music of the band,
to the music of your imagination,
your soul flies out the door,
and heads off flat out for the horizon,

who can tell where you´ll be
when another morning hits the sky.

Una tormenta deliciosa...

There is something to express,
while we are in this bloody mess,

and if I´m lucky and I make it through maybe I´ll get to spend some more time with you,

you are complete,
from your arse to your teats,
from the melody to the beat,

from your head to your feet,
from your elbow to your knees,
from your storm to your breeze.

Una tormenta deliciosa...

The universe is expanding,
all this is not what you where planning,

The brindle in the fields and the bramble in the garden,
got thorns and it´s still choking you,

A patch of light moves across the mountain,
a hawk dives down from the heavens,

there is no escaping it,
you´re in the middle of it,
so just kick back and shine, shine, shine, shine!

shine your light, shine your light,
shine your light!

You´re like a wave,
you´re like a storm,
tearing through this heart,
this town and this brain,

And you are brighter than the sun,
more present than anyone.
Shine your light!

Una tormenta deliciosa!
Track Name: Sweet Victory
SWEET VICTORY


the earth will come, for your bones,
but the earth can´t yell and the earth can´t dance
so come on while you will
and come with me and take your
chance!

the rocks will come, for your last breath
but the rocks can´t lie and raise this hell
so come on while you will
and come with me and raise this hell as
well!

you will fail, always in the end,
but every day that you have, is just one sweet victory
one sweet victory!

you will fail, always in the end,
but every day that you have, is just one sweet victory
one sweet victory!


the earth will come for your bones,
for your breath, for your heart
but ahhh it can´t lie, not like you do,
not like you do

the rocks will knock upon your door
tear it down, and suck away the fire
but not like you do, not like you do, not like you do
NOT LIKE YOU DO!

the earth will come, for your bones,
barely moving, terribly slow,
until it has you, until it has you against the wall,

the earth will come, for your bones,
for your last breath,
but it can´t lie and it can´t
not like you do, not like you do, not like you do.
Track Name: Mama
MAMA

Had a life long before you were born,
The land was hers,
the muddy boots,
the wild hair,

Mama climbed a mountain,
and came back a grey wolf.

Oh mama,
Were you wild?
Were you free?
Did you have eyes just like me?

Oh mama,
Were have you been?
Your boots are dirty,
Your hair is wet,
oh mama, you haven´t slept.

Oh mama, where´s the key
To the box with the picture of you
By the sea?

Lines on your face.
Come.
Come.
Come.

Oh mama, help me, I don´t know you any more.
Oh mama! help me, I don´t know you any more.
Oh mama!
Track Name: Levity
LEVITY

floating on a summer breeze,
feel the love and feel the ease,
there is nothing impossible,
with some good friends, some string and some glue,

you have such a capacity, for love and life and levity......levity! YEAH YEAH

you opened up a tiny seed,
and from the tree we made a house,
a crowd of friends gathered around,
and from the core they made a sound,

over in the courtyard there, they´re playing ball and
laughing out loud, loud, loud, laugh out loud. YEAH YEAH

bowling along the open road,
we get a message on the phone,
and suddenly....oh ah ah ahhh
we nearly crash the car ..........YEAH YEAH

the wind in the trees and chocolate cake,
finding you laughing, oh laugh till you ache,
a dance in the dark, an orchestra,
a jump and twist, a dance all night,

you have such a capacity for love and life and levity,
ahh levity....... YEAH YEAH!
Track Name: This Great Plan
THIS GREAT PLAN

We took a pinch of terror and a handful of pleasure,
we threw in some early mornings and a long expansive view,
we knuckled in with moving muscle and the silent slip of a canoe,
then we held it all together with a small photograph of you,

this great plan! Get it!

And suddenly we were giants, bigger than houses, bigger than mountains,
bigger than you,
and suddenly we were giants, tearing up the sky, ripping up the bridges,
no why, no lie, no sigh, just high,
and suddenly we were giants, with eyes the size of frying pans and fingers as long as roads,
you know my fingers they are as long as your roads,

and the world became a wall, and we became a vapour,
and the world became a muddy shoe, and we became a pilgrim,
and the world became an oyster and we became a raging sea,
the world became the letters and we became just poetry,

This great plan! Get it!

And suddenly we were giants, ripping up the skies, tearing up the bridges,
no why, no lie, no sigh, just high,
and the sun baked us cakes and doughnuts like saturn´s rings
and sugared them with meteorites and filled them up with jam,
said, come troglodytes, you hiding mites, come out and feel the sun.
Come out and feel the sun!

This great plan! Get it!
You be jeff and I´ll be stan, you be hell and I´ll be bird,
you be the burning and I´ll be the wood,
Get it! Get it! Get it!

And suddenly we´re all just flamingoes, singing fado at some setting sun,
and suddenly we´re all just knock-kneed girls playing hop scotch, having fun,
And suddenly we´re all just presidents with a helluva lot to say,
then a paltry marsh where the trees don´t grow,
then ghosts, our hands held high in salute or goodbye,
against the cold window winter.....

and suddenly we are there, gasping,
pointing at ourselves from across the room,
and suddenly we are there, gasping,
pointing at ourselves from the moon

you be hydrogen, and i´ll be oxygen,
you be right and i´ll be just plain wrong,
you be the car and i´ll be the road,
you be the letters and i´ll be the words,
you be the pink and i´ll be the blue,
you be the here and i´ll be the now,
you be the burning and i´ll be the wood!

YOU BE THE BURNING
I´LL BE THE WOOD

This great plan! Get it!
Track Name: Easily
EASILY

midnight comes and finds you walking and feeling happy,
there´s no knowing where this feeling will take you
by the morning,
the night it comes on silently and everything comes easily,
the air, the trains, the passing trees, the first light of this dreaming,

is there anything better than this?
is there anything higher than this?

patience takes you and you can wait in this anticipation,
nothing lost on you, no breath, no word, no sigh of the ocean,
taking it all in moment by moment, there is no consternation,
shadow play upon the wall, the sound of laughter in an open sky
will you come alive?

and the world and his mother, they go by,
and you know their names, you don´t know why,
and you´re caught and nothing is known,
and now you don´t even need to try anymore,
well,don´t try!

the charm, the relief at the end of a long journey,
you have travelled, you have been unraveled on this iron road,
you´ve been lifted up, taken apart, petrified and hungry,
now you´re here, now you´re here,
will you come alive?

lost the words, lost the map, lost you head on the way back,
open like a clear sky above the ocean you skim indefinitely,
will you ask the stars, talk to the sky,
a new moon comes and it makes you cry,
its clear cut promise in an open sky
ah will you come alive?

Is there anything better than this,
is there anything higher..

and save yourself,
help a friend,
in this
our storm,
this is our storm.
Track Name: Movie
MOVIE

Well when I run, will you follow me,
and when I hide, will you recall,
don´t let up, don´t let up, don´t let up at all!

A road full of people, so silent here,
a road full of people, no sound at all,
don´t let up, don´t let up, don´t let up!

You´re standing still, in a mile wide torrent,
of the deepest chill, thats how it went,

Be my movie tonight, be my song, be my chair, be my poetry....

The world is about you, a smothering shawl,
breath out so slowly, I´ll hear your call,
I´ll hear your call!

Be my movie tonight, be my song, be my poetry, be my chair...........
Be my sky, be my window.
Track Name: Come To me
COME TO ME


It´s an ordinary song for an ordinary day,
now there is nothing but space in her chair,
overlooking the fields into the air,

she was lazy and strange and difficult to read
and it never got any easier, only more extreme,
and you´re hoping to keep going,
and it will pay off somehow.

You´ve given up keeping time
because time´s not for keeping,
you left it at the bottom of the river,
or the bottom of a pocket
in last years winter jacket,

half songs, half promised, half finished,
all alive,

and you can´t wait until tomorrow
when you will be a better man, in a better place, in a better world
and sometimes you think its true.


The sky reaches all the way to the ground
and you carry the emptiness with you,
the emptiness of her,
only that i am and it is, that it is!
and silence accompanies the noise,
we make piles of poetry with hydrolic machines,
history crease the land
and oxidises in lungs and rooftops,
we ride buses now and share fruit,
the stars have changed no-one,
no-one at all,


and you can´t wait until tomorrow
when you will be a better man, in a better place, in better world
but its been tomorrow all day.

Come to me with eyes wide open,
you come to me silently ,
you come to me sparking in the night
like a fire worm or a fire fly,
you come to me open and alone,
you come to just as you are,

and we listen for life amongst the dead
crouched by the window hands over your head,
and we are all that´s left of the dead,
we are their heaven and their hell,
we are their final resting place,


and in the end my thoughts are unclear,
and its just the rain on the window
and in the grasses, people rushing past, the sound of the fountain,
traffic and the longing, walking in this park beside the station
before the train goes.
Track Name: Thunder
THUNDER

have you
seen her
passing
overhead

here i come
with my great big sound

thunder
passing overhead
Track Name: Love and Life
LOVE AND LIFE

all this love and life, that you have,
always spilling out, anytime, anywhere, with anyone,

let it pour,

you can´t sit and wait, its taken you,
a million miles an hour,
you stepped right in, into the fire, the fire of life,

let it pour,

you´re a spinning world, all of your own,
i can´t see you now,
only tree, and only fire, and only smoke and only here and only now,

let it pour.
Track Name: This Rain
THIS RAIN

well the day made it out of the night,
and the songs the world was singing?
they were alright.

did you come round again to thinking
what was it i was thinking?
to come so far, to come at all,
so empty handed
like some stranger who has just landed.

did you love til you burst?
did you love til you cursed?
did you love her from the first?

from the first days of spring....

was it all a simple case of mistaken identity?
was the storm that was brewing all of your own making?
did lifetimes pass, flickering in the firelight?
all across the hill side,

when morning came
it came with rain
and did you walk up and say
this rain
this rain
this rain is my home

my home.
