You’ve a sharp eagle eye when you’re looking to find a fault
Criticise, strike them down, with an acid lightning bolt
There are victims galore
And the small ones can be made to feel small
With no words to defend
You will crush them down in the end

It’s just like breaking a leaf, it’s like breaking a leaf

Well your tree starts to grow
But it’s not the tree that you thought
So you’re tearing each leaf
To the shape of a different sort
Cut them tender and young
Train those limbs to bow down to the ground
But don’t expect any fruit in return

There are those who can lift
By a nod or a smile they have shared
And then those who can kill
By the tone of a single word
Yes your love should be tough
But learn to know when enough is enough
Give some light, some shade
But spare your refining blade

It’s just like breaking a leaf, it’s like breaking a leaf
