    You cant tax the poor into prosperity. And you cant make blacks equal to white by cutting whites down. The noble law makes the trees equal as firewood by cutting them all down.

    Men and Women. Women are seeking equality as men are getting all money, leading jobs, etc and men mostly shrug it off as a simple reflection of how each gender was made and is capable of. However, both genders, forgetting their mortality, become equal in their death.

    It is about the separations of the poor from the rich and powerful. "The maples want more sunlight" the poor want more money. Throught the song there is debate amongst the poor and rich hidden in words, taxation, welfare, true equality. They passed the noble law that man should be equal. this can be related to blacks and racism, and canada's separation from britain.As both were lowere powers and demanded more (blacks = rights, canada = power/freedom). It is hard to explain because it can be interperated many ways.
