Sinis—the pinebender—forced travelers to help him bend pine trees to the ground and would then let go suddenly, flinging unsuspecting victims through the air. Alternative sources say Sinis would tie people to two pine trees that he had bent down to the ground. And then he would let the trees go, tearing his victims apart. This led to him being called Pityocamptes (Πιτυοκάμπτης = "pine-bender").
(This, according to Wikipedia, which is never wrong.)
Hey hey! She got it turned upside down.
She came from the wrong side of town
Ceiling's coming down
You could be a black market clown
Pirate party town
You can't hide Forever
In the past you tried to sever
For the past will want to stay long
And today's already long gone.
Who, who is the last standing now?
Hey hey! I let the vampires win
And I will always let them win
Old sins cast long shadows
From the shame of hiding halos
But you can’t hide forever
In the past you tried to save her.
Feels like she’s falling...
Feels like the first time in a long time...
Down, down to sha la la la la
Down down to sha lalla la la laaaaa.
You can't hide forever.
From a love you tried to sever.
