The Woods

lyrics

I was born in the South yesterday
TN said hello with a heatwave
But she wouldn't adopt me, she left me with no place to stay
Camera shutters can't see
Entropy
And its death grip on me
And I can't believe in anything

Cause the woods down here still look the same
Every woman I meet feels the same
Every song that I sing, all the water I drink tastes the same
The woods never change

Winter hunted me down, threw his flag on the ground
In the night

And it's true what they whisper of me
Ran away in the shade of the pine trees
Are you watching me fumbling in the dark
And tripping over things?
And I'll keep on running with my eyes shut with seams

Cause the woods down here still look the same
Every woman I meet feels the same
Every song that I sing, all the water I drink tastes the same
Cause the woods down here still look the same
Every woman I meet feels the same
Every story I'm told, everybody I know hides their name
Cause the woods never change
