"Lost In The Woods" as written by William Patrick Corgan, Michael Frederick Dewolf, Philip M Lipscomb, Jarrod Douglas Montague and Stephen Steele Richards....
Tonight I'm freakin' out again
Tonight I'm thinkin' so low
All I wanted was a friend all I've got is no one
Tonight I'll sleep alone I won't sleep at all
My heart isn't alive

Right now I'm sinking further down
Right now I'm breaking inside
A long drive to see you lie in bed
A long ride wishing for your life
Tonight I'll stay with you
And I will get us through

My heart ripped from my chest
Too late I hope not for this
My heart isn't alive
(My arms carry the weight
Two hands folded yet straight
My arms closed in a prayer for you)

Nauseous preparing for the worst
Cautious repairing open wounds
Yet somehow believing in a chance
It'll turn out to be another test
And you'll come back again

You're lost in the woods they say to me

    General CommentPersonally, I think this song is about a girl. A relationship where a girl has hurt a guy, and doesn't want to be with him anymore but he still wants to be with her, and loves her alot. Without her, his heart isn't alive..

    I feel exactly the same as that right now because my girlfriend broke up with me only a few days ago. It really hurts, this song makes me cry everytime I hear it now..

    General CommentI first thought this was about a girl, because of the whole idea of a sonf and sim sure everyones had the same feeling as is betrayed the whole song "nausesous preparing for the worst".
    but then he says "all i wanted was a friend and all ive got is no one" so maybe it was about a girl, but he needed a friend to be there for him,and he has know one. Everyones been there.

    General CommentI have heard the meaning of this song right from Steve. Its actually a song about a parent. In this case it was Jarrod's mother. Its kind of like the song 11 months. Good thing is everything worked out and everyone is ok

    General CommentThis song was originally written by Billy Corgan.. Corgan handed the song off to Taproot (He co-wrote two other songs on BSR, "Violent Seas", and "Promise"). Apparently the original was performed by Corgan a few times live, and there's an mp3 of it you can d/l on either an SP or Taproot forum.. Corgan's version is a bit different melodicaly and lyrically, but there's many similarities as well. This is the best song on BSR, and Violent Seas isn't far behind.. Taproot needs to continue this collaboration w/ Corgan imo.

    General CommentUnbelievably this is one of my favourite songs ever. Taproot are the most understated band of all time, this album especially.

    General Commentgreat song.
    does anyone know what the line
    "Nauseous, preparing for the worst
    Cautious, repairing open wounds
    Yet somehow believing in a chance
    It'll turn out to be another test
    and you'll comeback again"
    means?
