"The Woods" as written by and Jacob Aaron Smith....
Gone so long I stepped out of the woods
I was misunderstood but in light of it all
I sit back and check their disguise
Their dark shallow eyes got lost in the haze of the light

So I sit back and watch
I see all their masks soon appear
Long for the woods
From this place I’ll disappear

They all strive to deviate from the norm
But collectively swarm to be all the same
To alter image prosthetics are worn
Their primped plastic forms melt in the heat of the light

Then I step to the light
And see all their masks soon appear
I long for the woods
From this place I’ll disappear

    General CommentThis song is about the fact the way people aren't so honest about the way they are presenting themselves to others. Everyone has a mask that puts on face when walking out of house. Beneath that mask is a real person which we are ashamed to show, or because it's not the ''norm''. We try so hard to fit in that sometimes we forget who we really are. He spend time in solitude, he escaped from ''the norm'' and realized that everything is fake and if you are not fake you can't fit in the system.''Their primped plastic forms melt in the heat of the light'' But time will show sooner or later the real person behind that mask.
    ''I long for the woods
    From this place I’ll disappear'' In the woods he can be himself, without any masks, far away from ''their dark shallow eyes''.
