"Set the Woods on Fire" as written by and Orenda Fink....
We make things better, we make things hard
A shelter of sorrow grows in the dark
Oh, how long must the soul survive
Under the weight of these haunted pines?

Set the woods on fire
Set the woods on fire, now

Like Randall Adams and the thin blue line
You're not guilty but you're doing time
Oh, how long must the soul endure
To find that silence is all you get for yours?

Set the woods on fire
Set the woods on fire, now

We make things better, we make things hard
We make things better, we make things hard, no
Oh, how high will the flames reach?
Behind every tree is just another dream

Set the woods on fire
Set the woods on fire
Set the woods on fire
Set the woods on fire, now

    General Commenti think this is about the postmodern life, especially technology and alienation; these trees and woods grow over us and shadow us from one another, covering up our hopes, dreams, and sorrow over the way things are... the soul of the people, in other words our inner selves are being crushed and harmed under the weight, so 'set the woods on fire' means to take down the false pretenses and all the dishonesty that exists in society, especially in the way that classes relate to each other and how those relations are expressed.
