Will you remember me as the one from the trees, when the forests used to sing,or when I locked myself in the heart of the wood and threw away the key? You just kept giving yourself away. A gift to cherish, until piece by piece, you were laid before the roots of time.

Day by day, the nights swallow the sun, and with every night the more you gave, your sadness came undone.

You just keep slipping through the cracks of my fingertips. I only hope that you remember me as the one from the trees, when the forests used to sing, instead of when I locked myself in the heart of the wood and threw away the key.

You're not desire. You're just a fucking widow, weaving webs among the woods.
I'm not the answer, but if you take my hand I'll show you the world of the dead.

There you were, smiling into the night. I watched you sing for hours on end. We're tell-tale spiders, spinning webs and singing songs. Sharing your stories with moon and the trees, with a world which strung you along.

I've shut you out. I don't like your stories anymore, they always end so fucking sad.
I've turned my back on you for good.
Just keep smiling into the night.
I watched you pass me by. Every night you died with a smile on your face.
In my dreams, you wept blood from your eyes.
Just keep smiling into the night, my beautiful bride.
Just keep smiling into the night, my beautiful bride.

I fell for your bleeding crimson eyes, just so you know,
I'll always remember you as the tell-tale spider, when darkness crept into our days. Sharing stories with the world until piece by piece, you gave your heart away.

You're not desire. You're just a fucking widow, weaving webs among the woods.
I'm not the answer, but if you take my hand I'll show you the world of the dead.

I hate sad stories, they always end the same. I'll never forget how the forests wept, when you gave yourself away.

    -Widower-
    Widower is more of a stand-alone track, it ties in with the entirety of the concept quite loosely.
    Some people seem to understand it very easily. A lot of people have absolutely no idea what the heck I'm on about. Personally for me it's certainly one of the more comprehendible songs on the album, for this reason I'll keep it reasonably short.
    Here is a key to assist:

    The Woods - Social construct/community
    Widow - Female
    Weaving Webs - Sleeping around
    Giving away - Also sleeping around
    Sharing stories - letting down you guard and showing your insecurities

    If the key itself wasn't obvious enough, this line sums up the song perfectly "day by day the nights swallowed the sun, and with every night the more you gave, your sadness came undone". The song is about girls with little self respect who feel the need to sleep around because it gives them temporary comfort or relief from sadness/depression. Pretty simple really. Fun fact - the girl of the story is a "widow" and the song is called "widower". For those unaware a widower is a husband who has lost his wife (duh), so why didn't I call it "Widow". 1. Widower sounds cooler 2. because if she's a widow, and i'm a widower, and we're together, then we both must be dead. Only through this fact does the line "If you take my hand, I'll show you the world of the dead" make sense.
