"Lost in the Woods" as written by and Greg Dulli....
Surprise surprise
I'll have you know I've come to see you die
I'm hard to find
You'll never tell

You know me by now
You know me by now
You do

Raison why?
Call it conversation
Call it occupation
We'll be here awhile
Baisons now,
Before it's too late
Before you betray yourself
And I to you

Went to the levy
Dove into the water
Dove into the water
Unchaining my light

Fate, the believer
Sanctified redeemer
Camouflaged deceiver
So covetous, I
But you

Baby,
Sitting outside in the cold
I can see that you're not alone
That's vanity swallowing u
Come and see
How, baby
Soon she'll be picking her teeth

Not dead
I'll see you all again
In time we all descend
Not yet
And I won't leave til I know what I need to know
You know me by now
You know me by now

Baby,
Fear has a mind of its own
Undress, it'll seep in your bones
And I see how it waited for you
And I see how it baited the hook
Now you're gone and you ain't coming back

Baby,
Sitting outside in the cold
I can see that you're not alone
Calamity following you
Come and see
That baby,
Sin is a line in a poem
Unknown with a need to be known
A throne in a room with a view
but you're lost in the woods

    My InterpretationI believe this song is about being close to someone who is ill or lost and can't find their way (lost in the woods) and you are doing all you can to rescue them redeem their soul and finding along the way, you also need to redeem yours as well. One of my favorite and also the most telling lyric stanza is this one:

    Baby, Fear has a mind of its own
    Undress, it'll seep in your bones
    And I see how it waited for you
    And I see how it baited the hook
    Now you're gone and you ain't coming back

    Here the person is begging the one in their life to come clean and bare their soul to them so they can help them (undress, it'll seep in your bones) - or come clean or you'll soul will rot forever - (see how it waited for you and see how it baited the hook) - the darkness/sickness in their lives has finally won over and enveloped them fully, it was too late, now this person is gone forever, forever lost in the woods.
