I got lost in a part of the woods
Far from another
Cut the line between light and the good
Out of color

When we breathe
We can see the stare
Seems you're not quite there
And we've never done anything wrong

I've betrayed the whole concept of ground
Right there for standing
Understand though I can't see what's sound
Got branches waving

Deep in the dark woods
To stand where no one's stood

When we move
We're slow and cold
If we're led then we don't
Have to think about what we've done

Streams come on and give all of themselves
I'd like to lie there
That was you in a part of the woods
Now we act like strangers

    General CommentI don't know if this is intentional, but the "thwerp" sounds at the beginning mimic the sounds the trees make when the prince is lost in a part of the woods in the Fractured Dairy Tales' version of Rapunzel from The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle

    General Commenthaha i love the comment above me. although i doubt that there is significance. i may be 100% wrong though.

    anyway. i love love love this song. the part that really speaks to me is

    "i've betrayed the whole concept of ground
    right there for standing
    understand though i can't see what's sound
    got branches waving"

    i think matt pond is talking about hitting that point in life where one begins to question everything that they hold on to for support and the idea of solid ground fades away. the idea of the branches waving make me think of being fickle and living for fleeting moments. the idea is scary but beautiful.
