You say whole life you been scrubbed by the light
But I know in your mind, it's the long Russian night --
Your ambassador smile and your helium high
Flash nothing to what I now

When you're at the bar with some boy in your eye
And I hear of your voice 'neath the heater's weak sighs
Just keep my place in your mind, in your mind:
Steppe of ghosts, a wind-scent, the merest of signs --

'Cause when you're gone, you're gone
Yeah you're gone for good
There's no coming, no going
You're just walking 'round lost in the woods

Well this place where I live there's no law at all
She was here once but she preferred walls
And when she reached the inside and her face warmed to red
Was a reindeer-rifle snowglobe that replaced her head

And me, I'm still trying to carve out my place
In a land that gives nothing but wind in your face
And the birds and the wolves, they all want your meat
But they're plain in their missions, they're plain --

'Cause when you're gone, you're gone
Yeah you're gone for good
There's no coming, no going
You're just walking 'round lost in the woods

Just keep in mind mind, you'll get lost in your house, babe
You'll get lost 'neath the snowfences you impotently put in my way, babe --
And you'll never be gone, never be gone again, babe
Never be gone, never be gone again, babe

When you're gone, you're gone, yeah you're gone for good
There's no coming, no going, you're just walking 'round
Lost in the woods
There's no coming, no going, you're just walking 'round
Lost in the woods
