"The Woods" as written by and Elena Veronica Tonra....
I asked Saint Christopher
To find your sister
And she ran out in the woods
And she ran out in the woods

Oh, it was certain then
And we were trying to stop the winter
Killing all it could
Killing all it could

And I pray a lot for you
And I look out for you

We are what we are
Don't need no excuses
For the scars
From our mothers

And we know what we know
'Cause we're made of all the little bones
Of our fathers

And I pray a lot for you
And I look out for you

And I pray a lot for you
And I look out for you

I asked Saint Christopher
To find your sister
She ran out in the woods
'Cause she ran out in the woods

    My InterpretationI agree with most of what LyricallyInclined said, but i have a few interjections to make.
    "We are what we are,
    Don't need no excuses
    For the scars
    From our mothers"
    This is where I Disagree with LyricallyInclined. I think this part is talking about the belief that our past experiences create who we are today.She's saying we are the way we are because of the experiences and scars from people in our lives.She also says "dont need no, excuses". I think this means that she accepts the person she is singing to. As in "You dont need to explain to me why you are the way you are, I understand".

    "And we know what we know,
    Cause we're made of all, the little bones from our fathers"
    I think this contributes to what i said before. Everything you know was taught to you by somebody in your life, and most of them were your parents. So therefore a piece of our parents is in everyone, unless of course you never met them.

    This is all I had to interject. Agree or Disagree, Doesnt matter.
