"Meet Me in the Woods" as written by and Ben Schneider....
I took a little journey to the unknown
And I come back changed, I can feel it in my bones
I fucked with the forces that our eyes can't see
Now the darkness got a hold on me
Holy darkness got a hold on me

Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh
La-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da
Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh
La-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da

How long, baby, have I been away?
Oh, it feels like ages though you say it's only days
There ain't language for the things I've seen, yeah
And the truth is stranger than my own worst dreams
The truth is stranger than all my dreams
Holy darkness got a hold on me

I have seen what the darkness does
(Say goodbye to who I was)
I ain't never been away so long
(Don't look back, them days are gone)
Follow me into the endless night
(I can bring your fears to life)
Show me yours and I'll show you mine
(Meet me in the woods tonight)

Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh
La-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da
Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh
La-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da

Yeah, the truth is stranger than my own worst dreams
Holy darkness got a hold on me

I have seen what the darkness does
(Say goodbye to who I was)
I ain't never been away so long
(Don't look back, them days are gone)
Follow me into the endless night
(I can bring your fears to life)
Show me yours and I'll show you mine
(Meet me in the woods tonight)

Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh
La-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da

Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh
La-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da
Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh
La-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da
Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh
La-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da
La-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da

    General CommentI have a somewhat more whimsical interpretation that will really display the adaptability in interpretation based on the lens through which the listener is viewing the lyrics. Anyway, this interpretation has no bearing on the LH story line but none the less...

    I imagine the speaker as an astronomer/astrophysicist that is enraptured and awestruck by (presumably) his work and the beauties of space in general. Every line makes perfect sense if looked at in this way.

    Add in the fact that LH has visited the Jet Propulsion Laboratories in Pasadena and they have generally star/moon/space centric shots in their music videos, I would like to think that I'm not completely off.

    On a somewhat related note, I think the beauty of music in the abstract is that it doesn't matter what the writer intended, all that matters is what the melodies and lyrics make you feel. In that sense I hope LH doesn't lift the veil on the intentions of their writing as this would make some people "right" and some "wrong". We're all right and we can all enjoy it together while simultaneously finding an individual pleasure in thinking the song was written for our particular situation.

    Happy Saturday.
