Out in the woods, under the stars, a person finds out who they truly are.

there is no absolution for the obsolete

the next generation simply shakes the dust
off their feet

we all lie to ourselves for some kind of purpose
but some lies are truth in disguise
and some utterly worthless

out here in the forest
darkness does not exist
for all eyes are adjusted
our clarity, your mist

if somebody told you that you're a peasant
a slave as sure as your fathers past
and present

and that you'll find no freedom in a city
and the best you could expect from it
is pity

out here in the forest
the currency is sweat
if you don't learn to give then
you never learn to get

there is no such thing as equal rights
until the day that all creatures have
equal might

and this is a day that i would truly dread
for that would mean we're all
equally dead

out here in the forest
we all know our place
since we know no shame
we know no disgrace

you withold love because you are a slave
it's easy for you because there is no
life to save

they taught you freedom was independence
so you keep your hearts hungry cold
and defenseless

out here in the forest
many walk alone
but those of us unbroken
always seek a home

so if we seem too eager
to drag you to the trees
it's because something about you
didn't look well on its knees
