Forest - Radio Edit

lyrics

You wander alone and frigid
amongst pillars made of wood
Under the patchwork canopy
that blankets out the sun

Behind is the last vestige
of a place you called your home
And now there is the darkness
of the unfathomable beyond

Don't falter

Survive on something other
Than the burden that you bear
There is no path to guide you
But your own will to persist

Step by step you're stumbling through the dark
With only glimpses of the others also lost

Don't let it win, you are better than you know
This rite is yours and there's nowhere else to go
So fight the ire and the wear that breaks you down
You will know what it means to be alive

Denied another conquest the dark loosens its hold
The trees turn into saplings and dwindle as you go
You step into the sunshine and the warmth brings you back
Out of a timber cocoon, recalled to life as something new

You were hunted for the treasure hidden underneath your skin
With promise to return you to where you came from
But home has changed now and is not beyond the dark woods
These limbs now carry their own weight and that of those you love

Don't let it win, you are better than you know
This rite is yours and there's nowhere else to go
So fight the ire and the wear that breaks you down
You will know what it means to be alive

You are better than you know
You are better than you know
Don't let it win
Don't let it win
Don't let it win
