In the warm rain and the dark sex
Shines a light on what has to come next
In the dark pools of transgression
Caught the first glimpse of truth and ascension

In the alley where you found the body
I walked with no shoes to the store on the corner
In the city that could never claim me

In the cold rain on my front step
We raced but you haven’t caught up yet
I ran to what we called the forest
The barn was haunted we had to explore it

Years later someone set it on fire
We all came down to watch it burn
And it felt like they didn’t even try to stop it

That night you asked, “where does it all go?”
I just don’t know
Don’t say it
There is no giving up
Until you’re dirt you are stuck here

And your hard truths can be boring
You should hear yourself we’re recording
When the light’s on you’d better sing your guts out
When the light’s off you fuckin’ sing it just the same

Don’t forget what’s not important
Accept you’re not going anywhere
Then you might find a little peace
The forest was never there

The forest was never a forest
