lyrics

I've got a trace of the woods and the wastes on my skin
I felt the roots in the soil when I dug my hands in
I cannot wash it off
The land has made its mark

The shadows were liars and I couldn't help but believe
Tallest of tales as they stretched out the branches of trees
To claw at the skies
Cover up the moon
Play tricks on my eyes
Lord let me find my way soon

Oh and I heard them
Those natural demons
Trying to take me for a fool
Evil intentions
Howling misdirections
Oh, the forest can be cruel

I've got a trace of the woods and the wastes on my skin
I looked to the land days on end till I found my way in
I clung to the earth
Laid among the fields
Made claim to the dirt

Take these unworthy hands
Pressed to the heart of the land
I'm no fool these woods live in my skin
Take these unworthy hands
Pressed to the heart of the land
I'm no fool these woods live in my skin
Marked by the wastes I will sow myself in
