lyrics

Old dead weather lost and gone, she says
"Whether you're right, you're gonna be wrong"
I'm not coming back, I ain't moving on, she says
"Man keep singing the same tired song"

Oh let me be, Lord let me be!
Oh won't you cut me down and set me free?
Or I'll set the woods on fire

We make our beds
How we love to lie, she says
"The last thing to go is pride"
Clean the blood, wipe your brow, she says
"Yeah there's nothing we can do about it now"

Oh, let me be, Lord let me be!
Oh won't you cut me down or set me free?
Or I'll set the woods on fire

Piece by piece
Life wears you down, she says
"Rust to dust, buried in the ground"
Them big ideas gone up in smoke, she says
"Ain't life sad, ain't life a fuckin' joke!"

On fire!
We set the woods on fire

Oh let me be, Lord, let me be!
Won't you cut me down and set me free?
