Originally from the album "The Woods Are Burning" by Brian McGrath, released in 2018.

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