Les Savy Fav - In These Woods lyrics

It takes skill.
It takes will.
If you've got it, then you've got it.
If you don't, there's a pill.
It takes skill.

They watered down
The poison in this town.
They raised us wrong,
They raised us strong,
They raised us up with arms 10 feet long.

I'm afraid we're Hansels.
I'm afraid we're cancelled and Gretteled.
I'm afraid we don't have the mettle
To make it in these woods.
The Empire State
Made out of ginger cake
Came crumbling down
Before we got a taste.

Summer settles,
Fall faints,
Spring spreads,
Winter waits,
Dusk consents,
And dawn redecorates.
