lyrics

It was a heavy load that you carried back home
let the open arms of a winter stream carry you away
with diamonds surrounding all you fall down
and floating behind you all the branches you mind
for throwing on the fire the crackling and popping wet wood
with embers on your mind you’re doing with a little boy should
you knew you’d raise the ire of the cackling old hag of the woods
the city flipped a switch, put a match on your soul
now you strike it up for burning wood instead of coal
come to find resting space among rock and rapids
under broken bridge and snow no one will find
gathering branches block our view and the beavers make a dam of you
maybe when summer rolls around I’ll light a punk and burn your coffin down
for throwing on the fire the crackling and popping wet wood
with embers on your mind you’re doing with a little boy should
you knew you to raise the ire of the cackling old hag of the woods
