For (intro) 01:20
When the wolves surround your every side And the shadows of the willow trees Look like, monsters in the night You gotta stick to your guns You gotta hold to your sights Though an army is raging, against your walls And the sirens got you straying From the path on which you crawl Burn down your bridges Burn down your boats Cause we're never gonna turn around Why don't you open up your wide eyes? And see the forest?
When we were young we had fire Bleeding out of our veins Like gods we marched out in the storms The world was ours to rule and reign Then the night grew long You couldn't find the trees you marked The woods now shelter for your head And it suffocates your heart Oh if I could just touch you babe If you could just Let it go You're holding onto it like I'm holding onto you Let it go You're sinking this ship like there ain't nothing to lose The mire and clay calloused your hands Your eyes now blinded by night So wake to find the printed ground And you can follow close behind Let it go You're holding back on me like I'm holding out on you Let it go You're scared of the seas like there ain't nothing the lose
Wayward 04:48
Hunt me down Cause I'm on the run Like an outlaw like wild prey Escaping the gun Count me out For all I've done I've been eating out of enemy hands Like a wayward son You keep comin' You keep comin' after me Find me now I've buried myself alive In the woods of my own regrets I've been blinded by my own sight


See the Forest, a short conceptual collection of songs from Wester Green, takes the familiar expression, "Can't see the forest for the trees," and exhaustively examines its every minute detail; unpacking it, laying it out in a wide swath (with lush folk and post-rock instrumentation) for the listener, all before swiftly and neatly tucking it back into that dense and thought provoking seven-worded phrase.
