Afghan Whigs, The - Lost In The Woods Lyrics




Surprise, surprise
I'll have you know I've come to see you die
I'm hard to find, you'll never tell
You know me by now, you know me by now
You do, you do

Reason why, start the conversation
Call it occupation, we'll be here awhile
Reason now, before it's too late
Before you betray yourself
And I to you, to you

I went to the levy, dove into the water
Dove into the water, unchaining my life
Fake the believer, sanctified redeemer
Camouflaged deceiver, so covetous, I
But you... baby

Sitting outside in the cold,
I can see that you're not alone
That's vanity swallowing you, come see
That baby, soon she'll be picking her teeth

Not dead, I'll see you all again
In time we all descend
Not yet, and I won't leave
'Til I know what I need to know
You know me by now, you know me by now
You do...

Baby, fear has a mind of its own
Undress, if you see in your bones
And I see how it waited for you
And I see how it baited the hook
Now you're gone and you ain't coming back

Sitting outside in the cold,
I can see that you're not alone
Calamity following you, come see
Now baby, sin is a line of a poem
Unknown with a need to know
A throne in a room with a view
But you're lost in the woods

Afghan Whigs, The Lost In The Woods Comments
  1. engin sahinbas

    such a great song...

  2. Wbfitness

    Still one of my favorite songs to come out in the last 4-5 years. What a powerful piece of music. Nice job boys

  3. Feeling Hippie

    This has been stuck in my head all day, such a haunting and mesmerizing song.

  4. Вячеслав Хафизов

    Мой брат спёр заставку

  5. edkofuzz

    This song is up there with any material from "Black Love" or "Gentlemen". Best song on "Do to the Beast" and one of my favorites ever by Dulli. Pure class.

  6. Mark Thousands

    Peter Gabriel vibes

  7. Devon Gleeson Roe

    Again. Just saying. So incredibly good!

  8. The Home Cinema Engineer

    such an under appreciated band and song !!!!!!!

  9. jesse sarmiento

    Awesomeness

  10. Julie

    I love the Afghan Whigs sooooooo much !

  11. Devon Gleeson Roe

    An astonishing song! This band is fucking outstanding.

  12. Nic Halabicky

    Finally the whigs are getting some good videos. Seriously their past videos are pretty much universally terrible. Love the band though

  13. HAL TheBirdLady

    WOW forget about them! I first heard them when I was 12

    @Heather Lincoln *forgot, lol

  14. Poxie Marx

    love LOVE LOOOVE Dulli...he is...predictable...but...we all love him

  15. xlbottomlx

    camera work is nicely done and the tone is interesting, just the video that kinda.... yeah...

    Song is okay. Video starts amazingly but then kinda falls apart. The whole "good and evil" representation is typical. Women in white dress good and skull suit scrub evil. Boring.

    Would have been interesting if the woman on the floor in the beginning were murdered and there's a killer who is briefly shown with the dog representing neutral good in the fact that it is aware of the situation but unable to do anything, possibly seen at the end bothering a bystander? The killer of course would not really be fully seen but the video would cut from portions of him being seen walking away (presumably to erase all evidence on his person) and the dog seeking help. There would be snippets of the incident that took place at appropriate times throughout the video.

    And that is how it should be done.

    +xlbottomlx thanks Coppolla

    Tony Caiazzo

    No. Not how it should be done. What a pretentious comment from you.

    Surprise, surprise
    I'll have you know I've come to see you die

  18. Regan Dreher

    I love this song!!!

  19. Christy Clyde

    This video, what a piece of art, thank you! Happy I found this just now! Incredibly beautiful and scaring at the same time to me, simply amazing!

  20. Scottie Ray

    I'm probably responsible for 100 of the views of this video. It is the best song off of "Do to the Beast" and one of the best of Dulli's career. The video is perfect for the song.

  21. Brent Crompton

    This is so Afghans and Twilight Singers rolled into one...love it!

  22. Richard Price Elliott

    ick.  And, eww.  

  23. Bobby Crash
