The Wooden Song Lyrics

Take me
Break me
Tell me a good one, and maybe I'll cry.

Go with me
Show me
Tell me a good one, and maybe I'll die.

Lately, I've been dancing in ceiling fans
Into the kitchen and out the back gate.
Now, I know it seems strange but it...

    I suspect that this song is about a person who misused and killed a child. Possibly a child killer. It smacks of trickery upon the child. And a person who did horrible wrong to them in a day when you could drift to another town to evade apprehension. As if this song is the child's innocent spirit telling the story of how they passed in a cryptic way. It displays the innocent imagination of a child, i.e. dancing in ceiling fans, into the kitchen, out the back gate. Like a child walking around the house looking into a hand mirror playing around as if they are walking on the ceiling. Or perhaps focusing on a object like the fan during a traumatic event. And then fleeing afterwards recoiling and trying to sort out the strange thing that happened. It's the epitome of a bitter sweet song. Sweet with the precious innocence. Bitter beyond comprehension if I am right in my theory.
