Forest Lyrics

Play "Forest"
on Amazon Music

Walk with me my little child
To the forest of denial
Speak with me my only mind
Walk with me until the time
And make the forest turn to wine
You take the legend for a fall
You saw the product
Why cant you see that you are my child
Why...

    I think this song is writen from a victims standpoint living in 3rd world nation, i think "forest of denile" symbolises an obviouse problem all people can see but several nations gov. denies it. I think "You took the legend for its fall" meaning you took the terror you were looking for out of power. "You saw the product, why cant you see that your my child" meaning the "heroic" country that took the terroring legend for a fall, and now that they see the product of it all, they take the product of another and build their walls. The reason he states "your my child" maybe hes hinting that without oil or any imported product the country would not be able to exist. therefore making the smaller less powerfull 3rd world countries "mother or Host countries". when money and power is left unattended when a dictator is gone its left to the radicals, and After many countries invade and war is faught, they evade their weapons leaving them behind. "you left the weapons for us all" I think the singer in this perspective wants to kno why the country he lives in is still being terrorized for its product after the battle has been faught. why not reform and do it the right way, instead of being a parasite to a host country.

    This song I think is about the earth talking to us. She's wondering "Why can't you see that you are my child" She wants us to promise that we won't destroy her anymore"take this promise for a ride" And that we are destroying the forests"make the forest turn to wine, make the forest turn to sand" she's saying that we all are going to go to war"You made the weapons for us all, just look at us now" i think its basicly about todays materialized society, and how we destroy the place that in which gives us life.

    I think it talks about god and jesus, but talking that they don't exist, or challenging them to show up if they do exist.
    ---------
    "Walk with me my little child (little child=god)
    To the forest of denial (humanity/earth)
    Speak with me my only mind
    Walk with me until the time
    And make the forest turn to wine"
    "You saw the forest, now come inside"

    In those parts he challenges god to show up.
    ---------
    "You saw the product"

    In that part he talks to god about what humanity is now, and then about god being our imagination and creation:

    "Why can’t you see that you are my child
    Why don’t you know that you are my mind
    Tell everyone in the world, that I’m you"

    It's about God telling jesus(Tell everyone in the world, that Im you) to tell the "children" of earth that he is there father, and he creates the "miracles" (You saw the product).

    I think that he's talking about himself, being the child of humanity. But in this song he sounds like he doesn't want to admit to all the things that people have done (television, circumcision, weapons, etc).

    Also, it sounds like he thinks he is incapable of doing the things that other people can, such as turning the forest into wine. In doing this, he digraces the 'legend' of human race: "...you take the legend for a fall...".

    Although this is a pretty crappy theory because if it were correct he would be changing his personality every so often...Haha. Oh well. I still like the song anyway. =D

    The song is talking about Satan and a man, Satan is compelling the man to commit act for destruction he's convincing him to turn the forest into sand (desert), by the means of a nuclear weapons, something along these lines.

    This song is about ministeral sexual abuse. Walk with me through the forest of denial? Denial of the abuse being a sin. They are from the melatic religion. Why can't you see that you are my child/ why don't you know that you are my mind. They were the children subjected to the abuse of the religion. This song is very obliviously obvious.

    Hey fellas take a look on that part of "just look at us now!! Why can't you see..." he´s saying us, not me. First I thought right the god and jesus thing till I heard that part... And I don't thing that the armenian genocide is right, it fits only at the beggining of the song. Think about it.

    I like the comment about the two countries us and iraq....But I thought about it and since the band members are from armenian descent they could be talking about turkey and armenia....Turkey being the father and armenia its child. During the first world war...The turks killed millions of armenians in a genocide....Then tried covering it up. Maybe turkey is taking armenia into the forest of denial...Denying that the genocide ever happened.

    I personaly think that this song is refering to Sadamn and how George Bush Sr. "created" him and so he is his child. He makes wepons for us all. He cannot see that American made him so "he can't see that he is there child" (why can't you see that you are my child). The "legend" to go for falls is most likely some ancient and minor form of peace between America and Iraq. The forest is also most likely to be a reference for war.
