about

When you make mistakes, it's easy to become obsessed with them and allow them to destroy you from the inside.

lyrics

You took a hook turn
You took a hook turn

I lost my soul in the cherrywood forest, oh
Running with the girls and screaming “Oh no!”
If you can find it, you can take it home with you
‘Cause where I’m going, I won’t need it at all
Take a picture if you want this moment to last
But the picture won’t represent the world at all
All you get is a ruse, a state of mind
Running with the souls of the people you keep out of mind
Take a look closer, you can see it in their eyes
There’s a menacing grimace to the way that they smile
And when they come into your house late at night
And steal everything that you ever held dear
You’ll only begin to realize then
What a lie your whole life has been
You’ve been running with them the entire time
You’ve been running with them the entire time
You’ve been running with them the entire time
You’ve been running with them the entire time

You took a hook turn
Took a took a hook turn
You took a hook turn
Took a took a hook turn
Took a took a took a took a
Took a took a hook turn
Took a took a took a took a
Took a took a hook turn
(x2)

In the cherrywood forest, sleeping under trees
When you screamed “oh no,” they screamed “yes!”
When they stabbed a tree, you cackled a laugh
And down goes another, as you step over the body
There’s not even time for a moment of peace
As the willows descend on his overt smile
And never again will you see those eyes
They say that love is a river, you can drown
They say that love is a hotel where everyone has died
But I’m running through the cherrywood forest
And I’ve lost everything that I ever held dear
So as they smile, as they pick up his bones
Just remember that soon, soon it’ll be you
Soon it’ll be you
Soon it’ll be you
Soon it’ll be you
Soon it’ll be you

You took a hook turn
Took a took a hook turn
You took a hook turn
Took a took a hook turn
Took a took a took a took a
Took a took a hook turn
Took a took a took a took a
Took a took a hook turn
(x2)

There's a fork in the road (x4)
What do we do? (x4)
What do we do? (Sing it!)
What do we do?
What do we do? (Sing it!)
What do we do?
What do we do? (Sing it!)
What do we do?
Sing it! (x10)

You took a hook turn
Took a took a hook turn
You took a hook turn
Took a took a hook turn
Took a took a took a took a
Took a took a hook turn
Took a took a took a took a
Took a took a hook turn
(x4)
