Video meet me in the woods lord huron lyrics

This song is the documentation of the speaker making a deal with the devil.

I took a little journey to the unknown And I come back changed, I can feel it in my bones

these lyrics clearly mean that the speaker went to the unknown, or the higher realm, the spirit world, where he did something that left him an altered man.

I fucked with the forces that our eyes can’t see Now the darkness got a hold on me Holy darkness got a hold on me

here the speaker documents that he fucked with the hidden reality, the occult, magic, he fucked with those forces that we cannot see but that lay accessable to those who study that art. We can conclude that these forces were demonic because of the addition of “now the darkness got a hold on me”, then to reinforce that it is a darkness of a biblical nature the conjuction “holy” is added to the repeat verse. Essentially the speaker made a deal with the devil in a biblical sense and his aforementioned feeling of being changed is the result of the absence of the soul that he sold to the devil as he devil is generally regarded as making a deal for ones soul.

How long, baby, have I been away? Oh, it feels like ages though you say it’s only days There ain’t language for the things I’ve seen, yeah And the truth is stranger than my own worst dreams The truth is stranger than all my dreams Holy darkness got a hold on me

These lines note that the realm that the man was in was a realm where time passes differently. Essentially the psychedelic realm. This is now equated to the spirit world/divine world mentioned earlier. This is again reinforced by the injuction that there isnt language for the things hes seen. This is a realm beyond language ie psychedelic. The later lines reinforce this again and then reinforce that the darkness now has a hold of him because of what he did there and the deal with the devil.

I have seen what the darkness does (Say goodbye to who I was) I ain’t never been away so long (Don’t look back, them days are gone) Follow me into the endless night (I can bring your fears to life) Show me yours and I’ll show you mine (Meet me in the woods tonight)

This is his soul crying out to his lover and saying that he has seen the darkness, evil first hand and that she needs to say goodbye to who he was because he now has no soul. He exclaims that he’s been away so long, this is to reinforced the nature of the realm he was in and the state he now feels himself to be in. He then tells her that if she follows him it will be into the endless night or evil, the abyss, further admitting his now evil nature. He also says that there he will make all of her worst dreams come true, he will bring her to hell because now he works for the devil. The next line is about how these deals are usually accompanied with a sign and that that sign is the mark of the beast and it can be used to recognize other satanists. Meet me in the woods refers to occult satanic rituals held in the woods.

Yeah, the truth is stranger than my own worst dreams Holy darkness got a hold on me

I have seen what the darkness does (Say goodbye to who I was) I ain’t never been away so long (Don’t look back, them days are gone) Follow me into the endless night (I can bring your fears to life) Show me yours and I’ll show you mine (Meet me in the woods tonight)

This song is thought to be a recollection of how many in entertainment have sold their souls to the devil for material success. A theory.
