Say from the forest itself comes the handle for the ax Split this wilderness, listen, I'm not missing where it's at Clear a path so that you could find your way back Chop 'em down, chop 'em down chop 'em down, chop 'em down
Said time flies by like clouds passing in the sky Lifetimes even gone in the blink of an eye March through the desert one step at a time March through the desert one step at a time
