"In the middle of the journey of our life
I found myself in a dark wood,
for the straight way was lost.

Ah how hard to say what a harsh thing was
that wood savage and rough and hard
that to think about it renews the fear!"

-- Dante Alighieri, "The Divine Comedy"

Dante’s “Inferno” meets the Childe ballad “House Carpenter”:

“In the middle of the journey of our life I found myself in a dark wood,for the straight way was lost.
Ah how hard to say what a harsh thing was that wood savage and rough and hard that to think about it renews the fear.” — “The Inferno”

“What hills, what hills, are those, my love? What hills so dark and low?
Those are the hills of Hell, my love — where you and I must go.” — “House Carpenter”

Reason — represented by Virgil in “The Divine Comedy” — is what leads a man out of the “dark wood” of irrationality. But it is Love (represented by Beatrice) that leads him to Heaven.

Out of the Wood
by Wade and Trena Stooksberry


"Beatrice, what do I see standing there?
Towers gleaming bright of gold -- explain, MiLady."

"Those are the hills of Heaven, but not for you or for me."
"If those are the hills of Heaven:

I'm wasting my time
Wasting my time -- wasting my whole life.
Wasting my time...

Beatrice, what do I see standing there?
Towers gleaming bright of gold, and glass, and steel.
If those are the hills of Heaven, the hills of Hell are for me.
If those are the hills of Heaven -- I run.

I want you to help me, I want you to help me
I want you to help me out.
I want you to help me
Out of the Wood

Set me free from my own jail
Though that's not something that I look forward to."

You might as well face it, you might as well face it
You might as well face it, now.
You might as well face it
You're Out of the Wood
