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 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,
Take this promise to the end of you.

Walk with me my little friend,
Take this promise to the end,
Speak with me my only mind,
Walk with me until the end,
And make the forest turn to sand,
You take the legend for a fall,
You saw the product,

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,
Take this promise to the end of you.

Take this promise for a ride,
You saw the forest, now come inside,
You took the legend for it's fall,
You saw the product of it all,
No televisions in the air,
No circumcisions on the chair,
You made the weapons for us all,
Just look at us now,

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,
Take this promise to the end of you.

    Basically it talks about how society controlls our lives and can lead us to depression and things like that
    (walk with me my little child to the forest of denial... make the forest turn to wine speak with me my only mind)
    the chorus is God asking why more and more people are abandoning the faith
    (why can't you see that you are my child?)
    Then evetually after we fall for the fake promises of society something drastic may happen (No televisions in the air, No circumcisions on the chair, You made the weapons for us all, Just look at us now)
    People may come back to God (You saw the forest, now come inside)

    So ultimately believe in God and try to avoid the evils of the world

    I think it is sort of commenting on why people don't believe in god and miracles and how the church is sort of selling things to people that really don't mesh with everyone's experiences, because all that society brings us is despair.
