My friend gave me this short riddle, but it took me quite a while to find the answer. Thought the Puzzling community would like to have a go at it!

Made of wood and metal, I get you home.
Made of blood and flesh, in the darkness I roam.
What am I?

  • $\begingroup$ Hi! Welcome to Puzzling! Why don't you take the tour while you're here (you'll also get a badge)? By the way, Stack Exchange is trying to make the site https compliant, so in your next edit, would you mind changing your link to Sci-fi SE to https? Thanks! $\endgroup$ – boboquack Mar 31 '17 at 7:37
