Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window? - The Hold Steady

He sits in your room, his tomb, with a fist full of tacks
Preoccupied with his vengeance
Cursing the dead that can't answer him back
You know that he has no intentions
Of looking your way, unless it's to say
That he needs you to test his inventions

Babe, come crawl out your window
Use your arms and legs, it won't ruin you
How can you say he will haunt you?
You can go back to him any time you want to

He looks so truthful, is this how he feels?
Trying to peel the moon and expose it
With his business-like anger and his bloodhounds that kneel
Yeah, if he needs the third eye he just grows it
He just needs you to talk or hand him his chalk
Or pick it up after he throws it

Babe, please crawl out your window
Use your hands and legs, it won't ruin you
Now how you gonna say he will haunt you?
When you can go back to him any time you want to

He looks so righteous
While your face is so changed
As you sit on the box you keep him in
While his genocide fools and his friends rearrange
The religion of the rough ten women
That backs up their views, and your face is so bruised
Come on out, the dark is beginning

Babe, please come out your window
Use your hands and legs it won't ruin you
How can you say he will haunt you?
You can go back to him any time you want to

You've got a lot of nerve to say you are my friend
If you won't come out your window
You've got a lot of nerve to say you are my friend
If you won't come out your window
You've got a lot of nerve to say you are my friend
If you won't come out your window
You've got a lot of nerve to say you are my friend
If you won't come out your window

Come on please come out your window

You've got a lot of nerve
Yeah, you've got a lot of nerve to say you are my friend
If you won't come out your window

Come on please come out your window
Oh, please come out your window
