Lyrics

“Come On Up To The House”
Tom Waits

Well the moon is broken
And the sky is cracked
Come on up to the house
The only thing that you can see
Is all that you lack
Come on up to the house

All your cryin’
don’t do no good
Come on up to the house
Come down off your cross
We can use the wood
Come on up to the house

Come on up to the house
Come on up to the house
The world is not my home
I’m just a passin’ thru
Come on up to the house

There’s no light in the tunnel
No irons in the fire
Come on up to the house
And your singin lead soprano
In a junkman’s choir
Come on up to the house
Doesn’t life seem nasty,
brutish and short
Come on up to the house
The seas are stormy
And you can’t find no port
Come on up to the house

Come on up to the house
Come on up to the house
The world is not my home
I’m just a passin’ thru
Come on up to the house

When there’s nothin’ in the world
that you can do
Come on up to the house
and you’ve been whipped by the forces
that are inside you
Come on up to the house
Well you’re high on top
of your mountain of woe
Come on up to the house
Well you know you should surrender
but you can’t let it go
Come on up to the house

Come on up to the house
Come on up to the house
The world is not my home
I’m just a passin’ thru
Come on up to the house

Come on up to the house
Come on up to the house
The world is not my home
I’m just a passin’ thru
Come on up to the house

Come on up to the house
Come on up to the house
