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 you’re 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.
