Come on up to the House – Lyrics

Come on up to the House – Lyrics

 

By: Tom Waits

 

Well the moon is broken
And the sky is cracked
Come on up to the house
The only things 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 the 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
You gotta come on up to the house

 

Does 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
There’s nothin in the world

 

(Chorus)
there’s nothin in the world
that you can do
you gotta come on up to the house
and you 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 go
you gotta come on up to the house
(Chorus)
