lyrics

Go 'way from me, smoking god
Get out of my eyes
You fill my sight with ironwood
You fill my sight with flies

Go 'way from me, ragged claws
Get you off my back
I am not your one true love
& you are not my haversack

Don't come knockin' at my window
Don't come rattling my door
Don't sit down across the table
I can't feed you anymore

Go 'way from me, heavy heart
Pull the anchor in
Make me like the marble snake
Let me shed my skin

Go 'way from me, sleeping bear
Let me out this cave
I am not your winter's meat
& you are not my buryin' place

Don't come knockin' at my window
Don't come rattling my door
Don't sit down across the table
There ain't nothin' here no more

Get away o devil's tongue
Won't you shut your jaw
I am hoarse & hollow from
Abiding by your law

Get away, o get away
You socket wrench, you thunderstorm
I am not your furnace coal
& you have never kept me warm

Don't come knockin' at my window
Don't come rattling my door
Don't sit down across the table
Don't you wait for me come morning
Don't you follow down the alley
Don't you dog me down the road
Don't you poison all my coffee
Don't you tread upon my throat
O my blindfold, o my bloodhound
O no lightbulb, o no sound
O no welcome, o no white noise
O no ocean, o get out
Get out, get out, get out, get out
