  Blonde on Blonde session 2, Columbia Studio A, NYC - 30.oct.1965, take 10  

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.

Hey, come crawl out your window
Use your hands an' legs, it won't ruin you
How can you say he will haunt you
You can go back to him anytime you want to.

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

Hey, please crawl out your window
Oh, use your hands an' legs, it won't ruin you
How can you say he will haunt you
You can go back to him anytime 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 an' his friends rearrange
Their religion of the little tin women
That backs up their views but your face is so bruised
Come on out the dark is just beginnin'.

Hey, please come out your window
Oh, use your hands an' legs, it won't ruin you
How can you say he will haunt you
When you can go back to him anytime that you want to.

You got a lotta nerve to say you are my friend
If you won't come out your window
Yes, come out your window, come out.  up

Jingle bells intro

He sits in your room, his tomb, with his 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
He needs you to test his inventions.

Hey, come out the window
Come on, it won't ruin you
Don't say that he'll haunt you
You can go back anytime you want to.

He looks so truthful, is this how it feels
When he tries to peel the moon an' expose it
With his businesslike anger an' his bloodhounds that kneel
If he needs a third eye he just grows it
He just needs you to talk or to pick up his chalk
Or remember where he throws it.

Hey, crawl out your window
Come on, it won't ruin you
Don't say that he will haunt you
You can go back to him anytime you want to.

Why does he look so righteous while your face looks so changed?
You must be frightened of the box where you keep him
While his genocide fools an' his friends rearrange
Their religion of little tin women
To back up their views but your face is so bruised
Come out the dark is beginnin'.

Hey, crawl out your window
Come on, don't say it'll ruin you
Don't say that he will haunt you
You can go back to him anytime you want to.  up

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
