Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window? Lyrics By Bob Dylan

    he sits in your room his tomb with a fist full of tacks
    preoccupied with his vengeance
    cursing the dead that cant answer him back
    im sure that he has no intentions
    of looking your way unless its to say
    that he needs you to test his inventions

    can you please crawl out your window
    use your arms and legs it wont ruin you
    how can you say he will haunt you
    you can go back to him any time you want to

    he looks so truthful is this how he feels
    trying to peel the moon and expose it
    with his businesslike anger and 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

    why does he look so righteous while your face is so changed
    are you frightened of the box you keep him in
    while his genocide fools and 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 beginning
