Tune-yards – Hammer lyrics

He won't get off my back
He won't get off my back
He won't get off my back
Doesn't see the hammer coming down
He won't get off my back
He won't get off my back
He won't get off my back
Doesn't see the hammer nail his own hand dow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow-own

I am not the woman that you think I am
Oh, I swallow up a mountain and I'm quiet as a clam
Saturday and Sunday in the poison air
Oh, and every day I work I help to put the poison there, oh

He won't get off my back
He won't get off my back
He won't get off my back
Doesn't see the hammer coming down
He won't get off my back
He won't get off my back
He won't get off my back
Doesn't see the hammer nail his own hand down

I'll tell you 'bout the lie that broke our teeny little town down
I'll tell you 'bout the bodies down below the battleground
Rented an apartment in the shadow of a house
Oh, cruel is just the rule when the cat has got a mouse, oh

Froggy went a courtin' and he did ride
Never left his home without a pistol by his side
He lied, it was a fantasy life
He knew he'd have to kill to keep me as his wife

Lullaby to sleep in a self-made sound
Living in a dream while the whole world drowns
Lullaby to sleep in a man-made high
Living in a dream while the whole world cries

And he won't get off my back
He won't get off my back
He won't get off my back
Doesn't see the hammer coming down
He won't get off my back
He won't get off my back
He won't get off my back
Doesn't see the hammer nail his own hand dow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow-own
