A Wolf At The Door

Album: Hail To The Thief (2003)
  • Drag him out your window
    Dragging out the dead
    Singing I miss you
    Snakes and ladders flip the lid
    Out pops the cracker
    Smacks you in the head
    Knives you in the neck
    Kicks you in the teeth
    Steel toe caps
    Takes all your credit cards
    Get up get the gunge
    Get the eggs
    Get the flan in the face
    The flan in the face
    The flan in the face
    Dance you fucker dance you fucker
    Don't you dare
    Don't you dare
    Don't you flan in the face
    Take it with the love its given
    Take it with a pinch of salt
    Take it to the tax man
    Let me back
    Let me back
    I promise to be good
    Don't look in the mirror at the face you don't recognize
    Help me, call the doctor, put me inside
    Put me inside
    Put me inside
    Put me inside
    Put me inside

    I keep the wolf from the door
    But he calls me up
    Calls me on the phone
    Tells me all the ways that he's gonna mess me up
    Steal all my children if I don't pay the ransom
    And I'll never see them again if I squeal to the cops

    Walking like giant cranes
    And with my X-ray eyes I strip you naked
    In a tight little world
    And are you on the list?
    Stepford wives who are we to complain?
    Investments and dealers
    Investments and dealers
    Cold wives and mistresses
    Cold wives and Sunday papers city
    Boys in first class don't know we're born just know
    Someone else is gonna come and clean it up
    Born and raised for the job
    Someone always does
    I wish you'd get up get over
    Get up get over and turn the tape off

    I keep the wolf from the door
    But he calls me up
    Calls me on the phone
    Tells me all the ways that he's gonna mess me up
    Steal all my children if I don't pay the ransom
    And I'll never see them again if I squeal to the cops

    So I'm just gonnaWriter/s: COLIN CHARLES GREENWOOD, EDWARD JOHN O'BRIEN, JONATHAN RICHARD GUY GREENWOOD, PHILIP JAMES SELWAY, THOMAS EDWARD YORKE
