To Every Man His Chimera

This song is by Cass McCombs and appears on the album Humor Risk (2011).

Not you again, I thought you died
I thought you were killed on your wedding night
Not you again, hypocrite
You've come to ask me to kill you again, is that it?
Not you again, I'm no fool twice
I've heard the wolf tracking in the ice
Peel off the latex, fair-weather friend
Is that supposed to be a nose? No, not you again

Oh, Mary
Don't weep down on me
"I don't need a host to live"
Oh, Mary
I'm just too much to carry
Mary

Not you again, my grandmother's Lord
Another friend like that, I can't afford
California makes me sick
Like trying with a rattlesnake your teeth to pick
Everyone I know gossips endlessly
Everyone I know suffers just like me
Have you come back for your saddle, to squat like a hen?
Why are you even here? Not you again

Oh, Mary
Don't weep down on me
"I don't need a host to live"
Oh, Mary
I'm just too much to carry
Mary

The wind knocked down the chicken coop
The cat left a rat's carcass on my front stoop
Once again, I've been seduced
Now it looks like my chickens have come home to roost
