The Hammer and the Nail

This song is by Ed Harcourt and appears on the album From Every Sphere (2003) and on the album Elephant's Graveyard (2005).

I've been disguised by sunken eye
I sleep in cars and shout at stars
The killer said I'm not quite dead
Replied then I must hide

Please don't say I'm stuck in wood
That I could sink like metal should
And I see the ocean envelope me
Like I was meant to be a baby

And I see the ocean envelope me
Like I was meant to be a baby

An old scrap heap, I heard him creep
He sawed the rust and struck at dusk
All my hope he crushed and choked
So my life won't wait inside this crate

And please don't say I'm stuck in wood
That I could sink like metal should
And I see the ocean envelope me
Like I was meant to be a baby

And I see the ocean envelope me
Like I was meant to be a baby, oh
