"The Hammer and the Nail" as written by and Ed Harcourt....
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
oooooohhhh
