I can't bury the black dog
Mortuary
Singing till the sun comes up
You ain't getting a hold of me

Bones bleeding, if bones can bleed
Sore and seething all in harmony
You ain't getting a hold of me
I can't believe you're serious
Short tail, long legs, sharp teeth

Coat tails dragging behind me
Torn sails, whipping in the cold dark sea
You ain't getting a hold of me

Rapping on my bones
Beating on my bones
Keeping a beat
I'm sending everything to sleep
And you ain't getting a good hold

I will use the coal you gave me
Make a timeless masterpiece

Oh no
You ain't getting a hold of me

Dang dog
Claws in my side
Slowing me down and making strange noises
Creeping around and settling in slowly
Making the fire grow above and below me

All I need to do now is to make my bed
All I need to give now is to get some rest
Coming in and settling slowly
And making the fire grow above and below me

I can't believe that you don't hear me
But you will eventually

You ain't getting a hold of me
