if you see light lyrics – mountain goats

when the villagers come to my door,
i will hide underneath the table in the dining room,
knees drawn to my chest.
when the villagers come to my door,
i will breathe shallow breaths from high up in my stomach
ah hah hah hah hah hah hah hah
waiting for the front door to splinter,
waiting all winter.

when the villagers come to my door,
i’ll be all tucked away with my face to the floor and my eyes closed.
and no one knows how to keep secrets ’round here
they tell everyone everything, soon as they know.
and then where is there for poor sinners to go?
waiting for the front door to splinter,
waiting all winter.
