the garden song lyrics – mountain goats

i see the flowers in your garden are in bloom.
i see the flags are flying high.
i hear you’ve gone and rearranged things in your room.
i guess you’re trying to cut-off my air supply.

i came toward your window, real slowly.
i knew deep down i was about to strike oil.
i guess by the now the flowers in your garden know me.
i felt them trying to get at me through the soil.

my bare feet felt the cool, soft dirt,
moving up my ankles, but i don’t fear you.
the th*rns began tearing at my shirt,
but i didn’t even care when they tore clear through.

your garden can’t hurt me.
your flowers don’t threaten my life.
your garden can’t hurt me anymore.
your flowers don’t threaten my life.
