Split Enz — Hermit Mcdermitt lyrics

(T Finn) - Frenzy
-================================-

I'm Hermit Mcdermitt, if there's a better way I'll learn it
I'm Hermit Mcdermitt, my irregular ways confirm it
I'm Hermit Mcdermitt, in my tower of ivory, if you find me, I'll burn it
You won't see me for dust, there's no one I trust, a hermit I must be

I won't be your criminal, I don't want your laws
Your taxi cabs and cheap kebabs and dingy dancing halls
I don't want your wedding bells, no top notch salary
It's a cabin in the hills or a cottage by the sea for me

I'm Hermit Mcdermitt, if there's a better way I'll learn it
I'm Hermit Mcdermitt, my irregular ways confirm it
I'm Hermit Mcdermitt, in my tower of ivory, if you find me, I'll burn it
You won't see me for dust, there's no one I trust, a hermit I must be

You treated me like an afterthought, and after all I'd done
Subjected me to ridicule, that's your idea of fun
O city full of promises and citadels so grand
I said goodbye to you and yours, and left for no-man's land
No man... No-man's land

I'm Hermit Mcdermitt, if there's a better way I'll learn it
I'm Hermit Mcdermitt, my irregular ways confirm it
I'm Hermit Mcdermitt, in my tower of ivory, if you find me, I'll burn it
You won't see me for dust, there's no one I trust, a hermit I must be
Must be...

Living in the wilderness brings out the beast in me
I know I'm not the only one whose scent is on the breeze
Some of us have broken hearts or a price upon our heads
One day soon we'll all return and kill you in your beds
Kill you in your bed

Whoa..
I'm Hermit
(yeah!) Mcdermitt (yeah!) if there's a better way I'll learn it
I'm Hermit
(yeah!) Mcdermitt (yeah!), my irregular ways confirm it
I'm Hermit
(yeah!) Mcdermitt (yeah!),
In my tower of ivory if you find me I'll burn it
You won't see me for dust, there's no one I trust, a hermit I must be
Must be...
I'm Hermit
(yeah!) Mcdermitt (yeah!)... [repeat]

Relax, do it. Relax, just do it. Relax, just do it. Relax, just do it...

I'm Hermit
(yeah!) Mcdermitt (yeah!)
