started quoting Tolstoy into the machine,
     G6 (320000@1) Em11/F#      Ei (022100@1)had no idea what you meant.

i guess i'm supposed to figure these things out, 
   G6 (320000@1)         Em11/F#      Eor (022100@1)maybe it's supposed to be self-evident.
              C (x32010@1)  Cadd9/B
but i've gone feral,
    Cadd9/A           G6 (320000@1)Em11/F#-E*
and i don't speak the language anymore.
C (x32010@1)          Cadd9/B       Cadd9/A  G6 (320000@1)Em11/F#   Ewe're (022100@1)headed deep into the forest,

i've got the pedal to the floor.

Bb (x1333x@1)                       Ayou (x02220@1)can bring out all your weapons,
                        Eyou (022100@1)can't make me go to war.
