Stole a page from your book, and a line from your page, and flew into a
lesbian rage..

Chorus 1
        F#m              Abm                  A

A city scene, darkness falls, now skate hard down the gallery walls,

Explore those themes, I've heard your work's informed by queens, so is mine now

E                            Bsus4/B                        Asus4/A
There's a plague on, there's a rat-tailed ensemble burying all of our
heads in the sand...

The saints and a desert use their hands (?) (x2)
    F#m       Abm            A                  Abm
Now wipe that look from your face, the world is that which is the case..

    A          E          A                  E               A
Its okay to be seen, dont dethrone the drama queen, just for putting
     E             B
everybody in their place..

and then there was your body..............(x3)
