Capo 2

C      C/B          C/A            C/B
One hand on this wily comet
C      C/B            C/A            C/G
Take a drink just to give me some weight
C      C/B      C/A        C/G            F             G
Some uberman I would make up, barely a vapor

They shone a chlorine light on
A host of individual sins
Let's carve my aging face off

G           C         G            C
Fetch us a knife, start with my eyes,
G      C                F                G 
Down so the lines form a grimacing smile


Close your eyes to coral the virtues
Is this fooling anyone else
Never worked so long and hard to cement a failure

We can blow on our thumbs and posture
But the loneliest is delicate things
The wind from a wasp could blow them

Into the sea, with stones on their feet
Lost to the light and the loving we need.

      Am      Em                  Am
      Stencil carved since you've come
            Em              G
      The worst part and you know it
      Am         Em            Am
      There is a numbness
            Em            G
      In your heart and its growing


With burnt sage and a forest of bygones
I click my heals get the devils in line
A list of thing I could lay the blame on that give me a way out

But with each scent it is front and center
Like a dot stuck square in your eye
Every post you can hitch your faith on is

A pie in the sky, chock full of lies
A tool we devise to make sinking stones fly
