Capo 2

C5      C5          C5            C5
One hand on this wily comet
C5      C5            C5            C5
Take a drink just to give me some weight
C5      C5      C5        C5            F5             G5
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

G5           C5         G5            C5
Fetch us a knife, start with my eyes,
G5      C5                F5                G5 
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.

      A5      E5                  A5
      Stencil carved since you've come
            E5              G5
      The worst part and you know it
      A5         E5            A5
      There is a numbness
            E5            G5
      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
