Bm Em Dad I know A You can't see F# My actions as Bm A plea for peace Em You can't get past A The rocks stained red F# The nail bomb blast Bm The doctor, dead Em Your prairie dream A Your liberal heart F# Your patient mind Bm Your father's arms Em They just won't do A They just can't fit F# It's them, not Marx D You can blame for this Bb A D Alive in the dirt Em Alive in the dirt F# Bm I'm at peace, sainted and waiting F For my perfect pain to speak through me again Break: Bm, Em, A, F#, Bm Em Dad, I found God A Through Vietnam F# Mai Lai's graves Bm Agent Orange Em See, we live lies A We have to choose F# Our bombs speak loud Bm So I spoke, too Em Then disappeared A Ten miles from home F# Newark slum Bm Where you won't go Em It's here I've found A My higher self F# A life that works D And suits me well Bb A D I pray for the dirt Em I pray for the dirt F# Bm F And I ask to suffer in silence G C To stay here in hell G# G C Awake in the dirt G# G Em Awake in the dirt Am F Awake in the dirt now Bm Em My stutter lifts A My words come clear F# Your little girl Bm She's just not here Em I am sure A At my death F# The truth will float Bm On God's sweet breath Em Until that time A Don't ask for me F# Behind this veil D Is where I'll be Bb A D At one with the dirt Em At one with the dirt F# Bm I'm at peace, sainted and waiting F Bm For my perfect pain to cover me for good?
