                      MACHETE
                   AMANDA PALMER

INTRO: NONE


CHORUS:
Em      D               C       Am
I have never liked the box of knives
     Em         D          C           Am
You said was a paradox because you’re kind
     Em           D             C           Am
But withstood a childhood that robbed you, blind
    Em            D                C         Am
Of love that was safe and so you learned to fight


CHORUS:
Em      D               C       Am
I have never liked the box of knives
     Em         D          C           Am
You said was a paradox because you’re kind
     Em           D             C           Am
But withstood a childhood that robbed you, blind
    Em            D                C         Am
Of love that was safe and so you learned to fight

You said was a paradox because you’re kind
     Em           D             C           Am
But withstood a childhood that robbed you, blind
    Em            D                C         Am
Of love that was safe and so you learned to fight


CHORUS:
Em      D               C       Am
I have never liked the box of knives
     Em         D          C           Am
You said was a paradox because you’re kind
     Em           D             C           Am
But withstood a childhood that robbed you, blind
    Em            D                C         Am

VERSE:
 Am       C             Em D
What do I do with the stuff
               Am       C            Em D
It seems like yesterday I called you up
         Am       Bm          C            
I had a terrible case of the past
          D           G      C
I didn’t know how to get it off
          Am         Bm      C
I didn’t know how to get it off


PRE-CHORUS:
            G
And you took
         C
Your machete
          G                                          C
And you sliced through the vines that wrapped around me
         G
And you said
Em                    D
I dont know what I’m doing
C             Bm      Am
So I’ll just keep on cutting
       G                               C
It’s worth a little blood to get your arms free


CHORUS:
Em      D               C       Am
I have never liked the box of knives
     Em         D          C           Am
You said was a paradox because you’re kind
     Em           D             C           Am
But withstood a childhood that robbed you, blind
    Em            D                C         Am
Of love that was safe and so you learned to fight


CHORUS:
Em      D               C       Am
I have never liked the box of knives
     Em         D          C           Am
You said was a paradox because you’re kind
     Em           D             C           Am
But withstood a childhood that robbed you, blind
    Em            D                C         Am
Of love that was safe and so you learned to fight


VERSE:
 Am       C             Em D
What do I do with the stuff
               Am       C         Em D
It seems like yesterday I was in love
           Am       Bm             C
I kept on hardening the soft parts up
          D           G        C
I didn’t know how to get them off
          Am         Bm        C
I didn’t know how to get them off


PRE-CHORUS:
         G
And you took
         C
Your machete
         G                                  C
And you hacked through the woods in the surrounding
         G  
And you said
Em                      D
I dont know where I’m going
   C         Bm       Am   
I just know that I'm heading 
          G                           C
From the dead things piling up behind me


PRE-CHORUS:
         G
And you took
        C
Your machete
         G                        C
And you carved out a path to my chest
              G      
And you said see 
  Em             D         
There’s nothing not worth keeping
 C             Bm   Am
You've felt so many beatings
     G                            C
But nothings gonna work if you believe me
     G                            C
But nothings gonna work if you believe me


CHORUS:
Em      D               C       Am
I have never liked the box of knives
     Em         D          C           Am
You said was a paradox because you’re kind
     Em           D             C           Am
But withstood a childhood that robbed you, blind
    Em            D                C         Am
Of love that was safe and so you learned to fight



CHORUS:
Em      D               C       Am
I have never liked the box of knives
     Em         D          C           Am
You said was a paradox because you’re kind
     Em           D             C           Am
But withstood a childhood that robbed you, blind
    Em            D                C         Am
Of love that was safe and so you learned to fight


CHORUS:
Em      D               C       Am
I have never liked the box of knives
     Em            D               C      Am
I’d took it to the ocean side the day you died
    Em              D              C          Am
I stood out on the dock no matter how hard I tried
   Em                D            C          Am
I couldn’t drop them in and I collapsed and cried


VERSE:
 Am       C             Em  D
What do I do with the stuff
               Am        C         Em  D
It seems like yesterday you were alive
            Am            Bm     C
And it’s as if you never really died
             D            G      C
And it’s as if you never really died


PRE-CHORUS:
         G
And you took
        C
Your machete
          G                             C
You said boo, guess who, but seriously beauty
          Em                        D
You said see you got the drill now don’t you
 C          Bm     Am
It’s not a will or won't you
 G                                C
Can’t keep making symbols out of nothing


PRE-CHORUS:
      G
So I took
        C
Your machete
        G                           C
And I sliced off your head and you laughed 
          G   Em                  D
You said see it’s just like anti-matter
 C            Bm    Am
It’s Dumbo's magic feather
