[Part 1]
             C  
Last night I drove to Harper's Ferry and I thought about you
there were signs on the road that warned me of stop signs
    D
the speed limit kept decreasing by ten
as we entered a town about halfway there
       G
it was almost raining at the train station
we put our hoods on our heads at the train station
         Bm
we threw rocks into the river
the river underneath the train tracks
             C
And when the train came it was so big and powerful
when it came into the little station
            D
I wanted to put my arms around it
but the conductor looked at me funny
      G 
so we had to say goodbye and leave
the monopoly board still in the backseat
          Bm
took that nightmare left turn to get out of town
ran into the decreasing speed limits again
C
What should I do? Eat breakfast
What should I do? Eat lunch
D
What should I do? Eat dinner
What should I do? Go to bed
G
Where can I go? Go to the store
Where can I go? Apply for jobs
B
Where can I go? Go to a friend's
Where can I go? Go to bed
C D G Bm
C
I wrote beach death when I thought you were taken
I wrote beach funeral when I knew you were taken
        D
I wrote beach fags, well it wasn't about you
but it could've been. well no it couldn't have
         G
I spent a week in Ocean City
and came back to find you were gone
          Bm
I spent a week in Illinois
and came back to find you were still gone
C
I pretended I was drunk when I came out to my friends
        D
I never came out to my friends
We were all on Skype
      G
and I laughed and changed the subject
                           Bm
she said "what's with this dog motif"     
I said "do you have something against
C   D 
dogs"
G   Bm
C
I am almost completely soulless
I am incapable of being human
D
I am incapable of being inhuman
I am living uncontrollably
          G
It should be antidepression
as a friend of mine suggested
             Bm 
because it's not the sadness that hurts you
it's the brain's reaction against it
C
It's not enough to love the unreal
I am inseparable from the impossible
D
I want gravity to stop for me
                                               G
My soul yearns for a fugitive from the laws of nature
I want a cut scene
         Bm
I want a cut from your face to my face
I want a cut I want

                   D     
I don't want to go insane
G                          Bm
I don't want to have schizophrenia

    C                           D
The ocean washed over your grave
    G                           Bm
The ocean washed over your grave

A book of Aubrey Beardsley art
G

        C
now I'm trapped inside my youth
              G
and you're in love with late-stage youth
C
Thank god for the little things and and

running out of prayers to sing

Last night I dreamed he was trying to kill you
                                        Bm
I woke up and I was trying to kill you
     C
Your ears perked up
I perked up when your ears perked up
             D
you were all looking around
                       G
and I hoped it was for me
Bm
I hoped you were using your sonar systems for me
C
The ancients saw it coming
you can see that they tried to warn them
       D
in the tales that they told their children
but they fell out of their heads in the morning
     G
They said sex can be frightening
but the children were not listening
        Bm
and the children cut out everything
except for the kissing and the singing
          C
when they finally found their home
at Walt Disney studios
         D
and then everyone grew up
with their fundamental schemas fucked
              G
but there are lots of fish left in the sea
there are lots of fish in business suits
     Bm
that talk and walk on human feet
and visit doctors, have weak knees
C
oh please let me join your cult
D
I'll paint my face in your colors
G
You had a real nice face
Bm
I had an early death
C
The ocean washed over your grave
D
The ocean washed open your grave
G
The ocean washed over your grave
Bm
The ocean washed open your grave
