          Asus2
There's a saltwater film on the jar of your ashes
  F#m
I threw them to sea but a gust blew them backwards
        E
And the sting in my eyes that you then inflicted
    F                          E
Was par for the course just as when you were living


[Verse 2]

     Asus2
It's no stretch to say you were not quite a father
      F#m
But a donor of seeds to a poor single mother
           E
That would raise us alone, we never saw the money that
     F                                 E
That went down your throat through the hole in your belly

[Verse 3]

Asus2
Thirteen years old in the suburbs of Denver
F#m
Standing in line for Thanksgiving dinner
       E
At the Catholic church, the servers wore crosses
   F                          E
To shield from the sufferance plaguing the others


[Verse 4]

Asus2
Styrofoam plates, cafeteria tables
F#m
Charity reeks of cheap wine and pity
        E
And I'm thinking of you, I do every year
        F                           E
When we count all our blessings and wonder what we're doing here

[Verse 5]

Asus2
You're a disgrace to the concept of family
    F#m
The priest won't divulge that fact in his homily
     E
I'll stand up and scream if the mourning remain quiet
        F                   E
You can deck out a lie in a suit but I won't buy it


[Verse 6]

        Asus2
I won't join in the procession that's speaking their peace
      F#m
Using five dollar words while praising his integrity
    E
And just cause he's gone it doesn't change the fact
         F                      E
He was a bastard in life thus a bastard in death, yeah
