Intro: G, Csus2, C x2

      G          Csus2            C
A disappointment falls through my arms
         G      Csus2      C
I take a minute to lose my charm
      G           Csus2       C
And I wait by the lines of no light
Am
Sinking into no such paradise

G, Csus2, C

                       G           Csus2        C
And everybody's seeing grey lights losing their shine
        G        Csus2      C
Pushing forward, holding my time
      G               Csus2          C
And I stand, hold the fort, mount my throne
          Am                         Dadd9                        
It's like waking up wearing the same clothes
                 Am
Wearing the same clothes

             G              Csus2     C
So would you please, please move your things
             G        Csus2      C
'We're gonna hold you down' they sing
          G              Csus2     C
Would you please, please move your things
         Am           Dadd9
Said the keepers, the keepers of my strings

G, Csus2, C x2

          G    Csus2        C
I saw the bows bounce of my chest
                G            Csus2    C
They're writing headlines of peaceful unrest
           G            Csus2          C
And will I ever see the masterpiece on show
          Am                         Dadd9
It's like waking up wearing the same clothes
                 Am
Wearing the same clothes

              G              Csus2     C
And would you please, please move your things
             G        Csus2      C
'We're gonna hold you down' they sing
             G              Csus2      C
So would you please, please move those things
         Am           Dadd9
Said the keepers, the keepers of my

Am             Bm
For crying out loud
                  Em7add9
I'm breaking down boundaries
                Am
And I'm finding out
         Bm 
How many times will it be
       Em
That I fall
D        Cm
Down and out

              G              Csus2     C
And could you please, please move your things
             G        Csus2      C
'We're gonna hold you down' they sing
             G              Csus2      C
So would you please, please move those things
         Am      Dadd9
Said the keepers of my
G              Csus2     C
Please, please move your things
             G        Csus2      C
'We're gonna hold you down' they sing
             G              Csus2      C
So would you please, please move those things
         Am
Said the keepers
         Dadd9
Said the keepers
      G       Csus2    C
Of my strings

G Csus2 C

         Am
Ain't no keepers
Dadd9
Pulling on my strings
