VERSE 1

G
I grew up blind
just like everyone's child
in the warmth of milk and deceit
smothered by love and the chemical dust
there was never enough to believe



BRIDGE:

Em
They chewed me up

D9
they spat me out 

G
of their system and onto their street

G                            F
and the rest of my life was spent to forget 

D9               C                G
all the greatness that could never be



CHORUS:

            Em
Oh beautiful town

     C                         G
I remember you blacker than the night

                     Em
the whores and the sick mouths

    C                 G
the bad taste and the neon lights


           Em
Oh beautiful town,

              C                          G
where are you now with your binge insecurities?
  
           Em                C
I shot you down beautiful town 

                        F
because you tear your children

    G 
into pieces 



VERSE 2


G
Absence twisted with fondness 
is the horror I couldn't forget
programmed into great art 
of family, lies and debts



BRIDGE 2:


Em               D9
too much expectation 

G
followed by hope and then hate in the mess

G                               F
and the rest of my life was a glorious test 

D9              C              G
of my will and my selfish neglect



CHORUS:

            Em
Oh beautiful town

     C                         G
I remember you blacker than the night

                     Em
the whores and the sick mouths

    C                 G
the bad taste and the neon lights


           Em
Oh beautiful town,

              C                          G
where are you now with your binge insecurities?
  
           Em                C
I shot you down beautiful town 

                        F
because you tear your children

    G 
into pieces 



VERSE 3:

 
G
On the floor boards under insolent feet
I mapped the hopscotch to my parents retreat
with a lavender bag in my hand 
and words of desperation on my tongue



BRIDGE 3:


Em           D9       G
goodnight father, goodnight mother

    F                   D9     C     G
Are you still awake?
