E A D G B E
Em
You've got beet blood in your mouth and lies in your artichoked heart 
Am                C                D
you’re black eyes stalking through me 
Em
with a birdcage for ribs, that vultures trying to get out 
Am                   C      D
it’s scratching your kidney wings
Em 
we’re no longer feeding ourselves, the raccoons are eating our dreams 
Am                                           C                       D
pushing past our feeblery to keep them out, this morning I heard one sing: 
C                                      C
there's a whole big world out there my son, be careful don't believe them. 
D                                          D
there's a crazy old lady in the sun, she's angry can't you feel it? 
C                      C                C    C     C    C
if you don’t work hard you’re no son of mine, well I’ve earned these riverbeds 
D                     D                  D        D    D      D
& I’ll drown you out until you’ve made me proud if you won’t learn you’re better off dead.
Em 
so, I’m digging in this farm yard trying to find the seeds 
Am                                        C              D
forgetting all I have left in this world of course that includes me 
Em
so I’m building and I’m learning and leaving nothing unsaid 
Am                      C                            D
all I am is all I have, I’ll take this garden for my bed 
Em
and these are not just words built like a city of dreams, we have no use for this kingdom
Am                                           C               D 
I’m proud of you my friends, may your lives be a symphony of freedom 

C                             D
I don't want to live forever. I just want to live for now 
Em
but the angel on my doorstep keeps pointing me towards that plow 
C                                     D
so I’m digging in with both my hands, keeping one eye on the door 
Em
If I go looking I’ll probably find it, ...and get all I’ve been asking for 

C                             D
I don't want to live forever. I just want to live for me 
Em
but your faces just keep haunting ...sometimes it’s all I see 
C                                     D
so I’m working hard at learning all I can I’m gonna give it all to you 
Em
I’ll keep making payments, until we’re all so straight and true 

Em
I want to paint seeds together, and follow you right up to the edge 
Am                                            C                D
filled up and spilling like carried cups, and watch the sun go red 
Em
but there’s poison right here in our water, and a shark somewhere in the well 
Am                                              C                    D
I wanna show you my life, show me your life and tell me it’s not the devil 
Am                         Slide up to 10th fret
I guess I I feel the way I feel, you make me feel like I‘m alive... 
Am                  Slide up to 10th fret
and I’m alive, am I alive, i am alive so you can live... 
Am                Slide up to 10th fret
please come and live, why don’t you live, you can live inside of me... 
Am                Slide up to 10th fret
there’s a home for you inside me, inside of me there is a fire 
C                                          D
inside my fire, there is more fire, and in that fire there is truth 

Chord Progression repeats throughout slows down at "it's the beauty..."

but we take our furnace-chests, and run em neck deep into that lake 
and let the coals stare us down, one last glare of doubt & hate 
but we were wrong, no I was wrong, we’ll just be wrong about some things 
and it will never be, it can never be, it should never be this easy 
to wash away the fire that burns, we wash away our flame 
my eyes saw fire, my heart said escape 
i said my eyes saw fire, my heart did escape 
it’s the beauty in the struggle has me going keeps me shook 
sometimes I can see it in your face God but not in the pages of a book 
and there's something in your eye that's asking 
I got no answers, just clues for a path to truth 
I thought it was you. but yeah, I thought it was me too. 

I don't want to live forever. I just want to live for us 
but the head on my shoulders keeps driving me to be careless 
our brains don’t want to listen, ears squinting for some honesty 
it’s gets slippery here, hold on....we are not ourselves probably 

I don't want to live forever. I just want to live for you 
but the devil round my doorway keeps singing me something new 
so I’m listening with idle hands cupped tight around both ears 
my minds open like a burned down house, I haven’t died at all this year

I think that maybe the A major should be an A minor, otherwise this is good

Same with the E, should be an E minor.
