C  G  Am  C D
Am G  Am  C D


[Verse]

C          G           Am            G            D
The only thing that's keeping me from driving this car
Em          G        Am        C         D
Half-light Jackknife into the canyon at night
C          G        Am       G             D
Signs and Wonders: Perseus aligned with the skull
Em      G      Am        C              D
Slain Medusa: Pegasus alight from us all


[Chorus]

    Em         G             C                           D
Do I care if I survive this? Bury the dead where they're found
     Em            G          C                          D
In a veil of great surprises, I wonder did you love me at all


[Verse]

C        G            Am             G          D
The only thing that's keeping me from cutting my arm
Em         G        Am       C              D
Cross-hatch warm bath Holiday Inn after dark
C          G       Am         G           D
Signs and Wonders: water stain writing the wall
Em       G       Am          C                D
Daniel's message: blood of the moon on us all


[Chorus]

       Em       G           C                        D
Do I care if I despise this? Nothing else matters, I know.
       Em           G        C                        D
In a veil of great disguises, how do I live with your ghost?


[Verse]

          Em                      D
Should I tear my eyes out now?
   Em        C   G                D
Everything I see returns to you somehow.
           Em                     D
Should I tear my heart out now?
     Em      C   G                  D
Everything I feel returns to you somehow. mmmm
          C                   D
I want to save you from your sorrow.


[Interlude]

C  G  Am  G D
Em  G  C  D


[Verse]

C        G      Am      G         D
The only reason why I continue at all
Em     G        Am         C                D
Faith in reason, I wasted my life playing dumb.
C         G        Am       G           D
Signs and Wonders: Sea Lion caves in the dark.
Em          G         Am       C                   DE
Blind faith, God's grace, nothing else left to impart.


[Chorus]

    Em        G              C                          D
Do I care if I survive this? Bury the dead where they're found.
     Em             G        C                        D
In a veil of great surprises, hold onto my head til I drown.

         Em           G  C                      D
Should I tear my eyes out now before I see too much?
        Em           G   C                         D
Should I tear my arms off now, I want to feel your touch.


        Em                      D
Should I tear my eyes out now?
     Em      C  G                  D
Everything I see returns to you somehow.
         Em                     D
Should I tear my heart out now?
     Em      C   G                  D
Everything I feel returns to you somehow.


[Outro]

C  G  Am  G D
Em  G  C  D  C  G

If it doesn't get corrected the Am on line 4, starting "Slain Medusa" should be Em.

Clearly an oversight of the person who amended this but there you go.
