[VERSE 1]

G
The cathedral in Cologne looks like a spaceship
                      D                G
like the hand of God falling from the sky
    C                                    G
A thousand stone-carved saints hang like icicles
    A                      D
but icicles don't take a thousand years to die

[INTERLUDE]

                     C                           G

[VERSE 2]

G
And everyone who's ever worked on this cathedral
                 D             G
or even spent a moment walking by
     C                              G
Everyone of us is swept away like breadcrumbs
      A                              D             C    G
What comfort does it bring, soaring towers left behind?

[VERSE 3]

G
There's a fiberglass castle in Wisconsin
                 D                 G
where kids race go-karts around a moat
C                           G
once we went up there in December
      A                    D
when every waterslide and fudgeshop was closed

[INTERLUDE]
                              C                        G

[VERSE 4]

G
Hoping to feel love under the icicles
                 D                G
all we did was drink in an empty bar
      C                                     G
but stumbling drunk we crawled back to our motel room
       A                    D                  C   G
and I fell against you and felt your beating heart

[VERSE 5]

G
Snow was slowly falling on the ice machine
         D                           G
and the moon shone hazy through the pines
      C                                      G
but there were lounge chairs thrown into the empty pool
       A                     D 
and a dog chained to a tree barking at the sky
