Lake Geneva
From the album Milk And Scissors

[INTRO]

E

[VERSE 1]

          E
You are crouched before the fire 
      F#m
in a state park by the highway 
       B
and through the heavy pine trees 
          A                E
ten-ton trucks go groaning by

[VERSE 2]

            E
Like the screams of your Aunt Barbara 
          F#m
who went crazy in the 70's
       B
wrote poems to Jimmy Carter 
        A               E
but forgot to feed her kids

[CHORUS]

              G#
But it's the first time you're together 
          A              E
since he got out of the hospital
G#
Raccoons in the darkness 
      A               B
drag off your hotdog buns

[VERSE 3]

             E
But, you're happy just to lie there 
         F#m
in your plastic tent from Wal-Mart 
       B
like sticks and fallen dead leaves 
             A           E
to feed the fire of the world

[INTERLUDE]

     E        F#m               B                A         E

[VERSE 4]

      E
But which is more important, 
   F#m
to comfort an old woman 
        B
or see visions of the heavens 
         A                E
in the stumps of fallen trees?

[CHORUS]

G# 
Albert Einstein trembled 
         A                 E
when he saw that time was water, 
G#
seeping through the rafters 
        A                B
to put out this burning world

[INTERLUDE]

    E          F#m             B                  A      E

[VERSE 5]

      E
Next morning you're at Waffle House
 F#m
Toast and eggs and hash browns
  B
Truckers chain-smoke Camels 
       A              E
over plastic cups of juice

[CHORUS]

          G#
And you remember how he cried 
             A                   E
when they strapped him to the stretcher, 
   G# 
convinced his arms were burning 
           A           E
with electricity from heaven
       G#
You remember how he told you 
       A                    E
that black holes were like Jesus
          G#
And the crucifix was a battery 
      A                   B
that filled the air with fire

E
