Listen
[Verse 1]
A                      D
Foals in winter coats
                    Bm
White girls of the North
G                D
File past; one, five, and one
              D
They are the fabled lambs
    E
Of Sunday ham
     Bm
The ancient snow

[Verse 2]
                 A                   D
And they could float above the grass
                  A
In circles if they tried
   G               D
A latent power I know they hide
              D
To keep some hope alive
        E
That a girl like I
      Bm
Could ever try
            A
Could ever try

[Chorus 1]
   F#m       D                 E
So we just skirt the hallway sides
                F#m
A phantom and a fly
 F#         D
Follow the lines
                E
And wonder why
E
  There's no connection

[Verse 3]
   A                   D
A week of rolling eyes
                           Bm
And cheap shots from the tribe
           G                D
And we're off to Nemarca's porch again
        D
Another afternoon
        E
Of the goat-head tunes
     Bm
And pilfered booze
             A                      D
We wander through her Momma's house
                   A
The milk from the window lights
        G               D
Family portrait, circa '95
              D
This is that foreign land
             E
With the sprayed-on tans
       Bm
And it all feels fine
                A
Be it silk or slime

[Chorus 2]
F#m            D              E
So, when they tap our Monday heads
                           F#m
Two zombies walk in our stead
F#               D                    E
This town seems hardly worth our time
     F#m       D                  E
And we'll no longer memorize or rhyme
                    F#m
Too far along in our crime
         F#             D                E
Stepping over what now towers to the sky
E
  With no connection

[Bridge]
A      D      E
Oh, oh-oh, oh-ohh
A      D      E
Oh, oh-oh, oh-ohh
A      D      E
Oh, oh-oh, oh-ohh, ohh

[Chorus 3]
F#m            D              E
So, when they tap our Sunday heads
                         F#m
Two zombie walk in our stead
F#               D                     E
This town seems hardly worth our time
     F#m       D                  E
And we'll no longer memorize or rhyme
                    F#m
Too far along in our crime
         F#             D                E
Stepping over what now towers to the sky
E
  With no connection

[Outro]
A      D      E
Oh, oh-oh, oh-ohh
A      D      E
Oh, oh-oh, oh-ohh, ohh
A      D      E
Oh, oh-oh, oh-ohh
A      D      E
Oh, oh-oh, oh-ohh, ohh
A      D      E
Oh, oh-oh, oh-ohh
A      D      E
Oh, oh-oh, oh-ohh, ohh

the chords are 100%. here are the lyrics written in the sleevenotes:

Frozen in winter coats,
White girls of the North,
File past one five and one
They are the fabled lambs,
Of Sunday ham,
The EHS norm
And they can float above the grass,
In circles if they tried,
A latent power I know they hide,
To keep some hope alive,
That a girl like I could ever try,
Could ever try.

So we just skirt the hallway signs,
A phantom and a fly,
Follow the lines and wonder why
There's no connection.

A week of rolling eyes falling eyes,
And cheap shots from the trite,
And we're off to Nemarca’s porch again,
Another afternoon with the goat head tunes,
And pilfered booze.
We wandered through her mama's house,
The milk from a window lights,
Family portrait circa ninety-five,
This is that foreign land,
With the sprayed on tans,
And it all feels fine,
Be it silk or slime

So, when they tap our Monday heads,
Two zombies walk in our stead,
This town seems hardly worth our time,
And we'll no longer memorize or rhyme,
To fall along in our climb,
Stepping over what now towers to the sky,
With no connection.

So, when they tap our Sunday heads,
Two zombies walk in our stead,
This town seems hardly worth our time,
And we'll no longer memorize or rhyme,
To fall along in our climb,
Stepping over what now towers to the sky
With no connection.
