G
This one is for you
    Bm             C
and it goes on and on and on
     G
when nothing seems to do
    Bm                         C
for when the doubtless and the wrong
G
ask; 'can I help you?'
        Bm                 C
in that way that says, 'I can't'
    G
or claim we're all the same
       Bm         C
just inconsistant
   Bm
or pretend all understanding
       C
turned out to be pretense
        D                                  C
then pretend the pretense of understanding
                              Bm
How long does it take depends

You can cast your doubts
C
Turn em inside-out
D                    C
Hang em upside-down

                    G    D                      Bm             C
Til their art falls out  -  the short answer's; forty-eight hours
Let your heart all out   -  the short answer's; forty-eight hours
Til your art falls out   -  the short answer's; forty-eight hours
Let your heart all out                     Summon up all your power
C     C

G G Bm C (X2)

G 
If you need a good connection for drugs
     Bm                   C
or a strong tolerance for alcohol
G
Too little religious education
Bm     C
       Some pain threshold
G
If from the outside
           Bm                  C
There's no demand for what you do
    G
And inside there's an army waiting
          Bm              C
For their marching orders for you
Bm
Come sit on my swing-set
C
Come sit on my porch
      D 
After Ten at night, smoke your cigarettes
       C               Bm
if you like, of course

You can cast your doubts
C
Turn em inside-out
D                     C
Hang em upside-down

                    G    D                      Bm             C
Til their art falls out  -  the short answer's; forty-eight hours
Let your heart all out   -  the short answer's; forty-eight hours
Til your art falls out   -  the short answer's; forty-eight hours
Let your heart all out                           Summon up all your power
C     C
      And it does on and on and on

B E(X7)
B  E                  B    E
    If we ever get home
    let's don't compare
    let's relinquish all our holidays
    and Drive-In Premieres     B    E
C  D                 C
   if we ever get home
   gonna have me three children
Apple, Zippo, and Metronome
that's what I'm gonna name them

        B  E
and get celebrity skin
B   E                  B   E
    the illusion of tough
    I'm gonna talk about nothing
    til nothing's enough    B   E
C  D                 C
   if we ever get home
   and the subject comes up
this War isn't for children
War is nothing's enough
G                                Bm     C
O' in the clouds of blood at the end of JAWS
G                                    Bm    C
in the misted cars honking their applause
G                      Bm C
at the Drive-In Double Feature
G                           Bm  C
at the heart of dark enough
         G                  Bm C
O' it's JAWS and The Dark Canuck
G                             Bm C
should we stay for The Dark Canuck?
    G                    Bm  C
yea.Everyone, hands up!?
      G                      Bm  C
Who's for 'The Dark Canuck'?
C                          C
I think we relinquished enough
     G                    Bm  C
and it's still dark enough
and it goes on and on and on
