Album: Flood ('1990)

Verse 1:
E              A       B         E           A     B
I  returned a  bag of  groceries accidently  taken off the
E                 A   B      E
shelf before the  expiration date
E                A      B         E            A     B
I came back as a bag of groceries accident-ly  taken off the
E                 A         B       E       E7
shelf before the  date stamped on myself

Chorus:
A                 F#m
  did a large  procession wave their torches as my head fell in the
A              F#m         B              B7
basket and was everybody   dancing on the casket
E                  A                  B
now it's over  I'm dead and I haven't done anything that I want or I'm
E                       A         B       E       B7
still alive and there's nothing I want to do

Verse 2:
I will never say the word procrastenate again
I'll never see myself in the mirror with my eyes closed
I didn't apologize for when I was eight and I made my 
Younger brother have to be my personal slave

Chorus:
did a large  procession wave their torches as my head fell in the
Basket? and was everybody dancing on the casket
Now it's over I'm Dead and I haven't done anything that I want or I'm
Still alive and there's nothing I want to do

Bridge:
E            A            E        A
So I  won't  sit at home  anymore  and you won't
E               A             E             A
See my head in  the win- dow  and I  won't  be around
E         A                E               A           B        B7
Ever   anymore and I'll be up there on the wall at the store 

Verse 1:
I  returned a  bag of  groceries accidently  taken off the
shelf before the  expiration date
I came back as a bag of groceries accident-ly  taken off the
shelf before the  date stamped on myself

Chorus:
did a large  procession wave their torches as my head fell in the
Basket? and was everybody dancing on the casket
Now it's over I'm Dead and I haven't done anything that I want or I'm
Still alive and there's nothing I want to do
Now it's over I'm Dead and I haven't done anything that I want or I'm
Still alive and there's nothing I want to do

nice, but one tiny correction. I think it sounds better in the chorus if you do


E A B E A B
now it's over I'm dead and I haven't done anything that I want or I'm
