Verse 1:
          D          G               A           
Well the rain falls down without my help I'm afraid
        D         G                    A          
and my lawn gets wet though I've withheld my consent
            D          G              Gm
when this grey world crumbles like a cake
          D               Bm
I'll be hanging from the hope
            G             E        A  
that I'll never see that recipe again

Verse 2:
    D       G             A       
As I walk I think about a new way to walk
      D        G            A       
as I think I'm using up the time left to think
          D          G               Gm    
and this train keeps rolling off the track
          D         Bm
trying to act like something else
             G          E    A  
trying to go where it's been uninvited

Chorus:
             D                     
It's not my birthday, it's not today
             D                       A           
it's not my birthday so why do you lunge out at me
          D          Am          Em            A
when the word comes down "Never more will be around"
        D                  C           D                  G
though I'll wish we were there, I was less than we could bear
        Em            G               A    
and I'm not the only dust my mother raised

Bridge:
         D                            D7              
So I'm rattling the bars around this drink tank discreetly
          G                            E           A  
I should pour through the keyhole or evaporate completely
            D                            D7
but there'd be no percentage and there'd be no proof
          G                           E       A
and the sound upon the roof is only water

Verse 3:
          D          G               A           
Well the rain falls down without my help I'm afraid
        D         G                    A          
and my lawn gets wet though I've withheld my consent
            D          G              Gm
when this grey world crumbles like a cake
          D               Bm
I'll be hanging from the hope
            G             E        A  
that I'll never see that recipe again

Chorus:
             D                     
It's not my birthday, it's not today
             D                       A           
it's not my birthday so why do you lunge out at me
          D          Am          Em            A
when the word comes down "Never more will be around"
        D                  C           D                  G
though I'll wish we were there, I was less than we could bear
        Em            G               A    
and I'm not the only dust my mother raised
        Em            G               A 
I am not the only dust my mother raised
