similar during Bm Am G Em / Em G Em progession and between verses
(Probably the positions of the chord are not correct. So are the chords themselves, I cannot decide
clearly whether minor or major, that was guesswork. But it would be sufficient to play the basic
notes most of the time, not at D Em.)


[Verse 1]

Bm        Am         G        Em
Won't you lend your lungs to me?
Em    G   Em
Mine are collapsing
Em       Am         G       Em
Plant my feet and bitterly breathe
Em       G         Em
up the time that's passing.
D           E                   D
Breath I'll take and breath I'll give
D            E            D
pray the day ain't poison
Bm      Am         G       Em
stand among the ones that live
Em        G     Em
in lonely indecision.

[Instrumental]

Bm Am G Em


[Verse 2]
(same chords progression)

Fingers walk the darkness down
mind is on the midnight
gather up the gold you've found
you fool, it's only moonlight.
If you try to take it home
your hands will turn to butter
You better leave this dream alone
try to find another.

Salvation sat and crossed herself
called the devil partner
wisdom burned upon a shelf
who'll kill the raging cancer
Seal the river at its mouth
take the water prisoner
fill the sky with screams and cries
bathe in fiery answers


[Verse 3]
(same chords progression)

[Instrumental/Slide Guitar]

Jesus was an only son
and love his only concept
strangers cry in foreign tongues
and dirty up the doorstep
and I for one, and you for two
ai'nt got the time for outside
just keep your injured looks to you
we'll tell the world we tried

I am sorry, but the chords are wrong. They are actually just Em and D. The Intro is ok though.
