(Intro)  

Em


(Verse)

         Em                       Am
Bring me birds with broken wings, Men with all the answers,
B                              Em
People who have killed,Give me incurable cancers.
          Em                             Am
Bring me beaches slicked in oil, Give me disregard for doubt,
B                                         Em
Street lights shine on broken Roads where no one is about.
             Em                        Am
I want that hopeless green depression, Punishments without a cause,
         B                      Em
Give me impotent obsession, And disregard for laws.
           Em                               Am 
I want the trees in single file, Bring the corpse of something rare,
        B                                 Em
Show me children who are sinners, Show me mounds of human hair.


(Chorus)

Am                               Em
I climbed up the mountain just to kill my son,
Am                           Em
An angel tried to stop me with a ram,
             Am                                 Em
Well he said “your mind’s infected”, But I said “you lack perspective”,
B
You gotta walk the bottom if you wanna see the top,


Em                 Am           B              Em
La da da da, La da da da, La da da da da da da da da da  
Em                 Am           B              Em
La da da da, La da da da, La da da da da da da da da da  



(Verse)

        Em                    Am
Give me poison I can swim in, Water I can’t drink,
 B                                        Em
Wheels that won’t stop spinning, Teach my children not to think.
            Em                                     Am
I want the fruit that tastes like nothing, extra thumbs for every crook,
         B                                Em
Give me lessons without questions, a mild disdain for books.
       Em                    Am
Give me metaphors unraveled, Poetry defined,
            B                             Em
Bring me the head of Dionysius, But please don’t spill out the wine.
         Em                                Am
Trade the future for the present, Trade me ashes for my history,
        B                              Em
I don’t need to look inside,I know the answer to the mystery.

(Chorus)

Am                               Em
I climbed up the mountain just to kill my son,
Am                           Em
An angel tried to stop me with a ram,
             Am                                 Em
Well he said “your mind’s infected”, But I said “you lack perspective”,
B

Em                 Am           B              Em
La da da da, La da da da, La da da da da da da da da da  
Em                 Am           B              Em
La da da da, La da da da, La da da da da da da da da da  


(Bridge)

C                      Em
Oh I know they call me crazy,
C                      Em
But there will be no turning back,
Am                     Em
I don’t care if things get ugly.
B
Once the word of god is spoken,
B
There’s no way to take it back,

You gotta walk the bottom if you wanna see the top,

Corrections to lyrics. Hopefully it is obvious where they go.
Bring me beaches slicked in oil
I want that hopeless green depression
Extra thumbs for every crook
a mild disdain for books
