               Am
and you're down
          F
for the count
           Am
you are dancing with men
         F
going round and around
               Am
and you're scared
               F
and you're sure
              Am
that your spine will dissolve
            F
you will fall to the floor
           Am
you will take
              F
what you need
             Am
and the headaches will come
          F
but at least you can breathe
         Am
as the smoke
            F
fills your lungs
          Am
we will wait for the day
          F
we'll rejoice when it comes


           C
on your birthday
      G
you woke up
      Am                    F
the snow was on the ground
      C                        G
you opened books and peeked inside
       Am                       F
they kissed you on your crown
       C              G
with pins in your fingers
      Am                  F
you held yourself up high
      C                       G
the picture peeled the person
       Am                 F
they let themselves divide


     Am
you arrive
         F
at the place
      Am
it is not what you want
        F
but it is what you chase
          Am
so you don't
           F
have to hold
Am
all of the candles
       F
that burn on their own
           Am
you will steal
          F
all the smells
       Am                                  F
that cut through your nose and inside on your cells
             Am
when it's time
      F
to escape
       Am                          F
you realize you've waited until it's too late


            C
but your birthday
G
inflated
     Am                          F
the bones with which you creak
       C                           F
they stole your shoes and brought you to
      Am                  F
the caverns of their teeth
      C
you pleaded
    G
oh kind sir
          Am                F
please let me say goodbye
       C                           G
your soul ripped from your stomach
      Am                F
you gave an awful cry
F
A cry
F
A cry
F
A cry

       C     G        F
and when I have died
C          G        F
will you use my spine
    C              G        F
to swing from tree to tree in search of
C          G       F
places pleasing to the eye?


       C     G        F
and when I have died
C          G        F
will you use my spine
    C              G        F
to swing from tree to tree in search of
C          G       F
places pleasing to the eye?


       C     G        F
and when I have died
C          G        F
will you use my spine
    C              G        F
to swing from tree to tree in search of
C          G       F
places pleasing to the eye?

C  G       
I said

I'm sorry dear

I said
Am F
I'm sorry dear
            C             G        Am       F
but you don't listen
          C               G

you silly little girl

I realize now I made a couple small errors:

In the chorus there is an "F" that should be a "G". The chorus has the same pattern over and over so it's pretty obvious.

The "when I have died" part is actually C G Am not C G F. Either works, but I think Am sounds better.
