Intro-

C
N Am
C
N Am E

  C
I've yet to see much evidence
                  N
I remain a little unconvinced
    Am                            Bm
My best is really good enough, or if it's good at all

  C
Colors come and colors go
                  N
My portrait isn't much to show
     Am                               D              E
I'm not the most notable piece that's hanging on the wall

C
N Am
C
N Am E

C
Gather children, have no fear
                   N
The pyramids we've piled here
      Am                      Bm
Some day far from now will be covered up in moss

  C
I tread upon this barren ground 
                    N
There's not an echo to be found
             Am                            D                E
Through this murky world I wander, and rest assured I'm lost.
        C                            G              Am
I'm not looking for an exit, I'm not looking for an answer
    Am            D                G
I'm looking for a spot to plant my flag


           C      
Maybe on a hill that's covered in lavender
      A
Where old family pets have been buried
   F
We swipe at the passing pigeons to catch and
Gm
Release with letters home to carry
      C
Where nobody's ever that hesitant
   A
To split a cab with a stranger
            F
Where those orcas and orangutans
     Gm
were never in any danger
   C
Mosquitos suck out your cholesterol
A
Beavers build homes for the homeless
      F
Where kids don't play with matches
      Gm
And adults don't play with politics
   C
We form our futures from paper machete 
    A
And change them as we see fit 
     F
your surplus time is stored away
    Gm
for when you really need it
      C
Where hate tastes like god damn cherries
          A
And we've already ate it all gone
C                    F
People will pass and tears will be shed 
C                         Gm
but we mop up and then we move on

                                 C   
Listen closely because there are echoes
                 N         Am
of the long lost folk who cared
                     C           N            Am
Every one of us is a dot, in the line, on the map
                            Bm
That's gradually leading us there
                                 C
So next time you're crippled and bitter
        N              Am
And you feel unbearably alone
                  C         N       Am
It seems like the walls are closing in,
                      F   Gm   C
Maybe it's only cause you have grown

C   N   Am
F   Gm   C
