The other tab on here is for an earlier version, this is the version on the Ferris Wheel on Fire EP.

G
Oh sister, don't be afraid of me
I won't be nailing you down in the nursery
C
Just like the rest of them did
With those watery, wandering fingers that slipped
                         G              C G
That were supposed to be glorious and fine

G
Oh sister, won't you believe in me
I only wanted to be hard on the family
C
Here with you now in this silly infirmary
Your mother makes frantic and drunk calls from Germany
G           C G
All of the time

G
Oh sister, sweet brown and beulahry
And milk from your blisters on your grandmother's jewelry
C
there in the parlor all naked in front of me
                                                   
Watching the lights from the cracks 
               G         C  G
Making archery animal designs

Em                            C
Rose Wallace Goldeline just moves her mouth over anything
G                                 D
With fleshy free and flowering like oranges out in the open
Em
But don't you waste your sins again
C
She don't need you
or won't fuck your friends
G                              D
And you, you're American self important boiling over
Em
To prove that she must still exist
C
she moves herself about her fist
G
and won't ever never give a shit
D
about all those words you're wasting 
Em               C                    G
To gain some pretty bright and bubbly wondrous dream
              D
You'd like to kill and cling
And claim her as your own
Em
But don't you worry
C                       G                 
All those dainty and dirty emotions 
      D
just go away and fade out on their own
G
Sister, now that you're leaving
Our fingers will falter
Our lungs will be leaking
C
All over each other and without even speaking
We'll know that it's over and smiling or greeting
G                C G
Whatever comes next

G
And oh sister
You're getting married with some angry twister
                                 C
That you'll have to carry home drunk every evening from the cemetery
And if he makes it back half alive you can bury him
G             C  G
Under your sheets

G
And oh sister
now that you're greaving
I can not imagine there is any meaning
C
forgetting you ever could once had the feeling that made you keep on
                                  G            C  G
and pretend you were breathing of all of this world
In an age of empty rings
D                        C
I don't want to feel a thing
                      G        C  G
I don't even want to know

                       D
and Rose Wallace Goldeline
                      C
don't you ever die on me
                           G
Don't you own the way you go

But, he definitely says "I only wanted to be hard on THE family". He also says "about all those words you're wasting again TO GAIN some pretty, bright and bubbly".

Cross out the "again", I think he says "to gain" instead.
