VERSE (C=Cadd9)

D
the cross in the middle of the room

but the ghost who sleeps in the kitchen sink
                                    C
and the one who shines my shoes all put the money in a bag
             G
and left the house before the blizzards came

D
the summer's got his teeth in me again

but my bones are sweating and my clothes are gone

and i can't get enough to drink
           C                        G                    D
so now the place to be is where the moonlight never blinks
        C                            G                             D
and i'd love to explain but truth be told i'm not sure what to think
D
so now i'm going to bed

D
i woke up with my head stuffed full of fog

beyond it out into the livingroom

until i couldn't see the floors or walls
           C                         G                  D
and as the sun cut through i finally found a place to lay
D
the skeleton in my closet left his home

now he sits up on the rooftop and shouts my secrets with a megaphone
           C                            G                       D
and as the shit hit the fan i packed my bags and caught the train
        C                                    G                  D
and i'd like to point the finger but there's no one left to blame
            C               G                      D
now there's nothing left to protect me from the rain

and it's really coming down..


BACK TO INTRO then...


     D           G          Bm            A

|played throughout following:

D                               G
it's the thought that burns you out
         Bm                     A
it's the hook that drags you under
             D                  G
and it's the grin that rats you out
       Bm               A
it's a snowstorm in the summer
         D                   G
it's the sky that spoils the cloud
         Bm                 A
it's the burn marks on your mother
             D                      G
and it's the thought that burns you out
         Bm                  A
it's the hook that drags you under and so on..

D          Cadd9                               G
boring and twisting.. a moth stuck in the ground
           Cadd9          G
has made a house of your lightbulbs
D           Cadd9
mottled and crooked
  G             D
a hiccup in the sound
          Cadd9         G
is like a smudge on the tv
       Cadd9         G
like a crick in your neck
     Cadd9             G     D
like mistakes that you never regret


         Bm             A
it's the look upon your face
         D                 G
it's the rat that lost the race
         Bm              A
it's the shivers in your spine
         D                  G
it's the heart you'll never find
         Bm           A
it's the names in wet cement
         D                G
it's the things you can't forget
         Bm              A
it's the fear of growing old
         D                 G
it's the life you'll never know
         Bm                A
it's the scratches in your teeth
         D                 G
it's the time you left for weeks
         Bm                  A           D
it's the age when you didn't care, darling

D             Cadd9
cutthroat and ambling
    G                 D
the help that's never around
            Cadd9        G
just like a wish on your birthday
D         Cadd9
tired and empty
G                   D
attacks on what you found
          Cadd9   G
is like a spot on invention
       Cadd9       G
like a bug in your food
       Cadd9            G          D
like a thing that's too good to be true.. and so.


Outro - D Cadd9 G
