Take your canvas bags, take your canvas bags,
Take your canvas bags, to the supermarket.
C#                A
Take your canvas bags.

[Back to original chord structure]

Nothings right I'm torn,
I'm all out of faith,
this is how I feel,
I'm cold and I am shamed,
lying naked on the floor.
Illusion never changed,
into something real,
                   A                         E
I'm wide awake and I can see I'm more than a bird,
I'm more than a plane,
      C#         A
I'm a bird-plane,
      E          B
I'm a bird-plane,
                 C#          A
A mother fucking bird-plane.
Doesn't that sound familiar,
doesn't that sound too close to home
doesn't that make you shiver,
the way things could have gone.
And doesn't that seem peculiar,
'cause everyone wants a little more,
there's something I do remember,
to never go this far,
thats all it takes to be a star.
