[Intro]

C  C  Em  Am
F  F  G   Em

[Main Riff is played along with the chords,looped twice
 to fit chord progression]


[Verse 1]

C               C
    I'll be the grapes fermented,
 Em                         Am               F
Bottled and served with the table set in my finest suit
       F
Like a perfect gentlemen

C               C
    I'll be the fire escape that's
Em            Am                   F
bolted to the ancient brick Where you will sit
    F
and contemplate your day


[Main Riff] 
(reprise)


C  C  Em  Am
F  F  G   Em

[Main Riff is played along with the chords,looped twice
 to fit chord progression]


[Verse 2]

C               C
    I'll be the waterwings that
Em                    Am              F
save you if you start drowning In an open tab when
     F
your judgement's on the brink

C               C
    I'll be the phonograph that
Em                  Am                   F
plays your favorite Albums back as your lying there
F                  G     Em
drifting off to sleep... Drifting off to sleep...

C               C
    I'll be the platform shoes and
 Em                  Am                        F
undo what heredity's done to you... You won't have to strain
   F
to look into my eyes

C                C
    I'll be your winter coat
Em                           Am                       F
buttoned and zipped straight to the throat With the collar up so
F
you won't catch a cold

Am    Am               F            F               C
    I want to take you far from the cynics in this town
    C                Am
And kiss you on the mouth
      Am             F             F                C
We'll cut out bodies free from the tethers of this scene,
        C              Am
Start a brand new colony
       Am                F          F                   C
Where everything will change, We'll give ourselves new names
 C           Am
identities erased
    Am                F       F              C
The sun will heat the grounds Under our bare feet in this
C                G      G
brand new colony,  this brand new colony
