[Intro]
N.C.
Out on the curb again
N.C.
On the curb again
N.C.
I’ve come to learn it’s hard and firm
N.C.
Out on the curb again
N.C.
Out on the curb again
N.C.
On the curb again
N.C.
I’ve come to learn it’s hard and firm
N.C.
Out on the curb again


[Chorus]
                      Csus4
I’m in my room making cardboard castles
     C
With shoestring rope
Csus4
Soup spoon drawbridge
C
Tinfoil moat
Am                 G6              F   C
I’m still dreaming after all these years
                      Csus4
I’m in my room making cardboard castles
     C
With shoestring rope
Csus4
Soup spoon drawbridge
C
Tinfoil moat
Am                 G6              F   C
I’m still dreaming after all these years


[Verse 1]
           Csus4                       C
Because if we don’t build it who will?
                 Csus4                        C
I do things on a shoestring that you couldn’t do for a cool mil
Am                   G6    
  I run with no laces,    and when I fall, I start
F                            C
  To build my Taj Mahal with shit I found at Dollarmart
Csus4
  This life’s our greatest project
C
  The journey’s all an art
Csus4                         C
  But I built my perfect nest,  and it’s ‘bout to fall apart
Am                    G6    
  Again and again and then I just I make it twice as high
F                           C
  And I give my tower teeth,  and I watch it bite the sky
Csus4                         C
  Because I might just cry if I don’t keep it moving
  Csus4                        C
I focus on what I can make and not what just got ruined
       Am               G6              F                 C
‘Cause every stone will crumble down to dust, to dust, to dust
Csus4                         C
  And I say love thy neighbor,  and I say fuck thy hater
Csus4                                C
  There’s nothing I can’t solve with duct tape and construction paper
Am                             G6              F                C
  I don’t want a Band-Aid, I’ll    only rip it off, I’ll rip it off


[Bridge]
           Csus4   C
Out on the curb again
       Csus4   C
On the curb again
     Am                 G6    
I’ve come to learn it’s hard and firm
    F              C
Out on the curb again
(I’m in my room making cardboard castles)
           Csus4   C
Out on the curb again
(With shoestring rope)
       Csus4   C
On the curb again
(Soup spoon drawbridge, tinfoil moat)
     Am                 G6    
I’ve come to learn it’s hard and firm
(I’m still dreaming after all these)
    F              C
Out on the curb again
(years)


[Verse 2]
Csus4                      C
  I know someday I’ll pass,  and maybe then rest
Csus4
  I’m laying on my back;
C
  Heaven’s my bench press
Am                      G6    
  ‘Cause my imagination is crazy as Glenn Beck
F                           C
  A cloud is floating by in the shape of a rent check
Csus4                C
  And when the world ends, that’s what I’ll plan towards
Csus4                   C
  Then I’ll trust girlfriends and maybe landlords
Am                            G6    
  Cause I been played but I’m looking for more
      F                         C
I say,  "What would I gain if I took it to court?"
          Csus4                             C
‘Cause if    people were perfect then there wouldn’t be war
        Csus4                        C
We stay    pushing but once we get a foot in the door
           Am                     G6    
We get our toes chopped off and a foot of manure
        F
I still   gotta believe people
    C
Are good at the core
             Csus4
‘Cause if we weren’t, what’s at stake?
          C                        Csus4
Why would we stay to break what we make
                     C
And create all these beautiful mistakes
          Am                  G6                F                     C
When they blow our house down let’s draw on the walls, the walls, the walls


[Chorus]
                      Csus4
I’m in my room making cardboard castles
     C
With shoestring rope
Csus4
Soup spoon drawbridge
C
Tinfoil moat
Am                 G6              F   C
I’m still dreaming after all these years
                      Csus4
I’m in my room making cardboard castles
     C
With shoestring rope
Csus4
Soup spoon drawbridge
C
Tinfoil moat
Am                 G6              F   C
I’m still dreaming after all these years


[Bridge]
           Csus4   C
Out on the curb again
       Csus4   C
On the curb again
     Am                 G6    
I’ve come to learn it’s hard and firm
    F              C
Out on the curb again
           Csus4   C
Out on the curb again
       Csus4   C
On the curb again
     Am                 G6    
I’ve come to learn it’s hard and firm
    F              C
Out on the curb again


[Chorus]
                      Csus4
I’m in my room making cardboard castles
     C
With shoestring rope
Csus4
Soup spoon drawbridge
C
Tinfoil moat
Am                 G6              F   C
I’m still dreaming after all these years
                      Csus4
I’m in my room making cardboard castles
     C
With shoestring rope
Csus4
Soup spoon drawbridge
C
Tinfoil moat
Am                 G6              F   C   Csus4
I’m still dreaming after all these years
