Amanda Palmer -- "Bigger on the Inside" Use the third fret on the B string for accents if you would like. G C A C G You’d think I’d shot their children C From the way that they are talking A And there’s no point in responding C ‘Cause it will not make them stop. G And I am tired of explaining C And of seeing so much hating A In the very same safe havens C Where I used to just see helping G I’ve been drunk and skipping dinner C Eating skin from off my fingers A And I tried to call my brother C But he no longer exists G I keep forgetting to remember C That he would have been much prouder A If he saw me shake these insults off C Instead of getting bitter A I am bigger on the inside C But you have to come inside to see me A Otherwise you’re only hating G Other people’s low-res copies G G You’d think I’d learn my lesson C From the way they keep on testing A My capacity for pain C And my resolve to not get violent G But though my skin is thickened C Certain spots can still be got in A It is typically human of me C Thinking I am different G To friends hooked up to hospital C Machines, two kinds of cancer A And there is no better place than from this C Waiting room to answer G The French kid who wrote an e-mail C To the website late last night A His father raped him and he’s scared C He asked me “How do you keep fighting?" G And the truth is I don’t know C I think it’s funny that he asked me A ‘Cause I don’t feel like a fighter lately C I am too unhappy A You are bigger on the inside C But your father cannot see A You need to tell someone, be strong G And somewhere some dumb rockstar truly loves you. G G You’d think I’d get perspective C From my few years by the bedside A It is difficult to see the ones I C Love so close to death G All their infections and procedures C And the will to live at all in question A Can I not accept that my own C Problems are so small? G You took my hand when you woke up C I had been crying in the darkness A We all die alone but I am so, so C glad that you are here A You whispered “We are so much bigger on the C inside, you, me, everybody A Some day when you’re lying where I G am, you’ll finally get it truly" A We are so much bigger C Than another one can ever see A Trying is the point of life G So don’t stop trying Promise me.
