Verse I:


Am                                                   C
A bright-night-kitchen moth and the washcloth that I use
C#      D(no5)
For the refuse
        Fmaj7                 Em
That is littering all of your clues
Am                         C                        C#       D(no5)
Orion is dead and gone but something in it still be-longs to me
    Fmaj7          Em
The bright night I see
Am
High hot-time all the braggarts drag
      C                      C#
Their boats down to the water
D(no5)
She dragged down to drown each and every
Fmaj7              Em
Brown rag I bought her
Am
The silverfish they ditch their skins as
    C                     C#
The Saturday air raid beg-ins
D(no5)
Pitching exoskeletons
Fmaj7              Em
Revolting in their molting
Am
Dont you know Im just like that?
C                             C#
You can tell where Ive been at
D(no5)
On every doormat I have sat
  Fmaj7       Em
A relic so an-gelic
Dm
Oh the once hard-biting night
    D                               Fmaj7 Em
Now ruthlessly a toothless sight to see


Verse II:


Am                                           C
A shot down Telegraph with a hot laugh as we cruise
C#          D(no5)
Through the sinews
Fmaj7                  Em
Connecting all of your clues
Am
The blinds they clap for the
            C
The napping overheated tangles
D
Daytime may climb high until the dusk sucks out

All that it mangles
Am
Melting with the blacktop moms
     C                      C#
On a bed of palms and psalms
D
Immersed in the universe
   Fmaj7              Em
Of off-ramp proms and sitcoms
Dm
Sylvan Lake and in between
D                          Fmaj7
Perpetually like Halloween
      Em
I saw you
Am                                C
In the dormitory with the warming glory
              C#
Of the harvest
D
The pilings of the night are whiling out
            Fmaj7         Em
Where their forms are the largest


Bridge:

F
Feeling about half as vicious
Em                      A
As all the silverfishes crawl
F
If I truly am a coward
Em
Memory-fueled and fear-powered
A  (A) A/C#
Ill be damned


    F    Em
But if I were
     C        D
That gorgeous blur
Dm  Em
Id  be
Am
Sure

Verse III:


Am                                                   C
A bright-night-kitchen moth and the washcloth that I use
C#      D(no5)
For the refuse
        Fmaj7                 Em
That is littering all of your clues


Am
Tripped up on the alley-weed
C                           C#
Through which I elbowed and kneed
    D
The bottle of my beer emptied
    Fmaj7          Em
And I was warm and fluid
Am
The body is a bottle, I guess
C                              C#
That I would like to throttle, yes
D
Mottled skin and spilling sin
      Fmaj7       Em
And a holiness so stupid
    Dm
The heaven that I long to see
    D
The undone linearity
    Fmaj7 Em
Ive pro-  ven
Dm
Is all the love Ive tried to show
D
Buried where those buildings glow
    Fmaj7  Em (Riff)
And ruined?


Am(let ring)
