first verse is the intro repeated

A
The bricks get laid,
and they get torn up,
and laid again,
                C#m
but the bricks always get torn up again.

A
Your friends won't wait,
so don't believe that shit,
when they say they'll wait.
                C#m
Trust me; your friends will not wait for you.

C#m - B - A

                A             B7
Then you'll be stoned in some park,
                   C#m                     E
just nodding your head and pinching your arms,
                    A
when a girl walks along.
                    B7
She's humming your song,
                C#m
with your t-shirt on.
                    E
That's when you're done,
                          A2
Oh, that's when you're done...

A2-B2-A

A
There's a cotton crush
A
down in the southern states.
A
But back up here, man, we've got
         C#m
so much thread and space
to waste, waste, waste.

C#m - B - A

A
There's a microphone
picking every word up
and it shuts itself off
                           C#m
when it's sure that's its heard enough.....

          B      A
The quiet can scrape
                        B
all the calm from your bones,
               C#m
but maybe it should.
                     E
Maybe we need to be hollowed
                  A
to get up and grow,
                   B
and stop fucking around,
                 C#m                            E
to kick off our braces and start straightening out.
                       A
Let's sift through the static
                   B
to find a simpler sound
                        C#m
Let's sift through the static
                   E
to find a simpler sound...
           A                B
A simpler sound, a simpler sound
         C#m                          E                  A
simpler sound than the shit that's clouding our heads now

A - B7 - C#m - E
