E
You've got beet blood in your mouth and lies in your artichoked heart 
A                 C                D
youíre black eyes stalking through me 
E
with a birdcage for ribs, that vultures trying to get out 
A                    C      D
itís scratching your kidney wings
E 
weíre no longer feeding ourselves, the raccoons are eating our dreams 
A                                            C                       D
pushing past our feeblery to keep them out, this morning I heard one sing: 
C                                      C
there's a whole big world out there my son, be careful don't believe them. 
D                                          D
there's a crazy old lady in the sun, she's angry can't you feel it? 
C                      C                C    C     C    C
if you donít work hard youíre no son of mine, well Iíve earned these riverbeds 
D                     D                  D        D    D      D
& Iíll drown you out until youíve made me proud if you wonít learn youíre better off dead.
E 
so, Iím digging in this farm yard trying to find the seeds 
A                                         C              D
forgetting all I have left in this world of course that includes me 
E
so Iím building and Iím learning and leaving nothing unsaid 
A                       C                            D
all I am is all I have, Iíll take this garden for my bed 
E
and these are not just words built like a city of dreams, we have no use for this kingdom
A                                            C               D 
Iím proud of you my friends, may your lives be a symphony of freedom 

C                             D
I don't want to live forever. I just want to live for now 
E
but the angel on my doorstep keeps pointing me towards that plow 
C                                     D
so Iím digging in with both my hands, keeping one eye on the door 
E
If I go looking Iíll probably find it, ...and get all Iíve been asking for 

C                             D
I don't want to live forever. I just want to live for me 
E
but your faces just keep haunting ...sometimes itís all I see 
C                                     D
so Iím working hard at learning all I can Iím gonna give it all to you 
E
Iíll keep making payments, until weíre all so straight and true 

E
I want to paint seeds together, and follow you right up to the edge 
A                                             C                D
filled up and spilling like carried cups, and watch the sun go red 
E
but thereís poison right here in our water, and a shark somewhere in the well 
A                                               C                    D
I wanna show you my life, show me your life and tell me itís not the devil 
A                          Slide up to 10th fret
I guess I I feel the way I feel, you make me feel like IĎm alive... 
A                   Slide up to 10th fret
and Iím alive, am I alive, i am alive so you can live... 
A                 Slide up to 10th fret
please come and live, why donít you live, you can live inside of me... 
A                 Slide up to 10th fret
thereís a home for you inside me, inside of me there is a fire 
C                                          D
inside my fire, there is more fire, and in that fire there is truth 

Chord Progression repeats throughout slows down at "it's the beauty..."

but we take our furnace-chests, and run em neck deep into that lake 
and let the coals stare us down, one last glare of doubt & hate 
but we were wrong, no I was wrong, weíll just be wrong about some things 
and it will never be, it can never be, it should never be this easy 
to wash away the fire that burns, we wash away our flame 
my eyes saw fire, my heart said escape 
i said my eyes saw fire, my heart did escape 
itís the beauty in the struggle has me going keeps me shook 
sometimes I can see it in your face God but not in the pages of a book 
and there's something in your eye that's asking 
I got no answers, just clues for a path to truth 
I thought it was you. but yeah, I thought it was me too. 

I don't want to live forever. I just want to live for us 
but the head on my shoulders keeps driving me to be careless 
our brains donít want to listen, ears squinting for some honesty 
itís gets slippery here, hold on....we are not ourselves probably 

I don't want to live forever. I just want to live for you 
but the devil round my doorway keeps singing me something new 
so Iím listening with idle hands cupped tight around both ears 
my minds open like a burned down house, I havenít died at all this year
