When all that's left to do
Is reflect on what's been done
This is where sadness breathes
The sadness of everyone

Just like when the guys
Built the dam at Otter Creek
And all the water backed up
Deep enough to dive

We took the dead man in sheets
To the river flanked by love
Deep enough to dive

Be here now

We took him there and three
In a stretcher made from trees
That had passed in the storm
Leave the hearse behind
To leave the curse behind

Be here now

Bridge:  | Em   G |


Selling The Drama
-----------------
(intro is a 1/2 step bend on second fret, 5th string [A])

G      D         G
And to love... a god
       D         Em
And to fear... a flame
       Bm7    C
And to burn a crowd that has a name


And to right or wrong
And to meek or strong
It is known just scream it from the wall


D
I've willed, I've walked, I've read
I've talked, I know, I know
I've been here before

Em  A               Em
Hey now we won't be raped
   A                Em
Hey now we won't be scarred like that
Em  A               Em
Hey now we won't be raped
   A                C
Hey now we won't be scarred like that...

It's the sun that burns
It's the wheel that turns
It's the way we sing that makes 'em dream

And to Christ... a cross
And to me... a chair
I will sit and earn the ransome from up here

I've willed...


Bridge:  | D  Em  Bm7  C |


I Alone
-------

     G      D         C     Cmaj7
It's easier not to be wise
Measure these things by your brains
I sank into Eden with you
Alone in the church by and by
I'll read to you love save your eyes
You'll need them your boat is at sea
Your anchor is up, you've been swept away
And the greatest of teachers won't hesitate

   B
To leave you there by yourself chained to fate

E  B    G
I alone love you
I alone tempt you
I alone love you
A
Fear is not the end of this...

It's easier not to be great
And measure these things by your eyes
We long to be here by his resolve
Alone in the church by and by
To cradle the baby in space
To leave you there by yourself chained to fate

I alone...

B
Oh now we took it back too far
Only love can save us now
All these riddles that you burn
All come running back to you
All these rhythms that you hide
Only love can save us now
All these riddles that you burn
yeah yeah yeah


Iris
----
C#m
I liked the way my hand looked on your head
       F#
In the presence of my knuckles
        C#m
But the beauty of this vision alone
Just like yesterday's sunset
            F#
Has been perverted by the sentimental
And mistaken for love
    E                               F#
The felix of your truth will always break it
And the iris of your eye will always shake it
And the armies, the armies I have created
            A    
Will always hate it
            B    
Will always bait you on

I liked the way my hand looked on your head
In the presence of my struggle
But the beauty of this vision alone
I can't shake from my tree just yet
It keeps invading all my private moments
Listen to me now

F#               B      F#
Do not see their flags
Do not see their flags
                 E    
Do not see their flags
                 A
Do not see their flags
               E
Deep inside my head
                 A
Do not see their flags


Lightning Crashes
-----------------
F         C                    G
Lightning crashes a new mother cries
Her placenta falls to the floor
The angel opens her eyes
The confusion sets in
Before the doctor can even close the door

Lightning crashes an old mother dies
Her intentions fall to the floor
The angel closes her eyes
The confusion that was hers
Belongs now to the baby down the hall


Oh now feel it coming back again
Like the rolling thunder chasing the wind
Forces pulling from the center of the earth again
I can feel it

Lightning crashes a new mother cries
This moment she's been waiting for
The angel opens her eyes
Pale blue colored iris
Presents the circle
And puts the glory out to hide

Am          F
This is not helping me at all
What are you doing here
In the name of God and Love
It's the distribution of fear
Pyramids, healing wines, analysts with fame
I haven't got your degree
And I forgot your name

C              Dm
Pick me up put me on the ground
C                  Dm
Set me up and spin me all around
   F               Am  F         Am (intro thing)
No you are not the one I wish to see

This is not helping me at all
Where did we get this plan?
That you could give to me
What I might already have
Pyramids, healing wines, a musician's fame
I volunteered you my eyes
In place of facing me

Pick me up...

Am  G
        Oh Hitler in a robe of truth
Am  G
        My emptiness has built your alter
Am  G                                    F
        And I've worshiped myself in you forever
Until now...


All Over You
------------

G  F#m  Bm  A  D

D          A
Our love is like water
F#m             G
Pinned down and abused
    A     D 
For being strange
           A         F#m
Our love is no other
        G
Than me alone
    A      D
For me all day
           F#m
Our love is like water (angels)
F#m             G       A
pinned down and abused


(intro riff progression)
All over you
All over me
The sun, the fields, the sky
I've often tried to hold the sea
The sun, the fields, the tide
Pay me now, lay me down


Bridge:  ]: E  G  F#m  G  F#m :[

Shit Towne
----------
    G            A                  Bm  (Bsus2)
The Weavers live up the street from me
The Crackheads, they live down the street from me
The tall grass makes it hard to see
Beyond my property
Hey man this is criminal
This hard line symmetry of people and pets
F               D
We don't bother anyone
   F          D
We keep to ourselves
    F              D             C
The mailman visits each of us in turn

We don't bother anyone
We keep to ourselves
The mailman visits each of us in time

G           A                 Bm
Gotta live, gotta live, gotta live in shit towne
G           A                 Bm
Gotta live, gotta live, gotta live in our town. (2x)

E       Bm  A
  Do me wrong
E       Bm  A
  Do me wrong
E       Bm           A
  Do me wrong, don't hold me back

   Em                        A   

In the moment I was losing my head
Readin' too much and losing my head
And I was
Reaching forward I was already there
Readin' too much and losing my head
This information caused a cut in the line
Now I'm remembering God and readin' too much
It's so nice
The print is smaller than the ants in the grass
I'll have to put it away now
In the morning there are things to be read
Words to be said and food to be fed but I
Won't be there I'll be clutching on a megaphone
Pointed at my head, would you be there
Would you kindly read this word for word
So loud and clear, I can't remember it all
It needs to be clear, I tell you
If the feeling drops out of your voice
Would you kindly pick it up

This is how I'll go out tonight
Dressed in blue by the book tonight
This is how I'll go out tonight
But I don't need a book

We're talkin' anchors, talkin' ships
We're talkin' seas, we're talking everything you need
You should be working now
Not only asking how and the whereabouts
Of where you'll be
I don't suspect you will be thinking
When the brain is dead and the mind has taken over
This is a skull this is not a game
Where have you been, are you with us?
Can you hear us?
Got the megaphone pointed at you...

This is how I'll go out tonight
Dressed in blue by the book tonight
This is how I'll go out tonight
But I don't need a book

Bridge: C  A  C  A  G

This is how...

Stage
-----

F#  (E)
I wanna feel
I wanna try
I wanna rock in the city tonight
I wanna deal
Don't wanna die
I wanna bring my Captain Hook into the light

F#     E    D    C# B
People I've seen my day
A           E           D
Ranting and raving this beauty away
We are by and large the same
But words are too feeble
They can not contain
He was a rock and roll messiah
She was known for her child care
The truth is gonna give up the world
If you can give up the stage
   A          E      D
If I can give up the stage
   A           E      D
If we can give up the stage

C#m     A    E        B
Come to this, I can't come to you
C#m      A    E        B
Don't do this, wake me up tonight
G#m     A    E        B
Come to this, I can't come to you
C#m      A    E        B
Don't do this, wake me up tonight
Tonight, tonight, come on mutherphucker

He was a rock and roll messiah
How could you stand to lay beside her
nananananananananananana yeah yeah yeah
Give me the stage beside her...


Waitress
--------
C            D
Come on baby leave some change behind
She was a bitch but I don't care
She brought out our food on time
Wore a phunky barrette in her hair
             G                   A
Come on baby leave some change behind
          Bm              C
She was a bitch but good enough
              G
To leave some change
            A                    Bm
Everybody's good enough for some change

The girl's got family
She needs cash to buy asprin for her pain
Everybody's good enough for some change
We all get the flu
We all get aids
We've got to stick together
After all, everybody's good enough for some change
SOME PHUCKING CHANGE!!!

Pillar of Davidson
------------------
Am  (pickup notes are:  A|-0-2-3--|)

Am
Warm bodies, I sense
                                    G
Are not machines that can only make money
Am
Past, perfect tense
                                    G
Words for a feeling and all I've discovered
Am
I'll be along son
With medicine supposed to, designed to
         G
Make you high
Am
I'll be along son
                                         G
With words for a feeling and all I've discovered

Em  F#m G
Old bad eyes (3x)

On lonliness comes
Go see the foreman go see the propheteer
On lonliness drives
We're taking our time moving shit
For this holy slime

Em  F#m G
Old bad eyes (3x)
         A
Almighty fear
    D      G                A
The shepard won't leave me alone
He's in my face and I
    D       G     A
The shepard of my days
    G          A          G
And I want you here by my heart
       A            G
And my head I can't start
         A
Till I'm dead...

Bridge:  C  G  C  G

Outro backing vocals:

Here I am locking horns with the stallion (?)
Failing to hold my head up
I go back against
Pillar of Davidson
Feeling to high to go down
Cheaper than our souls
He will want no more
Deeper and deeper
So I hold my head up
Cheaper than our souls
He will want no more
Pillar of Davidson
Feeling to high to go down


White, Discussion
-----------------
]: E  D  C#  C  D :[  (5ths)

I talk of freedom
You talk of the flag
I talk of revolution
You'd much rather brag
And as the decibels of this disenchanting
Discourse continue to damnpen the day
The coin flips again and again and again
And again as our sanity walks away

All this discussion though politically correct
Is dead beyond destruction
Though it leaves me quite erect

And as the final sunset rolls behind the Earth
And the clock is finally dead
I'll look at you, you'll look at me
And we'll cry alot, but this will be what we said
This will be what we said

E                                  C      A
Look where all this talking got us baby...

Untitled Track (Horse)
----------------------

G       F                         E
All the things that they make you say
And all the love that you hide away
I'll pick you up and it'll be alright
I'll pick you up and it'll be tonight

G          Bm            F     G
She rode a horse into my head
She rode a horse into my head
She won't discipline the children
G               Bm                  F
And now they're running wild on the beach
            G        Asus4    
And I don't care, no I don't care...

It's the middle of the night and we're here
Playing dominos and drinking beer
I try to think of something deep to say
But my well is dipping dry today

She rode a horse...
