by Matt Duke
Tabbed by Ben Mascioli

Capo on 3rd Fret
Intro:
G C G D
G C D

              G      C           D             Em
So here's the note I left by the fireplace and ash
             C                                  D
From all the notes that I had burned not long ago.
               G    C             D                    Em
It's great how severing all these ties can make things right,
      C                                       D
Or at least less wrong than they ever were before.

               G        C           D                  Em
Those days I'd sit, pensive, by the window and I could taste
            C                            D
The awful flavor of nostalgia mixed with hurt.
           G                  C
But now my mouth, my mouth is dry.
           D                       Em
I choke on logic and my tongue is tied
                  C                               D
From reciting inspired bible verses and bullshit lies.

      Em                         
They say that this world is a wide open road
     G           D          Em
And we're stuck holding the wheel,
       C                                                 D
But in one hand's a whiskey and the other's too drunk to steer,
                       G      
So where do we go from here?

G C G D
G C Em D

              G                           C
I dance and I pray, I dance and pray for rain
             D                Em
To wipe this earth out once again!-
                  C                             D
And extend those forty days and nights indefinitely.
             G     C                    D           Em
There'll be tidal waves as all of our problems wash away,
                C                               D
You can here my laughter just before I start to drown.

   Em
If everyone here is a child of God,
         G            D       Em
Then the world is a pitiless whore
         C                                                   D
And He's still playing favorites and behind on His child support.
                       G
So where do we go from here now?

G C G D
G C Em D
x2

Quietly, play each chord only once:
    Em                                    
The noose that we wear doesn't matter at all,
    G      D            Em
(Unless we kick out our feet)
    C  (begin to build back up...)                 D
Perhaps our salvation is to know that we're incomplete.


Back at regular volume:
              G                    C               
So here's the note, the note that counts,
           D            Em
Explaining why I wanted out.
            C
It reads in small print:
                                D
"I'm much to tired to think anymore..."

                       G
So where do we go from here?

G C G D
G C Em D
G C G D
G C Em D
(Repeat "Where do we go from here now?" with the occasional vocal riffing til end.)
