Verse 1: (continue intro chords w/cello riff- Neko)

       F              Am            Bb          C
   The skirts go up, before the wall  among the madding crowds, 
       F                      Am                    Dm     C
   They ruin, Like the rest of ruin, the rest of us ruin
             F                      Am           Bb           C
 You are a living doll riding the circle tracks  behind the walls of clocks, 
           F                      Am                   Dm     C
   In your ruin, Like the rest of ruin, the rest of us ruin	


Chorus 1: (open strumming on power chords, no cello, Neko with Carl)
    Bb                         F         C
   Traffic will slow for the crash years
    Bb                            F         C      Dm     C
   There's no other show like it 'round here, as a ruuuule
    Bb                       F            C
   Windows will roll for the crash years 
         Bb                       F         C      Dm    C
   There's no other show like it 'round here, as a ruuuule

   Now the candle's end, you are a light turned low  and like the rest of us,
                     F            Am               Dm     C
    You've got those old, eternity blues, eternity blues
         F                              Am         Bb                C
  Your fingers raised, you're looking for the word, what you want is accident
                F                 Am                 Dm    C
    And not the drag, spectacular view, what you can lose

Chorus 2:
     Bb                         F         C
    Traffic will slow for the crash years
     Bb                            F         C      Dm     C
    There's no other show like it 'round here, as a ruuuule
     Bb                         F         C
    Windows will close in the crash years 

Bb                          F        C     Dm     C
    Honey child, you're not safe here, as a ruuuule

    Bb                            F         C      Dm     C
   There's no other show like it 'round here, as a ruuuule
    Bb                       F            C
   Windows will roll for the crash years 
         Bb                       F         C      Dm    C

    And the ruins the wild, the ruins the wild, tonight will be an open mic.

End on an F chord.
