Capo on 3rd fret.


Em
Got glue in your feathers
Dmaj/A
What brought you to this?
C
A flightless bird surrounded by
A
Red handed kids
         Cbar     D 	 C	Em    C
In their borrowed black sheep's clothes
C	          Dmaj/A  G   Gsus2
Now everybody's in on the joke

Em
So practice your boredom
Dmaj/A
Look a thousand times removed
C
Cause only a freak would sing
A
In a crowded waiting room
           Cbar   Dmaj/A   C   Em C
They would turn you out in the cold
C		     D	       G   Gsus2
Because everybody's in on the joke

C
Are you missing a stranger
Dmaj/A		     G    Gsus2
That you might have loved?
C
Do you feel that there's something
Dmaj/A        G     Gsus2
You don't feel enough?
C			    D
There's a perfectly good poison
        D4 E4 D4  C 
For the perfectly numb
C
If you want some

But naming the feeling
It just, it kills the charade
And if flowers should bloom
Upon your wallpaper face
It will follow you everywhere you go
Because everybody's in on the joke

Desire only burns 
And envy's always green
A mind can only race
And a heart, it can only beat
There's these towering neon signs
We must uphold
To keep out the blackness
And run with the blue
Now only a fool would sing
As if he's telling the truth
Could you swallow down
That lump in your throat?
Because everybody's in on the joke

Are you missing a stranger 
That you might have loved?
Do you feel that there's something
You don't feel enough?
There's a perfectly good poison....

Are you missing a stranger 
That you might have loved?
Do you feel that there's something
You don't feel enough?
There's a perfectly good poison....
