              Em
When you were young
                G
You'd bite your tongue
  D                              A
Calm, always did what you were told

               Em
Never ran your mouth
      Dsus4/F#  G
Lived life on tiptoes
D                     A
Only felt peace if by yourself

   (pause)      Em            A     C/G
But everybody's bones are just holy branches
          D                              Em
Cast from trees to cut patterns into the world
       A                 C/G
And in time we find some shelter
          D                            Am
Spill our leaves and then sleep in the Earth
               C/G           
And when we're there we'll belong
                                             Em
'cause the Earth don't give a damn if you're lost

Em        G
Now I live alone
D                    A
Work in the belly of machines
                    Em
Wring my soot-black hands
     Dsus4/F#  G
And I don't sleep much
D               
Days don't feel different
         A
From the nights
   (pause)           C/G
With no goals in mind
          Em           D
There's a hole in my chest
                       A
From the time i walked away
                   C/G
One i filled with sweat 
               Em                      D (pause)
'cause now i know i'm  nothin' they want

                            Em            A     C/G
            But everybody's bones are just holy branches

          D                              Em
Ride the breeze to cut patterns in the leaves
       A                 C/G
And in time we find some shelter
          D                            C/G
Spill our seeds and then wait for our turns
        Em           D                  A
But for now we're adrift on the waves of discontent
                    C/G
Trying to carve our place
       Em                           D
All in hopes we'll be something they want
                       Em
But I'm not holding my breath

Em     G     D     Am x4

A          C               A
Trace your fingers down my spine
A         C              A
Make your home behind my eyes
A       C                   A
Line my skull with harmless lies
             C              D              Em
I'll bide my time until I'm something they want

End.
