chords corresponding to chords above in vers.

Verse:
 
B  
Born inside the gates of the family
F#b9
Hardened by a Roman machinery
E
Cast among the building sites
Abm                               F#b9
The coiling wires, the shots collected

B
Called out in the wake of a lottery
F#b9
Held inside the family gathering
E
Mirrored beams and doglike stretch
Abm                         F#b9
The wandering association

Chorus:
E                           Abm        F#
Murmurs in the dark confessional
E                                 Abm                  F#
And it rides along the road, ephemeral
                B
As in animal life

Verse:
Rusting in the shade of the batteries
Hanging from a rope in the gallery
Pacing down the balance beam of half-remembered holidays

No rush of light, no sign of belonging
No joy in building, love in the finishing
Chasing down an anodyne and half-reflected radiance

Chorus:
To hide below the ancient barricade
In chambers like the rooms a swallow made
For an animal life

Insturmental: intro chords x2

Verse:
Charging down the maw of the ocean
I wanna come close, I wanna come closer
I held your name inside my mouth through all the days of wandering

B
But called out from the mouth of oblivion
A
Cast away like dogs from the shelter
  E
I shed the dulling armor plates
        Abm                    F#
That once collected radiance

Chorus:
And surging at the blood's perimeter
The half-remembered wild interior
Of an animal life
