Amanda Palmer - Olly Olly Oxen Free chords

      
GSo, you wanted
DThat's what you get for wanting
You got it
EmThat's what you get for getting
Forgotten
BYou're gardening a rotting bed
Of raygun-era icons
GSo
Let's start it Let's start it
DFrom the minute you felt it
EmYou felt it like a prison
A panic, you felt it
BLike that coffee scene
From Moscow on the Hudson
GSo
...Be honest
DIt's not as if you're happy about it
EmIt's not as if you're animatronic
CIt's not as if you couldn't
Cry out any time you wanted
COlly olly oxen free
DAll the people you will never be
COlly olly oxen free
DOlly olly olly olly
Olly olly olly olly
GFate
You call it You color it
DThe color you want it
You carpet it
EmThat's awful convenient
BYou paint yourself a nice white room
With stripes and matching curtains
GSo
You forfeit
DYou cannot build a river across it
EmYou cannot hold your own heart hostage
CYou do not have the strength
To gag yourself in every closet
GThe wrong place, wrong mind
Timing's always bad
DYou're such a sad case
Misplaced renaissance
EmInventor of a worldwide
Heartbreak, taking it in stride
C'Cause you're an expert
Aren't you? Aren't you just a dime a dozen?
GMurderous monosyllabic moron
With no sense of purpose
DWorking on your songs all night
To justify your worthlessness
EmTo anyone who's watching
If they only saw your alter egos
CPretty in the shop windows
Where you got auctioned hours ago
COlly olly oxen free
DAll the people you will never be
COlly olly oxen free
Dolly olly olly olly
Higher than the king can
CSee no evil, hear no evil
DCapture me and throw the key
CSee no evil, hear no evil
DCapture me and throw the key away
Throw the key away
GSo
It's over
DYou're lying in a coffin of clutter
EmYour father and your sister, your drummer
BAre sorting through your Soft Cell tapes
GAnd lifesaver collection, and you wonder
DYou wonder if you could've done better
EmYou wonder if you should've surrendered
Before you learned that
CNobody actually wants a fucking martyr
CDidn't you, didn't you, didn't
Didn't you see?
DDidn't you, didn't you, didn't
Didn't you see?
CDidn't you, didn't you, didn't
Didn't you see me?
DDidn't you, didn't you, didn't
Didn't you see me?
COlly olly oxen free
DAll the people you will never be
COlly olly oxen free
Dolly olly olly olly
Higher than the king can
CSee no evil, hear no evil
DCapture me and throw the key
CSee no evil, hear no evil
DCapture me and throw the key away
CThrow the key away
DThrow the key away
