Bb Dm Gm DmI learned long ago 'bout a better way of killing birds
Bb Dm Gm FAnd what it means when they die in my hands
Bb Dm Gm DmLike a strangled heart, it never made much sense to me
Bb Dm Gm FWhy I'd need to know the best way to do that
Abm Eb Ebm GbBut you have to love the murderer I've become
Bb GmAs I'm standing here in front of you
Bb GmStanding right in front of you
Bb GmStanding here in front of you
GKilling birds
Bb Dm Gm DmI've spent my youth breaking down the walls my father built
Bb Dm Gm FJust like he did to his father before him
Bb Dm Gm DmBut then I had no home, so I tried to make a better one
Bb Dm Gm FIt looked just like his, so I burned it down again
Abm Eb Ebm GbNo there ain't a long parade of idiots
Bb GmAs I'm standing here in front of you
Bb GmStanding right in front of you
Bb GmStanding here in front of you
Bb GmKilling birds
Abm Eb Ebm GbYou don't have to love the murderer I've become
Bb Dm Gm DmIf I could spin a web, I would sit and wait for you
Bb Dm Gm FI wouldn't need a stone, I'd just poison you and tie you up
Bb Dm Gm DmAnd you would be a bird, a beautiful crescent one
Bb Dm Gm FAnd your eyes would beg, but I'm just doing my job
Bb GmStanding here in front of you
Bb GmStanding here in front of you
Bb GmStanding here in front of you
Bb GmStanding here in front of you
Bb GmStanding here in front of you
Bb GmStanding here in front of you
Bb GmStanding here in front of you
GKilling birds
