C#m BYou spread your rusty fingers across the ledge.
E You get your grip and peer down over the edge.
You watch the city move and breathe and migrate.
C#mYoure not apart of it. Youre broken now, like us.
B EI turn and brush the birds from off my shoulders.
G#mAnd cross side-walks with an earful of white noise.
C#m BYou sit up on your perch for the rest of the night.
EYou watch the moon and hope the damn thing crumbles.
You count the stars reflecting in the windows.
And then you realize just how minimal you are.
C#m B EI stop and watch the airplanes leave the city.
G#mAnd I silently wish I was on one.
C#m BYou sit down slow and watch yourself in the glass.
EYou reach inside and tear out all your cables.
Snakes of smoke are dripping from your fingers.
You have no body, just a cage to hold your parts.
C#m BI have no answers; Im rambling.
E G#mI was never one to solve whatever has gone wrong.
C#m BYou lie down on the roof and watch the sun rise.
EIts burning fingers rummage through your insides.
And for a moment you feel like youre alive.
And then its gone, so you get up.
E BUp, up, baby. Theres blood on the sidewalks of this town.
C#m B ATheyve got us on the ropes. But we dont have to take it lying down anymore.
Our hands arent tied now.
E BDown, down, baby. Down in the in the center of this town.
C#mTheyve got em buried deep.
B AUnder layers of concrete are the bones of our past.
(Oh no, no)
C#m B E AWell leave on the evening train.
C#m B E AIt wont be long, but it feels that way.
C#m B E ABut home never meant very much to us any__way.
C#m B ASo we convince ourselves that were better off gone.
E B C#mAnd we collapse on a road.
B A B EOn an old dirt road, where the sun doesnt look like such a waste.
E B C#m B AAnd we fall asleep, under leaves of a couple of them nearby tress.
B EAnd we never wake again.
Never again, no never again.
