[Intro]
Am  Bm  C  D


[Verse 1]
Am Bm C In my mind, not enough birds have died
D AmIn the shadow of this once cast stone
Bm CAnd I'm not unwell, but I am ill at ease
D AmWith all the buttons still left to sew
Bm C D Am BmThrough needles eyes, see me sharper than I see myself
[Refrain]
G D Am CSo you should stitch me in to stop me from bleeding
[Verse 2]
Am Bm C And education can be fickle I think
DSometimes the more you learn
Am Bm CThe more you lose a sense of what you think you know
D AmAbout all the buttons still left to sew
Bm C D Am BmAnd I'm outside myself more and more these days
[Refrain]
G D Am CSo you should stitch my skin to stop me from bleeding
AmAll over this fresh song and I
EmAcknowledge all the corners
G D Am CAnd all the freshly painted walls, that bear no former scars
AmSince they're patched up and over now
EmBut I was born of miners
G D Am CAnd I'm designed to chip away, tunnel into the dark
[Chorus]
C G D But why must it always come down to some unseen contender?
Am Bm CI don't know
G D AmWhen hatchlings all we are just battling the whitewash birds above
Bm CSharks below
G DThough I feel empathy towards the ones who threaten me
Am Bm C G/F#I'd still leave them soft-shelled to the beaks of crows
[Bridge]
Em G But every now and then a tempest blows
Em B7 And the veneer I keep becomes unsewn
C GBut will you ever read me well?
CI can only assume so
Em G And I'm buoyant like a flotsam man
Em B7 Relegated by the waves to land
C GThey dry me like a brittle bone
C Am C G D Em G/F#Paraded like a polished stone
[Chorus]
C G D But why must it always come down to some unseen contender?
Em G/F# CI don't know
G D EmWhen hatchlings all we are just battling the whitewash birds above
G/F# CSharks below
G DThough I feel empathy towards the ones who threaten me
Em G/F# C G D Em G/F#I'd still leave them soft-shelled to the beaks of crows
[Chorus]
C G D But why must it always come down to some unseen contender?
Em G/F# CI don't know
G D EmWhen hatchlings all we are just battling the whitewash birds above
G/F# CSharks below
G DThough I feel empathy towards the ones who threaten me
Em G/F# C G D EmI'd still leave them soft-shelled to the beaks of crows
G/F# C G D EmAnd that's what you ought to know
G/F# C G D Em G/F# C G D EmI'd see them smashed on the reefs below
