A F#m DRagged robbins for the curtain call
A F#m DWrapped in ribbons on the trailer door
A F#m DCarved initials in a concrete footstall
A F#m DOn the imitation marble floor
A F#m DWe're the boxtop admissions and their throwaways,
A F#m DStrewn across tobacco roads
A F#m DWith their wormwood shots and their snake oil plots
A F#m DDrunk sheepshank con men and their sycophants
A F#m DAnd I
A F#m DI often wonder if I've already died
[GUITAR DROPS OUT; Only bass/drums play for a frame]
A F#m DOut at elbows by the encore
A F#m DBut there's a citadel inside
A F#m DWhere I'll go and shape my heart like yours,
A F#m DAs you shape yours like mine
A F#m DWhere we're the spiraling arms of all galaxies
A F#m DAnd we're the microscopic sand
A F#m DSuffering from delusions of ungrandeur on middling display
A F#m D A F#m DBeside the Cardiff giant with the alabaster eyes
A F#m D A F#m DI often wonder if I've already died
A F#m DI often wonder if I've already died,
[BRIDGE]: repeat 4x
AOr if the 'I'
Aif the 'I'
A Dis an unintelligible lie
A Off we flew like swarms of hornets
F#m D'Woken up' from winter's rest
ATo colonize with plastic pulp
F#m DOur neighbor's perfect paper nest
AWhile all year round potter wasp
F#m DHas buzzed her unhinged song
AYou can hear its creaking in our floorboards
F#m DMegalomania's only mania if you're wrong
A, F#m, D x2A (strummed a few times during the instrumental outro)
