Mewithoutyou – Winter Solstice chords

Chords
Transpose:
F#m EWinter solstice, the earth open wide
F#mwith a heart crushed like footsteps in snow
E(((fictitious persons disclaimers implied
F#mto all listening from rooftops below)))
Eit had rained and the air was like perfume outside
A G#m C#mas the sky changed
F#m Ewe began when the ground was still dry
F#mplanting vineyards where vineyards don’t grow
Eshaping cypress with pitch on both sides
F#mfor the nights when our trumpets won’t blow
Ethat regret still there circling like vultures inside
A G#m C#mas your face changed?
EThey don’t stay inside.
(there but for Thy grace go I...)
A C#m F#mthrough the eyes of machines we viewed immaculate scenes
C#mthat had already passed me by
A C#m F#mall the stars on the ground, Noah’s ark in the clouds
C#mset sail in the flood of my mind,
A C#m F#mthe other animals drowned in blasphemous towns
C#mand asked as they passed me by
A C#m F#m C#m“was to do as I please a European disease?”
F#m EWinter solstice, the earth open wide
F#mwith a mouth closed and face carved like stone
Edressed the dawn in the air drawn designs
F#mas the sounds rose in waveforms unknown
Eand you smile but your vampire complexion still shows
A G#m C#mso the past goes.
F#m EAugust 3rd, all the earth had closed down,
F#mso with breastplates of righteousness low
Esearched for streams in the caves underground
F#mwhere the Baptists and bootleggers go
Ewhen the sun hits Deer Flat your reflection still shows
A G#m C#mand your past shows.
EIt’s really all that shows
(so often unrecognizably so)
A C#m F#mWe gave up on our dreams for those projected on screens
C#mthat had already passed me by
A C#m F#mwith further suffering found in our insufferable sounds
C#mand the thought in the back of my mind:
A C#m F#m“does my misery feed a metaphysical need
C#mthat’s long since passed me by,
A C#mneither reasoning why
F#m C#mnor offering reply?”
