Mewithoutyou – Rainbow Signs chords

[Verse 1]

AmPale horse songs of a slow decline
FSideshow words if the songs don't mind
CG-d gave Noah the rainbow sign
FNo more water, is the H-Bomb next time?
AmPale horse vows in a grave I-do-yes-definitely reply
FSmile for the camera at a 'church' nearby
CThrew a mute curse at the Boise sky
FFor my fucked up Napoleon-of-St.-Helena-hairline
AmBlack horse leaping when the frogs withdrew
FThe parable of the plums where the olives grew
CClouded rearrangement of sounds we knew:
FAn Idaho sunset for my own private Waterloo
AmPale horse songs of a slow decline
FSide show words if our moms don't mind:
CCloud gave no one a rainbow sign--
FSix-point starred ink flag next time?
Am F C F x2(End with one strum on Am until Aaron starts singing the Hebrew/Arabic verse)

[Instrumental] Am F C F x2 [Verse 3]
AmWith imperial crowns we were 'sent'
FRiding out conquest-bent
Daylight is breaking
CWielding the sanctified sword
FFor the army of the Scarecrow Lord
Daylight is breaking
AmBalancing scales at our feet
FMeasuring out two pounds of barley, six pounds of buckwheat
CBeasts of the Battersea Shield
FAt the opening of the fourth seal
AmThe sky, I'd been told
Would roll up like a scroll
FAs the mountains and islands moved from their place
CAnd the sun would turn black
As a dead raven's back
FBut there's nowhere to hide
From the Judge's face
AmAfter which message-less birds take flight without cause
FTo the silence they've heard in the absence of laws
C C FOr imperial crowns: Unsent, unsigned
[Verse 4]
AmThe other night I dreamt I was finally out of college
FIn my own pair of sandals, I had turned into my father
CWhistling our tune about the Rio Grande
FLike an anchorite in June I took hold of my own hand
AmAnd started on the Abrahamic joke we knew
FAbout apostrophes and pronouns and you-remember-who
C"But let's keep that silly punchline between me and you
FLittle Haroon
AmAnd the man in the moon."
[Outro] (one strum per chord) Am F C F Am
