VerseAFires of the lighthouse burning in the bayBmWaters of the sound sleeping through the dayAOstrich of the night half buried in the sandBmNearer comes the man, sickle in his handABattles in the back seat, soap box carBmBlack-bolt lightning car I don't care who you areAFires of the lighthouse, sound of the guitarBm[?] regardChorusA C#mDeath where is thy sting? In the trails ofF#mSunfish sails and curve stitch string?A C#mBlack mass ghosts of half-chewed hostsF#mOff the Henlopen coast in the saltwater springChorusA C#mYou arrive washed up in the tide Normally aliveF#mwith your consolation boots of Spanish inquisition eyesA C#mPrancing around the stage at your advancing ageF#mOffering stale communion to the presbyters of time?VerseACousins on the swing set, rabbits in the grass:BmIs it too much to ask to reproduce the past?AStories of the ice boat wreck kept us warmBmSheltered from storm on the ocean floorChorus (quiet)A C#mAnd in the morning, we rest in Corinthian headdressF#mOn couches of ivoryA C#mAnd wake in the moonlight Like badgers at midnightF#mTo friends made in factories somewhere(louder)A C#mYou'll know where to find us, our best years behind usF#mBarefooted pilgrims at shrines of our youth:A C#m'Our joy was electric, our circles concentric...'F#mConverging on statues of permanenceChorusA C#mDeath where is thy sting?F#mYou ought to put more thought into what you bravely singA C#mAft-mast ships of straw-short bricksF#mYou'll soon see exactly where my victory isA C#mThe spring to its slumber Your lighthouses blackF#mLike virginal slumber I'll break like the lapA C#mOf your Delaware shore Your Blue Hen remainsF#mWill dissolve at my door Like a teaspoon of salt in the rainChorus (no Chords) And I'll wrap up your absence In blankets of reverence A mastodon shadow Divided by zeroA C#mAnd comfort your family With words like eternityF#mAnd friends made in factories somewhere
