Mewithoutyou – August 6th chords
[Verse]Bm DAug. 6th, carved in desks with old knives:A“Back when our common cause was aliveBmAnd--let’s say--the hyacinth fields were in bloomDChildren watched as the soldiers marched byAAll the birds fell like frogs from the skyBmProstrate in the streets every crescent moonDLonesome offspring of which still resoundAWith the victimless sins of their authors passed downBmAnd the remnants of loathsome, disjointed worldsDAlong the short path round the lily pad pondAWith off-white deerskin wedding dress onBmGerman songs, homemade bonnets like old-order, amish girls jilted by squirrelsDIn the parks of Sioux Falls haunted by church bellsALike ghosts of applause and the earth deep down tire-stacked walls likeBm D ANew Mexico, peaceful as moth-bitten pincushion dolls making up myths about wounds without cause...”BmAnd sometimes when it’s quiet my heart feels like GuernicaD[scenes from old air raid] on screens in blue duskAPerfumed neighborhoods/graveyards the breath feels like flies in my lungs, voice like ambulanceBmSirens whose light floods the groundD(“praying mantis spreads arms” said the lines of whose palm?)ASkyline shifting like clouds became “airplane descends”Bm[fade to scenes on the ground] human foreheads all smashedDForeign cars upside down, insect mouths open wideAI stared down a huge insect, bright red-glowing eyesBm[does it feel wrong to say a thought “metastasized”?], legs on both highway sides[Break] F#m A G (Said insect was mechanized!) F#m A G Em F#m A G (Said insect was mechanized!)
