Okkervil River – We Need A Myth chords

GWe need a myth
BmWe need an amethyst bridge
EmWe need a high hanging cliff
Jump, fall and lift
CWe can make it
But we need a myth We need a path through the mist Like in our beds, we were just kids Like what was said by our parents G#m A myth
C#'Cause what we're after is just this
A myth'Cause what we're after is just this
AWe need a myth
C#mI feel my heart's like a fist
F#mWords spilling out of the blessed lips
DOf any prophet or goddess
I need a myth Brought back to life by a kiss Scrape away grey cement Show me the world as it was again As it was in a myth A red ribbon to reconnect The lady's head to her neck And to forget that her throat was ever slit
Bb'Cause what we're after is just this
EbIt's a myth
'Cause what we're after is just this
G#m F# EAnd I'm sick of all these picture books that try
To steal some old reflections for their light But desperate measures point to desperate times
F#And that's why
We need a myth
B Ebm G#m E(Instrumental)
BWe're cut adrift
EbmWe need a mass uplift
G#mThe world is trembling and weeping
EJust at the point of believing
In a myth The sun that shines on my head The moon that lights me to bed Were two identical twins Inside of a myth I heard the voice of a friend On Lethe's banks, wading in And he said, "Before I forget...”
C#We need a myth
FmAs we lean in to kiss
BbmTo get two nails through the wrist
F#To get covered in blood
And to get covered in spit
C#And to forgive
And if all we're taught is a trick Why would this feeling persist? And with the truth closing in I must insist We need a myth -------------------------- As the song progresses, they use barre chords further up the neck; for example, even though the last set of chords has an F-minor in it, you'll want to do it at the 7th fret instead of the 1st if you want to be as accurate as possible.
