From "Almost Killed Me"
"I always dream about a unified scene"


A
Payne avenue lives up to its name some nights it's painful and strange.
D
The whole city seemed sane in the day.
N.C.
But some nights it seems distressed and deranged.
A                        F#m
The east side is where we met with those guys
     C#m                              D
that said they'd get us high but that changed.
            E
Now they're down in the basement.
          D
They're bashing out his brains.
A                                E
Kids are getting cut up with the motorcycle chains.

A
St. Paul had it all when we called.
D
They were maxing out on medicine.
A
A shaved head. The blood on the bed.
D
Those guys you'd recognize.
              E
They had the same tattoos as gideon.
A                    F#m
Strong stuff and she had more than enough.
         C#m                       D
She was slumping over smiling and sailing off with cherubim.
    E                         D
the cityscape skins are kinda kicking it again.
A                   E
They're gonna show these kids some discipline.

F#m
Gideon's been living up in bay city, michigan.
N.C.
He's been workng at the michelin.
                                                  E E E E  F#m
He got messed up with some messed up magicians.

We got so highsome nights michigan looked just like a mitten
                          E E E E F#m
some nights we got fried.

Strung out on residuals and visuals and laser shows.

Reach into the speaker and try to hold on to the quarter notes.
