[Intro]
G C G D

[Verse 1]
GI am not in Kansas
CI can't slow down and I can't stand it
GBroadcast News into Hallelujah
DHanne Darboven had a great idea
GMake a list, write it down
CShave your head, draw a crown
GMove back home with mom and dad
DThe pool is drained and they're not there
GMy bedroom is a stranger's gun room
COhio's in a downward spiral
GI can't go back there anymore
DSince alt-right opium went viral
[Chorus]
C AmI am not in Kansas
G DWhere I am, I don't know where
C Am G DTake me for a walk and blame this on the water dripping off the spear
[Verse 2]
GYou even get to wear a dress
CAnd feed his flesh to wayward daughters
GEveryone is so impressed
DTeachers, neighbors, and mothers, fathers
GFirst Testament was really great
CThe sequel was incredible
GLike the Godfathers or the first two Strokes
DEvery document's indelible
GInfidels and Heartbreak Beats
CSmidges of bad ecstasy
GI must have left it in my pocket
DWith my Christianity in my rocket
GI'm binging hard on Annette Bening
CI'm listening to R.E.M. again
GBegin The Begin, over and over
DBegin The Begin, over and over
[Chorus]
C AmI am not in Kansas
G DWhere I am, I don't know where
C Am G DTake me for a walk and blame this on the water dripping off the spear
[Interlude]
G CIf the sadness of life makes you tired
D GAnd the failures of man make you sigh
CYou can look to the time soon arriving
DWhen this noble experiment
Am GWinds down and calls it a day
[Verse 3]
GMy shadow's getting shorter
CI'm a child at the border
GOh Godmother, you can't ignore us
DThere isn't anybody else left to love us
GI wanted you when I was a child
CI raked the leaves and I started fires
GNow I'm reading whatever you give me
DIt's half your fault so half forgive me
GI'm way behind in reflex math
CBiphasic sleepless emotional crashes
GTwo days into one, shove 'em together
DI always wake up way before the weather
GMy mother needs an army
CBut I'm leaving home and I'm scared that I won't
GHave the balls to punch a Nazi
DFather, what is wrong with me?
[Chorus]
C AmI am not in Kansas
G DWhere I am, I don't know where
C Am G DTake me for a walk and blame this on the water dripping off the spear
[Verse 4]
GOil droppers, rubber gloves
CI raked the leaves, I lit 'em up
GI read whatever it is you give me
DIt's half your fault so half forgive me
GAt the real Neil Armstrong taught me
CTo play cutthroat at my Aunt Angela's house
GWhile my real dad's skate got caught in the ice
DAnd he drove us home with a spiral fracture
GIt was then I was enlightened
CRoberta Flack the whole way home
GI was entirely unfrightened
DDozing off and eternally un-alone
C AmThe flowers cover over everything
G DThey cover over everything
C Am G DThe flowers cover over everything
[Chorus]
C AmI am not in Kansas
G DWhere I am, I don't know where
C Am G DTake me for a walk and blame this on the water dripping off the spear
[Outro]
G CTime has come now to stop being human
D GTime to find a new creature to be
G CBe a fish or a weed or a sparrow
D C GFor the Earth has grown tired and all of your time has expired
G CAll the gardens are sprouting with flowers
D GAll the treetops are bursting with birds
G CAnd the people all know that it's over
D Am GThey lay down their ears and they hang up their tiresome words
