intro:
C chordC, Em chordEm, Am chordAm, F chordF,

Verse 1:
C chordC Em chordEm
Milemarker twenty-seven says we’re on the way to Heaven

Am chordAm F chordF
And I smile at the passenger seat

C chordC
Forty miles from Chicago

Em chordEm
There is snow on the windshield

Am chordAm F chordF
And you’re downtown dragging your feet

C chordC Em chordEm
Now I’m circling the block around Union Central Station

Am chordAm F chordF
And there are bullets flying into the car

C chordC Em chordEm
It’s the same as it’s always been

Am chordAm F chordF
It’s the same as it’s always been

C chordC
Two-hundred miles from Chicago

Em chordEm
There is blood on the windshield

Am chordAm F chordF
And I am reeling as you gather your things

C chordC
I said I don’t know what to do anymore

Em chordEm
As if I knew what to do before

Am chordAm F chordF
I can f ck up almost anything

Chorus 1:

C chordC Em chordEm Am chordAm F chordF
I don’t think that I would exactly call it love

C chordC Em chordEm
But it’s dripping down my consciousness

Am chordAm F chordF
Miss you’re slipping down my lungs

Verse 2:
C chordC Em chordEm
I want to build you a protest out of sticks and rocks

Am chordAm F chordF
I find in the backyard behind the house you grew up in

C chordC Em chordEm
In loving memory of all our nonconformity

C chordC Em chordEm
I want to sing you a signal that reaches only the ears

Am chordAm F chordF
Of young disenfranchised straight white boys

C chordC Em chordEm
Because that would feel normal

Am chordAm F chordF
and none of this does

Chorus 2:

C chordC Em chordEm Am chordAm F chordF
I don’t think that I would exactly call it love

C chordC Em chordEm
But it’s dripping down my consciousness

Am chordAm F chordF
As you’re slipping down my lungs

C chordC Em chordEm Am chordAm F chordF
So save it for a rainy day and maybe then you’ll see

C chordC Em chordEm Am chordAm F chordF
That I am like the earth old man there’s no way around me

C chordC
But even in my dreams

Em chordEm
I still don’t know the difference between

Am chordAm F chordF
What it is I want and what it is I need

C chordC
I wanna see you be brave

Em chordEm
I wanna see you surviving

Am chordAm
I wanna see both of us

F chordF
Prospering and thriving separately

C chordC Em chordEm
I want the catharsis of knowing

Am chordAm F chordF
Something bad’s about to happen

C chordC Em chordEm Am chordAm F chordF
But also knowing that I can’t do anything about it

C chordC Em chordEm
Because your new house just don’t shut

Am chordAm F chordF
Quite like the one you grew up in used to

C chordC Em chordEm
I wanna come and visit

Am chordAm F chordF C chordC
I wanna see this through but

Em chordEm Am chordAm F chordF
I never will because you’re just not what I need

C chordC Em chordEm
And I am just not what you want

Am chordAm F chordF
Though you’re in everyone I meet and

C chordC Em chordEm
We’ll say fuck the banks but we’ll still use them every day

Am chordAm
And when we fight amongst ourselves

F chordF
The banks will say Okay

C chordC Em chordEm Am chordAm F chordF
Have you been spending all your capital on causes you deem just You keep

C chordC Em chordEm Am chordAm F chordF
doing what you can we’ll keep doing what we must

C chordC Em chordEm
So despite what you have learned

Am chordAm F chordF
In songs for which you’d take a bullet

C chordC Em chordEm
You won’t find objective truth

Am chordAm F chordF
In a final rhyming couplet

C chordC Em chordEm Am chordAm F chordF
A chordA couplet, a couplet, a coupleeeeeeeeeeet...
