Is like a tiny island in the sea of all the people

Who glide across the very surface that made his bones feeble

Either way he can't deny he is a pantaloon

MARCH TO THE SEA

[Verse 1]
G chordG C chordC
There's miles of land in front of us
Em chordEm
And we're dying with every step we take
D chordD
We're dying with every breath we make
G chordG
And I'll fall in line
C chordC
The stranger's back is all I see
Em chordEm
He's only a few feet in front of me
D chordD
And I'll look left and right sometimes
G chordG
But I'll fall in line
C chordC
No one looks up anymore
Em chordEm
Cause you might get a rain drop in your eye
D chordD
And heaven forbid they see you cry
G chordG
As we fall in line
C chordC
And about this time of every year
Em chordEm
The line will go to the ocean pier
D chordD
And walk right off into the sea
G chordG
And then we fall asleep

[Instrumental]
G chordG C chordC Em chordEm D chordD
G chordG C chordC Em chordEm D chordD
G chordG C chordC Em chordEm D chordD

[Verse 2]
G chordG C chordC
And as we near the end of land
Em chordEm
And our ocean graves are just beyond the sand
D chordD G chordG
I ask myself the question Why I fall in line
C chordC
Then out of the corner of my eye
Em chordEm
I see a spaceship in the sky
D chordD
and hear a voice inside my head
C chordC G chordG D chordD
Follow me instead
C chordC G chordG D chordD
Follow me instead
C chordC G chordG D chordD
Follow me
C chordC G chordG D chordD
Follow me

[Instrumental]
G chordG C chordC Em chordEm D chordD

[Verse 3]
G chordG C chordC
Then the wages of war will start
Em chordEm
Inside my head with my counterpart
D chordD
And the emotionless marchers will chant the phrase
G chordG
This line's the only way
C chordC
And then I start down the sand
Em chordEm
My eyes are focused on the end of land
D chordD
But again the voice inside my head says
C chordC G chordG D chordD
Follow me instead
C chordC G chordG D chordD
Follow me instead
C chordC G chordG D chordD
Follow me
C chordC G chordG D chordD
Follow me instead
C chordC G chordG D chordD
Follow me instead
C chordC G chordG D chordD
Follow me instead
C chordC G chordG D chordD
Follow me instead
C chordC G chordG D chordD
Follow me instead

[Verse 4]
G chordG C chordC
Take me up seal the door
Em chordEm
I don't wanna march here anymore
D chordD
I realize that this line is dead
G chordG
So I'll follow you instead
C chordC
So then you put me back in my place
Em chordEm
So I might start another day
D chordD
And once again I will be
G chordG
In a march to the sea

Why God died

[Interlude]

A# chordA# F chordF Dm chordDm C chordC

[Verse 3]
A# chordA# F chordF
The demon sat there waiting on her porch
Dm chordDm C chordC
It was a little dark so we held a makeshift torch
A# chordA# F chordF
And when my car was far out of sight
Dm chordDm C chordC
He crept in her room and stayed there for the night

[Bridge]
A# chordA#
And then I felt chills in my bones
F chordF
The breath I saw was not my own
Dm chordDm
I knew my skin that wrapped my frame
C chordC
Wasn't made to play this game
A# chordA#
And then I saw Him torch in hand
F chordF
He laid it out what he had planned
Dm chordDm
And then I said I'll take the grave
C chordC
Please just send them all my way

[Outro]
A# chordA# F chordF
The air begins to feel a little thin
Dm chordDm C chordC
As we're waiting for the morning to begin

But for now you told me to hold this jar
Dm chordDm
And when I looked inside I saw

It held your heart

For me to walk away with

I began to understand

[Break]
A chordA
So the hearse ran out of gas
C#m chordC#m
A chordA passenger person grabbed a map
F#m chordF#m
And the driver inside it contrived a new route to save the past
A chordA
And checked his watch and grabbed a cab
C#m chordC#m
A chordA beautifully plain taxi cab
F#m chordF#m
A chordA cab had it cleared out back and two men started to unpack
A chordA
Driving once again
C#m chordC#m
But now this time there were three men
F#m chordF#m
And then I heard one of them say I know the night will turn to gray
A chordA
I know the stars will start to fade
C#m chordC#m
When all the darkness fades away
F#m chordF#m
We had to steal him from his fate So he could see another day
A chordA
Then I cracked open my box
F#m chordF#m
Someone must have picked the lock
C#m chordC#m
A chordA little light revealed the spot Where my fingernails had fought
A chordA
Then I pushed it open more
F#m chordF#m
Pushing up against the door
C#m chordC#m
Then I sat up off the floor And found the breath I was searching for
A chordA
Then there were three men up front
C#m chordC#m
All I saw were backs of heads
F#m chordF#m
And then I asked Am chordAm I alive and well or am I dreaming dead
A chordA
And then one turned around to say
C#m chordC#m
We're driving toward the morning sun
F#m chordF#m
Where all your blood is washed away And all you did will be undone

[Outro]
A chordA C#m chordC#m F#m chordF#m
And I said
A chordA C#m chordC#m F#m chordF#m
Don't be afraid

I said

1 ISLE OF FLIGHTLESS BIRDS

[Intro]
Em chordEm D chordD G chordG D chordD Am chordAm B7 chordB7
Em chordEm D chordD G chordG D chordD Am chordAm B7 chordB7
Em chordEm Am chordAm G chordG B7 chordB7
Em chordEm Am chordAm G chordG B7 chordB7
Em chordEm Am chordAm G chordG B7 chordB7
Em chordEm Am chordAm G chordG B7 chordB7

[Verse 1]
Em chordEm Am chordAm G chordG B7 chordB7
Now is the climax to the story
Em chordEm Am chordAm G chordG B7 chordB7
That gives the demons and angels purpose
Em chordEm Am chordAm G chordG B7 chordB7
They fly around while we are walking
Em chordEm Am chordAm G chordG B7 chordB7 C chordC
And mold our emotions just to please them

[Chorus]
D chordD Em chordEm
I am cold can you hear
G chordG B7 chordB7 C chordC
I will fly with no hope no fear
D chordD Em chordEm
And the ground taunts my wings
G chordG D chordD
Plummet as I sing plummet as I sing

[Interlude]
Em chordEm Am chordAm G chordG B7 chordB7
Em chordEm Am chordAm G chordG

[Verse 2]
B7 chordB7 Em chordEm
All we are is an isle of flightless birds
Am chordAm G chordG
We find our worth in giving birth and stuff
B7 chordB7
We're lining our homes against winding roads

And we think the going is tough
Em chordEm Am chordAm
We pick songs to sing remind us of things that no body cares about
G chordG B7 chordB7
And honestly we're probably more suicidal than ever now
Em chordEm Am chordAm G chordG
If you decide to live by what you think's wrong and what's right
B7 chordB7
Believe me you'll begin to wish you were sleeping
Em chordEm
Your weeping will creep in head and you'll cry
Am chordAm G chordG
But if we wake up every morning and decide what we believe
B7 chordB7 Em chordEm Am chordAm G chordG B7 chordB7
We can take a part our very heart and the light will set us free

[Chorus]
C chordC D chordD Em chordEm
I am cold can you hear
G chordG B chordB C chordC
I will fly with no hope no fear
D chordD Em chordEm
And the ground taunts my wings
G chordG D chordD C chordC
Plummet as I sing plummet as I
D chordD Em chordEm
I am cold can you hear
G chordG D chordD C chordC
I will fly with no hope no fear
D chordD Em chordEm
And the ground taunts my wings
G chordG D chordD
Plummet as I sing plummet as I

[Verse 3]
C chordC
How frustrating and so degrading
D chordD
His time we're wasting
Em chordEm
And time will fly by and the sky will cry as light is fading

And he is waiting oh so patiently
G chordG D chordD
While we repeat the same routine as we will please comfortability
C chordC
Please think about why you can't sleep in the evening
D chordD
And please don't be afraid of what your soul is really thinking
Em chordEm
Your soul knows good and evil your soul knows both sides
G chordG D chordD
And it's time you pick your battle and I promise you this is mine

[Outro]
C chordC D chordD Em chordEm G chordG D chordD
C chordC D chordD Em chordEm G chordG D chordD
