Em Em   C C    Em Em   C C   Em Em   C C   Em Em   C C

G G D D C C
At your house the smell of our still living human bodies and oven gas


You pray to nothing out loud

G G Em Em C C
Two first names and an ampersand embroidered proudly on a kitchen towel


G G D D C C D D
You're a beautiful and violent work with the skinny neck of a Chinese bird

G G D D
in a fading ancient painting.

Em Em C C G G
And if you're in heaven waiting you made it there fighting

DCD
the tightest kite string in a bad storm with lightning.


# Chorus:

Em Em G G C C Em Em
And now these few presidents frowning in my pocket

C C Em Em D D C C G G D D
Can't persuade no god to let me let you talk.

Em Em G G C C Em Em
And now these few presidents frowning in my pocket

C C G G D D C C G G D D
Can't persuade no god to let me let you off.

GD
Even though I haven't seen you in years

CD Em EmDC
yours is a funeral I'd fly to from anywhere.


# Verse 2:

G G D D
I thought I had a pebble in my sock

Em Em C C
I pulled it off and shook out a wasp

G G D D
It stumbled out lost and without a pause

Em Em C C
unstung as I was, still I stomped it.


Em Em C C
I thought "There is no paved street worthy

Em Em C C
of your perfect Scandinavian feet."

Em Em C C
My crooked chinese fingers groped (wah-wah wah)

Em Em CD
the machinery of your throat.


Em Em
# Repeat Chorus then repeat "anywhere." (fade out)
