[VERSE]
Bm   A             G       D
One hand on this wily comet
Bm       A            D
Take a drink just to give me some weight
Bm   A         G     D
Some uber-man I'd make
     G           A
I'm barely a vapor

Bm    A       G          D
They shone a chlorine light on
Bm   A         D
A host of individual sins
Bm      A       G      D
Let's carve my aging face off
A            D
Fetch us a knife
A                D
Start with my eyes
A            D
Down so the lines
         G          A
Form a grimacing smile

Bm        A         G           D
Close your eyes to corral a virtue
Bm   A         D
Is this fooling anyone else?
Bm      A         G        D
Never worked so long and hard
   G              A
To cement a failure

[VERSE]
Bm       A            G             D
We can blow on our thumbs and posture
Bm         A              D
But the lonely are such delicate things
Bm    A          G          D
The wind from a wasp could blow them
A          D
Into the sea
     A                D
With stones on their feet
A             D            G          A
Lost to the light and the loving we need

[CHORUS]
G          D  
Still to come
G         D             A
The worst part and you know it
G            D
There is a numbness
G        D                 A
In your heart and it's growing

[INSTRUMENTAL] Bm A G D G A        x2

[VERSE]
Bm           A         G           D
With burnt sage and a forest of bygones
Bm           A
I click my heels
          D
Get the devils in line
Bm          A             G          D
A list of things I could lay the blame on
        G             A
Might give me a way out


Bm             A
But with each turn
            G           D
It's this front and center
Bm      A            D
Like a dart stuck square in your eye
Bm     A            G            D
Every post you can hitch your faith on
     A           D
Is a pie in the sky
A               D
Chock full of lies
   A           D
A tool we devise
         G            A
To make sinking stones fly

[CHORUS]
G          D  
Still to come
G         D             A
The worst part and you know it
G            D
There is a numbness
G        D                 A
In your heart and it's growing
