Kings Crossing  Elliott Smith

[F#m]The king's crossing was the main[D] attraction
[A]Dominoes are fal[E]ling in a chain [Bm]reaction
[F#m]The scraping subject ruled by fe[D]ar
[A]Told me whiskey [E]works better tha[Bm]n beer
[F#m]The judge is on vinyl, decisions[D] are final
[A]And nobody gets [E]a reprie[Bm]ve
[F#m]And every wave is tidal [D]
[A]If you hang arou[E]nd, you're going[Bm] to get wet
[F#m]I can't prepare for death any mo[D]re than I alread[A]y have  [E]        [Bm]
[F#m]All you can do now is watch the [D]shells
[A]The game looks e[E]asy, that's why [Bm]it sells

[A]Frustrated fireworks [F#m]inside your head
[F#m]Are going to stand and deliver t[D]alk instead
[A]The method acting tha[F#m]t pays my bills
[F#m]Keeps the fat man feeding in Bev[D]erly Hills
[A]I got a heavy metal m[F#m]outh that hurls obscenity
[F#m]And I get my check from the tras[D]h treasury
[A]Because I took my own[F#m] insides out

[F#m]It don't matter 'cos I have no s[D]ex life
[A]And all I want t[E]o do now is inje[Bm]ct my ex-wife
[F#m]I've seen the movie and [D]I know what happ[A]ens     [E]        [Bm]
[F#m]It's Christmas time and the need[D]les on the tree
[A]A skinny Santa i[E]s bringing somet[Bm]hing to me
[F#m]His voice is overwhelming but hi[D]s speech is slurred
[A]And I only under[E]stand every othe[Bm]r word
[A]Open your parachute a[F#m]nd grab your gun
[F#m]Falling down like an omen, a set[D]ting sun
[A]Read the part and ret[F#m]urn at five
[F#m]It's a Hell of a role if you can[D] keep it alive
[A]But I don't care if I[F#m] fuck up, I'm going on a date
[F#m]With a rich white lady, ain't li[D]fe great?
[A]Give me one good reas[F#m]on not to do it (Because we love you)
[F#m]So do it[D]
[A]  [E]  [Bm]                                 
[F#m]This is the place where time rev[D]erses
[A]Dead men talk to[E] all the pretty [Bm]nurses
[F#m]Instruments shine on a silver tr[D]ay
[A]Don't let me get[E] carried away   [A]
[A]Don't let me get[E] carried away   [A]
[A]Don't let me get[E] carried away.  [Bm]
