Oh Comely

Neutral Milk Hotel

 EC
 Oh comely  
 E
I will be with you when you lose your breath
 CE
Chasing the only meaningful memory you thought you had left
 C
With some pretty bright and bubbly terrible scene
 E
That was doing her thing on your chest
 C
But oh comely    
 G
It isn't as pretty as you'd like to guess
In your memory you're drunk on your artery (???)
 CE
It doesn't mean anything at all

 C
Oh comely   
 E
All of your friends are letting you blow
 C
Bristling and ugly  
 E
Bursting with fruits falling out from the holes
 C
Of some pretty bright and bubbly friend
 E
You could need to say comforting things in your ear
 C
But oh comely     
 G
There isn't such one friend that you could find here
Standing next to me
He's only my enemy
 C
I'll crush him with everything I own
 G
 say what you want to say
 C
and painful your always moving your mouth
 ECDGDGDGDE
to pull out all your miracles away for me                    

 E
 Your father made fetuses
With flesh licking ladies
 C
While you and your mother
Were asleep in the trailer park
 E
 Thunderous sparks from the dark of the stadiums
 C
The music and medicine you needed for comforting
 E
So make all your fat fleshy fingers to moving
 C
And pluck all your silly strings
And bend all your notes for me
 E
 Soft silly music is meaningful magical

 C
The movements were beautiful
All in your ovaries
 E
 All of them milking with green fleshy flowers
 C
While powerful pistons were sugary sweet machines
 E
 Smelling of semen all under the garden
 C
Was all you were needing when you still believed in me

 EC
 (Da da da part)

 E
 I know they buried her body with others
 C
Her sister and mother and 500 families
 E
And will she remember me 50 years later
 C
wished I could save her in some sort of time machine
 E
 Know all your enemies
 C
We know who are enemies are

Am E (x3)

 Am
 Goldaline my dear
We will fold and freeze together
 E
 Far away from here
There is sun and spring and green forever
 Am
But now we move to feel
For ourselves inside some stranger's stomach
 E
 Place your body here
 AmE
Let your skin begin to blend itself with mine 

 AmE
 de de de de de la da da da
