 GBmAm
 At the center of the world there's a statue of a girl
 CDG
She is standing near a well with a bucket bare and dry
 BmAm
I went and looked her in the eyes and she turned me into sand
 CDG
This clumsy form that I despise, it scattered easy in her hand

 BmAm
It came to rest upon a beach with a million others there
 CDG
We sat and waited for the sea to stretch out so that we could disappear
 BmAm
Into the endlessness of blue into the horror of the truth
 CDEm
See, we are far less than we knew, yeah, we are far less than we knew

 EmC
 But we knew what we could taste
 Em
 Girls found honey to drench our hands
 B
The men cut marble to mark our graves

 B
 Said we'll need something to

(mostly the lower notes for this part)

 G
 remind us of
 B
All the sweetness that has passed through us
 Em
The priests dressed children for a choir
 B
But found no joy in what was sung

 BCDDG
 The funeral had begun

 GBmAm
 In the middle of the day when you drive home to your place
 CDG
From that job that makes you sleep back to the thoughts that keep you awake
 Am
Long after night has come to claim any light that still remains
 CD
In the corner of the frame           

(lower notes again for this part)

 G
that you put around her face

 Bm
Two pills just weren't enough
 Am
The alarm clock's going off but you're not waking up
 CD
This isnt happening happening happening happening happening
 G
It is
