Pendulum Swinger

Indigo Girls

G  F#------------C9  G

I meet you for coffee
 We get together periodically 
G       F#----------C9          G

I got a bad case I can't shake off of me
 The fevered walking round wondering how it ought to be
 You work in the system
Em      F#--------C9               Dsus D

You see possibilities and your glistening
 Eyes show the hell you're gonna give 'em
When they back off the mic for once and give it to a woman

I dream like a mad one
Brutal fantasies I catch as catch can
I'm a psychic and a laywoman
I see love and I like to make it happen
What we get from your war walk
Ticker of the nation breaking down like a bad clock
I want the pendulum to swing again
So that all your mighty mandate was just spitting in the wind

 It doesn't come by the bullwhip
It's not persuaded with your hands on your hips
 Not the company of gunslingers
The epicenter love is the pendulum swinger
 She is she is she is

It's fine about the old scroll Sanskrit
Gnostic gospels the da vinci code a smash hit
Aren't we dying just to read it and relate
Too hard just to go by a blind faith
But they left out the sisters
Praying to a father god so long I really missed her
The goddess of benevolence
You should listen to your mama if you have a lick of sense left

Em                     F#----------C9            G         F#-

Pushed under by the main press, buried under a code of dress
 Relegated by the Vatican
But you can't keep a spirit down that wants to get up again

If we're a drop in the bucket
With just enough science to keep from saying fuck it
Until the last drop of sun burns its sweet light
Plenty revolutions left until we get this thing right
