Leave  The Tragically Hip



[D]'Do you mean the attack is routine?'
A [E]bird asked of a [B]bird
'In [D]this context, a concave nest,
[E]How do we learn to [B]hurt?'
D, E, B
[D]'Do you mean there's no variation?'
Watching [E]a dog charge a [B]flock of [D]birds
Exploding in congregation
[E]'Why plan; when we [B]stop?'
[D]'I dunno... but why suppose
It's [E]not the way it should [B]be?
When you can[D] fly above
The great waiting list,'
As the [E]crow implies,
'We [B]won't be missed,
We can [D]leave.' [E]
G, D, F#m, G
[A]It's a routine flight for this bird tonight
There's more worms than earth in the afterlife
Where the blind feed the blind,
Whispering things like '[F#m]On the money' [G]and 'Bullseye'
[A]She picks up the little leaves
Where human wrecks are left to seed
Left to repaint their deities
And [F#m]plaster away at the[G]ir villainies
Where there's [E]love, there'[B]s hope
'And do [D]you hope those earthbound poets
Could [E]learn to sing as good as [B]us?
[D]So we can sit back and en[E]joy our illusions
[B]And our quietus?'
'Well [D]I don't know... but why suppose
It's [E]not the way it should [B]be?
When you can [D]squawk
And wait for word from above
And [E]change yourself into [B]something you love
When you [D]leave?' [E]
