Aimless Desire / New Model Army (Strange Brotherhood)

: G Em : (guitar, effects)
[G] [Em] [Bb] [Em]  
(Verse 1)
G(III) Em Bb Em
I was working shift on the six o'clock, quiet in the pale dawn.
Found a bird caught in the machinery -
set it [Bb]free and watched it [Em]go . . .
G(III) Em Bb C
Quit the job that very day, and flew into the sky
just [D]following after this [Em]aimless [D]desire,
the [Em]awful [D]desire, the [Em]aimless [D]desire, [Em]worthless [D]desire...
(Verse 2)
Now I've found causes and I've found families,
but nothing ever lasts;
I've known people I'd die for - if only they had asked.
Where I'm from is not my home, and neither's where I'm bound;
Just following after this aimless desire - worthless desire . . .
(Verse 3)
So tonight, beneath the bridge where the fires burn,
God . . . take the freedom back, deliver me
from the aimless desire, the worthless desire . . .
And chimera she waits, and I have still got this hole in me;
still got this hole inside of me . . .
