King's Crossing  Elliott Smith

Elliott Smith
Figure 8
Capo 3rd Fret

The King's crossing was the main attraction
Dominoes falling in a chain reaction
The scr*ping subject ruled by fear told me
Whiskey works better than beer
The judge is on vinyl, decisions aren't final
And nobody gets a reprieve
And every wave is tidal
If you hang around you're going to get wet

I can't prepare for death any more than I already have[C] [G] [Dm]
[Am]All you can do now is [F]watch the shelves
The [C]game looks [G]easy, that's [Dm]why it sells
[C]Frustrated fireworks [B/Am]inside your head
Are going [Am]to stand and del[G/Am]iver [F]dark instead
[C]The method acting that [B/Am]pays my bills
Keeps the [Am]fat man feedin[G/Am]g in [F]Beverly Hills
[C]I got a heavy metal mouth, it [B/Am]hurls obscenity
And I get [Am]my check from[G/Am] the [F]trash treasury
[C]Because I took my own insides [B/Am]out
[Am]It don't matter cause I [F]have no sex life
And [C]all I wanna do [G]now is [Dm]inject my ex-wife
[Am]I've seen the movie
And I [F]know what happens[C] [G] [Dm]
[Am]It's Christmas time
And the [F]needle's on the tree
A [C]skinny Santa is [G]bringing [Dm]something to me
[Am]His voice is overwhelming
But his [F]speech is slurred
And I [C]only [G]understand [C]every other [F]word
Open your parachute and grab your gun
Float down like an omen, a setting sun
Read the part and return at five
It's a hell of a role if you can keep it alive
But I don't care if I f**k up
I'm going on a date
With a rich white lady
Ain't life great?
Gi'me one good reason not to do it
(Because I love you)
So do it.
This is the place where time reverses
And dead men talk to all the pretty nurses
Instruments shine on a silver tray
[C]Don't let me get [G]carried away
[C]Don't let me get [G]carried away
[C]Don't let me be [G]carried [Dm]away
