The Memo  Father John Misty

I'm gonna steal [C]some bedsheets
[F] [C]  
From an amputee
[C]I'm gonna mount em on a canvas
In the [D]middle of the galler[G]y
[F]I'm gonna tell everybod[E]y it was [Am]painted by a chimpan[D]zee
[Am]But just between you [D]me
G (single strum)
Here at the cultural low water mark
If it's fraud or art
They'll pay you to believe
[C]I'm gonna take five young dudes
[F]From white famili[C]es
[C]Gonna mount em on a billboard
In the [D]middle of the [G]country
[F]I'm gonna tell every[E]body they sing like [Am]angels with whiter [D]teeth
[Am]But just between you and [E]me
G (single strum)
They're just like the ones before
With their standards lower
Every concert goer will pay you to believe
[F]Caffeine in the morning, [C]alcohol at night
[F]Cameras to record you and mir[C]rors to recognize
And as the [Am]world is getting smaller
[D]Small things take up all your time
Narcissus [Am]would have had a field day if he [D]could have got online
And friends it's [G]not self-love that kills you
It's when those who [Am]hate you are [D]allowed
To sell you that [G]you're a glorious sh*t the entire [Am]world revolves ar[D]ound
And that you're the [G]eater, and not the eaten
But that your [Am]hunger will only [D]cease
If you come [G]binge on radiant blandness at the dis[Am]posable f[D]east
(All single strum for thus part)
Just [Am]quickly how would you [F]rate yourself
In terms of [Am]sex appeal and cultural si[F]gnificance
[Gm]Do you usually listen to [Gm]music like this
We can [Gm]recommend some similar artists
Are you [Gm]feeling depressed?
But your feedback's [F#]important
To [F]us
(Return to strumming pattern)
[C]Gonna buy myself a sports team
[F]And put em in a [C]pit
[C]Gonna wage the old crusade
[D]Against conscious[G]ness
[F]All I need is a couple [E]winners to get every [Am]loser to fight in [D]it
You keep the [Am]golden calf
I just need the bull[D]sh*t
[G]They won't just sell themselves into slavery
They'll get on their knees and pay you to believe
End on C
