A Flatline Blur  Kevin Devine

A Flatline Blur, by Kevin Devine
Standard Tuning, the strumming is pretty easy... its a fun song, I think/hope I got most of it right
[C]My[Em] fr[Am]iends are working on avoiding me
So when we meet I keep my mouth real busy
Talk out my nervous energy
It never works
I throw darts at the wall and get sloppy
[C/G]But [Am]it'[G]s alright now
If I seem surprised, it's just a joke I'm trying out
But if it floats, I guess I'll keep it around
[C]A [Em]wom[Am]an gestures lazily
Through the hoods in my eyes I see her shaking her jewelry
It casts a perfect light on me
I feel moved and that's strange
But lately, I've been acting really strangely
[C/G]So i[Am]t's[G] alright now
I'm keeping distracted to blunt my reactions
And anyhow
You think less when there's less for you to think about
[C](b[Em]ass[Am] run on A string, 0--2--3)
Dm Em (high) Am (same bass run)
A paralyzed puppet sits stiff in the window
[F]Gr[G]in[C]di[C7]ng his teeth and playing piano
[F]All his [G]songs bleed together in a [C]flat[Em]line [Am]blur
A broken litany of worthless words
Creating space while your drinks get served
I know it gets on your [G]nerves
Just try to pretend like it's not [C]work[Em] [Am]
A little denial never hurts
