Young Shields  Casiotone for the Painfully Alone

there's a shield around us
[C]it's invisible & soundless
[Am]& we drink too much & fuck too soon
[Am]smoke cigarettes in rented rooms
[F]we quit our jobs & shoot the moon
[G]& cut our wrists & sleep til noon[CFC]
[C]there's a shield around us
[C]we're invincible & boundless
[Am]& we're on the run from I don't know
[Am]we're Patty Hearst & Squeaky Fromme
[F]asleep on subways far from home
[G]you'd think we'd never seen a comb[CFC]
[F]sent a letter to Mom & Dad
[F]Mom & Dad the money's running out[C]
[F]got a letter from Mom & Dad
[F]they didn't send me anything [C]
[C]there's a shield around us
[C]we are heady we are groundless
[Am]& we burn our friends & kill their names
[Am]build insecure & petty fames
[F]& tattoo things that we believe
[G]stars & skulls & hearts in half-sleeves[CFC]
[C]there's a shield around us
[C]tell me how is it you've found us
[Am]cause we hide our tracks & watch the ground
[Am]our footfalls they don't make a sound
[F]we've cursed the names of our hometowns
[G]we're compassless & nowhere bound[CFC]
[F]sent a letter to Mom & Dad
[F]Mom & Dad the money's running out[C]
[F]got a letter from Mom & Dad
[F]I swear to God they don't get me at all[C]
