Fighting in a Sack  The Shins

Just last night I [D]woke from [G]some un[F]conscionable dream
and it [D]nailed to my [G]forehead a[C]gain
to [D]keep this boat a[G]float
there are t[F]hings you can't afford to know
so I [D]save all my [G]breath for the [C]sails
But you'll [Bm]find those [C]lingering [D]voices
are just yo[Em]ur ego's at[D]tepmt to make it all
cl[G]ean and nice and make a mo[A]ron out of you
walking a b[Bm]ridge with we[C]akening ca[D]bles
hu[Em]ddled up in fear an[D]d hate because we know o[G]ur fate
and its a lot to p[A]ut us through
[G] [Bm]  
[bum] [bum] [bum] [bum] [bum] [bum] [bum] [bum] [bum]  
Most ideas turn into [D]dust as t[G]here are f[F]ew
in which we all can trust
haven't you noticed [D]i've been [G]sheddin[C]g all of mine?
so lets abandon th[D]at track
a[G]nd leave o[F]ur fathers fighting in a sack
cause we're way t[D]oo wise-as[G]sed for t[C]hat
You might fin[Bm]d some fools a[C]t your d[D]oorstep
h[Em]ustling the late[D]st changes to the book th[G]ats the strangest
in an att[A]empt to multipy
marione[Bm]ttes on we[C]akening ca[D]bles
hu[Em]ddled up wit[D]h fear and hate because they know th[G]eir fate
and its a lot to p[A]ut them through
[G] [A] [Em]  
[bum] [bum] [bum] [bum] [bum] [bum] [bum] [bum] [bum]  
We've taken on a cl[D]imb[Em]
and its long enough to put the be[D]st of them on our ba[A]cks[Em]
walking up a sl[D]ide[Em]
and there are those we know who'd h[D]ave us
five miles o[A]ff the t[Em]rack
[G] [A] [G] [A]  
[bum] [bum] [bum] [bum] [bum] [bum] [bum] [bum] [bum]  
[G] [Bm] [D]  
[bum] [bum] [bum] [bum] [bum] [bum] [bum] [bum] [bum]
