[C] [Am] [G] [F] [C] [Am]  
[F] [F]  
[C]So you don?t get to be a sa[Am]int
[G]Martyrs never last this lo[F]ng
[C]Guess I'll never be the o[Am]ne
[G]To defeat desire in s[F]ong
[F]Here's a marker
[G]Here's my naked s[C]kin
Our 'exh[F]ibit A'
[F]Put a small x[G] where I lost my w[C]ay
[C]All the actors broke their l[Am]egs
[G]And it?s to late to post[F]pone
[C]The producer?s getting h[Am]igh
[G]And the audience went ho[F]me
[C]Smile and take your awkward bo[Am]w
[G]Turn and stumble off the stag[F]e
[C]Let the rain be your a[Am]pplause
[G]Every encore sooth your r[F]age
[F]Squint with one eye
[G]Hum a show-tune wa[C]it
For your ri[F]ght to say
[F]oh that?s where you m[G]ust have lost your w[C]ay
[C] [Am] [G] [F]  
[C] [Am] [G] [F]  
[F]Megaphones in [G]helicopters squ[C]eal ?hey are you [F]okay??
[F]Searchlights circle,[G] where we lost our wa[C]y
[C]All our a[Am]ccidents were p[G]urposeful and felt[F]
[C]Stripped of pr[Am]ovidence or a[G]ny way to tell[F]
[C]But our int[Am]entions were in[G]tangible and sweet[F]
[C]Sick with si[Am]mple math and sh[G]y discoveries
[F]Piled up against our impending def[G]eat.
