The Mute  Radical Face

In standard tuning, lob a capo on the 6th fret. Ben is a half step down, so he'd
have his capo on 7th. All chords relative to capo.
Intro: G C (a few times with nice variants), then strum the G a bit going into the verse
[Em]Well, as a child I mostly [C]spoke inside my [G]head
[Em]I had conversations with the [C]clouds, the dogs, [G]the dead
[Em]And they thought my broken, that my [C]tongue was coated [G]lead
But I just [D]couldn't make my [C]words make sense to [Em]them
If you only [D]listen with your [C]ears... I can't get [G]in
[Em]And I spent my evenings pullin' [C]stars out of the [G]sky
[Em]And I'd arrange them on the [C]lawn where I would [G]lie
[Em]And in the wind I'd taste the [C]dreams of distant [G]lives
And I would [D]dress myself up [C]in them through the [Em]night
While my [D]folks would sleep in [C]separate beds... and wonder [G]why
( Tab from: )
Em C G x3
[D] [C] [Em]  
[D] [C] [D]  
[Em]And through them days I was a [C]ghost atop my [G]chair
[Em]My dad considered me a [C]cross he had to [G]bear
[Em]And in my head I'd sing [C]apologies and [G]stare
As my [D]mom would hang the [C]clothes across the [Em]line
And she would [D]try to keep the [C]empty... from her [G]eyes
[Em]So, then one afternoon I [C]dressed myself [G]alone
[Em]I packed my pillowcase with [C]everything I [G]owned
[Em]And in my head I said "[C]goodbye," then I was [G]gone
And I [D]set out on the [C]heels of the [Em]unknown
So my [D]folks could have a [C]new life of their [Em]own
So that [D]maybe I could [C]find someone
Who could [D]hear the only [C]words that I'd [G]known
Em C G x7
[D] [C] [Em]  
[D] [C]  
The song ends on that very contemplative D.
