[C] [G] [F] [Fm]  

[C]The finches and sparrows build [G]nests in my chimney
what r[F]emains of the small flightless birds that you [Fm]failed to protect
[C]but their yolk isn't [G]easy in fact it's a [F]drag
as they're blowing through cornfields and [Fm]mountains of [C]rags
[C]all over the [G]suburbs across the great [F]lawns
crop-dusting gardens all over this [Am]town
[C]but nobody [G]cares when it gets in their [F]hair
[C]it gets in their [G]lungs as it floats through the [F]air
[C]it gets in the [G]food that they buy and pre[F]pare
but nobody [D7]cares when it gets in their [G]hair[F]
[F]across the great chasms and schisms and the sudden aneurisms
where the black ink will [C]drip across the [G]crespice of your [F]eyes
[F]and your teeth are worth more than you can spare-
-oh don't [C]tell me that it [G]just isn't [F]fair
[F]don't speak about the cycles of life 'cause your thoughts are so soft
C G F D7 G (fill 1)
I could cut 'em with a spork or a bride's kniii-i-fe
[F]and the wine made our [C]mouths [G]too [F]loose
[F]such a reckless choice of [C]words[G] [F]
[F]when you tell me that I'm [C]too "[G]abs[(F#)]truse"
I just thought it was a kind of [G]bird
(I swear)[(F#)] I just stood there
not saying a [F]word
not saying a [F]word
not saying a [D7]word[G]
