Blood from a stone
Water from wine.
Born under earplay design.
A stroke of bad luck,
wrong place, wrong time.
This flyer is out of the lime.
[D]The story is a sad one, [G]told many [Em]times.
[D]The story of my life in [G]trying [Em]times.
[D]Just add water, [G]stir in [Em]lime.
[D]How the west was won and where it [A]got us.
Canary got trapped, the uranium mine.
A stroke of bad luck, now the bird has died.
a marker to mark where my tears run dry.
I cross it, bless it, alkali.
[D]The story is a sad one, [G]told many [Em]times.
[D]The story of my life in [G]trying [Em]times.
[D]Just add water, [G]stir in [Em]lime.
[D]How the west was won and where it [A]got us.
I didn't wear glasses cause I thought it might rain.
Now I can't see anything.
I made a mistake, chalked it up to design.
I cracked through time, space, Godless and dry.
I point my nose to the northern star,
watch the decline from a hazy distance.
[D]The story is a sad one, [G]told many [Em]times.
[D]The story of my life in [G]trying [Em]times.
[D]Just add water, [G]stir in [Em]lime.
[D]How the west was won and where it [A]got us.
