INTRO: |E  .  .  . |E  .  .  . |E  .  .  . |G  .  .  . |D  .  D2 . |D  .  G /F#|


E            G               D(2)
conversation pouring over my lips
            C2   G  /F#
black coffee drip drip
E                 G                    D(2)
i've been quoting someone you've never read
     C2        /B
am i over your head
C2                     D(4)
i would feel better if i understood me
C2                D(4)
what did i say oh i can't remember

CHORUS:
E                       D2   G            /F#
all that we've (he/she) said falls with a clatter
       E           D2          Cmaj7        B4
by the black silhouette of the dark twisted chatter
   E         D2     G           /F#
of poets and cynics girl taking orders
    E         D2       Cmaj7   D2
who never can find her pen
 (looks a lot like my sister/
 has a strange tatoo on the back of her neck)

contemplation swirling around my head
lock ticking tick tick
you tell me what nietzsche said
as he rolled out of bed god must be dead
if pain was the problem what was the answer
pray for a rescue or swear at the heavens

inspiration moves her onto the stage
microphone check check
she reads her thoughts from a ragged red book
turning blue in the face
i glance at the book i stare at the binding
i'm lost in the thread that is slowly unwinding
