(Intro)  

 Em 


(Verse)

          Em Am 
Bring me birds with broken wings, Men with all the answers,
 B Em 
People who have killed,Give me incurable cancers.
           Em Am 
Bring me creatures baked in oil, Give me disregard for doubt,
 B Em 
Street lights shine on broken Roads where no one is about.
              Em Am 
I want that hopeless dream depression, Punishments without a cause,
          B Em 
Give me impotent obsession, And disregard for laws.
            Em Am  
I want the trees in single file, Bring the corpse of something rare,
         B Em 
Show me children who are sinners, Show me mounds of human hair.


(Chorus)

 Am Em 
I climbed up the mountain just to kill my son,
 Am Em 
An angel tried to stop me with a ram,
              Am Em 
Well he said “your mind’s infected”, But I said “you lack perspective”,
 B 
You gotta walk the bottom if you wanna see the top,


 Em Am B Em 
La da da da, La da da da, La da da da da da da da da da  
 Em Am B Em 
La da da da, La da da da, La da da da da da da da da da  



(Verse)

         Em Am 
Give me poison I can swim in, Water I can’t drink,
  B Em 
Wheels that won’t stop spinning, Teach my children not to think.
             Em Am 
I want the fruit that tastes like nothing, And two thumbs for every crook,
          B Em 
Give me lessons without questions, Mild the days the books.
        Em Am 
Give me metaphors unraveled, Poetry defined,
             B Em 
Bring me the head of Dionysius, But please don’t spill out the wine.
          Em Am 
Trade the future for the present, Trade me ashes for my history,
         B Em 
I don’t need to look inside,I know the answer to the mystery.

(Ends with this harmonic:)

 Em Am B Em 
La da da da, La da da da, La da da da da da da da da da  
 Em Am B Em 
La da da da, La da da da, La da da da da da da da da da  


(Bridge)

 C Em 
Oh I know they call me crazy,
 C Em 
But there will be no turning back,
 Am Em 
I don’t care if things get ugly.
 B 
Once the word of god is spoken,
 B 
There’s no way to take it back,
