Cm               Gm
All the rowboats in the paintings
Fm
  They keep trying to row away


Cm                 Gm
And the captains ' worried faces
Fm
 Stay contorted and staring at the waves


Cm                   Gm
They'll keep hanging in their gold frames
Fm
  For forever, forever and a day


Cm               Gm
All the rowboats in the oil paintings
Fm
  They keep trying to row away, row away


Cm                   Gm
Hear them whispering French and German
Fm
  Dutch, Italian, and Latin


Cm                    Gm
When no one's looking I touch a sculpture
Fm
 Marble, cold, and soft as satin


Cm                   Gm
But the most special are the most lonely
Fm
  God, i pity the violins


Cm               Gm
In glass coffins they keep coughing
Fm
  They've forgotten, forgotten how to sing



Cm Gm                 Fm
      La La La La La
                 Fm
La La La La La La



Cm                        Gm
First there's lights out, then there's lock up
Fm
  Masterpieces serving maximum sentences


Cm                   Gm
It's their own fault for being timeless
Fm
 There's a price you pay and a consequence


Cm                 Gm
All the galleries, the museums
Fm
 Here's your ticket, welcome to the tombs


Cm                  Gm
They're just public mausoleums
Fm
  The living dead fill every room
