Rearviewmirror Guitar Chords & Lyrics
[Intro]
A
 
[Verse]
A
I took a drive today, Time to emancipate
Bm                                A
I guess it was the beatings made me wise
Bm                                        A
But I'm not about to give thanks, or apologize
 
[Chorus]
Bm                   G
I couldn't breathe, holdin' me down
F#m              Em   F#   G
Hand on my face,         pushed to the ground
Bm              G
Enmity gaged, united by fear
F#m               Em   F#  G                   A
Forced to endure          what I could not forgive...
 
[Verse]
A
I seem to look away, Wounds in the mirror waved
Bm                           A
It wasn't my surface most defiled
 
[Chorus]
Bm                  G
Head at your feet, fool to your crown
F#m               Em  F#  G
Fist on my plate,          swallowed it down
Bm              G
Enmity gaged, united by fear
F#m              Em  F#  G                   A
Tried to endure           what I could not forgive
 
A
 
[Bridge]
Bm
Saw things, saw things
A
Saw things, saw things
Bm
Clearer, clearer
A
Once you, were in my... 
Bm               G
Rearviewmirror...  
F#m            Em  F#  G
I gather speed          from you fucking with me
Bm                 G
Once and for all  I'm far away, 
F#m             Em  F#  G
I hardly believe         finally the shades...
Bm     A     Bm   A
Are raised...hey...
 
[Outro]
Bm                            A
Saw things so much clearer   Once you, once you...  Rearviewmirror
Bm                            A
Saw things so much clearer   Once you, once you...  Rearviewmirror
Bm                            A
Saw things so much clearer   Once you, once you...  Rearviewmirror
Bm                            A
Saw things so much clearer   Once you...oh yeah...

Given To Fly

Given To Fly Guitar Chords & Lyrics
[Verse 1]
 
G
he could have turned in...turned in..but he turned out
                                                         D
a bad time, nothing could save him
G
alone in a corridor, waiting, locked out
                                                D
he got up out of their way, ran for hundreds of miles
G
he made it to the ocean, had a smoke and a tea
                                         D
the wind rose up, set him down on his knees
 
G
A wave came crashin' like a fist to the jaw
                                         D
delivered him.. wings high, look at him now
G
arms wide open with the sea as he's flung
                 D
oh how...ohhhh...
 
 
[Chorus]
 
   C9   Mute   C9 C9/B G (repeat)    G   D
he is flyin...ohhh....high....whyyy....ohhhh.....
 
 
[Verse 2]
 
G
he floated back down cause he wanted to share
                                        D
this key to the locks on the chains he saw everywhere...
G
but first he was stripped, and then he was stabbed
 
by a faceless man, the fuckers
   D
he still stands...
 
G
and he still gives his love, he just gives it away
                                  D
the love he receives is the love that is saved
G
and sometimes is seen a strange spot in the sky...
                                        D
 
A HUMAN BEING THAT WAS GIVEN TO FLY
 
   C9   Mute   C9 C9/B G (repeat)    G   D
he is flyin...ohhh....high....whyyy....ohhhh.....

  Em - Dsus4 - D
 
                Em       D          Em     D
I'll swallow poison, until I grow immune

I will scream my lungs out till it fills this room

Tell him, take no more she practices her speech

Pretends to sleep as he looks her over

Swears she knew it now she swears he's gone

G       G4     G      G4     G      G4     G      G4
Alone, listless. Breakfast table in an otherwise empty room.
G       G4     G      G4     G      G4     G      G4
Young girl, violence. Center of her own attention.

The mother reads aloud, child tries to understand it.
G       G4
Tries to make her proud.

The shades go down. It's in her head.
                Em7     Em6            Em7    Em6
Painted room. Can't deny there's something wrong.

Don't call me daughter. Not fit to.

[Intro]
C Am  G Am  F    (x2)
 
[Verse]
C            Am G           Am     F
Once divided,    nothing left to subtract
C                     Am G       Am      F
Some words when spoken    can't be taken back
C               Am     G          Am         F
Walks on his own   with thoughts he can't help thinking
C              Am             G        Am         F       Am (barred, 10th fret)
Future's above,     but in the past he's slow and sinking
F                            G            F               Am F  G
Caught a bolt of lightning,    cursed the day he let it go

She once believed   in every story he had to tell
C                     Am  G       Am      F
One day she stiffened,     took the other side
C           Am           G          Am            F
Empty stares    from each corner of a shared prison cell
C                Am       G     Am       F        Am (barred, 10th fret)
One just escapes,    one's left inside the well
F                   G         F               Am   F             G
And he who forgets    will be destined to remember   oh  oh  oh  oh
 
[Chorus]
C               F  G
Nothingman,      nothingman
C                    F    G
Isn't it something?  Nothingman

                    F   Am             F      G  Am (barred, 10th fret)
Oh, she won't feed him,    after he's flown away
  F              G      F              G F
Oh, into the sun, yeah into the sun
F                    G
Burn, burn, burn  burn
 
[Chorus]
C              F  G
Nothingman,      nothingman
C                   F    G
Isn't it something?  Nothingman

I seem to recognize your face

Haunting familiar, yet I cant seem to place it

Cannot find the candle of thought to light your name

Lifetimes are catchin' up with me

All these changes taking place

But no-one’s ever taken me

Memories, like fingerprints are slowly raising
D       Cadd9      G             Cadd9  G
Me, you wouldn't recall, for I'm not my former
D           Cadd9     G              Cadd9   G
It's hard when you're stuck upon the shelf
 
 
[Pre-Chorus]
 
C            A               C
I changed by not changing at all
      A                C
Small town predicts my fate
   A                       Em
Perhaps that's what no one wants to see
 
 
[Bridge]
 
D      Cadd9   G           Cadd9    G
I just want to scream, "hello!"
D  Cadd9     G                   Cadd9         G
My god, it's been so long, never dreamed you'd return
D       Cadd9    G       Cadd9  G
But now here you are and here I am
D          Cadd9         G    Cadd9   G
Hearts and thoughts they fade away
 
[Chorus]
D          Cadd9         G     Cadd9 G
Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away
D          Cadd9         G     Cadd9 G
Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away
D          Cadd9         G     Cadd9 G
Hearts and thoughts they fade, away

Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away (3x fade out)

Em Em/B Em
 
[Verse]
G                                    C
Seven o'clock in the morning, got a message from afar
       G/B                          C
Down under an oasis where there are dreams still being born
     G                              C
And summer spoke to winter relaying all encouraging words
       G/B                        C
And I was fully grateful mutant messages were heard
 
G                                 C
Moved on from my despondency and left it in the bed
      G/B                                  C
Do I leave it there still sleeping or maybe kill it better yet?
     G                                  C
For this is no time for depression or self indulgent hesitance
        G/B                         C                     G   C
This fucked-up situation calls for all hands, hands on deck
 
G                                C
Freedom is as freedom does and freedom is a verb
        G/B                                   C
They giveth and they taketh and you fight to keep that what you've earned
   G                             C
We saw the destination, got so close before its turned
         G/B                         C                G   C
Swim sideways from this undertow and do not be deterred
 
[Chorus]
A                              Em
 Floodlight dreams go drifting past
G                          D
 All the lives we could've had
A                        Em
 Distant loves floating above
G                                D
 Close these eyes. They've seen enough

[Verse]
G                                          C
Caught the butterfly, broke its wing then put it on display
         G/B                             C
Stripped of all its beauty once it could not fly high away
G                                C
Still alive like a passer-by overdosed on gamma rays
      G/B                         C               G   C
Another "God's" creation destined to be thrown away
 
G                                 C
Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse they forged the north and west
          G/B                        C
Then you get Sitting Bullshit as our sitting president
 G                              C
Talking to his mirror, whats he say, what's it say back?
      G/B                       C                G   C
A tragedy of errors, who'll be last to have a laugh?
 
[Chorus]
A                              Em
 His best days gone, hard to admit
G                                       D
 Throwing angry punches with nothing to hit
A                                    Em
 Luminous thoughts were once all he had
Em                       D
 Fading lights, lost eloquence
A                                   Em
 There's still a fire in the engine room
G                            D
 Knows relief will be coming soon

Dance Of The Clairvoyants

Dance Of The Clairvoyants Guitar Chords & Lyrics
[Intro]
F#m D F#m D Bm
 
[Verse 1]
F#m
Confusing is,... To commotion
D
What love is,... To our devotion
F#m
Imperceptibly big, big as the ocean
D            Bm
And equally hard to control
 
F#m
So save your predictions
 
And burn your assumptions
D
Love is friction
 
Ripe for comfort
F#m
Endless equations
 
And tugging persuasions
D
Doors open up
Bm
To interpretation
 
[Chorus]
    D                F#m
Expecting perfection
          E
Leaves a lot to ignore
          B
When the past is the present
          D
And the future's no more
      F#m
When every tomorrow
        E
Is the same as before
 
[Instrumental]
F#m D
 
[Verse 2]
F#m                                           D
The looser things get,... The tighter you become
                  Bm
The looser things get,... Tighter
 
F#m                                          D
There's not one man, who's greater than the sum
 
That's not a negative thought,
 
I'm positive, positive, positive
 
F#m
Falling down,... Not staying down
D                           Bm
Could've held me up, rather tear me down
 
Drown in the river
 
[Chorus]
    D                F#m
Expecting perfection
          E
Leaves a lot to endure
          B
When the past is the present
          D
And the future's no more
      F#m
When every tomorrow
        E
Is the same as before
 
[Verse 3]
Bm                            E        D
Numbers keep falling off the calendars floor
 Bm                           E      D
Stuck in our boxes, Windows open no more
          Bm
Coullecting up the forget-me-nots
        E                  D
Not recalling what they're for
        Bm
I'm in love with clairvoyants
               E           D
'Cause they're out of this world

At home drawing pictures of mountain tops, with him on top lemon yellow sun..
arms raised in a V, the dead lay in pools of marrom below..
Daddy didnt give attention to the fact that mommy didnt care
king Jeremy the wicked oh ruled his world...

Clearly I remember picking on the boy, seemed a harmless little f*ck
Uhh but we unleashed a lion, gnashed his teeth and bit the recess ladys breasts how
I forget, and he hit me with a surprise left
mmm my jaw left hurting, oh drop wide open
just like the day, oh like the day I've heard...
Daddy didnt give affection and the boy was something that mommy wouldnt ware
king Jeremy the wicked oh ruled his world...
