How To Play

Intro: Dm-- x8
 
 
Verse 1:
Am       C     Dm
  City of blue tile
Am       C    Dm
  Figure in Ceramics
Am      C        Dm
  Where we reach out
Am         C
  Grab for Porce-
 
 
Chorus 1:
 Dm       Am  Bb         Dm
-lain But it's too fragile to hold
       Am       Bb     Dm
And it shatters in our hands
            Am
In time the seasons will 
Bb         Dm
seal these shards
          Am
Into the slits that 
  Bb        Dm
denote your wrists
             Bb
Death is the answer
        Am
To calculations composed
   Bb                   Dm
of motions that are the same
                  Bb
And secret and different
          Am
A missing alphabet 
       Bb
with a message for us

     Dm
When people die
(DIE,DIE!)
            Am
They take a piece 
   C       Dm
of us with them
(PEOPLE DIE AND DIE!)
             Am
And holes in clouds 
    Bb      Dm
are minutes passing
(DIE AND DIE!)
             Am
Rescind this line
    C       Dm
and several ties
(PEOPLE DIE AND
DIE EVERYDAY!)
              Am
The skyline unfolds 
     C
into expla-
 
 
Chorus 2:
   Dm
-nation That sometimes 
Bb
words give up
    Am
And silently walk off the 
Bb
edge the edge of the page
    Dm                 Bb
And here the cry opens up 
            Am
reveals the word inside
    Bb                Dm
The crack in the porcelain
    Bb              Am
The crack in the porcelain
    Bb                Dm(hold)
The crack in the porcelain
