Fm B repeat FmThru the rhythm of darkenedB times FmPainted black by knowlBedge crimes FmAnd repetitions from Bthis crime FmAnd steering valleys the sick definBe FmThat keeps the fabric that keeps you Bbind Fmand ties your hands and cloaks yourB mind FmBut on my stilts, I'm above Bthe slime

Fm B

CoFmme on,B well, if you can make the climb, but who am I? Who am IFm? BWho am IFm? FmMy stilts are sticks from the fields thaBt rise FmFrom the books that we had teach the same old lies B FmI felt the panic that batheBd the skies FmAnd the forms of laws of every sizeB FmAnd you know the teachers whine and make me drop out like flies B FmBut you know they teach you nonsense, but they can't blind your eyes B FmI feel the field is gold that torn off as thBe pride

Fm B

To the EvFmerestB standard that calms for pride, well where am I? Where Fmam I?B Where Fmam I?B

Am C

AmYou gobbled all the blessings that they caused you to digCest AmThey may be hard to swallow, but they keep your tongue depressed C AmYour scattered wills were born to pCressed AmSo when something slams yourC chest AmYou flutter about, you're sleek disCtressed AmAnd when you stop to ease yourC breast AmA scattered rim beast you're oCbsessed

Am C

Was Cfallin' thoughts of who's the best, but where are you?

Am C
