What would you like to do?
[Verse 1]
Wont you lend your lungs to me
D Em
Mine are collapsing
Plant my feet and bitterly
D Em
Breathe up the time that's passing
D Em (D)
Breath I'll give and breath I'll take
D Em
And pray the day's not poison
Em D Em
Stand among the ones that live
Em D Em
In lonely indecision
The rest of the verses follow the same progression with variations/ repetitions of
the intro in between them.
[Verse 2]
Fingers walk the darkness down
Mind is on the midnight
Gather up the gold you've found
You fool it's only moonlight
And if you try to take it home
Your hands'll turn to butter
Better leave this dream alone
Try to find another
[Verse 3]
Salvation sat and crossed herself
And called the devil partner
Wisdom burned upon a shelf
Who'll kill the raging cancer?
Seal the river at its mouth
Take the water prisoner
Fill the sky with screams and cries
Bathe in fiery answer
[Verse 4]
Jesus was an only son
Love his only concept
Strangers cry in foreign tongues
And dirty up the doorstep
And I for one and you for two
Ain't got the time for outside
Just keep your injured looks to you
We'll tell the world we tried
