Intro: Am F (x2) G

C
  When our mouths are filled
     F
with uninvited tongues of others
C
  And the strays are pining
F
for their unrequited mothers
C                             G
  Milk that sours is promptly spat
                      Am              F
Light will fill our eyes like cats

C                       F
  And they shall enter from the back
                                       C
With spears and scepters and squirming sacks
                                 G
Scribs and tangles between their ears
                             Am
Faceless scrumbled charcoal smears
      F
...oh dear...

Through the coppice and the chaparral
The thickets thick with mold
The bracken and the brier
                    Am    F   Am   F
Catchweed into the fold

Light will fill our eyes like ...cats
