Dm
Over prescribed
G                (bass : A B)
Under the mister
C         G/B
We had survived to
A7                  Dm
Turn on the history channel
                     G
And ask our esteemed panel
             C
Why are we alive
    G/B               A7
And here's how they replied
A7sus2-A7   Dm          Dsus2-Dm           G6
You're what happens when two substances collide
       Dm               G                Am
And by all accounts you really should've died

(orchestra : Am - Em9)
(electric guitar : E - Am)

CHORUS CHORDS + WHISTLING :
Am - C - Csus4 - C
Gm - F - E

Stretched out on the tarmac
Six miles south of North Platte
He can't stand to look back
At sixteen tons of Hazmat

              Am  
This is what goes
B7  E7       A   D   Dm     Gm  Dm  E       (Bass : E B Cb Bb A)
Undelivered, undelivered

(Over the CHORUS CHORDS):
It's a nervous tic motion of the head to the left   
It's a nervous tic motion of the head to the left 
(over what, the head to the left)
So exorcise your cells till you're bereft
'Cause it's a nervous tic motion of the head to the left
(of the - of the - to the)

(Am)

(CHORUS CHORDS + WHISTLING)

(Over the CHORUS CHORDS):
Splayed out on a bathmat
Six miles north of South Platte
And he just wants his life back
What's in that paper knapsack

It's what goes undelivered, undelivered

(Over the CHORUS CHORDS):
It's a nervous tic motion of the head to the left   
It's a nervous tic motion of the head

Dm
Over imbibed
G                 (BASS : B)
Under the mister
C           G/B
Barely alive we
A7                    Dm
Cover the blisters in flannel
                              G
Though the words we speak are banal
                    C
Not one of them's a lie
    G7              A7
Not one of them's a lie
 Dm
You're what happens when
                 G
Two substances collide
        Dm
And by all accounts
    G                Am
You really should've died.
