Intro:
C#m E F#m A

C#m                       E
    So it started in your ovaries
  F#m
a stone, a seedling
    A       C#m
our bones entwined
                   E
a warning from the orderlies
  F#m
a bone's for bleeding (?)
           A        C#m
this would take its time
      E
Oh oh oh oh
      F#m   A
Ah ah ahhhh

So it all went down the telephone
and saw me clearly
all of nine years old
calmly cast in styrofoam
in my Tony Lamas
when the shock takes hold
Oh oh oh oh
Ah ah ahhhh

A               C#m
  Mom there are hurdles here
       Dmaj9          A
that I cannot seem to clear
              C#m
Dad there are demons round
G#
    I know I said that I

I said I'd be alright
  A      E      A      B5 C5 C#m
I lied I lied I lied I liiiiiiiiied
E F#m A

So fix your brood and belly now
get your fingers ringing
get your lungs unstayed
it'll eat you from the inside out
till it comes out screaming
till it all falls away
Oh oh oh oh
Ah ah ahhhh

Dad there are hurdles here
that I cannot seem to clear
Mom there are demons round
I know I said that I
said I'd be alright
I lied I lied I lied I lied
