IN AN OPEN FIELD AT DUSK
TO FOOTFALLS I AWOKE
MARCHING ANTS ACROSS MY TEMPLES, OH


G
THEIR FEET HAD NO INTENTION
THEY FOLLOWED SOME MAGNETIC DRUM
Em                 Asus2  Em
PRISONERS OF THEIR DESTINATION


VERSE 1:

G
FROM THE SLATS OF THE FACTORY COME
WHERE ONCE THEY DID MAKE RAILS
OLD DEATH'S PECULIAR SONGS
          C          Am
HE DIDN'T KNOW I WAS LISTENING

VERSE 2:

G
SO HE CROWED OUT NICE AND LONG
                       Am             G*
TO THE SPIDERS AND THE LUMBER AND THE DUST
       Am                D           Em
OF HIS CONQUESTS AND HIS HUNGER, HIS LUST

VERSE 3:

G
I HEARD HIS FEET REJOICE
I HEARD HIM TAP HIS CANE
   Am
AS IF HE HAD HIS OWN REVIEW
                D
ON STAGE AT THE ATHENAEUM

VERSE 4:

  Em                       G*
I CAUGHT HIS WORDS WITH MY OPEN MOUTH
  Em                    G*
I GAGGED AND CHOKED AND SPIT THEM OUT
  Em                  G*
I HEARD HIM TURN AS HE DID HEAR
   C              Am
MY TINY HEARTBEAT IN HIS EAR
Em
I WAS ALREADY RUNNING
I HEARD HIM COMING


VERSE 5:

Em                     G*
SHRAPNEL SPITTING FROM HIS WHEELS
Em                     G*
HIS SCYTHING ARMS RAKE FOR MY HEELS
Em                     G*
I DOVE AND ROLLED AND HID MY FACE
      Am               Em
AND I SAID THESE MAGIC WORDS:

CHORUS:

Am                    C                  Em
"MY DOVE IS HOME, HER BREAST IS WARM, MY DOVE IS HOME"

G
I SAID THESE MAGIC WORDS AND
     Am
FELL DOWN, DOWN, THE ANTHILL
Em
FOR DAYS

Am                    C                  Em
"MY DOVE IS HOME, HER BREAST IS WARM, MY DOVE IS HOME"
Am                    C                  Em
"MY DOVE IS HOME, HER BREAST IS WARM, MY DOVE IS HOME"
