E         C
Oh comely 
                                      E
I will be with you when you lose your breath
                C                                      E
Chasing the only meaningful memory you thought you had left
                                   C
With some pretty bright and bubbly terrible scene
                                 E
That was doing her thing on your chest
                C
But oh comely 
                                    G
It isn't as pretty as you'd like to guess                                     
In your memory you're drunk on your awe to me
   C                          E
It doesn't mean anything at all

           C
Oh comely
                                    E
All of your friends are letting you blow
                   C
Bristling and ugly
                                          E
Bursting with fruits falling out from the holes
                                 C
Of some pretty bright and bubbly friend 
                                                E
You could need to say comforting things in your ear
                 C
But oh comely 
                                                G
There isn't such one friend that you could find here
Standing next to me
He's only my enemy 
     C                            
I'll crush him with everything I own
G
say what you want to say
                           C
hang for your hollow ways, moving your mouth 
                          E         C  D  G  D  G  D  G  D  E
to pull out all your miracles away for me


E  
Your father made fetuses 
With flesh licking ladies 
      C
While you and your mother 
Were asleep in the trailer park
E   
Thunderous sparks from the dark of the stadiums
    C
The music and medicine you needed for comforting
   E
So make all your fat fleshy fingers to moving
    C
And pluck all your silly strings 
And bend all your notes for me
E
Soft silly music is meaningful magical
    C
The movements were beautiful
All in your ovaries
E
All of them milking with green fleshy flowers
      C
While powerful pistons were sugary sweet machines
E
Smelling of semen all under the garden
    C                                      
Was all you were needing when you still believed in me

E   C
(Da da da part)


E   
I know they buried her body with others
    C
Her sister and mother and 500 families 
    E
And will she remember me 50 years later
  C        
I wished I could save her in some sort of time machine
E
Know all your enemies 
   C
We know who are enemies are

Am  E  (x3)

Am
Goldaline my dear                       
We will fold and freeze together
E
Far away from here                   
There is sun and spring and green forever 
    Am
But now we move to feel
For ourselves inside some stranger's stomach
E
Place your body here
                                         Am  E                  
Let your skin begin to blend itself with mine

Am             E
de de de de de la da da da
