Intro- A (Electric)

Verse 1

A        D                     Bm                G              
One holy ghost for a home made girl in a green t-shirt that read
  D                    E
I quote, "What price damnation now?"
A                 D                        Bm                     G
In the schools of thought and the halls of state with the leap of faith
          D                     E        D             E
the loose translation must have lost her, it must have cost her..


Chorus 1

      Bm          G             D                   A             
to go back..to the civilization caught between here and the real one
Bm          G          E            G, A (x4)
just to say what you'd begun to say once. 


Interlude A, D, Bm, G, D, E


Verse 2

A           D                            Bm                       G
We've been enrolled in the wrong schools all through the pride of fall,
            D           E
the falling price of education
A                  D                    Bm                    G
There have been no clues in the last few days, in the steps retraced,
    D                   E         D            E
the education must have cost her. It must have caused her...


Chorus 2

      Bm          G            D                   A
to go back to the civilization caught between here, and the real one
Bm          G          E            G, A (x4)
just to say what you'd begun to say once..

It must have lost her, yeah.....!) (x2)
