[verse]
A                  D
foals in winter coats
                   Bm
white girls of the north
G             D
file past one five the one
             D
they are the fabled lambs
   E
of sunday ham
    Bm
the EHS norm
             A                        D
and they can float above the grass
              A
in circles if they tried
   G             D
a latent power I know they hide
             D
to keep some hope alive
       E                 Bm
that a girl like I could ever try
           A
could ever try

[chorus]
   F#m     D                 E
so we just skirt the hallway sides
                F#m
a phantom and a fly
F#         D                E
follow the lines and wonder why
there's no connection


[verse]
    A                     D
and week of rolling eyes
                         Bm
and cheap shots from the trite
          G                D
and we're off to Nemarca's porch again
        D                  E
another afternoon with the goat head tunes
    Bm
and pilfered booze
            A                           D
we wandered through your mama's house
                      A
and the milk from the window lights
       G               D
family portrait circa ninety-five
             D
this is that foreign land
         E
with the sprayed on tans
       Bm
and it all feels fine
              A
be it silk or slime


[chorus]
F#m          D               E
so when they tap our monday heads
                 F#m
two zombies walk in our stead
F#              D                      E
this town seems hardly worth our time
    F#m         D               E
and we'll no longer memorize or rhyme
             F#m
to far along in our climb
         F#            D             E
stepping over what now towers to the sky
with no connection

A        D       E      E
whoa wuh-oh wuh-oh
