Intro:
D  Bb  G
D  Bb  C
D  F    A7

verse:
D                  Bb    G
        A cold and wet November dawn
D                 Bb            C
        And there are no barking sparrows
D             F                  A
        Just emptiness to dwell upon.

verse:
D                Bb   G
        I fell into a winter slide
D                 Bb             C                 D
        And ended up the kind of kid who goes down chutes too narrow
               F                   A
        Just eeking out my measley pies.

chorus:
    G         D          A        D
But I learned fast how to keep my head up 'cause I
G          D       F       A
Know there is this side of me that
G        D        A             D   
Wants to grab the yoke from the pilot and just
G       D            F      A7   
Fly the whole mess into the sea. 
              
verse:  
Another slow train to the coast
Some brand new gory art from way on high
I sink and then I swim all night.
        
verse:                   
D                   Bb       G  
        I watch the ice melt on the glass
D                 Bb             C       
        While the eloquent young pilgrims pass
D           F
        And leave behind their trail
C                       A          
Imploring us all not to fail.        
 
chorus:      
Of course I raised to gather courage from those
Lofty tales so tried and true but
If you're able I'd suggest it 'cause this
Modern thought can get the best of you.

middle:
Bm                  D                  G         A         G       A       Asus4 ///
        This rather simple epitaph can save your hide your falling mind
Bm                 D                             G    A       G        A     Asus4 ///
        Fate isn't what we're up against there's no design no flaws to find
        G    A       G        A  Asus4 ///
There's no design no flaws to find.

(verse chords over solo)

But I learned fast how to keep my head up 'cause I
Know I got this side of me that
Wants to grab the yoke from the pilot and just
Fly the whole mess into the sea.
