Am7 - Am Am7 - Am
the sun came up above the strange white plain.
Am7 - Am Am7 Am
blood red flowers all wet with rain
C E Am7-Am Am7-Am
and the spirit wasn't really willing anymore, but the flesh was very very strong.
F E
and i've got very little money left, and i've got no sense,
Am Dm
but I'll have none of your god damned impudence.
Am E
the sun came up above the new white fields,
Am7 - Am
everything was new again.
G Am
pure power, stripped of meaning,
E Am7-Am
sky burning, spring cleaning.

Am7 - Am Am7 - Am
daisies on the hillside like cancer on the skin
Am7 - Am Am7 Am
pretty little yellow eyes that flutter in the wind
C E Am7-Am Am7-Am
I'd be grateful my children aren't here here to see this if you'd ever seen fit to give me children
F E
and my defenses may be working with a skeleton crew
Am Dm
but I'll be skinned alive before I'll take this from you
Am E
the sun came up above the ocean out west
Am7 - Am
all the colors of the rainbow
G Am
stand up straight, you can see the house leaning
E Am7-Am
day breaking, spring cleaning.
