D
I am hiding in the house
F#m
someone's coming through the gate
         G
when the doorbell sounds like an air raid siren
D             Asus4 A
I am lying in wait

D
people used to come around
F#m
they fish-eyed and they rubbernecked
G
 anyone who'd come to visit now
D                    A
is automatically a suspect

D
I creep up to the window
G
me and my buzzing brain
              D
and we watch two Jehovah's Witnesses
Asus4 A
retreating down the lane

D
I'm not coming out yet
G
it's too cold
         D
leave me alone
        Bm   G          A            D
'til I learn how to spin straw into gold

I put on nightvision goggles
work my way along the wall into the kitchen
as soon as the first snow fell this year
my fingers started itching

and I locked up the doors
and I sealed up all the windows
and friends came by sometime, for a while
I never let 'em in, though

then they stopped
then they stopped at last, and now it's just us three:
these walls,
and the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day Saints
and me

and I'm not coming out yet
it's too cold
leave me alone
'til I learn how to spin straw into gold
