Pet Politics

Silver Jews cover

Em                     Am
Guard my bed while the rain turns the ditches to mirrors
B
buy a vase of carnations from central Ohio
Em
where the looking machine can't hear us

Em 
Deep in the night we dream of positions
Am
there's a line for the phone in the hall
B
and in the cold places where Spanish is spoken
Em
most wars end in the fall
C                         G   Bm   Em
You never know where your pet will go
G D G D G D Em
pet politics

Em
Still wearing last nights' mascara
Am
now that her pet was gone for sure
B
she was shivering so hard 
Em
it looked like there were two of her

Em
I could see through the sleeve of her blouse
Am
the mute plans of her architect lover
B
a tattoo of a boarded-up house
Em
and ink door that belonged to another
C                         G    Bm  Em
When the rain hits you it hits you slow
G D G D G D Em
stitch after stitch

Adam was not the first man 'though the Bible tells us so
There was one created before him, whose name we do not know
He also lived in the garden
but he had no mouth or eyes
One day Adam came to kill him
and he died beneath these skies

I find it so amazing how
I go where I'm led (x2)

C                     G Bm   Em
I suspect we could be losing now
G D G D G D Em
please guard my bed (x3)
