Intro: G#m  E (3x) 
B 

B 
It was exponential Memphis from a thousand feet  
            G#m 
But when we landed we were black and blue  
B 
Running through the city with apocalypse eyes  
     E                                F# 
Just miles of streets with nothing to do  

     B 
Your warm heart had been frozen by some cold ideas  
             G#m 
You tried to tell me but it came out wrong  
  B 
I changed my strings, shaved my face and 
         E                      F#      
Locked myself into the tower of song  
        E                      F# 
It gets lonely in the tower of song  

    G#m        E              B      F# 
But I, I don't stutter when I sing  
G#m     E               B       F# 
My melodies grow little wings  
G#m     E             B              F# 
Huddled here grinding tears into red wine 
G#m      E                 B  
Meet the darkness with the shine  

B 
We've got all our sons and daughters virgin blood on our hands  
               G#m 
They'll be the offspring of these ugly wars  
          B 
But if we kill off all our devils, will our angels die?  
        E                       F# 
I found love living life like a whore  

   B 
So here's some trusty chords and a melody  
           G#m 
A pound of flesh for the brutal throng  
        B 
For the heretics and walking dead and red headed girls 
         E                       F#  
From the fool up in the tower of song  
      E                  F# 
I'm a fool in a tower of song  
         E                       F# 
Make the lonely fool smile, sing along  

G#m            E               B     F# 
Cause we don't stutter when we sing  
G#m     E                B       F# 
Our melodies grow little wings  
G#m     E             B              F# 
Huddled here grinding tears into red wine  
G#m      E                 B     F# 
Meet the darkness with the shine  
G#m      E                 B     F# 
Meet the darkness with the shine 
G#m      E                 B 
Meet the darkness with the shine
