Key: Em
        
Em                         B7       Em 
I watch the work of my kin bold and boyful 
Em                        B7        Em    
Toying somewhere between love and abuse 
D                        G 
Calling to join them the wretched and joyful 
Em                          B7        Em 
Shaking the wings of their terrible youths 

Em                         B7       Em 
Freshly dissolved in some frozen devotion 
Em                  B7          Em 
No more alone or myself could I be. 
D                           G 
Looks like a strain to the arms it were open, 
Em                            B7       Em 
No shortage of sordid, no protest from me. 

Chorus 

         Em                         G 
With her sweetened breath, and her tongue so mean 
          D                            Em 
She's the angel of small death and the codeine scene. 
          Em                    G 
With her straw-blonde hair, her arms hard and lean, 
          D                            Em 
She's the angel of small death and the codeine scene. 

Em                     B7             Em 
Feeling more human and hooked on her flesh I, 
Em                         B7          Em 
Lay my heart down with the rest at her feet. 
D                           G 
Fresh from the fields, all feeder and fur tires, 
Em                    B7           Em 
Bloody and raw, but I swear it is sweet. 

Bridge:

Chorus 

    Em                          B7         Em 
And lease this confusion, I'll wander the concrete, 
Em                   B7        Em 
Wonder if better now having survived. 
D                         G 
Jarring of judgement and reasons defeat, 
     Em                             B7         Em 
The sweet heat of her breath in my mouth I'm alive.
