G 
The desert is the sand
Em 
You can’t hold it in your hand
C 
It won’t bow to your demands
Am 
There’s no difference you can make
D 
There’s no difference you can make
Em 
And if it seems like an accident
C 
A collage of senselessness
Am 
You aren’t looking hard enough
D 
I wasn’t looking hard enough
 
G 
An argument for consciousness
Am

The instinct of the blind inse

G 
Can finally be the same
Em 
I just got myself to blame
C 
Is everything up to fate
Am 
When there’s choices I could make
D 
When there’s choices I could make
Em 
Yeah, my heart needs a polygraph
C 
Always so eager to pack my bags
Am 
When I really wanna stay
D 
When I really wanna stay
 
G 
The arc of time, the stench of sex
G 
The innocence you can’t protect
D 
Each quarter note, each marble step
D 
Walk up and down that lonely treble clef
C 
Each wanting the next one
G 
Each wanting the next one to arrive
C 
Each wanting the next one
G 
Each wanting the next one to arrive
 
G 
An argument for consciousness
G 
The instinct of the blind insect
D 
Who never thinks not to accept its fate
D 
That’s fate, that’s happiness and death
C 
You get to the next one
G 
You get to the next on down the line
C 
You get to the next one
G 
You get to the next on down the line
 
G 
The remedy of longing that
G 
Distills each dream and the song I had
D 
By morning watered down again
D 
On silver stars I wish and wish and wish
 
C 
Move on to the next one
G 
Move on to the next one down the line
C 
Move on to the next one
G 
Move on to the next one down the line
C 
You get to the next one
G 
You get to the next on down the line
C 
You get to the next one
G 
You get to the next on down the line
