James Vincent McMorrow - This Old Dark Machine Chords

Cm Fill   
Cm                      Gm    
Spring it came upon us, every insect filled the air    
F                                    Cm                        Fill    
Dropped their wings upon my brother, cast their shadows on his hair    
Cm                                  Gm    
If we follow where they're leading, We will surely come before    
F                               Cm                       Cm7    
some unseen and wondrous magic, made of visions to explore    
F                                   Cm                      Cm7    
Near the town where we were living, was an old abandoned farm    
F                                Cm                        Cm7    
Every year we'd plant an orchid, in the shelter of it's arm    
F                               Cm                       Cm7    
To protect us from the madness, of the future still to come    
Gm                            D#                            F    
It will be like this forever, I will keep you safe from harm    
Cm Gm F Cm Fill    
Cm                                 Gm    
Then they caught us in the summer, dressed in fathers finest clothes    
F                              Cm                         Fill    
You the hat he wore to market, I the jacket filled with holes    
Cm                                   Gm    
I've been searching all these hours, for a hand as pale as bone    
F                                       Cm                            Cm7    
That would keep the strongest sunlight, and reflect the brightest stone    
F                                   Cm                           Cm7    
Near the town where we were living, was a warm and fragrant smell    
F                             Cm                       Cm7    
Of the orchid we had planted, now a forest tall and well    
F                               Cm                       Cm7    
What a statue to our greatness, what a story all will tell    
Gm                           D#                           F    
They'll remember us forever, they'll remember where we fell    
Cm Gm F Cm Fill    
This old dark machine, it shakes and it shudders    
Pulls to the left, then dies near the gutter    
But still in the road, the traffic is silent    
The people they stare, and then they turn violent    
If they should touch, the hem of your dress    
I would rise like a lion, strike out again    
The faithful they wait, the faithful they wait    
By the sign    
F                                   Cm                         Cm7    
Near the town where we were living, came a loud and joyous sound    
F                                Cm                             Cm7    
As the earth and all her beauty, picked us up from off the ground    
F                                Cm                     Cm7    
Carried far across the mountain, to a kingdom never bound    
Gm                              D#                F    
We will live like this forever, I will love you, I will love you    
Bridge x 2    
Cm Gm F Cm
