Verse:
      Am        E              G
After all these implements and texts designed by
D                C                D
intellects we're vexed to find evidently there's
      G
still so much that hides.
    Am         E               G
And though the saints dub us divine in ancient
D                  C            D
fading lines their sentiment is just as hard to
G
pluck from the vine.

Chorus:
F                       D
I'll try hard not to pretend
F                      D          E
allow myself no mock defense as I

step into the night.

Verse:
Am    E                G                D
Since I don't have the time nor mind to figure
        C                   D
out the nursery rhymes that helped us out in
       G
making sense of our lives
Am            E                G        D
The cruel, uneventful state of apathy releases me
  C              D                 G
I value them but I won't cry every time one's

wiped out.

Chorus:
F                         D
I'll try hard not to give in
F                       D         E
batten down to fare the wind
F                      D
rid my head of this pretense
F                      D           E
allow myself no mock defense as I

step into the night

C                G
Mercy's eyes are blue and
Dm          F   G
when she places them in
C        G
front of you
Dm      F       G
nothing holds a roman

candle to
Dm         F          G
the solemn warmth you feel
