0Verse:
      Am0        E1              G2
1After all these implements and texts designed by
D3                C4                D5
2intellects we're vexed to find evidently there's
      G6
3still so much that hides.
    Am7         E8               G9
4And though the saints dub us divine in ancient
D10                  C11            D12
5fading lines their sentiment is just as hard to

8Chorus:
F14                       D15
9I'll try hard not to pretend
F16                      D17          E18
10allow myself no mock defense as I

14Verse:
Am19    E20                G21                D22

        C23                   D24
16out the nursery rhymes that helped us out in
       G25
17making sense of our lives
Am26            E27                G28        D29
18The cruel, uneventful state of apathy releases me
  C30              D31                 G32
19I value them but I won't cry every time one's
20

F33                         D34

25batten down to fare the wind
F38                      D39
