stop and think

JUST STOPPING THINK EVERYONES IN A WHILE BUDDEE

feel free to add these to the original post (for when the songs are released….ahem).
i might be able to work on side b too. but no promises.
we're playing this one on PSQ tour so i had to work this chord sheet up.
cheers A-holes
(ps the formatting for the chord spacing got all effed up when i previewed this, so keep that in mind. right chords, wrong timing)

kept secrets

D Am D Am D Am


C Bm
Your worried mistress thinks you need

Am G
physical exertion and vitamin d

Am Bm
misunderstanding the real enemies

CM7 GM7
sunlight and gravity


D Am D Am
when kept secrets flow down crooked slopes

D Am C G
and cut a hundred riverbeds in valley floors below

D Am D Am
every liar knows he'll die alone

D Am C G
still you hide your hope and hedge your bets until the snow

C G
is white with ocean foam



down on her hardwood bedroom floor


you pen the doctrine of preemptive war


gladly performed for deafening applause


then you call it sabotage



when kept secrets flow down crooked slopes


and cut a hundred riverbeds in valley floors below


every liar knows he'll die alone


still you hide your hope and hedge your bets until the snow


is white with ocean foam
shiver me timbers.

In a perfect world, that song really would end with a pause, and then... "shiver me timbers."

:P Done.

Only question left is the first line. I heard "delined" originally and I like the meaning it gives the rest of the verse (dimensions as in units of measure); steely hears "delight" and that would line up with dimensions meaning something like heaven. The more I listen the more I hear "delight" too, though, so I'll just wait for Dave to confirm either way.

If I have learned anything, it is the opposite of whatever ansible's ears hear.

Nah.... Sometimes being wrong is a rare and distinct privilege. Just think of what an asshole I'd be if I was right all the time.

Well, you have to have the asshole gene already dominant, so not everyone is at risk. ;) I'm not sensing the vibe from you, so you may be safe. Those affected, though, need a healthy dose of humility from time to time or else we become gaping assholes.
