VERSE: 

C  C9              Em7  Em
So much space can fit in a sigh
C  C9               Em7 Em
More than words can say
C  C9                          Em
I'm left here standing with my hands all awkward
G              D   Dsus
Trying to mend space
C C9           Em7  Em
I used to know you
C  C9      Em7  Em
But not anymore
C  C9                  Em7  Em
Your substance has been subtracted
G       D     D*   D6/9    D*
Word by word

CHORUS:

D                                  C
Silence in my ears, where once you offered your conviction
D                                 C
Your promises are dry beads that crack with nostalgia
    Em7  Em           C       C9                  
But that's all right, that's okay
Em                        D      Dsus
Had no business giving myself to you anyway
Em                    C
I'll be careful next time for sure
          Em                   C       C9
And I'll, I'll never trust my pink, fleshy heart
Em                   C           C9
I'll never trust my pink, fleshy heart
D         D*   D6/9    D*      C   -   Cmaj7  - C9  -  C
To a car    -        ni   -    vore
D         D*   D6/9    D*      Em7
To a car    -        ni   -    vore

VERSE 2 (AS ABOVE)
Your soul is an ink stain
Your perfection is amend
You're as fragile as your thoughtlessness
Strong as you can bend
You could only believe in embryos
Held all your high-hopes through a telescope
Lavender haunted you so I could
Only laugh in yellow
And you have a genius for subtlety
and you'd slip through the fingers of ambiguity

CHORUS 2 (AS ABOVE)
But that's all right, that's okay
Had no business giving myself to you anyway
I'll be careful next time for sure
And I'll, I'll never trust my pink, fleshy heart
I'll never trust my pink, fleshy heart
To a carnivore

BRIDGE: 

D         D*   D6/9    D*      
You know I did it before but I won't
C  
Do it again this time I'm being my own best friend
D         D*       D6/9         D*  
And I'm taking my songs and my poetry
C
This time I won't be so easy to read
          Em                  C      C9
And I'll, I'll never trust my pink, fleshy heart
Em                   C     C9
I'll never trust my pink, fleshy heart
Em                   C     C9
I'll never trust my pink, fleshy heart
D         D*   D6/9    D*      C   -   Cmaj7  - C9  -  C
To a car    -        ni   -    vore
D         D*   D6/9    D*      C   -   Cmaj7  - C9  -  C
A car    -        ni   -    vore
D         D*   D6/9    D*      Em  (end on strum)
To a car    -        ni   -    vore
