Post-Chorus/Bridge/Interlude thinger:

Dm         C       F
We ditched out the parade

Dm           C        F
And what was there to commemorate?

Dm           C        F
And what was left to remember?

E                    Am       G       C
Not sure what really happened on that day

G                   C
Got steel dust in a vial

G            C
And anodized tiles

G     Am
In my pocket

G          C
From Tower Two

[The rest of the song follows the same pattern]

Be calm, be quiet
As the drones fly by
Look at me, still as a Monterey pine
As the drones fly by
Look at me
And follow my lead...

I'm combing my hair
Lighting a smoke
Playing scratch and win
If they catch me, they catch me
But I'll be running...

We ditched out the parade
And what was there to commemorate?
And what was left to remember?
Not sure what really happened on that day

Got steel dust in a vial
And anodized tiles
In my pocket
From Tower Two

Not sure what really happened on that day
