C                   Em*            Am
I hear you've got a pocket full of words
                     Dsus2/F#
That you keep in the garage
                  F
Together with the feather and the fireworks
  C        Em*               Am
A surftown hero who's got one foot in the garden
Dsus2/F#                                F
Where the neon-lighted cocktail glasses bloom
C                    Em*   Am
And they built you a model airplane
         Dsus2/F#                              F
Like the one that brought you back to Lindbergh field
C                        Em*           Am
Now you're counting your change by the streetlights on India
Dsus2/F#                 F
"Hey, it's me again, I'm faded...could I please come over?"

Verse 2
C               Em*         Am
Old gap-toothed Annie was a friend of mine
Dsus2/F#                      F
The third time around she was born again
C             Em*               Am
She must have burned at least a half-a-million dollars
Dsus2/F#                              F
In the little rooms next door to wash-and-fold
          C        Em*       Am
And there ain't no consolation prize
Dsus2/F#                F
There is no backdoor to innocence
C                  Em*       Am
Just the wild-eyed faces and names that you've forgotten
Dsus2/F#                F
"Hey, the money's gone, I'm broken, could I please come over?"

Raskolnikov's out on the stairs

Howling at the man in the moon

They said he lost control

Between the suburbs and the barrio
