remember keys
A              D
Then it's your business
A                 E
a modern piece of glasswork
A           D
Down on the corner that
A                    E
You walk each day in passing
A           D
The elderly sales clerk
A                 E
With eyes full of suspicion
A                       D         A
The whole corporation's giving it permission

The little stairway
a little bit of carpet
a pair of mirrors that
Are facing one another
Out in both directions
a thousand little Julias
That come together
In the middle of Manhattan


You waited since lunch
It all comes at once

Around the corner
The house that modern art built
I ask for modern art
To keep it out the closet
The people who might own it
The sins of pride and envy
And on the second floor
The Richard Cera Skate Park

Waited since lunch
It all comes at once

Along the park walk
Ask all of our questions
While all the horses
Race taxis in the winter
Look up at the buildings
Imagine who might live there
Imagining you're walking
On a bowl upon the sing there

You waited since lunch
It all comes at once

  1. Username*

    For the chorus, theres actually a change, it goes
    A,d (with no words)
    A. E
    You waited since lunch
    A,d (no words)
    A. E
    It all comes at once
    Then there like an interlude thing where they sing ooh after that part always and it’s like the same chord progression 4 times

  2. Displonker

    Should be “The whole immortal corporation’s given us permission”, to the same chord progression.

    The (A)whole immortal (D)corporation’s (A)given us per(E)mission
