                This is The Menzinger's song 'Burn After Writing', second track from their latest
structure in
comparison to the technicality of the record.

Verse 1:
D                                      Bm
Here's to you, the same chords that I stole
A                          D
                   Bm             A
The Same melody I borrowed from the void
D                                         Bm
I'd rather observe than structure a narrative
A
The characters are thin;
D                     Bm
The plot does not develop
A                     D
It ends where it begins

Link; D, Bm, A (x2)

Verse 2:
D
It's on the screen, in paperbacks
Bm                       A
In section 8 and cul-de-sacs
D
Electro haikus and drunk sonnets
Bm                A
Are moving me along
Em
Along


Chorus: (x2)
D
You cut my hair
Bm                A
You left red ink everywhere
      Em
Do my hands tell a story?
A
Is it boring?

Link (Palm Muted): D, Bm, A

Verse 3:  (Palm-Muted)
D
What I'd give to force your sigh
Bm                       A
What I'd give to see you cry
D
What I'd give for your caress
Bm
To see your blue cotton dress
A
Balled up on the floor
D
Certain memories are the problem
Bm                       A       D
Certain drunken lines are the shame
                Bm
Seven hundred miles and four years
                        A       D
I can't fight the flame; it burns
G
Burns, and it burns and it burns.

Chorus: (x2)
D
You cut my hair
Bm                A
You left red ink everywhere
      Em
Do my hands tell a story?
A
Is it boring?

Outro:
D
Was I wishing on satellites?
A                      D
Tell me how you've been doing that trick
A                      D
I'm just wishing the flame away
A                      D
Now I'm wishing the flame away



Nota Bene:
On the D's in the outro, and throughout other points during the song, you can add
embellishments to make it sounds a bit more tidy, but you don't have to. If you wanna 
give it
a try, then whilst you're on the regular D Major shape, hit the fourth fret on the D 
string, then move it up to second, then open again. Large.
