Dare to tread
(on Fork Songs album)

Thanks to my cousin Arnaud for having found the F#m chord...

Capo on 1st fret

D                G+/F# G+ G+/F# G+

D              G                        D
Hey         i love your feet of finest clay
      G                        D 
they stir me in the strangest way
     G                  D
you never have much to say
       G                         F#m 
all your monologues are total cliche

G  Dadd11/G  G+  F#m
you're so hollow you 
G Dadd11/G  G+ F#m                     		
i can't follow you 
F#m                 G+                       F#m                                G+
where you dare to tread i'm sure to wind up dead there's nothing better left unsaid 
G+                             D   Dsus2   D   Dsus2
and nothing's what you like to do

     Dadd11/G  G  Dadd11/G  G   D   Dsus2   D   Dsus2
most people love the likes of you 
they jostle for a better view
they can't believe you're really true
   Dadd11/G                             F#m
cos truth is dirt and no one's clean as you

you're so hollow you 
i can't follow you 
where you dare to tread
i'm sure to wind up dead there's nothing better left unsaid 
and that's exactly what you say

the sun has turned a purest gray 
the world around us stoops to pray
you open up your mouth and bray with bestial naieveté

you're so hollow you 
i can't follow you 
where you dare to tread i'm sure to wind up dead there's nothing better left unsaid 
and nothing's good enough for you

your eyes are of the clearest blue 
they gleam like something rare and new
you use them to disguise what's you 
and if i were you i'd do that too

you're so hollow you 
i can't follow you 
where you dare to tread i'm sure to wind up dead there's nothing better left unsaid 
and that's exactly what you say
