Carnation
(Weller)

Am C
If you gave me a fresh carnation
G A#
I would only crush it's tender petals
Am C
With me you'll have no escape
G A#
And at the same time there'll be nowhere to settle -

Gm D#6
I trample down all life in my wake
D Bm
I eat it up and take the cake
E Am
I just avert my eyes to the pain
D Am
Of someone's loss helping my gain

If you gave me a dream for my pocket
You'd be plugging in the wrong socket
With me there's no room for the future
With me there's no room with a view at all -

Gm D#
I am out of season all year 'round
D Bm
Hear machinery roar to my empty sound
E Am
Touch my heart and feel winter
D Cm
Hold my hand and be doomed forever -

Cm/Bb6 / Cm/Bb6 / Am/F6 / Am/Em7 / Fmaj7/G6 / E
Piano solo: Am/C / G/Bb (x2)

If you gave me a fresh carnation
I would only crush it's tender petals
With me you'll have now escape
And at the same time there'll be nowhere to settle.

Gm D#6
And if you're wondering by now who I am
D Bm
Look no further than the mirror -
E Am
Because I am the Greed and Fear
D Cm
And every ounce of Hate in you.

Outro: D/Bm / E/Am / D
Cm/D / Bm/E / Am /D
