Em Em D D   Am                 C          Am   Em G Em Em 
           Semi-precious stone   for Cassandra 
D                   F            D    Em Em D D 
Semi-precious stone   for your drugs 
Am                  C        Am    Em G Em Em 
Semi-precious stone   for science 
D                   F           D     
Semi-precious stone   for your kiss 
                                  C 
But I am standing on a pile of diamonds 
                       G 
That I would like to submit 
Em         D    Am 
For your totem poles

D                         F            D  Em Em D D 
Or had to get out of the city to get free 
Am                    C                Am  Em G Em Em 
A semi-precious stone, semi-precious stone 
D                    F              D 
For every thumb we ran along the crease 
                              C 
I am standing on a pile of diamonds 
                       G          Em Em D D Am 
That i would like to submit, woo! 


Bridge 
      Am               C 
And lover, it was so windy 
      G                             Am 
The night was filled with furious trees 
                                       C 
The streets were strewn with broken branches 
      G                            Am 
Oh, save me from this conspiring breeze 

              Am 
This is the sound 
              C 
This is the sound 
              G 
This is the sound 
              Am 
This is the sound 
              Am 
This is the sound 
              C 
This is the sound 
        G                   Am 
Of the sky foaming at the mouth 

Am C G Am (x2) 


verse 3 
              Am 
This is the sound that I choose to make, now 
              C 
This is the sound that I choose to make 
G 
Surrounded with tools and 
             Am 
No longer suitable for carving faces 
          Am 
Swinging down, through the air 
          C 
Like a branch, through the air 
           G 
Until my basic human bones 
             Am 
Are like a hammer, like a hammer on a semi-precious stone 

              Am 
This is the sound 
              C 
This is the sound 
              G 
This is the sound 
              Am 
This is the sound 
              Am 
This is the sound 
              C 
This is the sound 
        G                   Am 
Of the sky foaming at the mouth 

Am C G Am x2 

F  E x3 


Outro 
    C                   Am       
So hey, you can keep Cassandra 
F                 G 
And you can keep your kiss 
C                      Am 
You should save your energy 
         F         G 
For the new apocalypse 
      Am 
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh!
