Thankless Task lyrics

Pre>intro e d 4 times then e bm7 e d

E a
You can brace yourself for it
Bm7 d g c
But never ignore it away got to go stop
E a
There are hints of forgiveness
Bm7 d g c
You can stand as your witness but they will let you drop
D c
And they dont even see the betrayal
D c
That you trip on the light rail
G em7 d
And you feel you owe too much to even ask
D
What a thankless task

They all want you to call them
The hint from the dare wouldnt dare solid real
They all want to be near you
Hoping something will rub off that they can touch feel
And you dont even know what they say
You just hope that it comes in your hair
And it makes you want to just look back and laugh
Em7 g
What a thankless task thankless task
Em7 g em7 g e
Thankless task thankless task oh yeah

Push buttons and pull pumps
But dont know what comes out in the end
And it never stops theres always a price on your head
Where in the world will it end?
Will they ever let it drop?
And you dont even see the betrayal
As you trip on the light rail
And you feel you owe too much to even ask
What a thankless task thankless task
Thankless task thankless task
What a thankless task

Repeats and fades /pre>
