[Intro]
G C Em F C Cmaj7 G C Em F C Cmaj7 [Verse 1]
G C Em Wrapped in the wings of a sparrow F C Cmaj7 Beak is as sharp as an arrow G C Em Sings in a whispering whistle F C Cmaj7 Sleeps in the ivy and thistle G C Em Owls out swooping and howling F C Cmaj7 Deep in the midnight a-prowling G C Em Mama, the scream of the eagle F C Cmaj7 Threading my heart through the needle G C Em Threading the blood through the apple F C Cmaj7 Sucking the juice from the apple G C Em Eating the seeds of the apple F C Cmaj7 Bearing the tree of the apple G C Em Trapped in the weeds like a scarecrow F C Cmaj7 Stuck to the wind like Velcro G C Em Distantly hearing the bell toll F C Cmaj7 Warbling chime through the meadow [Verse 2]
G C Em Mama, the scream of the eagle F C Cmaj7 Threading my heart through the needle G C Em Threading the blood through the apple F C Cmaj7 Eve sucked the juice from the apple G C Em Nakedly running, I saw her F C Cmaj7 Boy chasing after to stall her G C Em I wish I'd have spoken to call her F C Cmaj7 Before she found fabric to shawl her G C Em Breasts bound and burdened with fiber F C Cmaj7 Adam came trembling beside her Cmaj7 And he said, and he said G C Em That she has the poison inside her F C Cmaj7 She talks to snakes and they guide her G C Em She has the poison inside her F C Cmaj7 She talks to snakes and they guide her G C Em She has the poison inside her F C Cmaj7 She talks to snakes and they guide her G C Em She has the poison inside her F C Cmaj7 She talks to snakes and they guide her [Outro]
