Em                           Am
First I drank insecticide, a little more each day
Em                                      Am
Followed by dirty and sugary food grown where the light was grey
G                                       C
Later my thoughts were small and sharp adapted to their purpose
G                            C                B
to extract the fuel from fat under the lovely surface

      C                  D                 Em
Cause nothing beautiful, nothing beautiful lasts

Em                                            Am
Moved to a ghost town for inspiration I could start where they'd given up
Em                                                Am
Feed on the seed of the dreams people left out to rot when the going got tough
G                          C
Cockroaches turn adversity to immunity
      G                                            C                B
there ain't a niche lower in the animal kingdom or one with more longevity

      C                  D                 G
Cause nothing beautiful, nothing beautiful lasts
      C                  D
Cause nothing beautiful, nothing beautiful
G   F# Bm  E
lasts, lasts

     Em                                    Am
It's easier to deny what's real and what's solid and what you can see
       Em                                               Am
If you bulldoze the bankrupted buildings, failure's the dust that settles on the trees

      C                  D                 G
Cause nothing beautiful, nothing beautiful lasts
C                  D                 G
Nothing beautiful, nothing beautiful lasts
C                  D                 G
Nothing beautiful, nothing beautiful lasts
C                  D
Nothing beautiful, nothing beautiful
G   F# Bm  E
lasts, lasts
G   F# Bm  E
lasts, lasts
G   F# Bm  E
lasts, lasts
