Track Name: Gatekeeper
G C D
Homebound- hoping for another chance/ No sound- penetrates your walls of glass


I’ll hold still for you/ I’ll will do anything


Kickstart- looking for the biggest break/ My heart- doesn’t know another way
Em D C D
Again I’m knocking at your door/ The more I do, the less I’m sure


G C
While you’re guarding every gate/ I’m making my mistakes
Em G/B C D
What God gave you all the keys and left nothing for me
G C
While I’m running out of time/ Staring at walls that I can’t climb
Em G/B C D
Now I realize/ I’m better off on the outside


G C D
On top- why am I compelled to care/ Full stop- Before I breathe the thinnest air
Em D C D
Permission please to start this show/ I make it up as I go


G C
While you’re guarding every gate/ I’m making my mistakes
Em G/B C D
What God gave you all the keys and left nothing for me
G C
While I’m running out of time/ Staring at walls that I can’t climb
Em G/B C D
Now I realize/ I’m better off on the outside


Em G/B C D
Gatekeeper - Keep your secrets and your keys
It’s clearly up to me - To build the things I want to be




While you’re guarding every gate/ I’m making my mistakes
What God gave you all the keys and left nothing for me
While I’m running out of time/ Staring at walls that I can’t climb
Now I realize/ I’m better off on the outside
Track Name: Castiel
D C G D C G
Set apart from all the angels - When the demons get you down
D C G D C G
I’ve been watching from the sidelines - From this god forsaken town


You keep looking for a reason - With the brothers by your side


Great heart full of great intentions - Some wings are never meant to fly
Em D C C Em
You’re my wayward son - You will carry on


G Gsus G D G Gsus G D
Bright lights flashing all around you - Upright always falling down
G Gsus G D Em D C G Gsus G G Gsus G
Not quite God and not quite human - You’re grace can be found




Life lost slipping through your fingers - No soul left to lead you home


Home is nothing but a highway - Free will forever meant to roam


You’re divinity cannot set you free




G Gsus G D G Gsus G D
Bright lights flashing all around you - Upright always falling down
G Gsus G D Em D C G
Not quite God and not quite human - You’re grace can be found
Em D C G Gsus G G Gsus G
On your way down


Em D C D
The prophecy of humanity need your trench coat dreams




G Gsus G D G Gsus G D
Bright lights flashing all around you - Upright always falling down
Not quite God and not quite human - You’re grace can be found
Bright lights flashing all around you - Upright always falling down
Not quite God and not quite human - You’re grace can be found
Track Name: Smile Pretty
SMILE PRETTY by Kittens Slay Dragons
A D A
Get up in the morning - It’s a chore sing songs to me
A D A
One arm at a time - I’m on your side when you can’t breathe
A D
Falling down the night in pieces - All around you can’t believe this
Bm A/C# D E
I am waiting up for you


A D A
Fill the cup - it’s just enough to get you through the door
A D A
Pass the time and past your prime - Inside you’re waging war
A D
Lights go out in everyhall way - Strangers shout Smile, it’s pretty
Bm A/C# D E
No one knows you like I do


F#m D A E
Nothing’s always your response - Cutting off the rest of us
F#m D A E F#m D A
But your mouth is serious - Couldn’t this just be enough?
F#m E F#m D A
I’ll be the hand that you hold
F#m E F#m D A
When every plan starts to unfold


A D A
Pose for painted pictures - Stick your sunshine out to dry
A D A
Uncontented, spent, and bent beyond the blackest sky
A D
On the floor, drop every bottle - Nothing more to make or model
Bm A/C# D E
I am holding out for you


F#m D A E
Nothing’s always your response - Cutting off the rest of us
F#m D A E F#m D A
But your mouth is serious - Couldn’t this just be enough?
F#m E F#m D A
I’ll be the hand that you hold
F#m E F#m D A E
When every plan starts to unfold

Couldn’t this just be enough?
Track Name: Love Is Surgery
SURGERY - KITTENS SLAY DRAGONS


C Em F
A million doubts creep in when I have no control
The ones with nothing left are those give the most
Say you’ll stay here - Say there’s time
You’re heart can’t stop made up minds


Breathe deep and fall asleep, chasing all the stars
I know it’s up to you to live with all those scars
Say you want to - Say you’ll try
My heart can’t stop so I fight


Am F Dm G
When I let you go, my stitches start to show


G Am Dm F
Open your eyes and see/ Love is surgery


On the inside believe/ Love is surgery


Your vision starts to blur, starts to feel the scope
The widow widens now to panoramic hope
You never saw the signs, you never saw the cards Say you’re happy - Say I tried
Beneath the broken tree with only disregard No heart can stop when it’s right


G Am Dm F
Open your eyes and see/ Love is surgery
On the inside believe/ Love is surgery
Open your eyes and see/ Love is surgery
On the inside believe/ Love is surgery


Em F C
Back room waiting/ I want you to know
I’ve been saving/ Up up up up for now


G Am Dm F
Open your eyes and see/ Love is surgery
On the inside believe/ Love is surgery
Open your eyes and see/ Love is surgery
On the inside believe/ Love is surgery

I watch for the warning signs/ I watch for the borderline
I watch from the side/ I watch for goodbye
You’re living the best of lives/ You’re living up all the time
You’re living unlimited, everything’s fine


And all the answers are inside of you/ and When you leave it will be too soon


THE WORLD FELL FOR YOU RIGHT FROM THE START
I NEVER KNEW IT WOULD BE SO HARD
AND WHEN THE TRUTH CAUGHT ME OFF GUARD
YOU TAUGHT ME TO BREATH WITH A BIG, BIG HEART
Track Name: Under The Waves
UNDER THE WAVES (BPM 125)
E
You’re too small to make a difference/ Feel too slow to go the distance
C#m
Long ago when you were worth it/ Afterglow where you deserved it
A E/G# A B E
Oh I know the dark confessions/ All alone in silent spaces


Waters rise You learn to let go/ With the tide The words all afloat
In your sight, the burnt horizon/ Lost in flight just keep your eyes on
Northern lights and paper letters/ On your side, they change the weather


E/G# A E/G# A
When you’re eyes are on the ceiling and the lights are low
E/G# A E/G# A B
And the voices keep repeating what you already know
C#m A E/G#
Under the waves, be still and be safe
A B E
Hold on till they break at the shoreline


E
Home was home beside an ocean/ One straight road that went unbroken
C#m
Hopes unfold, you lose your footing/ Eyes grow old when you aren’t looking
A E/G# A B E
No one knows the dark confessions/ Only cracks to let the light in


When you’re eyes are on the ceiling and the lights are low
And the voices keep repeating what you already know
Under the waves, be still and be safe
Hold on till they break at the shoreline


G#m A G#m A F#m F#/A# B
Be still. You’re safe. Your burden is mine.


(inst drop out)
When you’re eyes are on the ceiling and the lights are low
And the voices keep repeating what you already know (inst return)
When you’re eyes are on the ceiling and the lights are low
And the voices keep repeating what you already know
Under the waves, be still and be safe
Hold on till they break at the shoreline
Track Name: Queer and Square
Queer and Square by Kittens Slay Dragons


Am G C F
You waited months for this/ I don't know where you've been
But now we're in this hall of/ Leather scenes and plastic freaks


Your silence starts to fade/ The games, the masquerade
Today your voice is clear/ The safest space, you elevate


Am G
Break down walls - break down stares
C F G
Step into the light
Am G
We are all queer and square
C F G Am C Am C
Get out there and dance - it’s your right


Am G C F
The years spent on the sides/ We all identify
Arms out, you’re coming home/ Take the stage, take back the night


The colors mix and spin/ Where does the beat begin?
It’s starting here and now/ Are you out? Are you in?


Am G
Break down walls - break down stares
C F G
Step into the light
Am G
We are all queer and square
C F G Am C Am C
Get out there and dance - it’s your right


F G Am C
Playing to your type/ Every day and night
Beneath flourescent lights/ Your hand is next to mine (CHORUS)

Digging deeper To the creatures inside
Hills get steeper but you climb
Clouds are forming, but the warning lights
Pass like goodbye, Your back is to the sky


C#m
Falling from the greatest heights
B
Born again by morning light
A B
It’s not a game. It’s not a life


E A C#m B
The farther down that you go, the more you leave behind
You’re breaking down down below the monsters in the mine
C#m
Get up, get up the dawn is breaking
A B
Get up, get up you’ve been making symbols in the sky

Fires burning You are yearning to go
Sun keeps turning Your shadow grows
Changing weather Far above our sights
Lost in the Nether, Enders come in the night (PRE-CHORUS/CHORUS)

Track Name: Eggs
EGGS OVER EASY (90bpm, RESET 8A, TECHNO B1)
Intro Riff G G/Bb G/B G/C G/F G/F# G


G G/C G G/F (2x)
Everything that you want, everything that you need
Is alone, is alive, is a life, is inside of me
You would fly to the moon, to the brightest ball that you see
In the end it depends on a friend, and I’ll lend what you need
F/Bb C F/Bb C D
Nothing is wasted. Tomorrow is something worth chasing. I know you know.
G G/C G G/F (2x)
You’ve been running around in a town where it’s out of reach
Your basket is full of the eggs and a metaphor lost at sea
The goods are forgotten, but often I start to think
My mind it could change, it’s a shame, my name gone in a blink
F/Bb C F/Bb C D
Nothing is wasted. Tomorrow is something worth chasing. I know you know.
G C Em D
All these parts of me waking up from underneath
When the heart begins to beat, you start to feel complete (intro riff)


G G/C G G/F (2x)
You waited. You made it. You stated your case. Your dreams
Cannot be contained by the stages, by the places where you have been
We’re under the gun, we’re under the knife it seems


Time gets wasted, I am wasted, he said she said, I am wasted
Time gets wasted, I am wasted, he said she said, I am wasted
Time gets wasted, I am wasted, he said she said, I am wasted (Nothing is wasted tomorrow)
Time gets wasted, I am wasted, he said she said, I am wasted (Is something worth chasing…)


F/Bb C F/Bb C D
Nothing is wasted. Tomorrow is something worth chasing. I know you know.


All these parts of me waking up from underneath
When the heart begins to beat, you start to feel complete
F/Bb C F/Bb C
Start to feel complete, start to feel complete,
start to feel complete, start to feel complete


All these parts of me waking up from underneath
When the heart begins to beat, you start to feel complete

When did you give up and stop moving/ When it felt safe what were you proving

And I would follow the road/ But never call you my home

Big brains that never say no/ Traditions that only grow old
