Achilles Come Down

Capo on 3rd fret
	  		
 


Am        G        C               Am 
Achilles, Achilles, Achilles, come down 
          Am          G              Am 
Won't you get up off, get up off the roof? 
       Am             G          C          G 
You're scaring us and all of us, some of us love you 
Am                 G                C 
Achilles, it's not much but there's proof 
    Am           G            C          Am 
You crazy-assed cosmonaut, remember your virtue 
 Am             G          C 
Redemption lies plainly in truth 
     Am          G        C               D 
Just humour us, Achilles, Achilles, come down 
         Am           G              Am 
Won't you get up off, get up off the roof? 
  
French language sample Am G C 
  


Am       G           C             Am 
Achilles, Achilles, Achilles, come down 
          Am          G             C 
Won't you get up off, get up off the roof? 
     Am               G            C          G 
The self is not so weightless, nor whole and unbroken 
Am            G          Am 
Remember the pact of our youth 
      Am          G         C            D 
Where you go, I'm going, so jump and I'm jumping 
      Am         G           Am 
Since there is no me without you 
Am          G         C         Am 
Soldier on, Achilles, Achilles, come down 
         Am           G               C 
Won't you get up off, get up off the roof? 
   
Pré-Refrão 
Am        C                A         Dm 
Loathe the way they light candles in Rome 
     A             G          Am 
But love the sweet air of the votives 
Am       C                A       Dm 
Hurt and grieve but don't suffer alone 
  A              G         Am 
Engage with the pain as a motive 
 

   Dm        C     G 
Today of all days, see 
Em            C        G           C 
How the most dangerous thing is to love 
Em           C               G    C 
How you will heal and you'll rise above 
  
French language sample Am G C Dm 
  


Am        G         C          Am 
Achilles, Achilles, Achilles, jump now 
        Am        G         C 
You are absent of cause or excuse 
Am        G           C         Am 
So self-indulgent and self-referential 
    Am           G         Am 
No audience could ever want you 
    Am           G          C        G 
You crave the applause yet hate the attention 
      Am           G         C 
Then miss it, your act is a ruse 
       Am    C            C          Am 
It is empty, Achilles, so end it all now 
     Am          G            Am 
It's a pointless resistance for you
  
French language sample Am G C Dm 
  


Am        G                  C       Am 
Achilles, Achilles, just put down the bottle 
       Am        G             C 
Don't listen to what you've consumed 
     Am         G            C      Am 
It's chaos, confusion and wholly unworthy 
    Am              G        C 
Of feeding and it's wholly untrue 
    Am           G           C           Dm 
You may feel no purpose nor a point for existing 
     Am        G              C 
It's all just conjecture and gloom 
          Am         G           C             Dm 
And there may not be meaning, so find one and seize it 
   Am           G             C 
Do not waste yourself on this roof 
  
 

Am          C          A          Dm 
Hear those bells ring deep in the soul 
A         G         Am 
Chiming away for a moment 
Am        C             A         Dm 
Feel your breath course frankly below 
        A           G      Am 
And see life as a worthy opponent 
  
  
Chorus 
  Dm         C     G 
Today of all days, see 
Em           C          G          C 
How the most dangerous thing is to love 
Em           C               G     C 
How you will heal and you'll rise above 
Em            C        G          C 
Crowned by an overture bold and beyond 
Am            G                 C 
Ah, it's more courageous to overcome 
  
French language sample Am G C Dm 
  

     C          Am 
You want the acclaim, the mother of mothers 
       Am             Dm 
(It's not worth it, Achilles) 
  
More poignant than fame or the taste of another 
       Am       C 
(Don't listen, Achilles) 
  
But be real and just jump, you dense motherfucker 
         Am          C 
(You're worth more, Achilles) 
  
You will not be more than a rat in the gutter 
 Am       G         C 
(So much more than a rat) 
  
You want my opinion, my opinion you've got 
 Am     G          G 
(No one asked your opinion) 
  
You asked for my counsel, I gave you my thoughts 
 Am                   Dm 
(No one asked for your thoughts) 
    G                    G            Dm 
Be done with this now and jump off the roof 
  
(Be done with this now and get off the roof) 
       Am        C             Em         G 
Can you hear me, Achilles? I'm talking to you 
  


     Dm         C 
I'm talking to you 
    C          G 
I'm talking to you 
    C          G 
I'm talking to you 
Am             G 
Achilles, come down 
C              G Dm 
Achilles, come down 
  
French language sample Am G C Dm C 
   

Am        G     G        Am 
Throw yourself into the unknown 
      Am        G      C 
With pace and a fury defiant 
Am         G       C        Am 
Clothe yourself in beauty untold 
         Am        G         C 
And see life as a means to a triumph 
  


Dm           C    G 
Today of all days, see 
Em           C         G          C 
How the most dangerous thing is to love 
Em           C               G     C 
How you will heal and you'll rise above 
Em            C        G           C 
Crowned by an overture bold and beyond 
Am             G              C 
Ah, it's more courageous to overcome
