Cecilia & Her Selfhood

Capo on 4th fret

Intro (No instruments) 

In the center of the city was a statue and her twin 
And together they watched over everything 
Oh, they saw me when I stumbled and they watched you help me stand 
I'd swear Cecilia and her sister had it all planned 

Then one morning I was walking, from my window to your door 
Well I nearly hit the ground with what I saw 
Cecilia had been broken, while her sister had been spared 
And the vandals had scattered the pieces everywhere

Verse A (Guitar enters here, Strum once for the first Verse): Fm C Am Fm And I knew it made me wonder what kind of twisted mind C Am Fm Would ever hurt her, so thoughtless and unkind C Am Fm7 But a monster so cruel can't be that hard to find Fm Boys Verse B: C So I started wearing warpaint and I gathered all my friends Am C For Cecilia we'd be hunters 'till the end She was built for a perfect picture, but she came to represent Am C Though I guess I never understood exactly what it meant Verse A: Fm C Am Fm Oh I know Cecilia and her sister were just statues made of stone C Am Fm But I still missed her and now her sister's all alone C No that just won't do! Am Fm7 So let's raid the vandal's homes Fm Boys Verse C: C So we ventured out at sunrise Am With our torches and our spears C And our shotguns and our fears Am And our carefully hidden tears C For Cecilia, Cecilia Verse A: Fm C Now I'm thinking of the moment Am Fm When we can look them in the eye C Am Fm And make them sorry, 'cause tonight they're gonna die C Yeah, we'll shoot them up dead! Am Fm7 Leave their bodies where they lie Fm Boys Verse D: C So now we're following the pieces of Cecilia to the door Am C Every shattered limb repeatedly reminding us of what we're searching for And the sleepers have woken for now they have an aim Am C Yes they're quite aware of the cold hard fact that the city's loss could be their gain Verse A: Fm C They are dreaming of, the feeling of! Am Fm C Am Fm A trophy in their arms, a hero's welcome, claiming women with their charms C Am Fm7 Oh I'm sorry if I hurt you, you know I swear I meant no harm Fm Baby Verse E: C Em7 Am Cm7 So the trail, it keeps on turning as we wander through the streets Fm C Em7 Fm I keep looking at, the pieces of Cecilia at my feet C But the strangest thing occurs to me When I stop to look around Am C Oh I'd swear we are returning to the center of the town! Verse A (Strum once for last verse.): Fm C Yes we're back here, where we started Am Fm C Where Cecilia used to stand, but her sister looks different Am Fm Please, tell me boys, if you can? C Is that a smile on her face? Am Fm7 Is that a hammer in her hand?
