[Verse 1]
 E                      A 
Hope'll set your eyes agleam
      E                           B
Like four feet dangling in the stream
          E                                 A
But the Kingdom of God, it's a pressure machine
  E                         B
Every step, gotta keep it clean
    E                      A
A mattress on a hardwood floor
 E                       B  
Who could ever ask for more?
  E                       A
I'll get up and cut the grass
        E                         B
Ain't nothing wrong with working class
[Chorus]
F#m  B             E          B/Eb  C#m F#m  B     E   B/Eb   C#m
I,...... I don't remember the last time you...... asked how I was
F#m        B             E      B/Eb  C#m   
Don't you feel the time slipping away?.....
          F#m          B
It ain't funny at all.....
                       E   B/Eb C#m  
It's gonna break your heart one day

[Verse 2]
 E                           A     
Keep the debt cloud off the kids
 E                      B
Only sunshine on their lids
 E                         A
Jiminy Cricket and Power Wheels
     E                   B
And memories of Happy Meals
 E                        A
Sometimes I look at the stars
      E                       B 
And think about how small we are
  E                                A
Sweating it out in the pressure machine
 E                   B  
Good till the last drop

[Chorus]
F#m  B             E    B/Eb   C#m
Why ....don't you say little things?
F#m         B                E    B/Eb  C#m  
....Butterflies don't just dance on a string
F#m           B          E        B/Eb   C#m  
....It feels like you clipped all their wings
          F#m            B              E B/Eb C#m
And every year goes by faster than the one before..

[Verse 3]
       E                            A
We've had that treadmill now for months
    E                         B   
I think she might've used it once
       E                          A
If I shut my mouth and keep the peace
        E                       B
She'll cook my eggs in bacon grease
  E                          A
Life'll grow you a big red rose
      E                         B
Then rip it from beneath your nose
 E                             A
Run it through the pressure machine
     E                        B
And spit you out a name tag memory
