Em Bm Time for the unrehearsed entrance Em Bm All that you are is at stake (* this is the way he sings it nowadays*) D Bm Em Bm A Down the cocktail while it's laughing at you for heaven's sake G I can't be your protector Bm >From those deliberate mistakes. Em Bm Between the "can't" and the "Maybe" Em Bm A lifetime's hovering in the wings Em Bm Grasp the nettle, bite the bullet Em Bm Push your own buttons and pull your own strings D Bm Em Bm A Name your poison while you're got he power, a hundred proof G I can't be your protector Bm >From self-neglect or abuse G This is not a rehearsal Bm And fear is not an excuse. C And if you won't step out on the boards Bm you'll find your place already on the shelf C Bm You can only find the sum of your parts yourself Em Bm Unprepared and unready Em Bm Is that an excuse or a point of view? Em Bm You can block out the words in anagrammatical swordplay Em Bm But it's your own life you'll be running through D Bm Em Bm A Time to drink a cocktail of your own invention for pity's sake G I can't be your protector Bm I won't be there when you wake G To honour all the hidden intentions Bm In your deliberate mistakes G Bm Behind your deliberate mistakes. Em B (bass: e) Bm (bass: e) Esus6 (b, c#, e over an e) Deliberation could be mistaken for coldness of the heart; (repeat this riff) Procrastination won't get you anywhere except aloof and apart; What's the golden opportunity you're hanging on here for - isn't it just this? Go! Start! --- now here comes the bit that's impossible to write down. I'll just give the notes and leave the extremelöy unsteady beat to your own ears! --- b e' a a b g e e g a b e' a a b g e e g a g e Unrehearsed and unready, that's what we are, what we've all been cast into It's not four square, the beat's unsteady but This is this and making something of it's up to you. repeat end riff: e g a g e Em B (bass: e) An unexpected exit's always waiting Em B (bass: e) Although it seems it's something you can bluff your way through Em B (bass: e) Spit that wooden spoon out of your mouth Em B (bass: e) And eat up, the moment's long overdue D Bm Em Bm A Take your medicine and face whatever the future brings G I can't be your protector Bm Can't take you under my wings G This is not a rehearsal Bm This is the real thing G B2 This is for real.
