Paper Tiger

Song Author Beck Lyrics by: Beck Performer: Beck Submitted by: cazteclo
[E]    [E7]    [Bm]    
[E]Just like[E7] a paper [Bm]tiger
[E]Torn apar[E7]t by idle [Bm]hands
[E]Through th[E7]e helter skelter m[Bm]orning
[E]Fix yourse[E7]lf while you still c[Bm]an   
[E]No more as[E7]hes to a[Bm]shes   
[E]No more ci[E7]nders from the [Bm]sky   
[E]All the la[E7]ws of creat[Bm]ion   
[E]Tell a dea[E7]d man how to [Bm]die   

[E]O d[C]eserts down bel[A]ow us
[E]And s[C]torms up ab[A]ove  
[E]Like a str[C]ay dog gone def[A]ective
[E]Like a p[A]aper t[G]iger [D] in the [E]sun  

[E]Looking t[E7]hrough a broken diamond[Bm]    
[E]To make t[E7]he past what it should b[Bm]e   
[E]Through t[E7]he ruins and the weathe[Bm]r   
[E]Capsized b[E7]oats in the sea[Bm]    

[E]O d[C]eserts down bel[A]ow us
[E]And s[C]torms up ab[A]ove  
[E]Like a str[C]ay dog gone def[A]ective
[E]Like a p[A]aper t[G]iger [D] in the [E]sun  

[E]We're jus[E7]t holding on to n[Bm]othing
[E]To see ho[E7]w long nothing l[Bm]asts   

[E]O d[C]eserts down bel[A]ow us
[E]And s[C]torms up ab[A]ove  
[E]Like a str[C]ay dog gone def[A]ective
[E]Like a p[A]aper t[G]iger [D] in the [E]sun  

[E]There's o[E7]ne road to the mo[Bm]rning
[E]There's o[E7]ne road to the tr[Bm]uth   
[E]There's o[E7]ne road back to c[Bm]ivilization
[E]But there[E7]'s no road back to [Bm]you....


Just like a paper tiger
Torn apart by idle hands
Through the helter skelter morning
Fix yourself while you still can
No more ashes to ashes
No more cinders from the sky
All the laws of creation
Tell a dead man how to die

O deserts down below us
And storms up above
Like a stray dog gone defective
Like a paper tiger in the sun

Looking through a broken diamond
To make the past what it should be
Through the ruins and the weather
Capsized boats in the sea

O deserts down below us
And storms up above
Like a stray dog gone defective
Like a paper tiger in the sun

We're just holding on to nothing
To see how long nothing lasts

O deserts down below us
And storms up above
Like a stray dog gone defective
Like a paper tiger in the sun

There's one road to the morning
There's one road to the truth
There's one road back to civilization
But there's no road back to you....
