World in a Wall By Martin Tielli Transcribed by Tim Allard guitar tuned down 2 steps d------ A----- F------ C----- G----- D----- C The X has moved out. Em Out of this house F (in)to the outside around it. D5 I watched her feet pound it. C It didn't work out. C First there's a click, Em then there's a breeze F somewhere outside in the trees, D5 and the bathroom just sits C with the memories of a million shits. Em F D5 C There's a world in a wall Em that's dark and it's small. F Here gathers the mighty dust ball D5 on a pink fiberglass bed C for the screwdriver left there. Em The mite and the spider. F The multi legged wonder D5 that last week had scared her C and broke our silence with laughter. Em F D5 C She's like a mouse, Em I know she's around. F It's a gnawing sound. D5 Leaves little brown poohs C from a little pink bum. Em Inside the closet. F Around the files. D5 Behind the crates. C She's barely adolescent. Em Up on the counter - F that's where I caught her - D5 little pink tongue C licking the butter. C There's a world in a wall. Em The mighty dust ball. F The mouse and the spider D5 pause by each other C and move on.
