1.We were the gentlest renegades; we sang in the silentest corners;

 

we noted the breakdown of systems and delighted in small, unrepeatable

accidents of understanding, accidents of understanding,

††††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††† ††E

accidents of understanding, photographs of grace.

2. It was writ in indelible cadence in the subclause beneath the invective,

 

where the fiery minions of goodwill deliberate loud and offhandedly

††††††††††††††††††††† A††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† E

accidents of understanding, accidents of understanding,

††††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††† ††E

††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††† Bm

And, pretending that the alley was the sky,

set off for parts unknown, set off for parts unknown.

3. Yeah, we were the silliest theorists; we pin-danced with legions of angels,

 

while remembering that the important thing is delighting in small unrepeatable

accidents of understanding, accidents of understanding,

accidents of understanding, photographs of grace.
