INTRO
 
E             B7                       E          E7
Sometimes the windows combine with the seams in a way
C                  F#m7b5                      G#7sus4
That twitches on a peak at the place where the spirit was slain
C#m      C
One foot leads to another
E                       Emaj7
Night's for sleep, blue curtains, covers
D                           Dm
Sequins in the eyes
A
That's a fine time to dine
Edim                                            E
Divine who's circling, feeding the cards to the midwives
B7                   E
Who love those alien days
    B7            E
The nonstop alien days
B7            E
Mmm the alien days
 
E
 
 
VERSE 1
 
E                   B7                  E          E7
Must've skipped the ship and joined the team for a ride
C                 F#m7b5                 G#7sus4
A couple hours to learn the controls and commandeer both my eyes (hey!)
C#m            C
Be quick dear, times are uncertain
E                   Emaj7
One month crawling, next year blurring
D                   Dm
Decades in the drain
A
Monograms on the brain
Edim                                             E
Decide what's working and what's moved on to the last phase
    B7              E
The floodgate alien days
  B7               E
I love those alien days
B7            E
Mmm the alien days
 
E
 
 
BRIDGE
 
F                  G                  C
When the peels are down it feels like traveling in style
F              G              A
You don't need wings to hover forty ton stones for a mile
    Dm
And in the summer, virgin visions
D6
Mindless humming numbers can't
F             G                 C#m7b5
decide if the day's supposed to smile
 
 
INSTRUMENTAL
 
E B7 E B7
 
A Edim7
G#7sus4 G#7
C#m C
 
E          B7                     E         E7
Today find infinite ways it could be plenty worse
C                        F#m7b5
It's a blessing but it's also a curse
 
F#m7b5
 
 
VERSE 2
 
F                    G            C
Those days taught me everything I know
F              G           A
How to catch a feeling and when to let it go
Dm
How all the scheming, soulless creatures
D
Can't find dreamer's honey in the hive
F       G                 C#m7b5
If it's right beneath the nose
 
 
OUTRO
 
F                     G                 C
And when the light is new the sky shows trembling cartoons
F              G              A
You don't need smoke to cover most of the world in a gloom
Dm
But here comes racer number seven
D6
Watch my fingers ripping out the lines
F     G                   C#m7b5
If it looks like we could lose
F     G                   C#m7b5
If it looks like we could lose
F     G                   C#m7b5
If it looks like we could lose
F     G                   C#m7b5
If it looks like we could lose
 
F G C#m7b5
