How To Play

Am    Em                  G
My father, working nights
 
        D             Bm
First shift, eternal light
 
              D
The curse of Adam labor
 
Am    Em                   G
Outside, in the parking lot
 
                 D                     Bm
The current of wind and the light went hot
 
             D
He held his head in terror
 
Am  Em                 G
By jove and by surprise
 
                D                     Bm
The current of lightning filled with light
 
                D
It burned his hands with symbols
 
Am     Em             G
White noise as Lucifer
 
             D               Bm
The sacred fire, the sacred fern
 
                D
Conceived with holy water
 
Am     Em               G
His radiance in the dark
 
             D              Bm
Mysterious shape or beauty mark
 
          D
As if it were Minerva
 
Am     Em             G
Breastplate of Jupiter
 
              D                  Bm
The hovering deep, he spoke the word
 
                 D
The light, the virgin creature
 
Am   Em              G                    D           Bm
All dreams and all disease are fantasy features, ill-conceived
 
            D
Illusions worth remembering
 
Am   Em             G
My father, late at night
 
            D                    Bm
Forbidding death, he kissed the light
 
     D
As Jupiter transfigured
 
Am    Em       G              D             Bm
I need you to change me, prevent you, persuade me
 
    D
By jove
 
Am   Em          G      D             Bm
I need you, sensation, my virtue, persuasion
 
    D
By jove
 
Am         Em
Father of light
 
           G
Father of death
 
              B7                    Em
Give us your wisdom, give us your breath

Summoner says that Jupiter is the loneliest planet
 
Am         Em
Red right eye
 
            G
Put in its place
 
            B7                Em
Under your foot, carpenter's cape
 
            D          G              B7

Am           Em
Floundering star
 
                 G
Failed that you are
 
          B7
Fevering pitch
 
           Em
Figure of speech

Say it with faith
 
             G

Say it to my face
 
           Em
Put me in place

Wandering star, clean up your pace
 
           D           G             B7

Am         Em
Father of light
