No one knows where the ladder goes
Bm                            F#7
You're going to lose what you love the most
Em                  G
You're not alone in anything
Em                   G
You're not unique in dying
Bm                     F#7
I feel estranged every now and then
Bm                  F#7
Fall asleep reading science fiction
Em                    G
I want to fly in your silver ship
Em                 G      A
Let Jesus hang and Buddha sit

D
It's on now
             F#m
The days are long now
                G
The ups and the sundowns
               A
And a twisting mind
               D
If I've got to go first
              F#m
I'll do it on my terms
             G                        A
I'm tired of traitors always changing sides
          D       A  G
They were friends of mine

Bm                       F#7
Don't hang around as the promise breaks
Bm                       F#7
You'll be there when the next one's made
Em                 G
Kiss the feet of a charlatan
Em             G
Some imagined freedom
Bm              F#7
All the rest is predictable
Bm                     F#7
You can say you're the first to know
Em                 G
Bought a mantra to concentrate
Em           G       A
Car alarm or hissing snake

D
I know now
                  F#m
How it's going to turn now
           G
You got to calm down
                A
Or I'll lose my place
                  D
Got to get to the center
                  F#m
Got to get to the concert
               G
Run off with a dancer
             A
Going to celebrate

Em                A
We'll welcome the new age
D          G  G/F# Em
Covered in warrior paint
                A             D
Lights from the jungle to the sky
Em         A
See now, a star's born
D                 G    G/F# Em 
Looks just like a blood orange
              A                D
Don't it just make you want to cry
          D     A  G
Precious friend of mine?

Bm                     F#7
Well, I know when it's finally done
Bm                     F#7
This whole life's a hallucination
Em                  G
You're not alone in anything
Em                  G
You're not alone in trying 
B
