Intro:
| Gm Dm | Gm Dm |

Verse 1:
Gm
Salute the sun,
                                 Dm
I've been sitting here all night long.

Hauling rock over Buddha with the Longhorn,
Gm
Got a hole, so rip a pocket off my uniform.
Dm
With the Blackwatch Boys,
 
Get your heads down.
Gm       Dm
Oooh.....Ooh


Verse 2:
Gm
Duty calls, but it's way too late,
            Dm
I'm too far gone.

Waiting for Godot, 'hell with my pants down.
Gm
Cracked the stash,

Sent me crying in the midday sun.
Dm
I miss my dog and I miss my freedom.
Gm       Dm
Oooh.....Ooh
Gm       Dm
Oo-oh....O-oh

They know I'm here just out of sight.
Bb                        F

Verse 3:
Gm
I hate the things I think about you, 

When I'm all alone.
Dm
I know you're tough,

But I've been gone for so long.
Gm
I play the memories of you,
          Dm
Inside my head.

So all these pictures of us,
         Gm         Dm
Burn and radiate... 
Gm
Watch the clouds and I'm falling,
                    Dm
Falling through the cracks 

Head beats and my heart is pounding fast.
Gm                             Dm
Off the ground into the starry dark, 
                     Gm         Dm
Into your arms, I'm falling.....Ooh
Gm        Dm
Ooo-h.....Oo-h

Notes:
1. "The song is meant to feel sort of like an abstract dream," Garbage singer 
Shirley Manson recalled. "The inspiration came from a story I had read in Los 
Angeles Times about the opium trade and also from watching the documentary 
Restrepo. It's not literal in any sense whatsoever but it's a song about 
disorientation and delusion and the human struggle to stay sane in the face of 
insanity."
