Verse 1:
D         A        G         D
I come to you all dressed in sound,

D    A                  G            D
with bluebirds tripping wires to the ground,
D         A    G    D
connected to a time machine
A        G          D
that will not power down.


Verse 2:
D       A           G      D
Set the crosshairs back on one,
D        A         G        D
you said we'd only die here in a sun.
D       A              G
The way your headstone shines,
D       A        G      D
I only wish that it was mine.

(Distorted Lead over Verse 3)

Verse 3:
D      A              G       D
So set the crosshairs back on one,
D      A              G                D
I nail the loop that brings the second run,
D        G         D
past the wished on charms
D                A        G       D
and through the lens back to your living arms.

(Distorted Guitar Chords in Solo)
Dm    A7  | Dm    A7  | Dm    A7  | (x3)
D         A        G         D (x3)

Chorus:
(Asynchronous Vocal Harmony - Delay)
D         A             G       D
This time machine won't power down.
D             A             G       D
And this time machine won't power down.


Verse 4:
D         A              G       D
And still the crosshairs rest on one,
D         A              G              D
and still you rest there in the morning sun.
D              A                G             D
Still I fumble through pages of constructions on the ride.


Verse 5:
D      A             G           D
I like the blown out sound we've found,
D      A                G           D
I like the way it feels here coming down.
D       A              G
The way your headstone shines,
D       A        G      D
I only wish that it was mine.
