Mark Eitzel, "Helium"

This transcription is from the album _West_ on Warner Bros., released early
Peter Buck of R.E.M. plays great acoustic guitar on this song and
throughout this beautiful, haunting album. This is Track 3, my favorite song.

Verse 1:
B5	E		B5	E
Life is short in the laughing gallery
B5	E		     B5		E
A secret handshake gets you ice cream and a key
To a brand new car that only drives into walls
They'll cut their eyes, All they want...

Pattern 1  for chorus (approximate arpeggiations):


 	(Em)	  (G/F#)    (G)	    (D)  --> these are the chords being outlined

D(add G)   C
Is your silence

D(add G)   C
Is your silence

D(add G)   C
Is your silence

(Pattern 1)
Breathing helium

(Pattern 1)
Throw away the key

(Pattern 1)
Dissolve in the air

Never free

Verse 2: same music as verse 1
Chorus: same music

Bridge: F7 to C (with feedbacky guitar solo)
	end with 2x Pattern 1

Verse 3: same music as verse 1
