Intro: E

E                     C#m                     F#m   
(Born to) Born to multiply, born to gaze into night skies,
         A             F#m      E
All you want's one more Saturday.
                      C#m
But look here, until then
                       F#m
They're gonna buy your nice time
             A                        F#m 
So keep your wick in the air and your feet in the fetters
B
To the day.
                  E
You come in doing cartwheels
                    B
We all crawl out by ourselves
                      E
And your shape on the dance floor
                           B
Will have me thinking such filth and gouge my eyes.
           C#m         A
You'd be damned to be one of us girl
C#m          A
Faced with a dodo's conundrum
E     F#m                   A
Ah, I felt like I could just fly
     G#m                          B
But nothing happened every time I tried.
         E
Wooh Ooooh

                  C#m
A dual tone on the wall
                                 F#m
The selfless fool who hoped he’d save us all
        A              F#m            E
Never dreamt of such sterile hands
                             C#m
You keep them folded in your lap
                    F#m
And raise them up to   beg for scraps
              A                         F#m   
You know he's holding you down with the tips of his fingers
B
Just the same
                        E
Will you be pulled from the ocean
                  B
But just a minute too late
                E
Or changed by a potion
                         B
And find a handsome young mate for you to love

          C#m                          A
You'll be damned to pining through the window panes, you know
C#m                             A        E   F#m
You'll change your life for any ordinary Joe
                         A
Well do it now or grow old
                G#m                          B
Your nightmares only need a year or two to unfold

Been alone since you were twenty-one
You haven't laughed since January
You try and make like this is so much fun
But we know it to be quite contrary

La la la la la la la

Dare to be one of us girl
Faced with the android's conundrum
Ah, I felt like I should just cry
But nothing happens every time I take one on the chin
You’re Himmler in your coat you don't know how long I have been
Watching the lantern dim starved of oxygen
So give me your hand and let's jump out the window.
