Capo 4

D F#Hold on tight beginners mind,
Bm AThe wheel is spinning too
Em AFast to make your move
F# BmThe worst must be assumed
D F# Oh how they'll try to pull and pry
Bm AAway what you know now
Em ABeat and beat it out
F# BmLeave a drum that makes no sound
G F# Em AA snuff film on a Jumbo-tron for all the world to see
Em AA cocktail napkin epitaph
D Bm Some psychobabble telegram
Em AMessage written in the sand
D BmThe tide rolls in
Em ASwear you'll do the opposite
D BmOf all those tangled hypocrites
Em A D Who say that the experiment has failed
BmDon't go there
GYou're getting nowhere
AYou're getting nowhere
D F#Stay a while my inner child
Bm AI'd like to learn your trick
Em A Know what makes you tick
F# BmNurse you when you're sick
D F#Oh how you've grown so cynical
Bm AHard lines carved in your face
Em AThe sunshine so cliché
F# Bm Just like love and pain
G F# Em A You tried your best on the Rorschach test but there's just nothing to see
Em A Heard terabytes of perfect pitch
D BmSome universal elegance
Em A Stack the seventh and the fifth
D BmAlong the grid
Em ASwear you’ll be the opposite
D BmOf all the stilted hypocrites
Em A D Bm You know what made you infamous to them, don't you?
G You keep starting over
AYou keep starting over
F#You keep starting over
BmYou keep starting over
GKeep starting over
AKeep starting over
D F#Hold on tight beginners mind
Bm A The currents far too strong
Em AIt will carry you along
F# BmTill you're just like everyone
D F#Stay a while my inner child
Bm AI'd like to learn your trick
Em A Know what makes you tick
F# BmNurse you when you're sick
G F# Em A The other Capo 1 version of this song has the right tonality, but in the wrong
Capo position. I use Barre chords on the F#, Bm, G and the A chord for the “getting nowhere” and “starting over” lines to give it a fuller sound.
