D5 (swell) I was down in the city on a miracle street I flailed like a swimmer through the summer heat G5 I was waiting for a friend that I needed to meet And I's hopin' she was bringin' with her something sweet Bb5 (Riff 1 x5) And I's hopin' for an open little opening And I suffer for a groovy little happening D5 But it's all going wrong just like I sing in that song The song I wrote about you that they put on TV G5 The TV that I gave you 'cause you wanted to see (Riff 2 x4) But all you saw were spaces where the people used to be Bb5 The hundred bastard voids with their pull on me In the valley of death you'll be breathless and free Dm Dm (Riff 3 x5) Gm Gm Bb Bb Dm (Riff 1 x4) You'll be dancing like a fool by the swollen sea You'll be twitching like a drug in a pharmacy Gm You'll be swatting at the flies in the pavillion Where the millionare just blew a gazillion Bb (Riff 2 x3) Fingernails are all hot vermillion When the traffic grinds down to a standstill-ion Dm And the mynah birds are pecking at the carrion (Riff 3 x5) And you read it already in Hyperion Gm And you read about my trial in the Clarion A sack full of ashes I've been carrying Bb When the lights turn green I dissolve the screen When the lights turn red I put the whole thing to bed D5 (chopping) (Dm*) Well I got a fever And I'm feeling fainter G5 (Gm*) I'm a dim receiver I'm a Cold War painter Bb5 (Bb*) If you can just hold still (Dm*) I will make you all so beautiful D5 (Riff 2 x4) D5 (Dm*) G5 G5 (Gm*) Bb5 (Bb*) When the lights turn blue I know what to do I'll drown my tomorrows in an ocean or two Dm (Dm*) (Riff 3 x6) And the pretty little things with their magnets and rings Blooming like a flower through a series of springs Gm (Gm*) Thank you Fate and the freight that she brings Thank you Fortuna and the song that she sings Bb (Bb*) Thank you to my manager for letting me live Thank you to my friends and the friends that you're with Dm (Dm*) (Riff 1 x4) Dm (Dm*) Gm (Gm*) Gm (Gm*) Bb (Bb*) (Riff 2 x2) Thank you to the Lord who created all this (Bb*) There's a whole lotta hurt before you get to the bliss Dm (Dm*) (Riff 3 x4) Why even Jesus Christ was betrayed by a kiss (Dm*) But that was long before that he got in show biz Gm (Gm*) Well I understand the land and the land ain't no sea (Gm*) (Bb*) But when I try to walk I'm sinking you see (Riff 1 x1) Fill:
