This is the correct version of Beginner’s Mind that Conor uses live. Track 8 of The People's Key, Bright Eyes' final album. Capo 4 D F# Hold on tight beginners mind, Bm A The wheel is spinning too Em A Fast to make your move F# Bm The worst must be assumed D F# Oh how they'll try to pull and pry Bm A Away what you know now Em A Beat and beat it out F# Bm Leave a drum that makes no sound G F# Em A A snuff film on a Jumbo-tron for all the world to see Em A A cocktail napkin epitaph D Bm Some psychobabble telegram Em A Message written in the sand D Bm The tide rolls in Em A Swear you'll do the opposite D Bm Of all those tangled hypocrites Em A D Who say that the experiment has failed Bm Don't go there G You're getting nowhere A You're getting nowhere D F# Stay a while my inner child Bm A I'd like to learn your trick Em A Know what makes you tick F# Bm Nurse you when you're sick D F# Oh how you've grown so cynical Bm A Hard lines carved in your face Em A The 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 Bm Some universal elegance Em A Stack the seventh and the fifth D Bm Along the grid Em A Swear you’ll be the opposite D Bm Of all the stilted hypocrites Em A D Bm You know what made you infamous to them, don't you? G You keep starting over A You keep starting over F# You keep starting over Bm You keep starting over G Keep starting over A Keep starting over D F# Hold on tight beginners mind Bm A The currents far too strong Em A It will carry you along F# Bm Till you're just like everyone D F# Stay a while my inner child Bm A I'd like to learn your trick Em A Know what makes you tick F# Bm Nurse 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.
