Dm
So tired
Bbm
Soul searching 
Am
I followed the sounds to a cathedral
Dm            Bbm                     Am                                            
Imagine my surprise to find that they were produded by Brian Eno

Verse:
Dm
Past the gates
Bbm
Quite stark
Am                       Asus2
The roses trimmed and the windows dark
Dm                       Bbm
I see the walls through a limestone crack
Am                     Asus2
Not red, not blue, not yellow, but black
Gm                        Am (barre)
And all the space left for you
Gm
If the sky was synthesized you'd probably know

Dm           Bbm
He taught me many things
Am               Asus2
The wisdom of o' bleak stratagems
Dm               Bbm
The prophet of a sapphire soul
Am               Asus2
Presented through creative freedoms
Gm                      Am (barre)
And everything I say is true
Gm
'Cause if i was telling lies it'd probably show

Chorus:
D                   Bm
I can tell that he's kind of smiling
G
But what does he know?
D               Bm
We're always one step behind him
G
He's Brian Eno (Brian Eno)
A
Brian Eno! (Brian Eno!)

Verse:
When I was stuck he'd make me memorize elaborate curses
Tinctures and formulas 
To ditch the choir and flip the verses
My whole foundation came unglued
When I tried to humanize by ambient light

Chorus:
Dipping swords in metaphors yeah 
But what does he know?
He's go the whole world behind him 
He's Brian Eno (Brian Eno)
Brian Eno! (Brian Eno!)

Breakdown:
Dm         Bbm                Am
He promised pretty worlds and all the silence I could dream of 
Dm         Bbm
Brian Peter George St. John
Le Baptiste de la Salle Eno

D                     Bm                      G
Well all alone by the oldest stone where the shade trees grow 
(What does he know?)
D                  Bm                     G
The creature by the water feature with a ghostly glow 
(Brian Eno!)
D                           Bm
Yeah, he's making sure that time's preserved well 
G
We reap what we sow 
(What does he know?)
D               Bm
We're always one step behind him 
G
He's Brian Eno! (Brian Eno!)
D                         Bm
Yeah, I can tell that he's doing well yeah
G
What does he know? (What does he know?!)

I'm always one step behind him

He's Brian Eno! (Brian Eno!)
