       F#                      A
       A birdy and a hand for life's rich demand
              E                     F#       {Intro}
       The insurgency began and you missed it
       F#                     A
       I looked for it and I found it
                       E                  F#    F#7
       Miles Standish proud congratulate me
            D
       Philanders tie, the murders shoe

       {same as before}

       Life's rich demand creates supply and demand
       Of the powers the only book that matters
       Silence means security silence means approval
       We have Zenith on the TV tiger run around the tree
       Follow the leader run the churn into butter

       D
       Let's begin again begin the begin
       F#                       A

             E               F#           {Intro}
       The mythology begins the begin
       F#
       Answer me a question I can't itemize
                        A
       I can't think clearly look to me for reason
                                    E                  F#   F#7
       It's not there I can't even rhyme begin the begin


       F                             G {keys walkdown}   C#
       Example the finest example is you


       F            G      F        G
       Let's begin again begin the begin
       F           G     F      G

Fall On Me

         Dm                Am
        There's a problem feathers iron
         Dm                Am
        Bargain buildings weights and pullies
         Dm                Am                Dm                  Am
        Feathers hit the ground before the weight can leave the air
         Dm       G       C       Am       
              G7
        Buy the sky and sell the sky and tell the sky and tell the sky

       {It sounds good to walk up to the C chord like this:}

       (A) ---0-2--| C chord
       (E) -3------|
                 C    Dm            F    G
        Don't   Fall        On     Me
        {it repeats this 3 or 4 times then...}
                F         G   F   Fmaj7
        (It's over It's over me .....   )

        There's the progress we have found
        A way to talk around the problem
        Building towered foresight isn't anything at all
        Buy the sky and sell the sky and bleed the sky and tell the sky

         Am           F
        Well I could keep it above
         Am            G                     Am
        But then it wouldn't be sky anymore
                 F                              Dm               G
        So if I send it to you you've got to promise to keep it home

         Dm      G       C        Am      
        G      C      Am
        Buy the sky and sell the sky and lift your arms up to the sky
             Dm              G
        And ask the sky and ask the sky  (Chorus again)

E                      A2  A
Night time fell at the opening,
In the final act of the beginning of time.
Hyena take your role, the stage is set.
The town is safe again tonight

             Hyena (and all that I've cried through)
             Hyena (God knows you're doin' that, don't you?)

        [The open chord sequence with the moving bass line is:

   {lyr: don't you?}

E                     A2   A
Hyena, sister look to your hand
Man you serve communal interest,
She'll tell you when and where and how and why you'd hurt
A beautiful young lady

Hyena (I see the day ahead)
Hyena (and all that I've cried through)
Hyena (God knows you're doin' that, don't you?)

The only thing to fear is fearlessness
The bigger the weapon the greater the fear
Hyena is ambassador to here

Night time fell like the closing
Meager pay, but recognition
Hyena crawls on his belly out
The town is safe again tonight

Hyena (I see the changes, man)
Hyena (Goin' on 'cross the way)
Hyena (I see my road ahead)
Hyena (Don't know if I should stay)
Hyena (I see you holding him,)
Hyena (and all that I've cried through)
Hyena (God knows you're doin' that, don't you?)

                      E                      A
        I took a picture that I'll have to send
                     E                        A
        People here are friendly and content
                     E                   A
        People here are colorful and bright
                            E                      A
        The flowers often bloom at night

                D              C      G

        (repeat pattern for verse)
        There's something here I find hard to ignore
        There's something that I've never seen before
        Amanita is the name they
        Cover over everything

I Believe

       {On this song, you can simulate that little guitar melody by starting
        off with a plain jane E-chord, then playing an Esus4, and then stretch
        your pinky down to the 4th fret of the D string to make that F# note.}

              E
        When I was young and full of grace
                   E
              and spirited a rattlesnake
              E
        When I was young and fever fell
             E
        My spirit I will not tell
                   A                  F#m
        You're on your honor not to tell

             E
        I believe in coyotes and time as an abstract
            E                                A
        Explain the change the difference between
                           F#m                       B
        What you want and what you need there's the key
                        G#m
        Your adventure for today what do you do
            A                      B
        Between the hours of the day

         E  Esus4  E  B      E  
E   B E      Esus4       B                F#m
        I ---  I --------        I ----      believe      my shirt is wearing thin
                            A
        And change is what I believe in

        {same as before}

        When I was young and give and take
        And foolish said my fool awake
        When I was young and fever fell
        My spirit I will not tell
        You're on your honor on your honor

        Trust in your calling make sure your calling's true
        Think of others the others think of you
        Silly rule golden words make practice practice makes perfect
        Perfect is a fault and fault lines change

        I believe my humor's wearing thin
        And change is what I believe in
       {break  C#m    A     C#m    A      
 A    B}

        I believe my shirt is wearing thin
        And change is what I believe in

        When I was young and full of grace
        And spirit hid a rattlesnake
        When I was young and fever fell
        My spirit I will not tell
        You're on your honor not to tell
         B
        I believe in example
         G#m
        I believe my throat hurts
           A                           B
        Example is the checker to the key

        I believe my humor's wearing thin
        And I believe the holds are slipping

        I believe my shirt is wearing thin
        And change is what I believe in
       {I Believe it ends on a C#m}

WHAT IF WE GIVE IT AWAY?

G       A      G              A
On the outside underneath the wall
All the money couldn't buy
You're mistaken no one's standing there
For the record no one tried

Em    A        Em    A
Oh... I.....   try to
G                   D
What if we give it away...?

Overlooking with a hollow eye
What's pretending is it right
Eye for order a hand for what's in line
Couldn't follow couldn't write

Em    A        Em    A
Oh... I.....   try to
G                   D
What if we give it away...?

A        D      C    G
And our life is fine here
A         D       C   Em
Stitch it on your tie here

Here's the trailer Tom
A year has come and gone
We're not moving was it right
Take the order sew it on your tie
We couldn't follow couldn't try
