Capo 1

F               A
Hold on tight beginners mind,
   Dm                 C
The wheel is spinning too
Gm                    C
Fast to make your move
    A              Dm
The worst must be assumed
   F                  A  
Oh how they'll try to pull and pry 
Dm                 C
Away what you know now
Gm                   C
Beat and beat it out 
        A                        Dm
Leave a drum that makes no sound
  Bb              A             Gm                    C
A snuff film on a Jumbo-tron for all the world to see

  Gm              C
A cocktail napkin epitaph
     F            Dm          
Some psychobabble telegram
 Gm                    C
Message written in the sand
   F             Dm
The tide rolls in
Gm                  C
Swear you'll do the opposite
   F                 Dm
Of all those tangled hypocrites
    Gm             C            F                  
Who say that the experiment has failed
Dm
Don't go there
Bb
You're getting nowhere
C
You're getting nowhere

F                A
Stay a while my inner child
    Dm                 C
I'd like to learn your trick
Gm                      C       
Know what makes you tick

A                     Dm
Nurse you when you're sick
   F                   A
Oh how you've grown so cynical
     Dm                       C
Hard lines carved in your face
    Gm                C
The sunshine so cliché 
          A       Dm 
Just like love and pain
    Bb                     A                          Gm                 C                   
You tried your best on the Rorschach test but there's just nothing to see

     Gm            C   
Heard terabytes of perfect pitch
     F                 Dm
Some universal elegance
Gm                        C 
Stack the seventh and the fifth
 F            Dm
Along the grid
Gm                      C
Swear you’ll be the opposite
   F               Dm
Of all the stilted hypocrites
    Gm                 C           F     Dm                    
You know what made you infamous to them, don't you?
Bb 
You keep starting over
C
You keep starting over
A
You keep starting over
Dm
You keep starting over
Bb
Keep starting over
C
Keep starting over
F               A
Hold on tight beginners mind
      Dm              C 
The currents far too strong
        Gm              C
It will carry you along
            A                 Dm
Till you're just like everyone

F               A
Stay a while my inner child
    Dm                C
I'd like to learn your trick
Gm                      C       
Know what makes you tick
A                     Dm
Nurse you when you're sick

Bb A Gm C
