VERSE
Bm           
Nobokov is sun-licked now
 D
Upon the beach at Grunewald
Bm           
Brilliant and naked just
    G
The way that authors look

VERSE
Bm           
Clare and Lady Manners drink
  D
Until the other cows go home
Bm           
Gossip till their lips are bleeding
G
Politics and all

CHORUS
              Em                  A
I'd rather be high (I'd rather be high)
              Em                    A
I'd rather be flying (I'd rather be flying)
              Dm7
I'd rather be dead
             F#m7
Or out of my head
                    Dm7                      D
Than training these guns on those men in the sand
              [A]
I'd rather be high

VERSE
    Bm           
The Thames was black, the tower dark
  D
I flew to Cairo, find my regiment
Bm           
City's full of generals
    G
And generals full of shit

VERSE
  Bm           
I stumble to the graveyard 
      D
And I lay down by my parents, whisper
Bm           
Just remember duckies
     G
Everybody gets got

CHORUS
              Em                  A
I'd rather be high (I'd rather be high)

I'd rather be flying (I'd rather be flying)
              Dm7
I'd rather be dead
             F#m7
Or out of my head
                    Dm7                      D
Than training these guns on those men in the sand
              [A]
I'd rather be high

MIDDLE 8
    D                                    A
I'm seventeen and my looks can prove it
    D                               A
I'm so afraid that I will lose it
    E
I'd rather smoke and phone my ex
   D7                             [A]
Be pleading for some teenage sex, yeah ...

I'd rather be flying (I'd rather be flying)

I'd rather be dead
