[Intro]

Am (x4)

Am                F
Smoke clouds have thickened 
   C             G
to black out the stars 
    Am           C
the night sky is lit now 
   F             G
by headlights of cars 
        Am            F
and the moon holds no purpose 
    C           G        Am    F G G 
but pulling the tides anymore 


[Instrumental] (x2)

Am F C G
Am C F G 
        

[Verse 1]

Am
Blow out the candles 
Am
blow out the candles 
C
throw on the light switch 
    G                       Am
and bask in the fluorescent glow 
                Am
we’re guided by satellites 
              C
we don’t need stars anymore 
          G
can’t see stars anymore 


[Chorus 1]

       Am          F
With a nine on the bortle 
      C             G
we’ve blown out the stars 
Am              F
smashed all the lanterns 
   C             G
to burn down the barns 
         Am            F
and with less than one hundredth 
   C                 G          Dm*
in sight to guide us home after dark 
Em    Em
we’re lost 
 

[Instrumental]

Am F C G

Am F C G  C  E

[Verse 2]

    Am
The streetlights have killed them 
    Am
the street lights have killed them 
      C                      G
we’ve laid to rest gods in a tomb 

born of city lights 
    Am
and out in the flatlands 
   Am
we thought that we’d found them 
    C
but still the horizon 
    G
did glow like a brush fire 


[Chorus 2]

       Am          F
With a nine on the bortle 
      C             G
we’ve blown out the stars 
Am              F
smashed all the lanterns 
   C             G
to burn down the barns 
        Am            F
and the moon holds no purpose 
     C           C          G
save pulling the tides on a planet 
G            Dm *
encrusted in fluorescent lights 


[Instrumental]

Am F C G
Am C F G
Am F C G  C  E
            Accelerando  


[Bridge]

Am                F
Smoke clouds have thickened 
   C             G
to black out the stars 
    Am           C
the night sky is lit now 
   F             G
by headlights of cars 
        Am            F
and the moon holds no purpose 
    C           G        Am    F G G 
but pulling the tides anymore 


[Instrumental]

[Verse 3]

Am             F
300 miles we’d sail off the coast 
   C                    G
to be reunited with the skies of our hosts 
       Am
and at night soon the rivers 
F                             C    G
reflect nothing more than the moon 


[Chorus 1]

       Am          F
With a nine on the bortle 
      C             G
we’ve blown out the stars 
Am              F
smashed all the lanterns 
   C             G
to burn down the barns 
         Am            F
and with less than one hundredth 
   C                 G          Dm *
in sight to guide us home after dark 
Em    Em
we’re lost

[Verse 4]

Am        Am
300 miles 300 miles 
    C
out into the ocean 
     G
we’d sail to remember them 
Am  Em Em Em * Am   Em Em Em *    C    G
300 miles out into the ocean we’d sail 


[Chorus 2]

       Am          F
With a nine on the bortle 
      C             G
we’ve blown out the stars

to burn down the barns 
        Am            F
and the moon holds no purpose
