(verse)


G#m                     B
There's a fragile tension
                    E     B     A#m
That's keeping us going
G#m                 B
It may not last forever
                    E     B     A#m
But oh, when it's flowing


(chorus)


Ebm                G#m           Eb
There's something magical in the air

Fill: C#    E

Ebm                G#m           Eb
Something so tragic we have to care

Fill: C#    E


(verse)


G#m                     B
There's a strange obsession
                    E     B     A#m
That's drawing us nearer
G#m                 B
We don't understand it
                    E     B     A#m
It never gets clearer


(chorus)


Ebm                G#m           Eb
There's something mystical in our genes

Fill: C#    E

Ebm                G#m           Eb
So simplistic it kicks and screams

Fill: C#    E


(bridge)


Gm               F#
Oh when we're teetering
E                 Eb          
On the edge of collapse
C#           B       Bb 
Nothing can keep us down


E||-------------------|-------------------|------2------------| x2
B||------4------------|-------------------|-------------------|
G||----4--------------|----3--------------|----4--------------|
D||--4----------------|--4----------------|--4----------------|
A||-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|
E||-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|



(verse)


G#m                     B
There's a dizzying feeling
                    E     B     A#m
That's keeping us flying
G#m                     B
Through glittering gardens
                    E     B     A#m
Without even trying


(chorus)


Ebm                G#m           Eb
There's something radical in our hands

Fill: C#    E

Ebm     G#m            Eb
Nothing logical to our plans

Fill: C#    E

End: G#m
