E             B7                       E          E7
Sometimes the windows combine with the seams in a way
C                  D7                          G#7sus4
That twitches on a peak at the place where the spirit was slain
C#m      C                   
One foot leads to another
E                       Emaj7
Night's for sleep, blue curtains, covers
D                           Dm
Sequins in the eyes
A
That's a fine time to dine
Edim                                            E
Divine who's circling, feeding the cards to the midwives
B7                   E
Who love those alien days
    B7            E
The nonstop alien days
B7            E
Mmm the alien days

E

E                   B7                  E          E7
Must've skipped the ship and joined the team for a ride
C                 D7                     G#7sus4
A couple hours to learn the controls and commandeer both my eyes (hey!)
C#m            C         
Be quick dear, times are uncertain
E                   Emaj7
One month crawling, next year blurring
D                   Dm
Decades in the drain
A
Monograms on the brain
Edim                                             E
Decide what's working and what's moved on to the last phase
    B7              E
The floodgate alien days
  B7               E
I love those alien days
B7            E
Mmm the alien days

E

F                  G                  C
When the peels are down it feels like traveling in style
F              G              A
You don't need wings to hover forty ton stones for a mile
    Dm
And in the summer, virgin visions
D6                                                
Mindless humming numbers can't 
F             G                 C7#9b5
decide if the day's supposed to smile

E B7 E B7

A Edim7 
G#7sus4 G#7
C#m C 

E          B7                     E         E7
Today find infinite ways it could be plenty worse
C                        D7
It's a blessing but it's also a curse

D7

F                    G            C
Those days taught me everything I know
F              G           A
How to catch a feeling and when to let it go
Dm
How all the scheming, soulless creatures
D
Can't find dreamer's honey in the hive
F       G                 C7#9b5
If it's right beneath the nose

F                     G                 C
And when the light is new the sky shows trembling cartoons
F              G              A
You don't need smoke to cover most of the world in a gloom
Dm
But here comes racer number seven
D6
Watch my fingers ripping out the lines
F     G                   C7#9b5
If it looks like we could lose
F     G                   C7#9b5
If it looks like we could lose
F     G                   C7#9b5
If it looks like we could lose
F     G                   C7#9b5
If it looks like we could lose
