[Intro]
Em G x2 

[Verse]
Em
Blow the electric candle out

Let yourself slip away a while
G
Into the phosphorescent blue
                             B       
That's swimming through the tubes in you
C
'Cuz you are made of water

Slowly synchronising with the moon
G                                 B
That rises from the sea in front you

[Chorus]
                 C
Like a blood red balloon
                  Em
Like a blood red balloon

[Verse]
Em
Wandering naked though the street

Forewarning everyone you meet
    G
You hold their fortune in your hand
                           B
See heaven in a grain of sand
   C
Converse with the Spiritual Sun

On Primrose Hill, NW1
    G                              B
Emerging ghostly from the morning dew

[Chorus]
                 C
Like a blood red balloon
                 Em
Like a blood red balloon
                 C
Like a blood red balloon
                 Em
Like a blood red balloon

A

You can't fight it

Don't close your eyes

You can't hide from it
F#m
Open your eyes

You can't fight it
      B
Don't close your eyes

You can't fight it
A                    A6  A
Don't close your eyes

You can't fight it
A                    A6  A      
Don't close your eyes

You can't hide from it
F#m           F#sus4  F#m 
Open your eyes

You can't fight it

Don't close your eyes

[verse]
Em
I look into your staring eyes

And understand our future lies
         G
With the destined demise of man
                           B
A mushroom cloud following an
   C
Explosion filmed in surround sound

Sending deep tremors through the ground
    G                            B
Obscuring the innocent sky from view

[Chorus]
                 C
Like a blood red balloon
                 Em
Like a blood red balloon
                 C
Like a blood red balloon
                 Em
Like a blood red balloon
             D
Like a blood

G  
(Don't close your eyes)
