[Intro] (x4)
D  C-C/B-C  C/B  C

[Verse 1]
Em7
Where do we go from here?
G
The words are coming out all weird
               C
Where are you now, when I need you
Em7
Alone on an aeroplane
G                              C
Fall asleep against the window pane
My blood will thicken

[Break]
A----C

[Verse 2]
Em7                            G
I need to wash myself again to hide all the dirt and pain
              C
'Cause I'd be scared that there's nothing underneath
Em7
But who are my real friends?
G
Have they all got the bends?
             C
Am I really sinking this low?

[Chorus]
D                 C     C/B   C
My baby's got the bends, oh no
D                      C    C/B     C
We don't have any real friends, no, no, no

[Bridge]
(This part doesn't actually have any guitar, but I like to palm mute around the 7th and 
12th fret harmonics)
(7th harmonic palm mute)
Just lying in the bar with my drip feed on
Talking to my girlfriend, waiting for something to
(12th harmonic palm mute)
happen
(7th)
I wish it was the sixties, I wish we could be happy
                                            Em
I wish, I wish, I wish that something would happen

[Verse 3]
Em7
Where do we go from here?
G                                   C
The planet is a gunboat in a sea of fear
And where are you?
Em7                           G
They brought in the CIA, the tanks and the whole marines
             C
To blow me away, to blow me sky high

[Chorus]
D                 C  C/B  C
My baby's got the bends
D                    C   C/B  C
We don't have any real friends

[Bridge]
(7th harmonic palm mute)
Just lying in the bar with my drip feed on
Talking to my girlfriend, waiting for something to
(12th harmonic palm mute)
happen
(7th)
I wish it was the sixties, I wish we could be happy
I wish, I wish, I wish that something would

[Solo]
(On this part I like to mimic the electric by sliding the G chord up to the 15th fret, 
but it's not totally necessary)
G  C (x2)

[Refrain]
        G
I wanna live, breathe
                             C
I wanna be part of the human race
        G
I wanna live, breathe
                             C
I wanna be part of the human race, race, race, race

[Outro]
Em7
Where do we go from here?
G
The words are coming out all weird
              C
Where are you now when I need you?
