I finger pick this.

Lyrics as submitted to SongMeanings.com by user rxqueen and edited by user ReadThese

The thunder clouds broke up,
And the rain dried up,
The lightning let up,
The clacking shutters just shut up.

There’s no black or white,
No change in the light,
No night, no golden sun.

The sound of cars,
The smell of bars,
The awful feeling of electric heat.

Under fluorescent lights,
There’s sacrifice,
There’s hard feelings,
There’s pointless waste.

I want wind to blow

My clothes off me,
Sweep me off my feet,
Take me up and bring me back.
Oh, where I can see
Days pass by me,
I have no head to hold in grief.

There’s no hope for me,
I’ve been set free.
There’s no breeze,
There’s no ship on my sea.

The Microphones - The Glow Pt. 2

Chords by me
Lyrics as submitted to genius.com by user makesomenoise

When you play Cmaj7 in this song, I recommend you repeatedly
switch between Cmaj7 and Cmaj9 by taking off and putting on your pinky finger.

E|-1----3----4----0----2----3----3---|

Intro:

Fm - Cm - C#  x9


Em         Bm7            Cmaj7
I took my shirt off in the yard
       Em           Bm7                      Cmaj7
No one saw that the skin on my shoulders was golden
         Em
Now it's not
                Bm7
My shirt's back on
            Cmaj7
I forgot my songs

The glow is gone
   Em      Bm7   Cmaj7
My gliding body stopped

Em - Bm7 - Cmaj7  x2

 
Em                      Bm7                 Cmaj7
I could not get through September without a battle
        Em
I faced death
       Bm7             Cmaj7
I went in with my arms swinging
                 Em
But I heard my own breath
                 Bm7             Cmaj7
And I had to face that I'm still living
          Em
I'm still flesh
         Bm7       Cmaj7
I hold on to awful feelings
        Em
I'm not dead
           Bm7
There's no end
          Cmaj7
My face is red
    Em Bm7     Cmaj7
My blood flows harshly
   Em Bm7      Cmaj7
My heart beats loudly
   Em                Bm7
My chest still draws breath
  Cmaj7
I hold it
    Em
I'm buoyant
Bm7     Cmaj7
Ooh oh oh
           Em
There's no end

Bm
I drove up to the city at night
              G
And found the place where you grew up
                   Bm
And then where you stayed

And then we walked around
              G
And stayed up late

Under city lights
                Bm
And I spent the night
                                        G
Next to you in the house where you grew up
                                Bm
Next to you I miraculously woke up
     
In your parents' house
          G
I lied in bed with you

Bm                  G
I went back to feel alone there
Bm                     G
I went back to wipe it clean
Bm                                           G
I took the lights and radio towers out of my dreams

Bm                                                 G 
We went all the way up to the small town where I'm from

With foggy air

And the wind
                 Bm
And the mountain top

And we clung to rocks
              G 
And we looked off

You held my hand
                        Bm
You almost got to start feeling me
                          G
I finally felt like I was breathing free
          Bm                                            G
And under swaying trees we fell asleep and had the same dream

The stars were bright
                        Bm
We dream the same every night
                               G
On my island home I spent some time with you

       Bm              G
I went back to feel alone there
       Bm              G
I went back there by myself
         Bm                         G
And gave up on everything that we'd felt

            D
We found a precious place in the sand
                 G
Right out in the wind

And lied under a blanket
                      D
And heard the furious sound

The roar of waves

The pounding surf
                  G
Two bodies on the earth
                                        D           G
It was intense just getting to be there next to you
                       D
And you were trying to get me then
                G
And I was happy let you in

       Bm                G
I went back and wished I hadn't
       Bm              G
I went back and felt regret
          Bm                     G
I went to the beach and I stared west

Bm - G

      Bm
Every night when the sun went down
                     G
In the town where we live

The empty streets were lit up
             Bm
By reflected light
 
From a distant sun
                       G
Bouncing off a glowing ball of rock
                    Bm
We just lied on the roof and watched
    G
The moon

The blue light of the moon
    Bm
The moon

The blue light of the moon
          G                              Bm
We didn't talk and silently we both felt powerful
                 G
Like the moon my chest was full
                Bm                                                     G
Because we both knew we're just floating in the same space over molten rock
                                                 Bm
And we felt safe and discovered that our skin is soft
                                    G
There's nothing left except certain death
                                  Bm
And that was comforting under the moon

G
 
       Bm                G
I went out last night to forget that
       Bm                G
I went out and stared it down
        Bm                    G
But the moon just stared back at me
           Bm                             G
And in its light I saw my two feet on the ground

Intro:

F - C  x3

         fig. 1                   C
I got hit hard, I'm on the ground
           F               C
And if you swing again I'll duck
      F                   C
But I wish you the best of luck
      F         C
You deserve yourself
           F                 C
And I'll return from my trip to hell
     fig. 1            C
As a headless horseman

       F         C
Cause, oh what a loss
       F              C
I went back to get my stuff
           F              C
And it was tangled up and tough
  F                          C
I stood there and stared you down
             F         C
And I walked aimlessly around
       fig. 1              C
With a flaming pumpkin head

F       C
Oh what a loss
        F              C
My soft hands replaced by claws
              F            C           fig. 1          C
You turned me into a stray dog, from a mighty human man
F        C
Oh what a loss
F        C
Oh what a loss
  F               C
I miss my closest friend
          F                  C
And now I cling to rocks and wind
       fig.1
It's a precious thing we lost

   G                    C
My roots are strong and deep
    G               C
I'm swaying in your breeze

   G                    C
My limbs stretch out to meet you
       G            C    G
You've got me on my knees

        C
I stand tall
                   G
My feet are on the ground
    Gmaj7               C
But compared to you I'm small
               Cmaj7             G
The things you need you just surround

G - C x2

    G                 C
You rocked around the earth
    G              C
You circle it with air
       G                  C
You're trapped inside the core
     G            C   G
With hot hot lava hair

                 C
I wish you could sprout
                              G
But you can't stick your neck out
           Gmaj7          C
I want you climbing on my limbs
             Cmaj7           G
But I'm just stumped by your whims

F
F - G - Am - G  x2

F
There's no end, there's no glory
          G               Am
There's a slow resounding story


There's no place to feel certain
          G                  F
There's nobody waiting for me


There's no stand of trees, no morning
          G               Am
There's a curve without a warning

There is weird and lasting sadness
           G                        F
There's no large and lengthy warming


There's no heat, there's no expansion
           G                Am
There's no door into the mansion

Lengthy warming, sweet removal
      G                            F
Sweet expanse sweet and substantial


There's no flesh
                         G
There's no fingers in my hair
        Am
I see a tunnel
    
                           G
We built walls, tall and solid
                             F
Between the treasure and the shovel


I see an in I see a fountain
          G              Am
There's a trail over the mountain

There's no wayside, there's no stopping
        G                F
And the peak is wide and rocky


There's no ceiling in the mansion
           G               Am
There's no waste no hesitation

There's no crack of dawn, no morning
        G              F
Just an everlasting warming

This instrumental is all orchestral so I'm just going to put the basic chords they are playing.
Play in a 1/2 beat rhythm.

A#5 - F#5

The Microphones - Deep

This song is basically an instrumental loop of these distorted chords repeated while gradually
speeding up until it fades out.

G                                 C        
Through lengthy talks I'll not contain you
G                                   C    
Through climbing arms I'll reach my loft
G                                  C
Through rotting skin I'll leave my coffin
G                                  C
Through calloused work I will grow soft

G - Gmaj7 - C x3

G                   C  
My eyes narrow on a light
G                                 C
A blurry place where we hotly radiate
G                                          C
Things aren't concrete there and we fastly glide
G                     C
To get there I'll not contain you

G - Gmaj7 - C
                      G          C
To get there I'll not contain you

I saw your future in my sleep

Lyrics as

You'll be in the air
In some hours you'll be over the sea
Lost in the other passengers on the plane
But if you just moved your arms
Then you could tell
That you are in the air

You'd feel the yawning gulf grow wider
And you'd feel the dwindling fuel for your lungs
So your breaths would slow

You'd be in the air
You'd feel the hot blowing rock filled winds
The clouds of ash would fill your skies
As you smoothly glide

Over the cold river basin where we spend the night
Again your gaping gap is pink in foggy light
When I wake up your pet will pounce I'll meet the day
You'll be in the air, I'll be in your bed when I'm awake

And can you tell that I'm down here?
Can you feel my hot lung-y wind
Was it intense to smell my skin, and not lose yourself?

I'll look pinkly out your window in the fog
Loud and clear I'll make out your resounding roar
You'll be in the air
You'll bear fruit, your bare feet
Your bare arms in the heat
You'll be able to feel your might

The Microphones - I Want To Be Cold
Lyrics as contributed to genius.com by user elephonium

Intro:

G#5

G#5  F#5        E5   
It's raining on me
                       G#5
And I don't want it to stop
  F#5           E5
I don't want to breathe

Anymore

G#5 - F#5 - E5 - F#5

G#5
I want soggy ground
          F#5                 E5
I want to feel my feet in the sand
       G#5               F#5           E5
I want water to rise and cover all the land
          G#5                     F#5
I want to swim until my arms give out
                 E5
And I come to an end
          G#5
I hope it happens soon
        F#5                    E5
I can't deal with feeling this bad

G#5 - F#5 - E5

G#5    F#5   E5
I want to be cold
    G#5    F#5   E5
And I want it to snow so bad
                         G#5
I hope your flames don't grow
  F#5                  E5
I want to be buried in snow
                         G#5
I hope your flames don't grow
  F#5             E5
I just want to be cold
                        G#5
And I don't want you to know

The Microphones - I Am Bored
Lyrics as contributed to genius.com by elephonium

Intro:
E5

           C5      B5      A5          F5     G5 A5
You tore a hole so deep my leak poured out torrentially
    G5      F5
But now I'm bored

          C5      B5      A5  F5     G5    A5
My bloody flow is slowed so I can be bored near you
    G5     F5
Oh, what a loss

          C5       B5         A5       F5       G5     A5       
It didn't show its head until mine was torn and thrown at you
G5          F5
And back it grew

            C5   B5        A5      F5     G5    A5
With glassy eyes locked in contact on the couch with you
G5         F5
Oh, boring face

             C5      B5          A5   F5     G5   F5
We're losing touch I reached and my extended hand went through

E5 - F5

C5

B5     A5        F5      G5      F5
Now we both know what we have to do

Intro:

C - Fm - Am - Fig.1 - G

    C                             Fm
The heat from the closeness of me tilting towards the sun
            Am                        G
Was storing up to ignite at night and light
    C
The coldness of the cave
            Fm
The billowy flames lit up my face
             Am                    fig.1            G
And thinning smoke hung in the branches waiting for wind
             F                        Fm*
My front was warm, c-cold backs of my arms
               Am*                 G            
Never felt the dawn, the night was long

((from now on play normal chords)) 

C - Fm - Am - G

         C5                      F5
When the real dawn came I saw it crawl over the hill
           A5                                 G5
And I felt clean and shook my hair out in the light
         C5                         F5
I looked up and hurt my eyes on the painful powerful sky
         A5                         G5
I looked down and felt motion under me
              C5                            F5
When I looked out across the freeway at the people flying by
            A5                                G5
I turned my head, I closed my eyes, I felt my size
              F                    Fm
I recalled my fire, and my lack of dawn
             Am                    G
My one sided warmth, I just wanted more
        C5                         F5
But I'm small, I'm not a planet at all
    A5         G5           C5
I'm small, I'm small, we're all

G   355433
D   200232



I thought I felt your shape but I was wrong
Really all I felt was falsely strong
I held on tight and closed my eyes
It was dumb I had no sense of your size


Bm          A
It was dumb to hold so tight
G               D
But last night


On the birthday in the kitchen
My grip was loose my eyes were open
I felt your shape and heard you breathing
I felt the rise and fall of your chest

Bm
I felt your fall
A
Your winter snows
G
Your gusty blow
D
Your lava flow
Bm
I felt it all
A
Your starry night
G
Your lack of light
D
With limp arms I can feel most of you

I hung around your neck independently
And my loss was overwhelmed
By this new depth I don't think I ever felt

But I don't know
The nights are cold
And I remember warmth
I could have sworn I wasn't alone

The Microphones - Samurai Sword
Lyrics as contributed to genius.com by user Breaded

E5 - F#5 - G5 - F#5 x3

E5 - F#5 - G5

         E5                   F#5
You're a bear foraging for a kill
             G5
Your massive paws press down the snow
         F#5
I've got bare feet
         E5                     F#5
Touching bark right above you silently
        G5                               F#5
I lower down my icy stare, you smell the air
           E5                      F#5        G5
I've got a samurai sword meant for you, polar bear

                   F#5
I've got a grizzly look in my eye
           E5                     F#5       G5
You aim to drag me back down underground to gorge
                                F#5
You want my blood all over your face
        E5                                  F#5
But I'm plummeting through branches towards you now
        G5
Feeling still (samurai Phil)
