[VERSE 1; with above pattern (note: stage vers. begin open crds here)]
(C) G                         A         E     D A           D/A  A
    Deaf, dumb and blind boy, He's in a quiet vibration land.
C G                    A   E              D     A            D/A   A
  Strange as it seems, his musical dreams ain't quite so bad.

| G        | E      | A   D/A | A    D/A  |

| G        | E      | A       |      

[VERSE pattern; with open chords]  
 C | G   A | E   D | A     |    C | G   A | E   D | A   D/A | A7   C |

G            A5    E                D  A               D/A A    C
Ten years old with thoughts as bold as thoughts can be.
G           A5    E           D     A       D/A  A
Loving life and becoming wise in simplicity.

[CHORUS]
G7/F                                     Cmaj7/E
Sickness will surely take the mind where minds can't usually go

     Cm7/Eb                     D                    Dsus4/7  D Dsus4 D
Come on the amazing journey and learn all you should know.

[BRIDGE]
        G                Dsus4       D Dsus4 D 
A vague haze of delirium creeps upon me
       G                      Dsus4    D  Dsus4 D 
All at once a tall stranger I suddenly see
     G                            Dsus4       D  Dsus4  D 
He's dressed in a silver-sparkled glittering gown.
        G                         D          
And his golden beard flows nearly down to the (ground)

 Bb5 | F5   C5 | G5    D | A    D/A | A    
 ground..

C | G     A5 | E     D | A   D/A | A7  D/A | A  D/A | A7    C |

G             A E              D A              D/A A   C
Nothing to say, nothing to hear, nothing to see.
G            A E            D     A         D/A A
Each sensation makes a note in my symphony.

| G     | E5     | A   D/A | A    D/A |

| G     | E5     | A       |          |

[repeat CHORUS]
Sickness will surely take the mind where minds can't usually go
Come on the amazing journey and learn all you should know

[repeat BRIDGE]
    G                      Dsus4           D Dsus4 D
His eyes are the eyes that transmit all they know
G                        Dsus4      D  Dsus4 D
Sparkle warm crystalline glances to show
   G                  Dsus4   D Dsus4 D
He is your leader, he is your guide
        G                D   
On the amazing journey together you'll (ride).

 Bb5 | F5   C5 | G5    D | A    D/A | A    
 ride..

C | G     A5 | E     D | A   D/A | A7   A5 A5 | (E5)*
