[Intro] 
G7 G7sus4 C9 F Fsus4 F

G7              G7sus4  C9  F    Fsus4   F
Take off, little winged creature
                 G7              G7sus4
It's nothing but teens in ravines
    C9                      F    Fsus4   F
And antics on concrete down here
            G7           G7sus4      C9                         F  Fsus4  F
And are you really as free as all the great songs would have me believe?
                    G7                 G7sus4      C9   F    Fsus4      F
Let me tell you why some day, Birdie, you're gonna envy me

A#7             A#dim            Cm Cm/A# F    Fsus4    F
Some dream of a world written in lines of code
                  G7              G7sus4 C9
Well, I hope they engineer out politics, romance, and edifice
          F                Fsus4    F
Two outta three ain't bad
A#7             A#dim             Cm     Cm/A# F   Fsus4   F
Some envision a state governed by laws of business
G7                     G7sus4     C9
Merger and acquisition instead of violence or nations
         F           Fsus4   F
Where do I sign up?

G7              G7sus4  C9  F      Fsus4   F
Take off, little winged creature
                 G7       G7sus4 C9                         F    Fsus4   F
It's nothing but falling debris, strollers, and babies down here
               G7         G7sus4 C9                        F              Fsus4    F
And you may be up in the sky but our paradigms are just as deep and just as wide
              G7          G7sus4 C9  
What with all our best attempts at transcendence
            F              Fsus4   F
Something's bound to take

      A#7             A#dim            Cm     Cm/A#      F    Fsus4   F
Soon, we'll live in a global culture devoid of gender or race
             G7         
There's just one tiny line:
  G7sus4      C9
You're either born behind
                  F            Fsus4   F
Or you're free to peek inside
A#7               A#dim      Cm    Cm/A# F    Fsus4   F 
Life as just narrative, metadata in aggregate
          G7            G7sus4 C9
Where the enigma of humanity's wrapped up finally
             F            Fsus4     F
That as they say is that

             Cm        Cm/A# F     Fsus4   F
Oh, that day can't come soon enough
      Cm    Cm/A# F   Fsus4   F
It'll be so glorious
          Cm      Cm/A#           F        Fsus4    F
When they finally find out what's bugging us
