[Verse]
 E
Some of us think seldom in the night
    E                  E
Of god damn horses and god damn wires.
    A                                E
It’s in one ear, and never sees the other side.

 When you have to play the A section:

        E
And steadiness belies your tender years
        E                     E
With real world problems and real world fears
 A                     E
   Be young, imbibe tonight.
      Abm              A                    E           E
Like you’re a work of fiction. OOOOOooooooOOOooo

    E
So simmer down we’ll brave this city land
       E                E
Like proto-people, Cro-Magnon hands
     A                                  E         E
And stones for knives, and lions in our     pants.

E
I could tell you all my thoughts on god.
       E                        E
Don’t mind his portraits, but I   hate his psalms.
 A               E      Abm            A
Were I a pious knob. I know id try and listen.

[Chorus]
A             Abm              Gbm
 OOOOOOOOOOOoooooo Rest Assured
A                              Abm            Gbm
 OOOOOOOOOOOoooooo There are harder ways to go
A                               Abm                   Gbm
 OOOOOOOOOOOoooooo When you’re tired just let me know
A                               E (intro)
 OOOOOOOOOOOoooooo We’re not in Kansas anymore

[Verse]
E
No it’s not a stretch for me to say
         E                          E
We’re strange young hermits, in a strange new place
        A
And through the years
            E                   E
I hope it stays the same

E
The bed is warm but don’t believe the hype
            E                   E
And throw boring parties. Live boring lives
    A                       E
In saying this, I feared enough to try
      Abm               A
And swallowed line and sinker

[Chorus]
A             Abm              Gbm
 OOOOOOOOOOOoooooo Rest Assured
A                              Abm            Gbm
 OOOOOOOOOOOoooooo There are harder ways to go
A                               Abm                   Gbm
 OOOOOOOOOOOoooooo When you’re tired just let me know
A                               E (intro)
 OOOOOOOOOOOoooooo We’re not in Kansas anymore

Bridge: E E E A A E E

[Verse]
 E
Some of us sleep seldom in the night
       E                         E
We’re god damn mortals, with no god damn time
        A
And in saying this
       E
Don’t pay it any mind

[Chorus]
A             Abm              Gbm
 OOOOOOOOOOOoooooo Rest Assured
A                              Abm            Gbm
 OOOOOOOOOOOoooooo There are harder ways to go
A                               Abm                   Gbm
 OOOOOOOOOOOoooooo When you’re tired just let me know
A                               E (intro)
 OOOOOOOOOOOoooooo We’re not in Kansas anymore
