Next up is the always-neutral country of Switzerland, where our intrepid heroes climb a mountain and, in
a spiritual awakening on its summit, forsake their normal ambrosia of sliced, fried potatoes and give 
legumes a shot instead. They also encounter and photograph a bunch of baby sheep, one of which is used as the
cover art for the album. 




E - A - B

Looking out the foggy window of the train it seemed insane,
The rain was comin' down so fast it couldn't make it in the drains
            B                   A              B              A 
And all the roads had turned to rivers and the stairs to waterfalls.

        B            A                     B            A
All the buildings in Zurich had great graffiti on their walls
        E                            A                     E
We only saw it for a second when the lightning bolts would strike
E                                  A                           B          A
The city had no power; there was a monster in the sky blocking out the sunlight
       B                    A      B      E
It was hard to tell whether it was day or night

         B                     A                B                A
When our train pulled into the station, we were happy just to be alive
       B                       A
We had made it on time and the storm had surrendered
   B                      A
We set up our tent in the victorious sunlight
       E                       A
And we walked into town and we looked around
   B                             A
We stared through the windows at Swiss army knives

        E                       A
We were in a deep valley in the middle of two lakes
         B                              A
With the mighty mystic mountains rising up on each side
       A                       B                 E                        A
And we slept that night and we dreamed about the climb that we were gonna make
      A                    B                         E
Cause life's not about the stuff that you have; it's more about the chances you take
E                   B           E
It's more about the chances you take.

          E           B              A               E
We bought two cans of beans, one for you and one for me,
      B                          A            E
And a bag of peanuts too then we laced up our boots
                B             A             E
We hiked up the hills passing ponies on the way
                   B                    A              E
Stoppin', reachin' through the fence to feed them some hay

E                     B             A                  E
Now the trees grew so thick that we couldn't see their tops
E                      B                 A             E
As we twisted like the roots through the rocks and the moss
E                      B             A            E
Coming down around the corner came a herd of baby lambs
E                 B               A           E
I swear I took at least a hundred pictures of them

        B                                 A
When we made it out of the trees and back into the light
         B                          A
We could see we were gettin' pretty close to the sky
          B            A
Under our feet perfect blue, pink, and white
         B                  A
Were the smallest, sweetest edelweiss

    E                               B
And Gandalf would have been a great guide
       E             B        A
As the trail we were trusting hugged the mountainside
E                      B
Deep down below in the ice and the snow
    A                             E
The river cut a gorge through the rock like a knife

E                                   B                A             E
And we could see the spot where the giant pushed his feet into the stone
E                          B        A                  E
And kept the mountain from fallin', saving the village below
E              B          A
And the crows, the crows, came to say hello
     E                  B                             E
They laughed at you and me; they said we were way too slow
E          A                  A                E
The crows, the crows, without effort, sank and rose
E                       B
They laughed at you and me
B              A              E
They sang that we should have flown

When we got up to the top we had to stop cause there was nowhere left to go

And so we ate our beans and we shared our nuts with those big black braggin' crows

We smashed our cans, we put on our packs, and started back on our way home

I liked goin' up better than comin' down but everything comes back down, you know

          E        B        A
Yeah, the sun, the sun will melt away the snow,
        E           B           A
And the rivers, the rivers will flow, 
    E          B                  A          E
the crows, the crows, will sing together and alone
E          B            A               E         B          A
This whole world is our home. They said make this world your home.
