Intro:

e|-----------------| 
B|-----------------| 
G|-----------------| 
D|---000-000-000---| 2X

D|---0-0-0---0-0-000---| 2X

E|---------------------| 

The intro is best played with 
reverb. It sounds a lot like a 
sitar in the recording, which 
adds to this song's unique flavor. 

Verses:

G|-----------------| 
D|---000-000-000---| 
A|-----------------| 
E|-----------------| 
(Been a nice trip...)

The tab above is repeated somewhat 
monotonously throughout the first
parts of all of the verses.

Complete lyrics:

Verse 1: 
Been a nice trip 
Is this our stop? 
I'd leave the stage 
But the curtain won't drop 
The chemicals took my nerve 
I've given up 
what the saints preserve 
The push pull 
The sturm and the drang
I can't play a lick 
But I'm strumming along 
Sing it with me 
You look uptight 
Now is that a yawn 
Or are you ready to bite?

Verse 2: 
Been a nice trip 
As hinterlands go 
I took the hint 
And I swallowed it whole 
The chemicals color the facts 
On your mark, get set, relax 
The negatives double 
Double that again 
I did the math, I need a bath 
Sing it with me 
The widows might 
Now is that a yawn 
Or are you ready to bite? 

Chorus:
Don't you come near me now 
Don't you come through the wall 
I can't let go of the scene 
I can't stop hollerin' unclean
Don't you come near me now         
I've never not needed you more
Cursed with a sense of place 
I wanna see the look 
on the old man's face

Bridge: 
Bells are ringing 
In the town of 
the terminal heartache 
Bells are ringing 
Is it Easter 
Or the start of an earthquake? 
Bells are ringing 
In the town of 
the terminal heartache 
Bells are ringing 
Is it Easter 
Or the start of an earthquake? 

Verse 3: 
Been a long trip 
The hinterlands know 
You took the hit 
Then I quit 
Now I'm sick as a dog 
But I'll still fetch 
You won't make it stop 
But you pity the wretch 
And how do you love? 
We both know 
What your kids are made of 
60 parts water, 40 parts guile 
I've been found 
I wanna drown 

Chorus:
Cursed with a sense of place 
I left this town in disgrace 
Don't you come near me now 
I've never not needed you more
But I can't let go of the scene 
I can't stop hollering unclean 

Bridge: 
Bells are ringing 
In the town of 
the terminal heartache 
Bells are ringing 
Is it Easter 
Or the start of an earthquake?
