Tesla's Hotel Room
From the album Last Days of Wonder

[INTRO]

C G C Bm

[CHORUS]

        Am           Em           F            C
In the last days of wonder when spirits still flew,
          Am          Em       F             C
where we sat holding hands in half-darkened rooms,

[VERSE 1]

 C      G            F         C
Nicola Tesla in the hotel New Yorker,
 Am           Em     F            C
nursing sick pigeons by the open window,
  C           G              F          C
dreamed of a death ray to disintegrate matter,
  Am            Em        F        C
detected Morse code from faraway planets
    F                           C
He couldn't stand the touch of hair or of skin
       Dm                        Am
but stroked feathers gently on trembling wings
          F                      C
and drew plans for a camera to photograph thoughts,
 Dm                 F             C C/B
Vacuum tube lights, wireless phones

[CHORUS]

        Am           Em           F            C
In the last days of wonder when spirits still flew,
       Am        Em            F             C
'round bubbling test tubes in half-darkened rooms,

[VERSE 2]

 C          G            F         C
Edison and Westinghouse in silk brocade
     Am           Em            F         C
ate oysters Rockerfeller with French champagne.
 C              G           F      C
But Tesla grew thin eating only saltines,
       Am          Em      F        C
going days in his lab without any sleep
  F                   C
Dreaming of god as an X-ray beam,
       Dm                  Am
he was hit by a cab while crossing the street
 F                           C
Lying on his bedspread he struggled to breathe
     Dm                       F                    C C/B
the light bulbs exploded the air filled with wings

[CHORUS]

        Am           Em           F            C
In the last days of wonder when spirits still flew,
 Am     Em         F             C
Tesla vacated his half-darkened room
