The system only dreams in total darkness

By Jonathan Veillette

Capo 1st fret

[Intro]

Em - G - F#m - G
Em

[Verse 1]
        Em                    A
Maybe I listen more than you think
            Bm             A
and I can tell that somebody sold you
        Em                     A
We said we’ve never let anyone in
             Bm           A
We said we’d only die of lonely secrets

[Chorus]
G               A                D
The system only dreams in total darkness
            G
Why are you hiding from me?
           A                 D
We’re in a different kind of thing now
                  G
All night you’re talking to God

Em

[Verse 2]
Em                              A
I thought that this would all work out after a while
            Bm             A
Now you’re saying that I’m asking for too much attention
Em                              A
Also no other faith is light enough for this place
            Bm             A
We said we’d only die of lonely secrets

[Chorus]
G               A                D
The system only dreams in total darkness
            G
Why are you hiding from me?
           A                 D
We’re in a different kind of thing now
                  G
All night you’re talking to God

Em

[Bridge]
G             A
I cannot explain it
D          G
Any other, any other way
G             A
I cannot explain it
D          G
Any other, any other way

Em

[Solo]

Em - A - Bm - A (x2)
G - A - D - G (x2)

G - A - D - G

[Chorus]
G               A                D
The system only dreams in total darkness
            G
Why are you hiding from me?
           A                 D
We’re in a different kind of thing now
                  G
All night you’re talking to God

[Outro]
G             A
I cannot explain it
D          G
Any other, any other way
G             A
I cannot explain it
D          G
Any other, any other way
G             A
I cannot explain it
D          G
Any other, any other way
G             A
I cannot explain it
D          G
Any other, any other way

Em
