Listen to the song to find out how it goes. ***** Am D The antique people are down in the dungeons Am D Run by machines and afraid of the tax Am D Their heads in the grave and their hands on their eyes Am G Hauling their hearts around circular tracks F C Pretending forever their masquerade towers G Gsus4 Are not really riddled with widening cracks G And I wave goodbye to iron F Gm And smile hello to the air Gm F Eb O the new children dance I am young D Gm F All around the balloons I will live Eb D Gm Swaying by chance I am strong F Eb D To the breeze from the moon I can give Gm F Eb Painting the sky You the strange D Gm F With the colors of sun Seed of day Eb D Gm Freely they fly Feel the change F Eb D Gm / F / E D G As all become one Know the Way, know the Way G / / / (x2) G C The velocity addicts explode on the highway G C Ignoring the journey and moving so fast G C Their nerves fall apart and they gasp but can't breathe G C They run from the cops of the skeleton past F C Petrified by tradition in a nightmare they stagger G Bb Am F G Into nowhere at all and then look up aghast G And I wave goodbye to speed F Gm And smile hello to a rose O the new children play I am young Under juniper trees I will live Sky blue or grey I am strong They continue at ease I can give Moving so slow You the strange That serenely they can Seed of day Gracefully grow Feel the change And yes still understand Know the Way G Bb Am Gm F The king and the queen in their castle of billboards G Bb Am Gm F Sleepwalk down the hallways dragging behind Gm Bb Am Gm F All their possessions and transient treasures Gm Bb Am Gm F As they go to worship the electronic shrine C Eb On which is playing the late late commercial F C G In that hollowest house of the opulent blind G And I wave goodbye to Mammon F Gm And smile hello to a stream O the new children buy I am young All the world for a song I will live Without a dime I am strong To which they belong I can give Nobody owns You the strange Anything anywhere Seed of day Everyone's grown Feel the change Up so big they can share Know the Way C Bb C The vaudeville generals cavort on the stage Bb C And shatter their audience with submachine guns Bb C And Freedom and Violence the acrobat clowns Bb C Do a balancing act on the graves of our sons (single notes mostly matching melody - suggested tab -->) -0-2-3-2-0---------------- -----------1-3-1-0-------- -------------------2-0---- -----------------------0-- -------------------------- -------------------------- While the tapdancing Emperor sings "War is peace" (N.C.) And Love the Magician disappears in the fun G And I wave goodbye to murder F Gm And smile hello to the rain O the new children can't I am young Tell a foe from a friend I will live Quick to enchant I am strong And so glad to extend I can give Handfuls of dawn You the strange To kaleidoscope men Seed of day Come from beyond Feel the change The Great Wall of Skin Know the Way D C The bloodless husbands are jesters who listen D C Like sheep to the shrieks and commands of their wives D C And the men who aren't men leave the women alone D G F See them all faking love on a bed made of knives D C Afraid to discover or trust in their bodies D G F And in secret divorce they will never survive G And I wave goodbye to ashes F Gm And smile hello to a girl O the new children kiss I am young They are so proud to learn I will live Womanwood bliss I am strong And the manfire that burns I can give Knowing no fear You the strange They take off their clothes Seed of day Honest and clear Feel the change As a river that flows Know the Way Am D The antique people are fading out slowly Am D Like newspapers flaming in mind's suicide Am D Godless and sexless directionless loons Am G Their sham sandcastles dissolve in the tide F C They put on their deathmasks and compromise daily G Bb Am F G The new children will live for the elders have died G And I wave goodbye to America F Gm And smile hello to the world ** **** ********* submitted by Dann Butterfield comments or corrections welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org ********* **** **
