Im Wide Awake Its Morning

Bright Eyes

 CFCFCFC
 CFC
We must talk in every telephone Get eaten off the web
 CFG
We must rip out all the epilogues in the books that we have read
 CF
And in the face of every criminal Strapped firmly to a chair
 CGC
We must stare, we must stare, we must stare
 CFC
We must take all of the medicines too expensive now to sell
 CFG
Set fire to the preacher who is promising us hell
 CF
And in the ear of every anarchist that sleeps but doesn't dream
 CGC
We must sing, we must sing, we must sing

It'll go like this:
 FG
While my mother waters plants
 CF
My father loads his guns
 FG
He says death will give us back to god
 AmFG
Just like this setting sun is returned to this lonesome ocean

 CFCF
And then they splashed into the deep blue se   
 CFGCFCCGC
It was a wonderful splash                  

 CFC
We must blend into the choir Sing ecstatic with the whole
 CFG
We must memorize nine numbers and deny we have a soul
 CF
And in this endless race for property and privilege to be one
 CGC
We must run, we must run, we must run
 CFC
We must hang up in the belfry where the bats and moonlight laugh
 CFG
We must stare into a crystal ball and only see the past
 CF
And in the caverns of tomorrow With just our flashlights and our love
 CGC
We must plunge, we must plunge, we must plunge

 C
 And then we'll get down there to the very bottom of everything
And we'll see it, we'll see it, we'll see it

 FGCF
Oh my mornings coming back The whole world's waking up
 FGAmF
In the city buses are swimming past I'm happy just because
 GCFC
I found out I'm really no one          

We Are Nowhere and It's Now

(play this if you dont have a capo: A C# F# Em A C# F# Em)

 GBmEmDGBmEmD
 If you hate the taste of wine, why do you drink it till your blind
 GBmCDEm
And if you swear that there's no truth and who cares, how come you say it
 D
like you're right
 GBmEmDGBmEmD
Why are you scared to dream of God, when it's salvation that you want 
 GBmCDEm
You see, stars that clear have been dead for years, but the idea just lives
 D
 on
 GBmEmDGBmEmD
 In our wheels that roll around, as we move over the ground   
 GBmCDEmD
and all day it seems we've been in between, a past and future town

 EmD
We are nowhere and it's now
 EmD
We are nowhere and it's now
 CD
In like a ten minute dream in the passenger seat
 GDEmm
While the world was flying by        
 EmmD
I haven't been gone very long but it seems like a lifetime

 GEmGBmGEmGBmD
 AmD
 I been sleeping so strange at night
 AmD
 Side effects they don't advertise
 AmD
 I been sleeping so strange
 AmD
 With a head full of pesticide

 GBmEmDGBmEmD
 GBmEmDGBmEmD
 I got no plans and too much time, I feel to restless to unwind 
 GBmCDEmD
I'm always lost in thought as i walk the block to my favorite neon-sign
 GBmEmDGBmEmD
 Where the waitress looks concerned, but she never says a word  
 GBmCDEmD
Just turns the jukebox on and we hum along and i smile back at her
 GBmEmDGBmEmD
 And my friend comes after work, when the features starts to blurr 
 GBmCD
She says: "These bars are filled with things that kill, but now you
 EmD
probably should have learned"

 EmD
Did you forget that yellow bird?
 EmD
How could you forget that yellow bird
 CD
She took a small silverese and pinned it on to me,
 GDEm
and said this one will bring you luck
 EmD
I don't know if it's true, but i keep it for good luck

Old Soul Song (For The New World)

 DBmGADDBmGAD
D Dsus(000230) Bm
Grey like new day leaks through the window
 GAD
and some old song comes on the alarm clock radio.
 DDsusBm
 We walk the forty blocks to the middle
 GAD
of the place we heard where everything would be
 GAD
and there were barracades to keep us off the street,
 BmGEmA
but the crowd kept pushing forward until they swallowed the police.
 EmG
Yeah, they went wild yeah, they went wild.
 EmG
Yeah, they went wild yeah, they went wild.

 DBmGADDBmGAD
 DDsusBm
We left before the dust had time to settle
 GAD
and all the broken glass swept off the avenue.
 DDsusBm
On the way home I held your camera like a bible,
 GAD
wishing so bad that it held some kind of truth.
 GAD
And I stood nervous next to you in the dark room,
 BmGEmA
you dropped the paper in the water and it all begins to bloom.

 EmG
Yeah, they went wild yeah, they went wild.
 EmG
Yeah, they went wild yeah, they went wild.

 DGBmEmADGBmEmA
 GAD
Just when I get so lonesome I can't speak,
 BmGEmA
I see some flowers on a hill side, like a wall of new TVs.

 EmG
Yeah, they went wild. yeah, they went wild.
 EmG
Yeah, they went wild. yeah, they went wild.
 DEm
Yeah, they went wild. yeah, they went wild.
 GEm
Yeah, they went wild. yeah, they went wild.

 GG2GG2CC2CC2
well i know that it is freezing but i think we have to walk        
 GG2GG2CC2CC2
I keep waving to the taxis they keep turning their lights off      
 AmDDsus2DDsus2
but julie knows a party at some actor's westside loft            
 AmCAmDGG2GG2
supplies are endless in the evening by the morning they'll be gone   

 GG2GG2CC2CC2
When everything gets lonely I can be my own best friend     
 GG2GG2CC2CC2
I'll grab a coffee and the paper; have my own conversations
 AmDDsus2DDsus2
With the sidewalk and the pigeons and my window reflection        
 AmCAmDGG2GG2
The mask I polish in the evening, by the morning looks like shit   

Am7(002213) G
and i know you have a heavy heart i can feel it when we kiss
Am7 G Dsus(000230)
and many men stronger than me have thrown their backs out tryin to lift it
 AmEmGDC
but me im not a gamble you can count on me to split
 AmCAmDGG2GG2
the love i show you in the evening by the morning won't exist         

 GG2GG2CC2C2
You're looking skinny like a model with your eyes all painted black
 GG2GG2CC2C2
You just keep going to the bathroom always say you'll be righback
 AmDDsus2DDsus2
Well it takes one to know one, kid, I think you've got it bad     
 AmCAmDGG2GG2
But what's so easy in the evening, by the morning is such a drag 

 GG2GG2CC2C2
I've got a flask inside my pocket we can share it on the trai    
 GG2GG2CC2C2
If you promise to stay conscious I will try and do the same        
 AmDDsus2DDsus2
We might die from medication, but we sure killed all the pain     
 AmCAmDGG2GG2
But what was normally in the evening, by the morning seems insane.       

 Am7G
And I'm not sure what the trouble was that started all of this
Am7 G Dsus(000232)
The reasons have run away but the feeling never did
 AmEmGDC
It's not something I would recommend, but it is one way to live
 AmCAmDGG2GG2
Cause what is simple in the moonlight, by the morning never is         
 AmCAmDEm
What's so simple in the moonlight, now its so complicated.
 AmCAmCG
What's so simple in the moonlight, so simple in the moonlight     

Trail Under Water

Capo 4

 A
 AE
You were born inside of a raindrop
 DA
I watched you falling to your death
 AE
And the sun, well it could not save you
 DA
It'd fallen down too, the streets are wet
 AE
Body of water, toxic and timeless
 DA
The Atlantic ocean, New York skyline
 AE
I always get lost when I leave the village
 DA
So I couldn't come meet you in Brooklyn last night
 AE
But I sing glory for my lowest
 DE
And I will say peace to the people at me
 AE
While the world waits for an explosion
 DA
That instant of life that wipes that slate clean

 F#E
So don't be fooled
 F#E
So don't be lied to
 C#F#BE
Love was always cruel
 F#E
Don't act strange
 F#E
Don't be a stranger
 C#F#BE
It happened to me, now it's happening to you
 D
But if you take that train underwater then we could talk it through

 AEDAAEDA
 AE
Well if I could tame all of my desires
 DA
Wait out the weather that howls in my brain
 AE
Because it seems that it's always changing
 DA
The wind's indecision, the sorrowful rain
 AE
I was a postcard, I was a record
 DA
I was a camera until I went blind
 AE
Now I'm riding all over this island
 DE
Looking for something to open my eyes
 AE
Well we still sing glory from a highrise
 DA
And I will say thanks if you're pouring my drinks
 AE
While the world waits for an explosion
 DA
That moment in time when we are set free

 F#E
So don't stay mad
 F#E
Just let some time pass
 C#F#BE
And in the morning you'll wake feeling new
 F#E
And if I don't come back
 F#E
I mean, if I get sidetracked
 C#F#BE
It's only 'cause I wanted to
 D
Keeping up with the moon on an all night avenue

First Day of my Life

Intro:
C E Am F G C x2(Pick)

 CEAm
 This is the first day of my life
 FGC
 Swear I was born right in the doorway
 CEAm
 I went out in the rain, suddenly everything changed
D7(000212) G
They're spreading blankets on the beach
 CEAm
 Yours is the first face that I saw
 FGC
 Think I was blind before I met you
 CEAm
 Don't know where I am, don't know where I've been
 D7G
But I know where I want to go 

 CGAm
So I thought I'd let you know
 FG
That these things take forever
 CC/BAm
I especially am slow
D2(003230) C
But I realized how I need you and I wondered if I could come home

C G Am D2(003230) F2(006560) F?(006568)

 CEAm
 I remember the time you drove all night
 FGC
 Just to meet me in the morning
 CEAm
 I thought it was strange, you said everything changed
 D7G
You felt as if you'd just woke up
 CEAm
And you said, "This is the first day of my life.
 FGC
 I'm glad I didn't die before I met you.
 CEAm
 Now I don't care, I could go anywhere with you,
 D7G
And I'd probably be happy."

 CGAm
So if you want to be with me
 FG
With these things there's no telling
 CC/BAm
We'll just have to wait and see
 D2C
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck than waiting to win the lottery

 D2C
Besides, maybe this time its different, I mean I really think you like me

E Am D2 F2 F? C E Am D2 F2 F? C

Another Travelin Song

Intro
 B
 BE
i'm changin all my strings i'm gonna write another travelin' song            
 BF#
about all the million highways and the cities at the break of dawn           
 BE
i guess the best that i can do now is pretend that i done nothin wrong              
 F#EB
and to dream about a train thats gonna take back where i belong           
 BE
The ocean speaks and spits and I can feel it from the interstate.             
 BF#
and I'm screaming my brother on a cell phone, he is far away.                
 BE
I'm saying nothing in the past or the future ever will feel like today.             
 F#EB
I tell him park it in the alley and just hoping that our shit is safe.    

 EB
So I go back and forth forever       
 EB
All my thoughts they come in pairs       
 EF#
Oh, I will, I won't, I doubt, I don't
 C#mEF#B
I'm not surprised, and I never feel quite prepared                            

Now I'm hunched over a typewriter, I guess you'd call it painting in a cave.
And there's a word I can't remember and a feeling I cannot forsake.
And now my ashtray's overflowing, I'm still staring at a clean, white page.
 F#EB
The morning's at my window and she's sending me to bed again.              
 BE
Well I dreamed of dark on the horizon, I dreamed of desert where the dead lay down.
 BF#
I dreamed a prostituted child touching an old man in a fast food crowd. 
 BE
Oh yeah I dreamt the ship was sinking there were people screaming all around   
 F#EB
and I awoke to my alarm clock, it was a pop song, it was playing loud.      

 EB
So I will find my fears and face them,
 EB
Or I will cower like a dog.  
 EF#
I'll kick and scream or kneel in glee, 
 C#EF#B
I'll fight like hell to hide that I'm giving up!

Landlock Blues

Capo 3

 CGC
If you walk away, I'll walk away
 CGC
First tell me which road you will take    
 AmGCAm
I don't want to risk our paths crossing some day     
 CGC
So you walk that way, I'll walk this way    
 CGC
And the future hangs over our heads
 CGC
And it moves with each current event      
 AmGCAm
Until it falls all around like a cold steady rain    
 CGC
Just stay in when it's looking this way     
 CGC
And the moon's laying low in the sky        
 CGC
Forcing everything metal to shine           
 AmGCAm
And the sidewalk holds diamonds like the jewelry store case
 CGC
They argue walk this way, now walk this way 
 CGC
And Laura's asleep in my bed    
 CGC
As I'm leaving she wakes up and says      
 AmGCAm
"I dreamed you were carried away on the crest of a wave
 CGC
Baby don't go away, come here"            
 CGC
And there's kids playing guns in the street
 CGC
And ones pointing his tree branch at me   
 AmGCAm
So I put my hands up I say "enough is enough,        
 CGC
If you walk away, I'll walk away"         

And he shot me dead

 AmGC
found a liquid cure    
 AmGC
From my landlocked blues        
 FGCAm
It'll pass away like a slow parade         
 CGC
It's leaving but I don't know how soon            

 CGCCGCAmGCAmCGC
 CGC
And the world's got me dizzy again          
 CGC
You think after 22 years I'd be used to the spin    
 AmGCAm
And it only feels worse when I stay in one place       
 CGC
So I'm always pacing around or walking away          
I keep drinking the ink from my pen
And I'm balancing history books up on my head
But it all boils down to one quotable phrase
If you love something, give it away
A good woman will pick you apart
A box full of suggestions for your possible heart
But you may be offended and you may be afraid
But don't walk away, don't walk away
We made love on the living room floor
With the noise in background of a televised war
And in the deafening pleasure I thought I heard someone say
"If we walk away, they'll walk away"
But greed is a bottomless pit
And our freedom's a joke
We're just taking a piss
And the whole world must watch the sad comic display
If you're still free start running away
Cause we're coming for you!

 CGCCGCAmGCAmCGC
I've grown tired of holding this post
I feel more like a stranger each time I come home
So I'm making a deal with the devils of faith
Saying "let me walk away, please"
You'll be free child once you have died
From the shackles of language and immeasurable time
And then we can trade places, play musical grace
Till then walk away, walk away

 AmGC
So I'm up at dawn
 AmGC
Putting on my shoes    
 FGCAm
I just want to make a clean escape         
 CGC
I'm leaving but I don't know where to               
 CGC
I know I'm leaving but I don't know where to                

Poison Oak

A Dsus3(000230) or (000220) A Dsus3

 ADsus3

 ADsus3

 F#/AE
well i don't think that i ever loved you than when
 A
 you turned away
 Dsus3
when you slammed the door
Fm7(200230)
when you stole the car
Em7(020230)
drove towards mexico
 A
and you wrote bad checks
 Dsus3
just to fill your arm
 Fm7
i was young enough
 Em7
i still believed in war

 AFm7AFm7
E Fm7(200230)

 Fm7Em7
theres a muddy field where the garden was
 A

 Em7

The sun came up with no conclusion
It's flowers sleeping in their beds
The cities cometary's humming
I'm wide-awake, it's morning

I have my drugs, I have my woman
They keep away my loneliness
My parents have they have their religion
But sleep in separate houses

 EmAm
I read the body count out of the paper       
 FGC
And now it's written all over my face     
 EmAm
No one ever plans to sleep out in the gutter 
 FGC
Sometimes that's just the most comfortable place                         

So I'm drinking, breathing, writing, singing Everyday up on the clock
My mind races with all my longings But cant keep up with what I got

I hope I don't sound too ungrateful What history gave modern man
The telephone to talk to strangers Machine guns and the camera lens

 EmAm
So when you're asked to fight a war that's over nothing                   
 FGC
It's best to join the side that's gonna win        
 EmAm
And no one's sure how all of this got started            
 FGC
But we're gonna make them goddam certain how its gonna end                            
 C
Oh ya we will, oh ya we will!

 C
 Well I could have been a famous singer
If I had someone else's voice
But failure's always sounded better C C C C
Lets fuck it up boys, make some noise!

The sun came up with no conclusion
It's flowers sleeping in their beds
The cities cometary's humming
I'm wide-awake, it's morning
