                H[A]ello I sa[D]w you I k[A]now you I kn[D]ew you
        I th[A]ink I can re[D]member your na[A]me...na[D]me
       [A]    [D]    [A]   [D]                  H[A]ello I'm so[D]rry I lo[A]st mys[D]elf
        I th[A]ink I tho[D]ught you were so[A]meone els[D]e
                S[E]hould we t[G]alk about the wea[D]ther?[BaddE]
        S[E]hould we t[G]alk about the gov[D]ernment?[B]
{break: B / / / B / / / E / / / E7 / / /
         the melody[B] on the [B]break is[E]n't too [D/Dsus4]hard to pick out. The notes
are real close to the chords - often in them. I think its weird
that Pete didn't play them on the acoustic version.}
Hello my friend are you visible today?
And no one ever knew that it could be so strange...strange
Hello I'm sorry I lost myself
I think I thought you were someone else
Get Up
======
               [A] Sleep delays my li[D]fe
        Where does the time go[A]...go
        I don't kn[D]ow
        Sleep sleep sleepy hea[A]d
        Wake it u[D]p...up
        You've got all your li[A]fe

                D[E]reams t[B]hey co[C]mplic[G]ate my li[A]fe
        D[E]reams t[B]hey co[C]mplim[G]ent my li[Bb]fe
I've seen you laying pined
I've seen you laying pined
Life is rough...rough
I've seen you laying down...down
With the loving kind
I know life is hard...hard
Well now
Where to turn?
This time there's no escape
To dreamtime
You Are The Everything
======================
       [G]Sometimes I feel like I can't even [D]sing
       I'm very scared for this w[G]orld
       I'm very scared for [D]me
       Eviscerate your mem[G]ory
       Here's a [G]scene
       You're [D]in the back seat laying down
       The [G]windows wrap around you
       The [D]sound of the travel and the engine
       [C]All you hear is [G]time stand still in[C] travel
       You feel such peace and ab[G]solue
       The stillness still that do[C]esn't end
       But slowly drifts i[G]nto sleep
       The st[D]ars are the greatest thing you've ever seen
       And t[D]hey're there for you
       For y[D]ou alone you are the everythi[G]ng
       I thi[G]nk about this worl[D]d a lot and I cry
       And I'[G]ve seen the films and the [D]eyes
       But I'm in this ki[G]tchen
       Everything is be[D]autiful
       And she is so be[G]autiful
       She is so young and [D]old
       I look at her and [C]I see the beauty
       Of the l[G]ight of music
       The vo[C]ice is talking somewhere in the ho[G]use
       Late spring and you're dri[C]fting off to sleep
               With your te[D]eth in your mouth
       [D]You are here with me
       [D]You are here with me
       [D]You have been here and you are eve[Am]rything
Stand
=====
                St[E]and in the p[A]lace where you li[B]ve
        N[A]ow fa[A/G#]ce No[E]rth
        T[E]hink about di[A]rection
        Wonder wh[F#]y you have[B]n't[A] befo[E]re
        Now st[E]and in the pl[A]ace where you we[B]re
        N[A]ow [A/G#]face W[E]est
        T[E]hink about the pla[A]ce where you live
        W[F#]onder why you ha[B]ven[A]'t b[E]efore
                I[E]f you are conf[A]used che[C#]ck with t[C]he su[B]n
        C[E]arry a co[A]mpass to h[G]elp you a[A]lo[B]ng
        Your f[E]eet are go[A]ing to b[C#]e on t[C]he g[B]round
        Your h[E]ead is the[A]re to mo[G]ve you[G] a[A]ro[B]und
Your feet are going to be on the ground
Your head is there to move you around
If wishes were trees the trees would be falling
Listen to reason
The reason is calling
{at the end of this song, it goes up a key, so the chords are:
F# B C# .....
then they go up again to:
G# C# D# .....
however, the song ends on:
       so ST[E]AND!
World Leader Pretend
====================
{Between the Em and Bm chords play this ----
         (D) -0-2-4-2-0-                  }

                I[D] sit at my ta[G]ble a[C]nd wage war on mys[D]elf
        I[D]t se[G]ems like it's al[C]l...it's all for no[D]thing
        I[D] know the ba[G]rricades, [C]and
        I know the mor[D]tar in the wal[D]l breaks
        I rec[G]ognize the weapons,[C] I used them well[D]
                 [Em]    [Bm]           T[Em]his is my mistake. L[Bm]et me make it good
        I[Em] raised the wall, and I[Bm] will be the one to knock it d[G]own[A]
I've a rich understanding of my finest defenses
I proclaim that claims are left unstated,
I demand a rematch
I decree a stalemate
I divine my deeper motives
I recognize the weapons
I've practiced them well. I fitted them myself
It's amazing what devices you can sympathize...empathize
This is my mistake. Let me make it good
I raised the walls, and I will be the one to knock it down
                R[Am]each out for m[C]e and hold [Am]me tight.  Hold that me[C]mory
        Let [Am]my machine ta[C]lk to me.  L[Am]et my machine t[A]alk to me[G]
This is my world
And I am the world leader pretend
This is my life
And this is my time
I have been given the freedom
To do as I see fit
It's high time I've razed the walls
That I've constructed
It's amazing what devices you can sympathize...emapathize
This is my mistake. Let me make it good
I raised the walls, and I will be the one to knock it down
You fill in the mortar. You fill in the harmony
You fill in the mortar. I raised the walls
And I'm the only one
I will be the one to knock it down
Orange Crush
============
Orange Crush goes :
| Em | Em | G | D | in the verses
| E | B | F# | B | in the chorus
Follow me don't follow me
I've got my spine I've got my orange crush
Collar me don't collar me
I've got my spine I've got my orange crush
We are agents of the free
I've had my fun and now its time to
Spread your conscience overseas
Coming in fast over me
Paid in full
Orange Crush
============
                F[Em]ollow me don't follow me
        I've g[G]ot my spine I've g[D]ot my orange crush
        C[Em]ollar me don't collar me
        I've g[G]ot my spine I've g[D]ot my orange crush
        W[Em]e are agents o[G]f the free
        I've ha[D]d my fun and now its time to
        S[Em]pread your conscience overseas
        C[G]oming in fast o[D]ver me

Hairshirt
=========
{This song repeats these 8 measures throughout the verses:
G / / / G / / / A7 / / / A7 / / / C / / / C / / / G / / / G / / /}
I am not the type of dog
That could keep you waiting
For no good reason
Run a carbon-black test on my jaw
And you will find it's all been said before
                I[G] can [A7]swing my megaph[C]one and long arm the re[Am]st
        It's ea[Am]sier and better
        To just beat it from the che[C]st[C]
Of desire G
I could walk into this room
And the waves of conversation are enough
To knock you down in the undertow
So alone so alone in my life
Feed me banks of light
And hang your hairshirt on the lowest rung
It's a beautiful life
And I can hang my hairshirt
Away up high in the attic of the wrong dog's life chest
Or bury it at sea
All my life I've searched for this
Here I am here I am in your life
It's a beautiful life
My life
It's a beautiful life
Your life
(Untitled) - Pieces printed in the 1988 fan club holiday card
=============================================================
               [C]This world is big and so-awake
       [G]I stayed up late to [C]hear your voice
       [C]This light is here to keep you warm
       This song is here to keep you s[G]trong
I made a list of things to say
But all I really want to say
All I really want to say is
Hold her and keep him strong
While I'm away from here
Hold her and keep her strong
While I'm away from here
I've seen the world and so-awake
And stay up late to hear me sing
Just hold her
I've seen the world and so-awake
And stay up late to hear me sing
Just hold him
Hold her and keep her strong
While I'm away from here
Hold him and keep him strong
While I'm away from here
