Lyrics and chords:

Intro: F#, B, E, F#, F#, B, E, F#

 F#B
The Horizon has been defeated
 EF#
By the pirates of the new age
 F#BEF#
 Alien casinos, well maybe its just time to say
 F#BEF#
 Things can go bad, make you wanna run away
 F#BEC#
But as we grow older, the trouble just seems to stay

 F#BEF#
 Future complications in the strings between the cans
 F#BEF#
But no prints can come from fingers, if machines become our hands
 F#BEF#
And then our feet become the wheels, and then the wheels become the cars
 F#BEC#
And then the rigs begin to drill until the drilling goes too....far

 F#BEF#
 Things can go bad, make you wanna run away
 F#BEC#BF#
But as we grow older, the horizon begins to fade, fade, fade
 C#BF#C#BF#
 Fade away  <--This part is a bit confusing. Plays like this: Fay-hade away.

 F#B
But thingamajigs are puzzles
 EF#
 Anger, don't you step too close
 F#BEF#
Cause people are lonely and only animals with fancy shoes

 F#BEF#
 Hallelujahs zig zag nothing, misery is hard to lose
 F#BEC#
Cause people are lonely and only animals with too many tools
(D O N T P L A Y H E R E)

That can build all the junk that we sell
(O R H E R E)
Aw, some time, man, make you wanna yell

 F#BEF#
 Things can go bad, make you wanna run away
 F#BEC#BF#
But as we grow older, the horizon begins to fade..away

 C#BF#
 Fade away
 C#BF#
 Fade fade fade
 C#BF#
 Fade fade fade

That's it. Enjoy! Tabbed by Jeff H.
