If The Brakeman Turns My Way  Bright Eyes

Capo: 4th fret

When pa[G]nic grips your body and your h[C]eart is a humming[G]bird
R[G]aven thoughts blacken your mind until you're bre[C]athing in re[D]verse
A[Em]ll your friends and sed[D]atives mean we[G]ll but m[D]ake it wo[C]rse
E[Em]very reas[C]surance just ma[Em]gnifies the do[C]ubt
Be[Em]tter find your[D]self a pl[C]ace to le[D]vel out[G]
Em, D

Got a cr[G]icket for a conscience always lo[C]oks the other w[G]ay
A co[G]caine soul starts seeming like an e[C]mpty cab[D]aret
Hey, wh[Em]ere have all the da[D]ncers gone? Now the m[G]usic doe[D]sn't pl[C]ay
Tried to li[Em]sten to the ri[C]ver but you cou[Em]ldn't shut your mo[C]uth
Better t[Em]ake a li[D]ttle ti[C]me to le[D]vel out[G]
[C]I never thought of run[G]ning
[C]My feet just led the w[D]ay

[G]Mixed up Signals
[C]Bullet Train
[G]Cars are switched out in the [D]crazy rain
[G]I could meet you [C]any place
If the B[D]rakem[C]an tu[D]rns my w[G]ay
Em, D

All this au[G]tomatic writing I have tr[C]ied to under[G]stand
From a psy[G]chedelic angel who was tug[C]ging on my h[D]and
It's an in[Em]finite coin[D]cidence but it do[G]esn't f[D]orm a p[C]lan
So I'm he[Em]aded for New En[C]gland or the P[Em]aris of the S[C]outh
Gonna f[Em]ind my[D]self som[C]ewhere to le[D]vel out[G]

Em, D

Are your br[G]othels full, Oh Babylon, with me[C]rry Middle[G]men?
       [G]                             [C] [D]
Never peer out of their periscopes from those deep opium dens
All this de[Em]ath must need a count[D]erweight always som[G]eone b[D]orn ag[C]ain
First a m[Em]other bathes her ch[C]ild then the o[Em]ther way ar[C]ound
The Scales al[Em]ways fi[D]nd a w[C]ay to le[D]vel out[G]

[C]I tried to pass for no[G]thing
[C]But my dreams gave me a[D]way

[G]Mixed up Signals
[C]Bullet Train
[G]People snuffed out in the b[D]rutal rain
[G]I could live to [C]any age
If the B[D]rakem[C]an t[D]urns my w[G]ay
It is an [Am]old world it's hard to re[D7]member
Like a d[G]ime store mys[C]tery
I'm a re[Am]peat first time off[D7]ender
Who has re[C]written hi[D]story[G]
[G]Mixed up tea leaves
[C]Phantom Pain
[G]Fuzzy logic in the c[D]razy rain
[G]Getting better e[D]very day
If the B[D]rakem[C]an tu[D]rns my w[G]ay
[G]Mixed up Signals
[C]Bullet Train
[G]Cars are switched out in the b[D]linding rain
[G]He'll be smiling as he s[C]eals my fate
When the B[D]rakem[C]an tu[D]rns my w[G]ay
