 F#mGD
Well you sure didn't look like you were having any fun
 F#mGD
with that heavy-metal gaze they'll have to measure in tons
 GD
and when you look up at the sky
 GDGDAA7
 all you see are zeros / all you see are zeros and ones    
 DGAD
 you took my hand and lead me down to watch a kewpie doll parade
 DGAD
 we let the kittens lick our hair and drank our chalky lemonade
 DGAD
 it's not that I just didn't care I must admit I was afraid
 DGA7D
 and I'm awfully glad my finger's resting gently on the masterfade 
 F#mGD
                                    the masterfade / I coulda played along  
 F#mGDGD
the masterfade / I coulda played Mah Jongg / but it just takes too long
 GDGD
and I just can't remember / which way the east wind blows
 AEmAEm
does it matter? / If we're all matter/ what's it matter does it matter
 A
if we're all matter when we're done?
 EmAEmFmA7
when the sky is full of zeros and ones

 DGAD
 I saw you standing all alone in the electrostatic rain
 DGAD
 I thought at last I'd found a situation you can't explain
 DGAD
 with GPS you know it's all just a matter of degrees
 DGAD
your happiness won't find you underneath that canopy of trees
 F#mGD
if the green grass is 6 the soybeans are 7  
 F#mGD
the junebugs are 8 the weeds and thistles are 11 
 GDGD
and if the 1s just hold thier place the 0s a smiley face
 GDAA7
when they come floating down from the heavens   
 DGAD
 you took my hand and lead me down to watch a papillon parade
 DGAD
 we let the kittens lick our hair and drank our chalky lemonade
 DGAD
 you squeezed my hand and told me softly that I shouldn't be afraid
 DGDAD
 'cause all the while your finger's resting   gently on the masterfade
 F#mGDF#m
the masterfade I coulda played along / the masterfade
 GDGD
I coulda played Mah Jongg but it just takes too long
 GDGD
and who the hell can remember which way the east wind blows
 A
when your lying on the ground staring up at an inverted compass
 D
I mean Christ who Knows?
