VERSE 1:
Look [C]up, what do you see?
[G]All of you and all of me
[Em]Fluorescent and starry
[Bm]Some of them, they surprise
[C]The bus ride, I went to[G] write this, 4:00 a.m.
This [Em]letter
Fields of poppies, little [C]pearls
[G]All the boys and all the girls [Em]sweet-toothed
Each and every [Bm]one a little scary
[C]    [G]I said you[Em]r name
I wore it like a badge of[C] teenage film stars
Hash [G]bars, cherry mash and [Em]tinfoil tiaras
[Bm]Dreaming of Maria Callas
[C]   Whoever [G]she is[Em]
This fame thing, I don't [C]get it
I wrap my hand in [G]plastic to try to look through it
[Em]Maybelline eyes and [Bm]girl-as-boy moves
[C]I can take you far
[G]               This [Em]star thing, I don't get it

CHORUS:
(I'll take you over, there)
(I'll take you over, there)
Aluminum, tastes like fear
Adrenaline, it pulls us near
(I'll take you over)
(It tastes like fear, there)
(I'll take you over)
Verse 2:
[C]Will you live to [G]83?
[Em]Will you ever [Bm]welcome me?
Will you [C]show me something that no[G]body else has [Em]seen?
Smoke it, drink
[C]Here comes the [G]flood
[Em]Anything to [Bm]thin the blood
These corr[C]osives do their magic [G]slowly and [Em]sweet
Phone, eat it, [C]drink
[G]Just another chink
[Em]Cuts and dents, they [Bm]catch the light
[C]Aluminum, the [G]weakest link[Em]
I don't want to disappoint [C]you
I'm not [G]here to anoint you
I would [Em]lick your feet
But is that [Bm]sickest move?
I wear my own [C]crown and sadness and [G]sorrow
And who'd have thought [Em]tomorrow could be so strange?
CHORUS:
My loss, and here we go again
(I'll take you over, there)
(I'll take you over, there)
Aluminum, tastes like fear
Adrenaline, it pulls us near
(I'll take you over)
(It tastes like fear, there)
(I'll take you over)
BRIDGR:
VERSE 3:
Look [C]up, [G]what do you see?
[Em]All of you and all o[Bm]f me
Fluorescent and [C]starry
[G]Some of them, they surp[Em]rise
[C]I can't look it [G]in the eyes
Seconal, [Em]spanish fly, absinthe, [Bm]kerosene
Cherry-flavored [C]neck and collar
I can smell the [G]sorrow on your breath
The [Em]sweat, the victory and sorrow
The smell of fear
CHORUS:
I got it
(I'll take you over, there)
(I'll take you over, there)
Aluminum, tastes like fear
Adrenaline, it pulls us near
(I'll take you over)
(It tastes like fear, there)
(I'll take you over)
Pulls us near
Tastes like fear..
Nearer, nearer
over, over, over, over
Yeah, look over
I'll take you there, oh, yeah
I'll take you there
Oh, over
I'll take you there
Over, let me
I'll take you there..
There, there, baby, yeah
