Alien Days  MGMT

As performed 4/3/12 at Quilmes Rock in Argentina...
==PART A==
[F]So[C]me[F]ti[F7]mes the windmills combine with the suns in a way
[Db]Tha[Gdim]t twi[Asus4]tches [Asus4]on a picketed place where the spirits lay, hey
[Dm]One[Dm/C#] thing[F/C] lea[Fmaj7/C]ds to another, nights for sleep blue curtains cover
[Eb]Seq[Ebm]uins[Bb] in[Bb] the eyes, that's a fine time to dine
[Bdim]Divin[Bdim]e hair circling feeding the cards to the midwives
[F]Lo[C]ve[F] t[C]hose alien days, the nonstop alien days
F C F F (drums and bass come in)
Oh, the alien days
==PART A'==
[F]Mu[C]st[F] h[F7]ave scared the ship in joining the team for a ride.
[Db]A c[Gdim]ouple[Asus4] of ho[Asus4]urs to learn the controls and commandeer both my eyes, hey
[Dm]Be [Dm/C#]quick [F]de[Fmaj7/E]ar, times are uncertain, one month crawling, next year blurring
[Eb]Dec[Ebm]ades[Bb] in[Bb] the drain, monograms on the brain
[Bdim]Decid[Bdim]e what's working and what's moved on to the
[F/C]last[C] p[F/C]hase[C]. The floodgate alien days, I love those alien days
[F/C]Oh, [C]th[F]e [F]alien days
==PART B==
[Gb]Whe[Ab]n t[Db]he [Db]piers are down the ears are traveling in style.
[Gb]You[Abadd9] don't [Bb]nee[Bb]d wings to hover forty ton stones for a mile
[Ebm]And [Ebm]in t[Eb6]he s[Eb6]ummer, virgin fishes, mindless humming, thunders can't decide
[Gb]If [Ab]the[Fm/D] day'[Fm/D]s supposed to smile

[F/C]Toda[C]y [F]I [F7]finally found ways it could be any worse.
[Db]It'[Gdim]s a b[Gdim]lessi[Gdim]ng and it's also a curse
[Gdim] [Gdim] [Gdim] [Gdim]  
==PART B'==
[Gb]Tho[Ab]se [Db]day[Db]s taught me everything I know
[Gb]How[Ab] to[Bb] ca[Bb]tch your feeling and when to let it go
[Ebm]How [Ebm]all [Eb6]the [Eb6]skinny soulless creatures campfire dreamers humming in the
[Gb]hiv[Ab]e, [Fm/D]if it[Fm/D]'s right beneath the nose
[Gb]And[Ab] wh[Db]en [Db]the light is new the skies show strangling cartoons
[Gb]You[Ab] do[Bb]n't[Bb] need smoke to cover most of the world in a gloom but
[Ebm]Here[Ebm] com[Eb6]es L[Eb6]ucy and her servant, watch white feathers, ripping out the
[Gb]lin[Ab]es,[Fm/D] if i[Fm/D]t looks like we could lose
[Gb]If [Ab]it [Fm/D]looks[Fm/D] like we could lose
[Gb]If [Ab]it [Fm/D]looks[Fm/D] like we could lose
