Painted Eyelids  Beck

guitar tuned down 1/2 step
[A]I wake up and look upon your p[E]ainted eyelids
The w[F#]orld is your oyster and the [E7]trash bags are your kids
The c[A]eiling is invisible there's a b[E]ird sinkin thru the sky
[F#]And every hour that passes is t[E7]eachin me how to cry
Cuz it's l[D7]onely here in the u[A]gly part of town
The b[B7]uildings are all vacant and the t[E7]elephones are down
There's a police siren singing like a tiger with no skin
The sewer drain is glowing and I don't know what state I'm in
And the river is on fire there's chemicals and debris
And all the roads are blocked off they're just too hard to see
So cancel my appointments and set up a whole new show
Cuz I'm in need of a good hot meal and a life to call my own
(Harmonica solo over A-E-F#-E7)
So get me a plate of money get me a blanket and a chair
The limitations are limitless they're floating thru the air
Cuz it's real and it's true the things I see in you
And there's nothin I wouldn't talk about with the clearest dream
that ever drifted [A]by
