          F#m                             G          D
Well you sure didn't look like you were having any fun
            F#m                              G          D
with that heavy-metal gaze they'll have to measure in tons
              G              D
and when you look up at the sky
G                D       G                D         A    A7
all you see are zeros / all you see are zeros and ones
D                             G               A           D
you took my hand and lead me down to watch a kewpie doll parade
D                             G                 A          D
we let the kittens lick our hair and drank our chalky lemonade
D			     G            A              D
it's not that I just didn't care I must admit I was afraid
D                                 G              A7              D
and I'm awfully glad my finger's resting gently on the masterfade


      F#m                    G         D
the masterfade / I coulda played along
      F#m                    G         D                 G           D
the masterfade / I coulda played Mah Jongg / but it just takes too long
     G             D                        G         D
and I just can't remember / which way the east wind blows
          A                     Em                  A             Em
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?
          Em                       A Em F#m A7
when the sky is full of zeros and ones

D                          G            A            D
I saw you standing all alone in the electrostatic rain
D                              G       A             D
I thought at last I'd found a situation you can't explain
D                       G              A          D
with GPS you know it's all just a matter of degrees
D                              G               A           D
your happiness won't find you underneath that canopy of trees
         F#m                     G         D
if the green grass is 6 the soybeans are 7
         F#m                       G            D
the junebugs are 8 the weeds and thistles are 11
           G                    D        G     D
and if the 1s just hold thier place the 0s a smiley face
       G                 D              A      A7
when they come floating down from the heavens
D                             G                A       D
you took my hand and lead me down to watch a papillon parade
D                             G                 A           D
we let the kittens lick our hair and drank our chalky lemonade
D                                G              A               D
you squeezed my hand and told me softly that I shouldn't be afraid
D                                  G    D  A                       D
'cause all the while your finger's resting   gently on the masterfade
        F#m               G         D           F#m
the masterfade I coulda played along / the masterfade
           G           D          G               D
I coulda played Mah Jongg but it just takes too long
     G                  D                    G         D
and who the hell can remember which way the east wind blows
            A           D             A7         A
when your lying on the ground staring up at an inverted compass
                     D
I mean Christ who Knows?
