C# Cm Bbm G#

         C#               Cm        
Now it's eight, I've been trying 
            Bbm          G#
to get that taste off my tongue
      C#          Cm
I was dreaming of just you, 
        Bbm           G#
now our cereal, it is warm
           C#         Cm
Attractive day in the rubble 
       Bbm        G#
of the night from before
            C#        Cm
Now I can't walk in a vacuum, 
       Bbm             G#
I feel ugly, I feel my pores
         C#            Cm
It's the trees of this day 
          Bbm                 G#
that I do battle with for the light
       C#            Cm
Then I start to feel tragic, 
       Bbm           G#
people greet me, I'm polite
            C#
"What's the day?"
            Cm
"What's you doin'?"
            Bbm
"How's your mood?"
            G#
"How's that song?"
       C#           Cm
Man it passes right by me, 
     Bbm                 G#
it's behind me, now it's gone
            C#
And I can't lift you up, my mind is tired
     Cm
It's family beaches that I desire
  Bbm
A sacred night, we'll watch the fireworks
    G#
The frightened babies poo
                C#
They've got two flashing eyes and they're colored why
          Cm           Bbm            G#
They make me feel that I'm only all I see sometimes

C#  Cm  Bbm  G#

G#
I've been eatin' with a good friend who said
"A genie made me out of the earth's skin"
       Cm
But in spite of her she is my birth kin
    Eb
She spits me out in her surly blood rivers
G#
All the people I'm lurkin'
Are dominions of the hot Turk dish
       Cm
If the elephants be reaching for our purses
     Eb
Then meet me after the world with the shivers
