Capo 5

C (x4)

Verse 1:
C                      Em
I----I pushed off the pier
            Am
Infinity run cold
                D
And filled up my ears
                      G
There's the weapon you hold;
                          F
Theres the thing that you hold it to
                 C
And the thing you hold dear.

Verse 2:
C                  Em
Oh the speed of a year
               Am
It runs the wood dry
           D
And water unclear
                         G
There's the thing you hold high;
                           F
There's the thing that you hold it to
                  C
And the thing you hold dear.

Verse 3:
C             Em       Am              D
I will be an enemy to men seen in the light!
                  G
Do you think it's all right?
                  F
Yes I think it's all right!
It's all right!

Verse 4:
                Bb
If you make the waves
                  F
The sun makes the rays
                 Bb
The speed of the Light
                  F
Can be trusted to prey
                Bb
To prey on the fools
                   F
That pushed off your pier
                 Bb           F
The whirling of pools runs clear
                C
Da-da-da-da-da-dum
         Am
Da-da-da-dum
          F
Da-da-da-dum


Verse 5:
   C
So I'll be out till the shivering dies
          Em
I said I'll be out till the shivering dies
         Am
It's the reigning of the predatory nature of the sky
          D
And the raining sound it makes when it's burning out your eyes
         G               F
It's all right. IT IS ALL RIGHT!
                      C
It's the speed of the light
                    Em
It's the speed of a year
                    Am
It's the weapon you hold,
                       D
And the thing you hold dear.
                  G
OH my dear, oh my dear
                 F
It's infinity's time to shine all year

Verse 6:
                Bb
If you make the waves
                  F
The sun makes the rays
                 Bb
The speed of the Light
                  F
Can be trusted to prey
                Bb
To prey on the fools
                    F
That pushed off your pier
                 Bb           F
The whirling of pools runs clear
         Bb
Da-da-da-dum
         F
Da-da-da-dum
         Bb
Da-da-da-dum
        F
Da-da-dum
               Bb                        F
The rocking of boats and the making of mirrors
                 Bb              F
The whirling of pools running clear.

Da-da-da-dum

I heard them say, "put the weapon away".

It's the thing you know and they're taking it away

I know

But I'll find a way

I'll find a way to let you tear the thing GO!

Bum...bum... ba-da-dum...

If you make the waves
The sun makes the rays
The speed of the light
Can be trusted to prey
To prey on the fools
That pushed off your pier
The whirling of pools runs clear
Da-da-da-dum
The rocking of boats and the making of mirrors
The whirling of pools running clear.
