GThe picture is far too big to look at kid. Your eyes won't open wide enough and you are constantly surrounded by that swirling stream of what is and what was. Well, we've all Cmade our predictions but the truth still isn't Gout. So if yoDu want to see the future, go stare into a cGloud. GAnd keep trying to find your way out of that maze of memories. It all sort of looks familiar, but then you get up close and it's different. clearly. Each tiCme you turn a corner, you are right back to where you Gwere and your only hoDpe is that forgetting might make a door aGppear. Is it youGr fear of being buried that makes you so afraid to speak? An avalanche of opinions like the one that feel that I am now underneath It was myC voice that moved the first rock and I would do it allG again. So, I mean, it's cDool if you keep quiet, but I like sGinging. So I'll be holDding my note and stomping and strumming and feeling so very lucGky. There is nDothing I know except that this lifetime is just one moment and wishing will just leave me eGmpty. GSo you can try and live in darkness but you will never shake the light. It will greet you every morning and make you more aware with its absence at night, when you are wrCapped up in your blanket baby, that comfortable cGocoon. But I have seen the daDy of your awakening boy and it's coming sGoon. So go ahead anGd loose yourself in liquor and you can praise the clouded mind but it isn't what you are thinking it's the course of history, your position in line. You are just a piCece of the puzzle so I think you had better find your Gplace. And don't go bDlaming your knowledge on some fruit you aGte. Because there has been a great deal of discussion, yes, about the properties of man. Animal or angel? You were carved from bone, but your heart it's just sand. And the Cwind is going to scatter it and cover everything with Glove. So if it makes you hDappy, keep kneeling Mama, but I am standing Gup. Because thiGs veil, it has been lifted yes. My eyes are wet with clarity. I have been a witness of such wonders. Oh, I have searched for them all across this country but I tChink I'll be returning now to the town where I was bGorn. And I unDderstand you must keep moving friend, but I am heading hGome. I'm gonna foDllow the road and let the scenery sweeping by easily enter my bGody. I'll send you all this mDessage in code, under ground, over mountains, through forests, deserts and Gcities. G G All aCcross the electric wiCre, it's a baited line. TChe hook is in deep boys, there is no more Ctime. So you can struggle in the water and be too stubborn to die, C C D D D-cut off or you could just let go and be lifted to the sky. Method Acting: There's nEmo beginning to the story, a bookshB7elf sinks into the sand And aC language learned and forgot, in turn, isG stFm7udied once again It's aEm shocking bit of footage viewed from aB7 shitty TV screen You canC squint out into snowy static toG mFm7ake out the meaning And keep onEm stretching the antenna hoping thaB7t it will come clear We need someC reception, a higher message, justG tFm7ell us what to fear 'CauseAm I don'tD know whatG tDomorrow Cbrings It'sAm alive Dwith such possibGilDities C AmAll I Dknow is I feel Gbetter Dwhen IC sing Burdens areD lifted from me That's my voice rEmisingB7 C G

So, Michael,Em please keep the tape rolling, boys keepB7 strumming those guitars We need aC record of our failures, yes, we mustG dFm7ocument our love I'veEm sat too long in my silence, I've grownB7 too old in my pain ToC shed this skin, be born again, it stGarFm7ts with an ending SoAm thank you,D friends, for theG tiDme Cwe shared My loveAn stays with Dyou like sunGligDht aCnd air And though IAn truly Dwish I could keep Ghanging Daround Chere My joy isD covering me Soon, I will disaEmppeaB7r C G

GThe future has got me worried, such awful thoughts. Am My head is a carousèlD of pictures. The sGpinning never sGtoFps.

CI have a frieFndF, he is made mFostly of paint. C F F F CHe wakes upF, Fdrives to workF, and then straight back hComFe Fagain. F He ConFceF cut one of myF nightmares out ofC pFapFer. F CI FthFought it was bFeautiful, I put it on a record CcoFveFr. F And I trGied to tell him he had a sense of colCorF aFnd compositionF so magnificent.

G I CamF aF waste of breaFth, CofF sFpace, of time.F" etc.... From A Balance Beam: There isD a man holding a megaphone, so he must havAe been the voice of God. The bystandD7ers claimed they saw angels flying uGp and down the block. Well, they must have Gmbeen attached to wires. I saw one laying in the Bmlawn with a brAoken arm, so I calledA 911. So that is one lDess founded opinion. One more Acause for a dispute. So the sD7treet filled, like a basin, up with cGameras and their crews and they Gmwashed away the rumors leaving jBmust the concrete truth. It was a sApectacle. No, I mean a Amiracle. So then I Dfell like that girl from a bAalance beam. A gymD7nasium of eyes were all hoGlding on to me. I lifted one fooGmt to cross the other and I fBmelt myself slipping. It was a sAmall mistake. Sometimes that is Aall it takes. Bm Now I'm staring at my wrGist, hoping that the timing is rAight. When the planes wDill align. There will be no planets to Galign. Just the carcass of theGm sun and those little painted mGmarbles spinning endless through an endless black sky.

It was in a fDoreign hotel's bathtub I baptAized myself in change. And D7one by one I drowned all of the pGeople I had been. I emGmerged to find the parallels were Bmfewer. I was cleansed. I looked Ain the mirror and someone Anew was there. Still, I was as hDelpless as a chess piece when I was liftedA up by someone's hand and deD7livered from the corner my enemiGes had got me in. But in Gmall of my salvation I still Bmfelt imprisoned inside that hoAlding cell that is Amyself. So I wDait for the day when I'll hAear the key as it D7turns in the lock and the Gguard will say to me, "Oh my patient prisoner you have waited for this day Bm and finally you are fAree! You are free! You areA freezing." Bm Now I'm staring at the suGn, waiting for it to exAplode. Because a day is gonna cDome, don't know when but it will Gcome and then we will finally know theGm way out of here. GmAnd I will throw away this wrinkled map and my chart of stars and compass, cracked. And I'll climb out that tree all wet with sap to avoid the hungry beasts below. I'll cut out my love's tongue and sing of a graveyard gray and a garden green and then we won't have to worry no more. No we won't ever worry again abouthow this song or story ends about how this song and story will end.
