Cape Canaveral

Capo II
G
Oh, oh, oh brother totem pole
G
I saw your legends lined up
Am
And I never felt more natural
Em
Am
Em
Apart, I just came apart
Please, please, please sister Socrates You always answer with a question Show some kindness to a petty thief Forgive, you did forgive
C
D
Watch the migrants smoke in the old orange grove
G
C
And the red rocket blaze over Cape Canaveral
C
D
You've been a father to me In 1960's speak
G
C
In the comatose joy like we're on TV
Am
G
While the mountainside was shining wild colors of my destiny
Am
G
I watched your face age backwards, changing shape in my memory
Am
G
You taught me victory's sweet even deep in the cheap seats
Hey, hey, hey mother interstate Can you deliver me from evil? Make me honest make me wedding cake Atone, I will atone Wait, wait, wait mighty outer-space All that flying saucer terror Made me lazy drinking lemonade A waste, it just went to waste
C
D
Like the Freon cold out the hotel door
G
C
Or the white rocket fade over Cape Canaveral
C
D
You've been a daughter to me your buried shoe-box grief
G
C
I felt your poltergeist love like savannah heat
Am
G
While the waterfall was pouring crazy symbols of my destiny
Am
G
I watched your face die backwards, little baby, in my memory
Am
G
You told me victory's sweet even deep in the cheap seats
C
Em
And you don't judge me
C
D
That's not your style
C
Em
But I won't see you
Bm
For a little while
C
Em
And there's no worries, oh lord
C
D
Whose got time
C
Em
D
All these changes are going to fill your mind
C
D
Like the citrus glow off the old orange grove
G
C
Or the red rocket blaze over Cape Canaveral
C
D
It's been a nightmare to me, some 1980's greed
G
C
Gives me parachute dreams like old war movies
Am
G
While the universe was drawing perfect circles form infinity
Am
G
I watched the stars get smaller, tiny diamonds in my memory
Am
G
I know that victory is sweet even deep in the cheap seats



Sausalito

Capo V
A
Hair blowing in the hot wind Time hanging from a clothespin
E
There's no sorrow that the sun's not gonna heal
A
I smell the leather of your new car Drive through the desert after nightfall
G
C
A
Sleep on the shoulder, keep the stars all to ourselves
The kind of love that makes my back hurt Wearing nothing but a t-shirt She's turning over on a mattress made of air I close my eyes I see a staircase Leading upwards into blank space All of creation makes a sound too soft to hear
E
G
So I remain between her legs
A
E
Sheltered from all my fears
G
A
While bikers glide by highway shrines
C
G
A
Where pilgrims disappear
I know that trouble's been your good friend Kept you company on the weekends Kept you company even once your mind was made Said it's over and it's finished Now a headache is all you're left with We're no different I got debts I'd like to pay We should move to Sausalito Living's easy on a house boat Let the ocean rock us back and forth to sleep In the morning with the sunrise Look in the water see the blue sky As if heaven has been laid there at our feet So we remain between these waves Sheltered for all our years While bikers glide by highway shrines Where pilgrims disappear
C
G
Where time takes icebergs
C
G
Where fields burn westward
C
G
A
Where pilgrims disappear

E
And out it came like summer rain

C
Washed the cars and everything
E

Felt clean for just a little while
E
F

A telethon, we drunk dialed
F
G
The starving children, they ain't got no mother
F
C
There's pink flamingos living in the mall
E
F
I'd give a fortune to your infomercial
Dm
G
If just somebody would just take my call
Dm
G
Take my call
Dm
G
Take my call
C
Hello?
F
Patterns in my mind now moving slow
C
Sorrow all across the surface rolls
G
Smoothing out the edges of the stone
Dm
The lights are out where'd everybody go?
F
E
Hello?
Am
E
Erase yourself and you'll be free
F
C
Mendola destroyed by the sea
E
F
All we are is colored sand
Am
E
So pay to ride the ferris wheel
F
C
E
F
Smile all that you can feel is gratitude for what has been
E
F
G
Cuz it did not happen
F
G
There's money lenders inside the temple
F
C
The circus tiger's gonna break your heart
E
F
Something so wild turned into paper
Dm
G
If you loved me, well that's your fault
F
G
There's money lenders inside the temple
F
G
This crystal city's gonna fall apart
E
F
When all their power turns into vapor
Dm
G
If I loved you well that's my fault
Dm
G
Well that's my fault
Dm
G
Well that's my fault

Like a dandelion head

Explode and then are scattered by the breeze

Newspaper, newspaper, can't take no more You're here every morning, waitin' at my door I'm just tryin' to kiss you, and you stab my eyes Make me blue forever like an Island sky And I'm not pretending that it's all okay Just let me have my coffee before you take away the day Lazarus, Lazarus, why all the tears? Did your faithful chauffer just disappear? What a lonesome feeling to be just waitin' round Like some washed-up actress in a Tinseltown But for the record, I'd come pick you up We'll head for the ocean, just say when you've had enough All the light and sound This little world's too fragile now And there's only one way out But if you let me slide I'll do my best to make things right And I’m nowhere bound Keep going up and down Up and down Milk thistle, milk thistle, let me down slow Just help me go slow, I've been hurrying on I was poised for greatness, I was down and out I keep death at my heels like a basset hound If I go to heaven I'll be bored as hell Like a crying baby at the bottom of a well
