  D             C
traveller's diagram 
            B             A
for where i am for what i am
 G                      F
you can try a visional code
     E                A
overloads, it all explodes

     G           Em
and hey, let's throw the great party 
   D            Am
today for the rest of our lives
     G             Em
the band is just about to get started
     D 
so throw the switch
      Am
it's rock 'n' roll time

 D                    C
force i lead lets us flow
             B           A
and then the onion lady blows
 G                     F                E
kisses to the crying cooks with baited hooks
          A
and lady looks

     G           Em
and hey, let's throw the great party 
   D            Am
today for the rest of our lives
     G             Em
the band is just about to get started
     D 
so throw the switch
      Am
it's rock 'n' roll time

A

 A                           Bb
you must be willing just to ride along with me
 A                         Bb
you must be happy just to do the job for free
 A                           Bb
yours for the taking if you follow simple rules
      A                         Bb
such acts of subservience were never taught in schools

 C                     
spit me out from your cosmos
 A 
draft me into your troops
 C
set me up for the knockdown
 A
you can watch, you can watch
 C
and i'll be back when it's over

 G G G      C C C          G G G
i'm much greater than you think
       C C C           G G G
i'm a swimmer in the drink
         C C C               G G G
i'm much greedier than you think
        C C C
i'm a slammer in the drink

 G        C
and oh, mesh gear fox
 G                                       C
put out another bag of tricks from your scientific box
 Em             C                         D
time's wasting and you're not gonna live forever

 G   C
and if you do
 G             C
i'll come back and marry you
 Em              C
no use changin' now
                        D
you couldn't anyhow and ever

 Em           C          G
it's not the way that i feel, that i feel
          D
it's the way you act
          C                        G
it's the way you look when you're near me

 Em          C          G
it's not so hard to conceal, to conceal
           D
it's the things you say
           C                       G
it's the things you do go right through me


weedking

 C#m       
long live rockathon
 A                             C#m
offspring and tag alongs were finding
 A                           C#m
the history book has lost its binding

 C#m
pages everywhere
 A                          C#m
2 titans without care will read them
 A                             C#m
we conjure ghosts and then we feed them
 A                             C#m
and if it all goes well we'll laugh a lot
 A                        C#m
and all take photographs

    C#m
of what we made, lemonade
 A
freedomcake, quick to bake
 C#m
trim the tree, collectively
 A
breath the air, from the fair

     C#
and watch colored lights shine down
 B        F#
dancing round the lady's face
       C#
as we learned the sound
 B        F#
we can keep this violent pace
 C# 
though we know that haste makes waste
 B        F#
and i'm giving you a ring

          C#           B                F#
for the dreams of the weed king we all sing
          C#           B                F#
for the dreams of the weed king we all sing
          C#           B                F#
for the dreams of the weed king we all sing...


particular damaged

(have no idea about chords and stuff)

?????????????????????????

drafted from the change
we are the old soul prominents
i've been this to the sensational flag
what's on the gag
inside the gag

shot from the traffic
in catshit attic
and for the soup
on electriton trapper
got a good catalyst
oh god, whisker nose
oh god, whisker nose

come down once you move, move
move, move, move

future soup on
electriton chopper
got a good copper
oh god, whisker nose
oh god, whisker nose
oh god, whisker nose
whisker nose
whisker no-no

??????????????????????????

oh yeah, i'm going to go real far
 G                               F          C A
as you were sitting down at the final stages
 G                              F        C A
staring at the screen as the battle rages
 G                           F         C A
you were finding god in the dictionary
 G                          F      C A
taking photographs in the cemetary

beyond the power of your clout

 G                      F         C A 
the worst offense is intelligence
 G                      F        C A 
the best defense is belligerance
 G                       F       C A 
how we stalemate our predicament
 G                      F       C A
governed by tissue and filament

lethargy

(the bass riff:)
E-0-0-5-0-0-0-7-0-

are you happy, happy today?
is your face, facemask on?
for the air is thick
and the clouds are moving so slowly

 E

thereís a book of instructions 
to the rusty time machine
that goes too late
but really nowhere
i wish i could give a shit 
just a little bit
whatís the difference?
      E
hey, lethargy!
 E
lethargy!
 E
lethargy!
 E
lethargy!...

back to saturn x

the lifeblood - the lighthouse flashing
16 chicks remain on watch

sopor joe, you oughta know
how to move fast
how to move slow

here come the fantasy creeps
they're all around you
they're here to give you the creeps
they've come to hound you

back to saturn x!

we are having the time of our lives
we are having the time of your lives

from the left (oh la la la...)
to the right

anything for free
anything for free

off and onward
in the chance i took
i'm a broken horse
i'm the one who's no good in your eyes

anything for free
anything for free


ergo space pig

(the whole song is in A, i think, with noise and weird bass-lines)

ocean pigs are still getting cats
we have submerged
and when you've been watching
over and over
speed up, slow down

?!?!?!?!?

come in, come in, the devil star pupil
he is the fuzz
how do you get that
radio wave wipeout?
should you get on?

?!?!?!?!?

        Em    D/F#
or outgrow it
                 G      D/F#
swung hills get open now
           Em    D/F#
though we know it
               D/F#         F
cause with my second guessing
             D
the subject for the testing
look over our blunders
our two-fisted wonders

     G            C
the foxy wildest monster's titus
      G               C
more peaceful than a human hammer
      G                  C
the great king tam transmissionaries
  D
evolving about you
dissolving without you
        Bm
as you know
it's just too slow 
        G
on the tundra

          G     D/F#
and then one day
       Em   D/F#
maybe today
           G         D/F#
we'll justify the joke
         Em    D/F#
make it our day
              D/F#        F
and blow the total savings
         D
to satisfy our cravings
look over our blunders
our two-fisted wonders

     G            C
the foxy wildest monster's titus
      G               C
more peaceful than a human hammer
      G                  C
the great king tam transmissionaries
  D
evolving about you
dissolving without you...

        Bm
as you know
it's just too slow...
