E           C#m                     F#m
Born to multiply or born to gaze into night skies,
F#m G#m  A            G#m  F#m
 all you want's one more Saturday.
E                      C#m
But look here, until then
                       F#m
They're gonna buy your life's time
F#m - G#m             A                 G#m       F#m
 So keep your wick in the air and your feet in the fetters


B                                 E
Til the day, we come in doing cartwheels
                       B                                E
We all crawl out by ourselves, and your shape on the dance floor
                             B
Will have me thinking such filth I'll gouge my eyes.
           C#m         A
You'll be damned to be one of us girl
 C#m            A
Faced with the dodo's conundrum
E     F#m                      A
      I felt like I could just fly
     G#m                          B  A G#m F#m
But nothing happened every time I tried.


E                C#m                                 F#m
Duotone on the wall, the selfless fool who hoped he'd saved us all
F#m  G#m    A            G#m    F#m
   never dreamt of such sterile hands
E                            C#m                      F#m
You keep them folded in your lap, or raise them up to beg for scraps
F#m G#m         A                        G#m           F#m    B
You know he's holding you down with the tips of his fingers, just the same


                             E                             B
Will you be pulled from the ocean? But just a minute too late?
                  E                                B
Or changed by a potion, and find a handsome young mate for you to love
             C#m                         A
you'll be damned to pining through the window panes, you know
C#m                                 A     E - F#m                        A
you'll trade your life for any ordinary joe's,    well do it now or grow old


                     G#m                         B A G#m F#m
Cos your nightmares only need a year or two to unfold

Solo:
    E  C#m  F#m  G#m  A  G#m  F#m
    E  C#m  F#m  G#m  A  G#m  F#m

B                             E
Been alone since you were 21, you haven't laughed since January
B                                          E
You try and make like this is so much fun, but we know it to be be quite contrary
B
La la la la la la


C#m          A                 C#m          A
Dare to be one of us, girl, facing the android's conundrum
E - F#m                           A
   I     felt like I should just cry


G#m                               A
But nothing happens every time I take one on the chin
        G#m                               A
Yeah Himmler in your coat you don't know how long I've been
G#m             A           G#m           A
Watching the lantern dim, starved of oxygen, oh
    F#m                         A            B
so give me your hand and lets jump out the window
