[Intro x2 :]
Am C D Am7

[Verse 1 :]
The Forest awakes
The desert at dawn
A mountain at night
And the rhythm moves on

The people awake
They're marching along
The streets are alive
With a terrible song

[Chorus :]
Am          G            C      D
Forward and backwards in every direction
    C        D      G
The atoms' perpetual motion
    Am          G            C            D
The shifting of light on the banks of the river
    C            D          G
I'm free, but I'm keeping my clothes on

[Instrumental :] Am C D Am7

[Verse 2 :]
I'm marching along
The street where you live
I'm calling your name
The song is a gift

The song is a road
The road is a face
A face is a time
And a time is place

[Chorus :]
  Am        G        C          D
A place of relief in a time of confusion
  C          D      G
A heart is a simple equation
    Am        G              C        D
With beautiful words and with beautiful people
  C        D          G
A song is a face, is a mountain

[Solo x3 :]
G D Em7 Am

[Bridge :]
A fruit that falls before it's grown
I heard a sound and a bird has flown
Am          G      C        D
It breaks to pieces above the forest
Am        G        C      D
A million particles born today

Am Am

Out beyond the blue horizon
Air cannot escape
Underneath the weeping willow
I can see your face

Free - form calling all over me
Creatures great and small
Doctors pulling them out of you
Hideous, virtuous, both of us

Come in my kitchen
When it rains outside
Sweet inspiration
Sneaks up from behind

[Instrumental :]
E ^ ^ ^

[Verse 3 :]
The forest is true
I know for a fact
That the bigger the front
Then the bigger the back

My heart beating still
Through the perilous night
The bombs burst in the air
But my hair is alright

[Chorus :]
    Am          G            C            D
The shifting of light on the trees and the houses
  C            D        G
I drowned in an ocean of perfume
    Am            G              C            D
The strangeness of words, how the meaning keeps changing
    C          D          G
But somehow the beauty will find you

[Outro x3 :]
Am G C D C D G
