THE GREAT BEYOND              REM


Ive watched the stars fall silent from your eyes 
All the sights that I have seen 
I cant believe that I believed 
I wished That you could see 
Theres a new planet in the solar system 
There is nothing up my sleeve 

Im pushing an elephant up the stairs 
Im tossing up punchlines that were never there 
Over my shoulder a piano falls 
Crashing to the ground 

And all this talk of time 
Talk is fine 
And I dont want to stay around 
Why cant we pantomime, just close our eyes 
And sleep sweet dreams 
Being here with wings on our feet 

Im pushing an elephant up the stairs 
Im tossing up punchlines that were never there 
Over my shoulder a piano falls 
Crashing to the ground 

Im breaking through 
Im bending spoons 
Im keeping flowers in full bloom 
Im looking for answers from the great beyond 

I want the hummingbirds, the dancing bears 
Sweetest dreams of you 
Look into the stars 
Look into the moon 

Im pushing an elephant up the stairs 
Im tossing up punchlines that were never there 
Over my shoulder a piano falls 
Crashing to the ground 

Im breaking through 
Im bending spoons 
Im keeping flowers in full bloom 
Im looking for answers from the great beyond 

Im breaking through 
Im bending spoons 
Im keeping flowers in full bloom 
Im looking for answers from the great 

Im breaking through 
Im bending spoons 
Im keeping flowers in full bloom 
Im looking for answers from the great beyond 

Im breaking through 
Im bending spoons 
Im keeping flowers in full bloom 
Im looking for answers from the great 

THE GREAT BEYOND

----------------------||  guitar 2 (riff A)  the guitar is absent from most 
----------------------||   of the verse, but this riff is played
----------------------||

I've watched the stars fall silent from your eyes
Oh the sights that I have seen  (riff A)
I can't believe that I believed 
I wish that you could see (riff A)
that there's a new planet in the solar system
there is nothing up my sleeve (riff A)

CHORUS
In that chorus...
I think the bassline is going C,B,A.
So I reckon that C, C/B and Am(or maybe the Am7 as in the verse)
It sounds like it matches the song, but is probably a bit off.

C     C/B        Am7
 I'm pushing an elephant up the stairs        
I'm tossing out punchlines that were never there
Over my shoulder a piano falls
G(strum)
crashing to the grouououond

then back into the verse.
