AUSTRALIA            THE SHINS



G|-----------4--6---|
D|--2--4--6--4------|   (x 4)


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

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


Woo ooo, Woo ooo


E	          C#m                               F#m
A dual tone under wall, selfish fool and hoped you'd save us all
 	A            F#m          E
Never dreamt of such sterile hands,   	 
 	                     C#m
You keep them folded in your lap,
 	             F#m
And raise them up to beg for scraps,
                 A	                   F#m
You know, he's holding you down, With the tips of his fingers
B
just the same


                          E
You'll be pulled from the ocean,
 	               B
But just a minute too late,
 	        E
Or changed by a potion,
 	                     B
We'll find a handsome young mate, For you to love.
 	  C#m                           A
You'll be damned to pining through the windowpanes,
    C#m                                  A        (E)
You know you'll change your life for any ordinary Joe,
E  F#m	                      A
And though your night will go on,
                G#m                           B
Your nightmares only need a year or two to unfold.


E  C#m  F#m
A  F#m  E
E  C#m  F#m
A  F#m  E



 B
Been in love since you were twenty-one,	 
E	
You haven't laughed since January,	 
 B
You try and make this up this is so much fun,	 
E	
But we know it to be quite contrary.	 
 B
lalalala, la la la la 	 
C#m	   A
Dare to be one of us, girl,
C#m	    A
Facing the Andrum's conundrum,
E  F#m	                         A
Ah, I 	feel like I should just cry,
     G#m                         A/B*
But nothing happens every time I take one on the chin,
 	G#m	                          A/B
You're humoring your cote, you don't know how long I've been,
 G#m	             A/B
Watching the lantern dim,	 
G#m	      A/B
Starved of oxygen	
    A	                        F#m	              E
So give me your hand, and let's jump out the window.
