                G                             D
Back on my planet, they laugh at my jokes,
C                              A
And everyone drinks and everyone smokes
D                          C             G
No-one speaks 'less there's something to say,
C                          A            D
There's no false words, just telecommunique


G                                  D
Back on my planet you cannot tell lies,
C                                     A
'Cos everyone can see it by the look in your eye
D                       C        G        
Parties all last for a couple of days,
C                    A               D
No one sleeps cos beds are prohibited


E                B     E             B
Back on my planet, silence is granted
C                C     E     D
We're laughing at the earthlings
C       B   G    D  C     B  G    D
Back on my planet, back on my planet

And meanwhile...

G                            D
Back on my planet where dinosaurs roam,
C                       A
With uncut TV beaming into your home
D                    C            G
As Mother Nature being eager and free,
C                         A     D
Money don't talk just givin' ability


E              B          E          B
Back on my planet, rules are all slanted
C               C   G   D
We're tokin' to be broken
C     B  G     D     C   B  G     D   C    B   G      D
Back on my planet, back on my planet, back on my planet...

D                       E                    E             A
Where the superpowers will try to run it down

All alone, you're not alone

'Cos it's a meeting time for a different neighbour, small and slight and grey

(The next bit here is basically a solo which I have not transcribed but basically the guitars and bass drift from the root chords of E and C, before going into a heavy bit something like this...using harmonics   (H)  arounf the 2,3,4 fret around the heavy "E'" chords !)

         E E E              HHH        EEE              H H  H

(Now for the "charge out'' leading into the next verse.......this next section is basically 
4 chords played in a variety of timings as Ginger milks this riff dry ! The  chords are  :)

                                                EEEE         A  G  B  F(sharp)

(just listen to how they alternate the timings between half time and full on thrash !!)
The next "dreamy-sequence"  I honestly cannot figure out with all the phasing guitars...but all comments/ideas welcome !  Now onto the next verse........)


C(sharp)                       E                            B                       C(sharp) B A 
I  Im looking at the sky tonight, everything clear defined, just like the last time
                               E          D                     E
All ideas inside my head, anything like a real one?
C(sharp)                          E                           B
I'm looking from the floor tonight, weary of humankind
C(sharp)       B              A
Tired of the chains that bind
                 E                D
Wasting time on diatribe 

AA         BB           AA           BB           AA      BB      AA     BB 
And all the time the walls are closing in, I'm feeling stuck inside again
AA        BB               AA         BB        AA         BB       AA  BB
With something more divine than suicide, more generous than faith 


                  G   A  E    G A   E             G   A  E        D                  A                
Cos when I get to see a new sun arise, I feel myself, bathin' on the other side
      G    A    E      G    A   E      D                         AAAAAAAAAAA....,..
A simple way to win with ease, I'll take a cheap seat, please... 


Chorus:
                         B     A    E      A       B
'Cos you're the only one thing I wanna know
F(sharp)                         E            B
So won't you take me with you when you go?
                        B     A     E      A         B
And there's a million feelings I wanna show
F(sharp)                  E              B..................CCCCCCCCCC
If you take me with you when you go...


D                                            C                       F                     C
Yesterdays dreams count for nothing it seems, 'cos the big life keeps them 
D                                               C                     F                      C
waiting,  And the people we find with another thin mind, they just don't care at all
D                                                 C                    F                        C
And the [halcyon] days of innocence stays as a memory plays it one more
A             C                                  
Time, here today, gone tomorrow


(Now heres a barre chord rifferama ! watch the changes !)


F(sharp)  F(sharp)     E E        FF       GG        AA        CC        DD      EE    D


EEE  D     EEEE D          EEEE  D


(The next section  prepeats fot the length of the speech and  can be played in a variety of places , basically its a build up and dosen't involve much .....although you try singing it and playing it in Gingers wild timing !!!  The riff for the UFO speech is the following :)

Eb---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Bb---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Gb-----------4444 4---555-5-6666-6-77777-------------------------------------------------------------

Ab---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Eb---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is it in layman's terms, phenomenon of UFOs
Is well acknowledged by the state but secret to the president
Employed to be a public face and keep the public feeling safe
But higher powers in government hide something a million times
The size of the killing of JFK, the CIA are aware that higher
Powers exist with untold knowledge of life and death dimension, it could
Alter public awareness of religion, which is the only faith
That keeps us all in true control, and that's why we can never know...


A                                        D            E
They're shaking, and they're f**king us again

                         B     A     E      A       B
'Cos you're the on-ly one thing I wanna know


Chorus:

F(sharp)                                E              B
So won't you take me with you when you go?
                          B     A        E   A      B
And there's a million feelings I wanna show
F(sharp)                              E       B
If you take me with you when you go
                             B     A       E    A     B   
'Cos you're the only one thing I wanna know
F(sharp)                       E               B
If you take me with you when you go
                            B      A        E      A   B
And there's a million feelings I wanna show
F(sharp)                         E              
If you take me with you when you go
                              B     A      E    A      B
'Cos you're the only one thing I wanna know...
