Going To Alaska

	  		
Intro: G C G D  G C G D   

G                C 
The jacaranda are wet with color, 
        G                            D 
And the heat is a great paint brush, lending color to our lives, 
     G                                C 
To the air, and to out faces; but i'm going to alaska 
              G                         D 
Where there's snow to suck the sound out from the air. 

C G 

G       C 
Up, yes, in the branches, 
G                       D 
The purple blossoms, go pale at the edges; 
         G                              C 
There is moaning in the shifting of the sap, and i see in them traces 
G                           D 
Of last year, but then they hadn't grown so strong, 
G                                    C 
And their limbs were more like wires. now they are cables. 
G                           D                    G 
Thick and alive with alien electricity, and i am going to alaska, 
     C                         G 
Where you can go blind just by looking at the ground, 
D 
Where fat is eaten by itself 
C                         G 
Just to keep your body warm. 

G                         C 
Because from where we are now, it seems, really, 
    G                           D 
That everything is growing in a thousand different ways; 
G                                        C 
That the soil is soaked through with old blood and with relatives 
G                                           D 
Who were buried here, or close to here, and they are giving rise 
G                                C 
To what is happening. or can you tell me otherwise? 
     G                          D 
I am going to alaska, where the animals can kill you, 
        G                     C 
But they do so in silence, as though if no-one hears them, 
        G                         D 
Then it really won't matter. i am going to alaska. 
C                                     G 
They tell me that it's perfect for my purposes.
