Intro -x2-: C  G  F  G7


C       G            F       G7     C         G               F   G7
  Galileo's head was on the block, crime was looking up the truth   
C              G                F             G         
  And as the bombshells of my daily fears explode
          Am        Em      F   G7
I try to trace them to my youth


C               G               F        G            C        G
  And then you had to bring up reincarnation over a couple of beers
           F    G7
the other night
     C           G           F     G       Am          Em         F   G
Now I'm serving time for mistakes made by another in another lifetime

Chorus:
     C            G             F          G
How long till my soul gets it right?   Can any Human
 C           G                  F      G
Being ever reach that kind of light?  I call on the
 Am      Em        D                 F          G         C
Resting soul  of  Galileo, king of night vision, king of insight

Interlude: F  G
 
C                G               F    G7  C             G              F   G7
  Then I think about my fear of motion      of which I never could explain
C              G             F            G              Am         Em
  Some other fool across the ocean years ago must have crashed his little 
     F   G
airplane

Chorus:
     C            G             F          G
How long till my soul gets it right?   Can any Human
 C           G                  F      G
Being ever reach that kind of light?  I call on the
 Am      Em        D                 F          G         C
Resting soul  of  Galileo, king of night vision, king of insight

Bridge:
Am                 F            
I'm not making a joke, you know me
       Am               F
I take everything  so  seriously
      Am                          F            
If we wait for the time till all souls get it right
          G                   F         G          F
Than at least I know there'll be no nuclear annihilation
       C       G                 F    G
in my lifetime - I'm still not right

Solo: C  G  F  G7  Am  Em  D - D  F  G  C


C          G                F    G7  C               G      F   G7
I offer thanks to those before me.  That's all I've got to say
        C          G            F             G          Am    Em      F   G
Cause maybe you squandered big bucks in your lifetime.  Now I have to pay


            C                  G                F    G7  
But then again it feels like some sort of inspiration
             C        G        F   G7
To let the next life off the hook
               C          G          F             G 
She'll say, "look what I had to overcome from my last life
Am              Em      F   G
  I think I'll write a book"

Chorus:
          C            G             F          G
     How long till my soul gets it right?   Can any Human
      C           G                  F      G
     Being ever reach the highest light?  Except for the
      Am      Em     D                 F          G         C     G F G
     Resting soul - Galileo, king of night vision, king of insight
           C           G             F   G
     How long till my soul gets it right
           C           G                 F   G
     How long till I meet that highest light...
           C   G  F  G  C
     How lo-o-ong?
