Intro: Cm Eb Ab Fm Eb Ab

Cm
The world is strange, the world is strange
Eb
It's all a game, a shooting range
Ab                              
For apathy and empathy
Fm  Eb              Bb        
Psychology and therapy
Cm
And even if I'm eloquent
Eb
This all defies my sentiment
Ab
The information's always there
Fm              Eb         Bb
It's in your food and tangled in your hair


Cm
And I see the exoskeleton
Eb
It's PVC or gelatin
     Fm
Or wood or lead or anything
Bb
For water mud or medicine
G
So here's a song about everything


Cm               Eb            Fm            Ab Bb
Let me cut it open and explore the information
Cm                                  Eb             Fm         Ab Bb 
In the pipes that make it mazes of logistical holisticism
Fm                        Gm 
Deep Thought is in everyone
          Ab               Bb                                Cm
And everyone's in deep thought all the time


Cm                         Eb
Hovering intangibly is everything you mean to me
Fm                                            Bb
I'd open up your humming heart if only I knew where to start
Cm                                                 Eb
These microscopes replace my eyes and everything it magnifies
Fm                                               Bb
Is something new but everywhere you cast a shadow on the atoms in the air
Cm                                                    Eb
And I see the breath you're drawing in, you're like a moving mannequin
Fm                                                Bb
There shouldn't be a thing inside, but I could understand you if I tried
G
And let me tell you I've tried and tried so


Cm                  Eb            Fm                  Ab Bb 
Let me cut you open and explore the information
Cm                                    Eb              Fm              Ab Bb 
In the pipes that make you mazes of elusive existentialism
Fm                 Gm        Ab                   Bb                         Cm
MULTIVAC is everyone and everyone's a circle in the ground


Cm
There's no emotion in my eyes
Eb
I'm just a robot in disguise
Fm
The passion when it came to me
Bb
Was more than sonic fallacy
Cm
And I can feel the torch down the back of my throat
Eb
Illuminating from behind the puny words that I wrote
Fm
Don't trust me any more, 
G
I just don't trust me any more


Cm                        Eb          Fm              Ab Bb 
And I will cut me open and explore the information
Cm                                   Eb                     Fm            Ab Bb 
In the pipes that make a maze out of my logical determinism
Fm                    Gm                   Ab                        Bb
I am HAL and HAL is me and you are me and we are all together 
Fm                    Gm                        Ab                        Bb
I am HAL and HAL is me and you are me and we are all together 
Cm                Eb                    Fm                    G
I am HAL and HAL is me and you are me and we are all
