Verse 1
E           F#        C#    E
I've had it with this town
        F#        B        E
I never saw those shifting skies
        F#      C#      A
I never saw the ground
              F#    A
Or the sunset rise
                     E        F#      C#
I want to live on an abstract plain

Verse 2
E   F#         C#     E
I'm building a frame
           F#     B        E
A place to put my ten-yard stare
         F#      C#     A
Thinking of that paint
                F#    A
Painted in plein-air
                     E        F#      C#
I want to live on an abstract plain

Chorus 1
C#m      Am
I need a new address
C#m         Am
I want some new terrain
C#             A
Is it North or South?
                     E        F#      C#
I want to live on an abstract plain

Solo over verse chords

Verse 3 (same chords as previous two verses)
I could sit on the roof
On top of that abstract house
See my abstract view
An abstract mouse
I want to live on an abstract plain

Chorus 2 (same chords as first chorus)
I need a new address
Tell me I'm not insane
Is it up or down?
I want to live on an abstract plain
