CHORUS
I've been
G  F   C       G         G      F       C     G
seeing things, I've been seeing things        Don't have
G  F     C   G        G       F         C     G
answers, but I've got lots of questions

VERSE
F         C   G 
Car pulls up, someone gets out
F             C      G
Hands someone else a violin case
F                 C               G
I'm trying not to let them see me looking at them
        F           C           G
But I'm pretty sure there was a doll inside

CHORUS
G  F           C         G          G          F   C   G
   Keep your eyes peeled and you'll see stuff          Which at
G     F     C    G   G          F       C        G
first seems like unimportant irrelevant things

VERSE
F          C        G
Can't just ask some perfect stranger 
F             C              G
"What are you hiding in your violin case?"
F           C    G
Shadow them at a distance instead
F          C            G
Try to get inside their head

BRIDGE
opening riff is something like:
B|---3---3---3---3---3---3---
G|---------0-----------------
D|-0---2-------4---0---2-----
A|-------------------------3-

continues like:
e|-----------------3---3---2---2--------------------3-2-3-------5---
B|-3---3---5---5-------------------3---3---5---5--------------------

             D  C   G      D 
Where'd they go now?     I got
   D       C   G       D
distracted             They gave
D  C      G      D
me the slip      Wearing
D C     G      D
a disguise        That
D   C   G    D
lady         Must've
D       C      G     D
ditched the case     Hid the
D    C   G   D
doll         What's she
D  A  C
up to now?

CHORUS (INSTRUMENTAL)
G F C G G F C G
G F C G G F C G

VERSE
F          C           G
Trail went cold by the airport road
F             C        G
Watching them stack containers in rows
F         C           G
Seagulls, helicopter, windblown trash
F         C       G
Something doesn't add up

BASS/KEYBOARD BREAK (chorus)
G F C G G F C G

CHORUS
I've been
G  F   C       G         G      F       C     G
seeing things, I've been seeing things        No one
G      F   C   G      G         F       C     G
asked, but I'm paying all kinds of attention

VERSE
F         C          G
Later I'm watching a news report
F      C         G
Camera pans across a crime scene
F     C      G
Unremarked upon detail
F     C      G
Empty violin case
F     C             G
Okay, maybe not the same case
F         C         G
Different material, different color
F          C       G
Still, you have to wonder
         F    G       G
Am I the only one who knows?

I've been
G  F   C       G         G      F       C     G
seeing things, I've been seeing things        I've been
G  F   C       G         G      F       C     G
seeing things, I've been seeing things
