Chromatic riff: |G5       |G5       |G5       |G5       | 2x

Verse 1:
[n.c.] On a train to [G5]nowhere, in another nightmare
In a dream about falling for someone and [E5]taking her
back to my [A5]room
Tangled up in her hair and believing [D5]everything goes
and then anything more is al- [G5]right

Verse 2:
[n.c.]On a road to [G5]somewhere, where it goes I don't care
but it keeps on winding and [E5]winding and winding a- [A5]way
Sitting next to me are lovely seno- [D5]ritas
Reality way in the back of my [G5]mind [fast riff]


Chorus:
I'm under the [C5]influence I [D5]find it's [C5]all in my [D5]mind
and under the [C5]influence the [D5]blind will lead the [G5]blind
Thunder and [C5]lightning in my [D5]head but [C5]only in [D5]bed
I'm under the [C5]influence of [D5]something from the [G5]blue

Chromatic riff 2x

Verse 3:
[n.c.]When I wake a [G5]new day, on a better do day
But the dreams keep calling and [E5]calling and calling me [A5]back
Definitely no no
need a new a- [D5]migo to help me get my reality [G5]right [fast riff]

Verse 4:
[n.c.]What the hell will [G5]I do
Facing up to tell you
Will I be breaking the [E5]ice and falling [A5]through?
Definitely no no
Found a new a- [D5]migo to help me get my reality [G5]right [fast riff]

Chorus:
I'm under the [C5]influence I [D5]find it's [C5]all in my [D5]mind
and under the [C5]influence the [D5]blind will lead the [G5]blind
Thunder and [C5]lightning in my [D5]head but [C5]only in [D5]bed
I'm under the [C5]influence of [D5]something from the [E5]blue
I'm under the [C5]influence of [D5]something from the [G5]blue
