*: strum the last chord without pressing down, i.e. as a harmonic, until the next chord

<> refers to a harmonic, thus <b7> is a harmonic on the 7th fret of the b string 
and <full5> is a harmonic on the 5th fret of all the strings

B5   A5-B5   A5-B5   A5-B5   A5-G5   A5-B5

It's gonna be too hot to breathe today
But everybody's out here on the streets
Somebody's opened up the fire hydrant
Cold water rushing out in sheets

Some kid in a Marcus Allen jersey
Asks me for a cigarette
Companionship is where you find it
So I take what I can get

D                                  Asus4
Hubcaps on the cars like fun house mirrors
Stick to the shadows when I can
             B5       <b7> A5-B5 <full5>
Lovecraft in Brooklyn

When the sun goes down the armies of the voiceless
Several hundred-thousand strong
Come out without their bandages
Their voices raised in song

When the street lights sputter out
They make this awful sizzling sound
I cast my gaze toward the pavement
Too many blood stains on the ground

Rhode Island drops into the ocean
No place to call home anymore
             B5*      A5-B5*
Lovecraft in Brooklyn

Head outside most everyday to try to keep the wolves away
G                   D
Imagine nice things I might say
G                 F#    B5*  A5-B5*  <full7, emphasis on the g string>
If company should come

A5-B5*  A5-B5* (keep playing the * for the rest of the song)

Woke up afraid of my own shadow
Like, genuinely afraid
Headed for the pawnshop
To buy myself a switchblade

Someday something's coming
From way out beyond the stars
To kill us while we stand here
It'll store our brains in mason jar

And then the girl behind the counter 
She asks me how I feel today
I feel like Lovecraft in Brooklyn
