VERSE

guitar chords
C#m   x 4 6 6 5 4
G#    4 6 6 5 4 4
F#    2 4 4 3 2 2
E     0 2 2 1 0 0

C#m
Drink the water drink it down

This time I know I'm bound
   G#
To spit it back up
F#
I didn't want this
C#m
Salty substitute, just not going to do
  G#             F#
I need some air, if I'm going to live through
C#m
This experience reminds me of a clock 
     G#
That just won't tick
F#
I want to wake up 
C#m
From this concussion

But my dreams just not done
    G#
I'm late again, 
     F#                C#m
It's just one of those bad days

Look outside and

Be careful what you ride
    G#
You just might find 
F#                 E
That you're out of time
   G#      C#m
To swim ashore
     E          G#
If I drift long enough
        C#m
I'll be home

  (notice that there are two main riffs for the verse
   the C#m, G# and F# one and the E, G# and C#m one...
   these will be called VERSE part 1 and VERSE part 2
   from now onwards)

(repeat INTRO [x2]) 

(guitar silent)
He's got delusions between his ears
Man it takes up too much space
And all that tension between his gears man
He'll never ever leave this place

(VERSE part 1 pattern begins again play it [x2])

He's got stones instead of bones
And everybody knows
Ah, man that can make you real real slow
And if heaven was below
He'd know just where to go
Dive in the ocean
And he'd sink like a stone
And he'd say

(VERSE part 2 now [x2])


It's time to swim ashore
If I drift long enough
I'll be home

(back to VERSE part 1 [x2]) 

Hold on if you can
You're gonna sink faster 
Than you can imagine so
Hold on if you can
You're gonna sink faster 
Than you can imagine so

(VERSE part 2 again [x2])

It's just time to swim ashore
If I drift long enough
