Ready For Drowning  Manic Street Preachers

[C#]Here's a true stor[C]y
Said someone to me yester[G]day
Said he'd heard it in a taxi[Em]
[C#]Must have had him at my mercy[C]
Drown that po[G]or thing
Put it out of its [Em]misery
Condemn it to its futu[Am]re
Deny its hi[C]story - deny its history[G]
[Em]So where are we goin[Am]g
We're not [D]ready for drowning[G] [F#]
[Em]So where are we goin[Am]g
We're not re[D]ady for drowning[G]
[Em]    [C#]   [C#]Look through my venetian b[C]linds
dusting the past off [G]of my mind
Seeing orange everywhere[Em]
[C#]I'd go to Patagoni[C]a
but it's harder th[G]ere
I'll do anything to prove [Em]I care
Fascinated by[Am] good
Destroyed by [C]evil
What is there to bel[G]ieve in
[Em]So where are we goin[Am]g
We're not [D]ready for drowning[G] [F#]
[Em]So where are we goin[Am]g
We're not re[D]ady for drowning[G]
Em C# (X4)
(Solo) C G Em
[Am]    [C]   [G]  [Em]So where are we goin[Am]g
We're not [D]ready for drowning[G] [F#]
[Em]So where are we goin[Am]g
We're not re[D]ady for drowning[G]
[Em]G  D[Am]    [D]Am  C   (X2)
