Intro: Em D
Verse 1:
[Em]This rock of ours is just some big mistake
And we will [D]never know just where we go or where we have came, from
[Em]These veins of mine are now some sort of fuse
And when [D]they light up and my mind blows up, my heart is amused so
[Em]This heart of mine is just some sort of map
That doesn't [D]care at all or worry about, where the hell you're at but you're right there!
Verse 2:
[Em]Well I've been meaning to dismiss you, yeah I have some plans to dismiss you
So stand [D]by, by, by, by, bye-bye, wave bye sugar boats!
[Em]As soon as you paint every last grain of sand, as you soon as you paint every star,
In the sky, sky, sky, sky, sky, sky, wave b[D]ye sugar boats!
[Em]Well, I'm swatting at mosquitoes as they're orbiting me
I'm orbit[D]ing the sun and this goes on and on and on, you see
[Em]This heart of mine is just some, some broke machine
And when [D]it gets a-goin' and it often gets goin', it starts blowin' steam, here we go again!
Verse 3:
[Em]This rock of ours is just some big mistake
And we will [D]never know just where we go, or where we have came, from
[Em]This watch of mine is like some sort of void
Cause when [D]I look in and I shouldn't look in I, I see it swallow my time, oh no there it goes!
Verse 4:
[Em]I ain't getting on no fast plane, hell, I ain't getting on no stuffy train
Sugar [D]boats on the Atlantic are fine, the sugar boats, they're just fine
[Em]I'll stand on the deck so you could see
I'll stand on the deck you could wave [D]bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye
[Em]bye, bye, bye, bye bye, bye, bye,
[D]bye, bye, bye, bye bye, bye, bye,
[Em]bye, bye, bye, bye bye, bye, bye,
[D]bye, bye, bye, bye bye, bye, bye......
