C#		  C
Here's a true story
			 G
Said someone to me yesterday

Said he'd heard it in a taxi

Must have had him at my mercy
	     G
Drown that poor thing
		  Em
Put it out of its misery

		      Am
Condemn it to its future
	   C			     G
Deny its history - deny its history

Em		    Am
So where are we going

We're not ready for drowning

Look through my venetian blinds
		     G
dusting the past off of my mind
			 Em
Seeing orange everywhere

C#		  C
I'd go to Patagonia
		  G
but it's harder there
			  Em
I'll do anything to prove I care

	     Am	
Fascinated by good
             C
Destroyed by evil
                    G
What is there to believe in

Em		    Am
So where are we going
          D			G	F#
We're not ready for drowning

So where are we going

We're not ready for drowning
