intro   E

                         E
verse   You search your mind

        That's what it's there for
                        A
        Check all the whys'
                      E
        And all the wherefores'

        In your mind

        You're tall and brave
         B
        Riding the crest
              A                  E
        Of a high and beautiful wave

       E
chorus  You make your movements known
              D                A
        And where you want to be
       E
        And everybody knows
                D               A
        That's how it's got to be
       E         D        A       E
        In the sheltered morning sun
                 D        A       E
        In the sheltered morning sun

                 E
verse   Internally

        You make your own rules
                       A
        You'll have excuses
                       E
        The ones that you choose

        In the end

        You deem unsafe;
         B
        Riding the crest
              A                  E
        Of a high and beautiful wave


chorus  You make your movements known...

                       Em  Am
inter   There comes a time
             D                      G
        You don't even know what's missing
              C                 D          E
        Some sugar to make the pill go down
                    Em  Am
        You need a line
           D                   G
        A push in the right direction
             C                    D          E
        The sugar that makes the pill go down

          E
verse   True

        True to form
                  A           E
        True to pre-existing norms

        Truly wasted

        At a rave
         B
        Riding the crest
              A                  E
        Of a high and beautiful wave
         B
        Riding the crest
              A                  E
        Of a high and beautiful wave

instr   E

coda    In the sheltered morning sun

        In the sheltered morning sun
