Three Balloons and a Trapdoor
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
By SANDBOX  ---  From: Bionic


Hey everyone!  This is my first tab and I'm proud of it.  I figured
this song out a few years ago after I saw Sandbox live when they
were on tour with the Barenaked Ladies... Saw that this wasn't up
on the OLGA so I figured this song would be a good place to start
my tab writing ;)

--------------------------------------------------- LYRICS ~~~~~~ [riff one] There's a feeling I've been misplaced But my soul is safely riding three balloons Here's a shelter of the magic kind Where falseness is a passion you won't find [riff two] I'm breathing fog but I don't mind My body has no sense of time I'm hearing sounds I can't explain All I can do is fly away [riff one] Can a vision fall short of dreams There's a downy angel crouching at my feet Illusions fill my sleeping head and Dreams fade like a runway strip on fire [riff three] Angels never show you trapdoors But they don't lie Angels never show you trapdoors Until illusions die away [riff one] A Sunday smile falls from my face I can't persuade in worlds I cannot stay Gracious blood flows through my veins But my soul would favor riding three balloons [riff two] A fearless space of touch and time Where everything is genuine My fingers grasp but I can't stay All I can do is fly away...
