----------------------------------------------------------

Has the ship run a - ground

What's that shape, what's that sound?

That's just me falling down

Some of us are free, some are bound

Some will swim, some will drown

Some of us are saints, some are clowns

Just like me, they're falling down

Chorus:

-----------

C

Well I lied to the nation

Em

While my reputation ran dry

C

>From my lungs to my liver

Em

Clung to the river bank's side

C

Yeah well I'm back in the water

Doing what I oughtta

Em

Trying to lead an ordinary life

Verse two (as verse one):

---------------------------------

Is this world spinning round

Has the ship run aground

What's that shape, what's that sound

That's just me falling down

Some of us are green, some are brown

Some are lost, some are found

Sight unseen, baby, sound on sound

Pray for me, I'm falling down

Chorus Two (as chorus one):

-------------------------------------

I was lost in the jungle

Crossed over enemy lines

Well I got me a red nose

By sleeping under hedgerows at night

Yeah well I tried levitation

Flying in formation

Heaven knows the weight of this crime

(Repeat verse one omitting second stanza)

Ending:

-----------

C Em

Falling down

C Em

Falling down

C Em

Falling down

C Em

Falling down

(Play verse "riff" twice ending with slight crescendo on second time)
