Highrise
(on 3ep's album)

     G          Am7    C          C/B       D
come down we'll fall floating and free at last
      G           Am7             C      C/B       D
eyes dead faces blurred behind concrete steel and glass
G                     B    C               Am
watching our lives go by right before our eyes
       G         Am          C          Am
don't quite know why we're doing the highrise
C             Am
doing the highrise
C            Am      G      B
doing the highrise yeah

thoughts collide then die splintered inside your skull
like the sweetly sick high of a sugar-coated candy pill
maybe i'll drift away to a place where i can stay
meanwhile i am still doing the highrise
doing the highrise
doing the highrise yeah

one day someday i'll get myself outta here
and then maybe i'll find peace of mind somewhere
leaving them far behind they're twisted and unkind
still don't know why i'm doing the highrise
doing the highrise
doing the highrise yeah
