			     OFF THE MAP - Alkaline Trio
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SONG: "Off the Map"
ARTIST: Alkaline Trio
ALBUM: This Addiction (2010)

WORDS: Dan Andriano
MUSIC: Alkaline Trio

===============================================================================
** NOTES **

Dan is notorious for throwing in small flourishes and making slight variations
to recurring sections.  Instead of trying to roadmap everything with a jumble 
of notes, here's the entire song as-is.

Everything is played in straight 16th notes.  Just follow along.

Lyrics below.

Enjoy!

LYRICS

[Verse 1]

I needed more wine, you needed more sleep.
We just fought two hours and seven minutes.
Honestly, I'm surprised we made it.
I retired to my chair, I grabbed my new guitar,
But I can't make a sound.
You could hear poisonous pins dropping all around like rain.
But I can ride this storm out,
Because I'm like a junkie for your smart mouth.

[Chorus 1]

See, I'm so far off the map the sun is shining
While it's raining, and I'm draped in silver lining.
And I can row, row, row my boat back to shore some day.
So, are you coming with me?
Anchors away!

[Verse 2]

I loosen my lips, and the truth slips out.
A free ride on a forked tongue,
This twine of trust is unspun.
I could start to believe that's what you need from me,
So far from what I want for you,
But I'll lock it down, and we'll make do.
You're right, there's only one real option,
And I'm here now, so help me keep my voice down.

[Chorus 2]

See, I'm so far off the map the sun is shining
While it's raining, and I'm draped in silver lining.
And I can row, row, row my boat back to shore some day.
So, are you coming with me?
Anchors away!

[Chorus 3]

Yeah, I'm so far off the map the sun is shining
While it's raining, and I'm draped in silver lining.
And I can row, row, row my boat back to shore some day.
So, are you coming with me?
Anchors away!
