"I don't want to hear the noises on TV
 I don't want the salesmen coming after me
 I don't want to live in my father's house no more

 I don't want it faster, I don't want it free
 I don't want to show you what they've done to me
 I don't want to live in my father's house no more

 I don't want to choose black or blue
 I don't want to see what they've done to you
 I don't want to live in my father's house no more"


Chorus:

Em          G              
Because the tide is high
Em          G                
   And it's rising still
Em          C                          G
      And I don't want to see it at my windowsill

"I don't want to give them my name and address
 I don't want to see what happens next
 I don't want to live in my father's house no more

 I don't want to live with my father's debt
 You can't forgive what you can't forget
 I don't want to live in my father's house no more

 I don't want to fight in the holy war
 I don't want the salesmen knocking at my door
 I don't want to live in America no more"


Chorus:

Em          G              
Because the tide is high

I don't want to see it at my windowsill

"MTV what have you done to me?
 Save my soul, set me free
 Set me free, what have you done to me?
 I can't breathe, I can't see
 World war three, when are you coming for me?
 Been kicking up sparks to set the flames free
 The windows are locked now, so what'll it be?
 A house on fire or the rising sea?"

Chorus:

Em          G              
Why is the night so still?
Em          G                
  Why did I take the pill?
Em          C                          G         
  Because I don't want to see it at my windowsill

  C		             G
I don't want to see it at my windowsill ] x 3
