[Verse]

F#
When I was done dying my conscience regained
F#
So I began my struggle a nothingness strained 
F#
Out a flash made of time my new form blasted out 
F#
And it startled me so and I burst out a shout
F#
At which my legs ran frantic like birds from a nest 
F#
And I ran until drained leaving no choice but rest
F#
So I fell asleep softly at the edge of a cave
F#
But I should have gone in deeper but I'm not so brave
F#
And like that I was torn out and thrown in the sky
F#
And I said all my prayers because surely I'll die 
F#
As I crashed down and smashed into earth, into dirt
F#
How my skin did explode leaving only my shirt
F#
But from shirt grew a tree and then tree grew a fruit
F#
And I became the seed and that seed was a brute
F#
And I clawed through the ground with my roots and my leaves
F#
And I tore up the shirt and I ate up the sleeves
F#
And they laughed out at me and said "what is your plan?"
F#
But their question was foreign I could not understand
F#
When then suddenly I'm ripped up and placed in a mouth
F#
And it swallowed me down at which time I head south


[Chorus]

F#
I said
D#m
Hey ya ya
D#m
Hey ya ya
D#m
Hey ya ya
B
Hey hey hey
D#m
Hey ya ya
D#m
Hey ya ya
D#m
Hey ya ya
B
Hey hey hey


[Verse]

F#
Well I woke up to see them, these two mighty steeds
F#
With their mouths grinning wildly expressing my needs
F#
As they stood there above me, being flanked on each side
F#
I felt no need to fear them, no reason to hide
F#
So I reached up to touch but they faded too soon
F#
Yet their mouths still remained and stacked up towards the moon
F#
How that ladder of mouth waved so soft in the night
F#
And I looked up in awe at that beautiful sight
F#
And I dreamt about climbing into the night sky
F#
But I know had I touched them they'd mouth back 'bye bye'
F#
So I got up and walked down the path in the dark 
F#
And there deep in the distance my eye caught a spark
F#
Of a crab twice my size with incredible strength
F#
Oh it greeted me kindly and then we all drank
F#
And we drooled out together right onto the ground
F#
And the ocean grew quickly right up all around
F#
And the earth looked at me and said "wasn't that fun?"
F#
And I replied "I'm sorry if I hurt anyone"
F#
And without even thinking cast me into space
F#
But before she did that she wiped off my own face
F#
She said better luck next time don't worry so much
F#
Without ears I couldn't hear I could just feel the touch
F#
As I fell asleep softly at the edge of a cave
F#
But I should have gone deeper but I'm not so brave


[Chorus]

F#
I said 
D#m
Hey ya ya 
D#m
Hey ya ya
D#m
Hey ya ya
B
Hey hey hey 
D#m
Hey ya ya 
D#m
Hey ya ya
D#m
Hey ya ya
B
Hey hey hey
