[Verse]
Em                                Am
Some said the local lake had been enchanted
D                                  G
Others said it must have been the weather
Em                                  Am
The neighbors were trying to keep it quiet
D                                  G
But I swear that I could hear the laughter
Em                                Am      
So they jokingly nicknamed it the porridge
D                                                G
'cause overnight that lake had turned to thick as butter
 Em                               Am         Am
But the local kids would still go swimming, drinking
D                             G
Saying hat to them it doesn't matter

[Chorus]
            Am           C
If you just hold in your breath
        D              G
Til you come back up in full
Am           C
Hold in your breath
         D                         G
'til you thought it through, you, fool
 
[Verse]
The genius next door was busing table
Wiping clean the ketchup labels
Getting high and muttering German fables
Didn't care as long as he was able
To strip his clothes off by the dumpster
At night while everyone was sleeping
And wade midway into that porridge
Just him and his secret he was keeping

[Chorus]
           Am            C
if you just hold in your breath
        D               G
til you come back up in full
Am           C
hold in your breath
         D                        G        Em
'til you thought it through, you, foollish child

[Verse]
In the morning the film crews start arriving
With donuts, coffee and reporters
The kids are waking up hung over
The neighbors were starting up their cars
The garbage men were emptying the dumpsters
Atheists were praying full of sarcasm
And the genius next door was sleeping
Dreaming that the antidote is orgasm

[Chorus]
           Am            C
if you just hold in your breath
        D               G
til you come back up in full
Am           C
hold in your breath
         D                        G        Em
'til you thought it through, you, foollish child

Beautiful! XD Although I recommend changing the D in the verses to D/F#. Put an F#dim in between the G's and Em's in the verses too.
