Tuning: standard

         Am               C                 Em         X-all strings muted

C - Am x4
C                                                  Am
Momma woke up at 3 a.m. with her pillow soaked in sweat
C                                                    Am
In her mind an image was burned that she will not forget
C                                                     Em
The hands of fate are tied and their work cannot be undone
She was made to watch in helpless horror 
                        X            X          C
as the water filled the lungs of her first born son

Am  C   Em   C  Am
C                                                  Am
Present day, the down is gone, and contour feathers grow
C                                                Am
The time has come to reap what my ancestors have sown 
C                                                 Em
I had tools and boots but hope I think was the heaviest thing

So when the waves rushed in they pressed me tight 
    X    X      X 
And I began to sink

    X      C                                  
I'm just a handful of cells                    ----|
in an ocean full of stars                          |from here on
        Am                                         |is strummed
How am I supposed to find my place                 |not plucked
In a world that's so bizarre?                      on the last few 
      C                                            words of a verse,
My country's invading others                       place pinky and
For reasons I can't explain                        Index on the two
     Am                                            higher strings
There's too much plastic in the ocean
And corrosive acid in the rain
The tower has been toppled and
it won't point up again
The snowflakes aren't so pretty when
there's a glacier plowing in
How can we take up arms over things
that are so small
While the levels of kelp are rising
And will soon consume us all
Tangled in the wire mesh of hate
that holds me down
I nod in understanding
    Em     C     Am
So this is how I drown
   C      Em     Gm
So this is how I drown   X3
   Em      C     Am
So this is how I drown  
   C      Em     Gm
So this is how I drown
