There's hotels in the sea, trash in the sky
The net-dustry's growing.

Verse 3: (use verse 1 chords)
They push you away or tie you up
It don't really matter.
But if your head is up you won't get much sadder.

Chorus 2: (use chorus 1 chords) (some variation)
But who am I to preach a word or two
when I can't lift my own head without you?
If my mental state kept you from coming around
I hope the world would shoot me down for losing you.
A broken branch I'd be if you weren't grown to me.
Oh, you are my family tree, be good to me, be good to me, be good to me.
Take care of me.

[intro chords]
Bop bop.
