"Fish Sticks" by The Heligoats

(Standard Tuning)

    B   F#  D#  A#

I started having seizures, you started having kids. 
You found your inner self, I found my inner fish. 

F# (Strumming this chord for a few measures)

B, F#
And my other car is a boat, it has a boat name. I thought we both came, 
but no. No such conch, no pontoon, no one is listening to you. 
The sun does wonders to your brain the way it burns right through. 
I am swimming in a trough, Iím sure youíve written me off by now but 
just when I think that all is lost, I see you stepping in the water. 

D#, A#, B, F#
