F                          G 
I got high with an art teacher of mine 
C                                G                                             C 
I learned how to paint portraits and landscapes with perspective 
F 
but I've been sitting here 
                G 
the better part of eighteen years 
C 
blank stare blank canvas 
G                      C 
I'm in need of a new view 
     Am 
of some new scenery to render  

F                     G 
there's a boat leaving 
C                    G 
where it goes, well I don't know 


F 
I've been buried alive 
G                                     C 
my history teacher by my side 
                             G                                             C 
lest I forget those mistakes that better men have made 
F 
the battles fought and lost 
G 
small victories at what cost? 
C                                    G                         C 
the curriculum is dated, my inspiration fading 
Am 
a slow setting sun 

F                     G 
there's a boat leaving 
C                    G 
where it goes, well I don't know 
C                    G               C 
but if it floats i'm getting on 
                     Am 
with or without you  

F 
the winds are strong enough 
G                           C 
our native tongues will fail us 
G                                  C 
oh the pleasure I would take  
                     Am 
in renaming everything 

F                       G 
there are boats leaving 
C                      G 
where they go, well I don't know 
C                                          Am 
but it's a chance to see something new 
F 
will you come with me?
