Intro:
(Figure 1)

Verse: 
A5
Every thought's a game 
B5
A pack of chimps I cannot tame
D5                            
You're wondering who to blame
A5                  E5
Now you're ride has come up lame
Fortress full of hate 
Fears and hopes all pound the gate
Too early, it's too late 
What is evil which is great

Chorus:
D5                 E5
Pigs are sheep and cats are dogs and
C#5
Thoughts are made of lincoln logs
D5                   E5
Tend to the mice and wood where
C#5(Variation)
Black is blue and bad is good

Verse two: (same chords as first verse)
Thoughts that I keep my money in 
Melt some wax and chunks of tin
Forget your name, how to walk and ignore 
The light shining in from under the door
Thoughts like a thread through a foam device
Liquid bread and rubber ice
Make a promise, grow teeth and go to bed
Wake up when you're dead

Note: On the last time you play the solo
      you play the normal part twice and
      then you play the variation and the
      normal part again

Chords:
