Repeat Riff 1
I stood stonelike at midnight suspended in my masquerade

I combed my hair till it was just right and commanded the night brigade
      F        C         G            C          F            C        G  C
I was open to pain and crossed by the rain and I walked on a crooked crutch
     F          C                G       C            F        C   G      C     F C
I strolled all alone through a fallout zone and came out with my soul untouched
F    G                                                  Am
 I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd but when they said sit down I stood up
F    G7  | F C | G C | F C | G C 
Ooh-ooh growin' up

Repeat Riff 1
The flag of piracy flew from my mast my sails were set wing to wing 

I had a jukebox graduate for first mate she couldn't sail but she sure could sing
  F         C     G                   C             F        C           G       C
I pushed B-52 and bombed `em with the blues with my gear set stubborn on standing
  F             C                G        C            F    C    G          C       F C
I broke all the rules strafed my old high school never once gave thought to landing
  G                                                    Am
I hid in the clouded warmth of the crowd but when they said`Come down'I threw up 
F    G7  | F C | G C | F C | G C 
Ooh-ooh growin' up

|     3x    | 2x | 
| F C | G C | Am | F | G

Repeat Riff 1
I took month-long vacations in the stratosphere 

And you know it's really hard to hold your breath

I lost everything I ever loved or feared I was the cosmic kid in full custom dress
        F         C            G           C           F        C           G            C
Well my feet they finally took root in the earth but I got me a nice little place in the stars
      F       C         G             C            F      C     G          C  F C
And I swear I found the key to the universe in the engine of an old parked car
  G                                                    Am
I hid in the mother brest of the crowd but when they said`Pull down'I pulled up
F    G7    F     C | G C | F C G | G 
Ooh-ooh growin' up


  C   F   G   G7  Am
