[Chorus]
B
  well mothers, they may come and go
like waves and tides, they ebb and flow,
    F#
but that’s okay, ‘cause you have learned
to speak in tongues that aren’t your own
G#m
when the others gape and grin
at monster fangs and monster skin
you know your tongue will always win
you know your tongue will always win

[Verse 3]
B
  you thought you found a 
  father on the sea
     F#
what father here could teach you,
care for you, notice you
         E     B
 like he does?

[Verse 4]
G#m                            
    then another man who called
         E
 you his friend
                              G#m
made sure you’d never see him again
and as you sank
    E                          F#   G#m
you knew why they called you a stone

[Verse 5]
G#m
    little boy who whispers when you dream?

what voices talk of giving you real power
                       C#m      B  F#
where you’ve never had control?

[Verse 6]
G#m
little boy, you know it’s
 hard to breathe
    G#m
the water here will drown you                             
running out of you like blood 
              C#m   B  F#
between your teeth

[Chorus]
     G#m
well fathers, they may come and go
like waves and tides, they 
ebb and flow
but that’s okay, 
‘cause you have learned
to use a power that’s not your own
E
when your dealer’s cashing in
uncertainty beneath your skin
you pray that it will never win
you pray that it will never win

[Interlude]
B F# E B F# B F# E B

[Verse 7]
B
  little boy, who loves you 
  like the sea?
     F#
what mother here would wait for you,
                               E     B
call to you, love you like she does?

[Chorus]
B
well mothers, they may come and go
like waves and tides, they ebb and flow
F#
but now you’ve found a mother
who’s convinced you that 
you’ve found a home
E
when your will is wearing thin
you feel the ocean deep within
and know that she will always win
                                  B
you know that she will always win
