Three Balloons and a Trapdoor
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
By SANDBOX --- From: Bionic


Hey everyone! This is my first tab and I'm proud of it. I figured
this song out a few years ago after I saw Sandbox live when they
were on tour with the Barenaked Ladies... Saw that this wasn't up
on the OLGA so I figured this song would be a good place to start
my tab writing ;)

LYRICS
~~~~~~

[riff one]
There's a feeling I've been misplaced
But my soul is safely riding three balloons
Here's a shelter of the magic kind
Where falseness is a passion you won't find

[riff two]
I'm breathing fog but I don't mind
My body has no sense of time
I'm hearing sounds I can't explain
All I can do is fly away

[riff one]
Can a vision fall short of dreams
There's a downy angel crouching at my feet
Illusions fill my sleeping head and
Dreams fade like a runway strip on fire

[riff three]
Angels never show you trapdoors
But they don't lie
Angels never show you trapdoors
Until illusions die away

[riff one]
A Sunday smile falls from my face
I can't persuade in worlds I cannot stay
Gracious blood flows through my veins
But my soul would favor riding three balloons

[riff two]
A fearless space of touch and time
Where everything is genuine
My fingers grasp but I can't stay
