 D  C

 1.
 |:  G      /     D      C  :|  x3
       When I was only a zygote
       I still remember the time
       When there was nothing to know or to think about
 |:  C              G          Am   D  :|
         Except the sound of my mind
         And the sound from outside

 Chorus:
       G                  Am
 SenSurround: down at the bottom
      G(B)           C
 Sensible to ear and sternum
         G(D)                 C  /  D
 And the world first spoke to me in SenSurround
 
 G / D   E / Am
 C
 
 2.
 If mom had known she was expecting
 She might have gone to see Jaws
 Instead of picking a film where the sound effects
 Came right up through the floor
 And I'd be differently formed
 
 Chorus
 
 Bridge:
 D                   C  / Em   G / Em  Am
   Accidentally in a coal mine it was found
 D                      C / Em  G / Em       A               D
   When they accidently dug too far down and found the SenSurround
 
 C
 
 3.
 I still don't know who conceived it
 Or where they got the idea
 But there it was in the aisle by the exit sign
 A woofer covered in wood
 to shake the room when it should
 
 Chorus-2:
 SenSurround - down at the bottom
 Sensible to ear and sternum
 Made the fakeness realistic
 
 When the action went ballistic
 One degree shy of sadistic
 And the world first spoke to me in SenSurround
 
 G / D   E / Am
 
 Instrumental:
 |:  B B+ G#m B+  :|  x3
 B B+ Em
 C
 
 4.
 If I could swim under the water
 Without having to breathe
 If I could follow the trail to the ocean floor
 I think I'd know what there'd be
 Down there waiting for me
 
 Chorus-2
