this is pretty much the whole song up until the outro.
for the outro ("it was grey and there was no sunset" and on) you just strum the G chord however best suits the
song.

lyrics:

(chorus)

I'm runnin' water through,
I'm runnin' water through my mind

I'm running water through,
I'm running water through my mind

(verse)

Nothing but shops! 
And roads to go to roads in America

All's best forgot!
And it's easy when you try to remember everything you've come across

Can't turn nothing off!
For the fear that you'll be alone with your own thoughts

(chorus)

(verse)

(outro)

It was grey and there was no sunset
she said she liked it when you spoke in Spanish,
it reminds of her of sex

It was grey and it fell flat
She says, "it leaves me feeling flat"
I said, why don't you speak in Spanish?
why the fuck don't you speak in Spanish then?

About the artist behind To Roads To Go To Roads To Go:

Ugly Casanova is an American indie rock band carried on Sub Pop Records. At present, the band has only released one album: Sharpen Your Teeth. According to the Ugly Casanova website, in 1998 a man named Edgar Graham, a.k.a. "Ugly Casanova", impressed himself upon the band Modest Mouse while backstage at a concert in Denver, Colorado. After some prodding, he shared his work with the band, and began performing it early before shows while some people were milling around. Whenever he completed these performances, he retreated quickly with a look of anger and shame. After a time, a few small recordings were created, after which Edgar vanished.

Isaac Brock has since revealed that Edgar Graham was "a fiction thing that [Brock] started a while back to eliminate [himself] from the band," to escape having to do interviews.[1] One bit of evidence that had previously suggested that story was false: Modest Mouse's 1996 EP The Fruit That Ate Itself was credited to having been under the production company Ugly Casanova, which suggested it was a name Brock made up to retain creative control and publishing rights to his music while under a major label. The band lineup now consists of Isaac Brock (Modest Mouse), Tim Rutili (Califone, Red Red Meat), Pall Jenkins (The Black Heart Procession), John Orth (Holopaw), and Brian Deck.

Two tracks released by Ugly Casanova, "Baby's Clean Conscience" and "Parasites", appear earlier as unreleased demos of Modest Mouse in the Paracite Sessions purportedly recorded in 1993 at Calvin Johnson's Dub Narcotic Studio. In 1997 the single To Roads To Go was released [1] on the apparently now defunct Magic Eye Records, however, this is likely considered an entirely different incarnation of Ugly Casanova by Brock et al.

It seems that another release is unlikely, owing to contract issues between Modest Mouse's label, Epic Records, and the contract Brock signed with Sub Pop Records to produce the record.
