Intro: Eb

Eb                                         Cm
They heard me singing and they told me to stop
                                  Ab              Eb
Quit these pretentious things and just punch the clock
                                     Cm
These days my life, I feel it has no purpose
                               Ab           Eb
But late at night the feelings swim to the surface


                                      Cm
'Cause on the surface the city lights shine
                                Ab         Eb
They're calling at me, come and find your kind
                                     Cm
Sometimes I wonder if the World's so small
                       Ab            Eb
That we can never get away from the sprawl

Chorus:
Ab             Eb
Living in the sprawl
Ab             Eb               Ab                Eb          Eb  
Dead shopping malls rise like mountains beyond mountains
               Cm
And there's no end in sight
                             Ab              Eb
I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights


Eb                                Cm
We rode our bikes to the nearest park
                         Ab             Eb
Sat under the swings and kissed in the dark
                                   Cm
We shield our eyes from the police lights
                    Ab          Eb
We run away, but we don't know why


                                    Cm
On the black river, the city lights shine
                                  Ab         Eb
They're screaming at us, we don't need your kind
                                     Cm
Sometimes I wonder if the world's so small
                       Ab            Eb
That we can never get away from the sprawl

Chorus:
Ab             Eb
Living in the sprawl
Ab             Eb               Ab                Eb          Eb  
Dead shopping malls rise like mountains beyond mountains
               Cm
And there's no end in sight
                             Ab              Eb
I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights

Interlude: Gb Ebm Gb Bb

Eb                                         Cm
They heard me singing and they told me to stop
                                  Ab              Eb
Quit these pretentious things and just punch the clock
                                     Cm
Sometimes I wonder if the world's so small
                 Ab            Eb
Can we ever get away from the sprawl?

Chorus:
Ab             Eb
Living in the sprawl
Ab             Eb               Ab                Eb          Eb  
Dead shopping malls rise like mountains beyond mountains
               Cm
And there's no end in sight
                             Ab              Eb
I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights

Interlude: Eb Cm

                             Ab              Eb
I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights
