Intro -x2-: C  Am  Em  G
 
Verse 1:
     C
In a far and distant galaxy
  Am
Inside my telescope I see
  Em
a pair of eyes peer back at me
   G
He walks and talks and looks like me
C
Sits around inside his house
     Am
From room to room he moves about
Em
Fills his life with pointless things
    G                        C
And wonders how it all turns out.
            Am
Do do do do   do
            Em
Do do do do   do
     G
It's safe to say that
 
Chorus:
C                      Em
I don't think you understand!
                  Dm
There's nowhere left to turn
  G
Walls keep breaking
 
C                           Em
Time is like a leaf in the wind
             Dm
Either it's time well spent
   G
Or time I've wasted, don't waste it.
 
Interlude: C Am Em G
 
Verse 2:
  C
Afraid of what the truth might bring
   Am
He locks his doors and never leaves
Em
Desperately searching for signs
    G
Too terrified, to find a thing
  C
He battens all the hatches down
    Am
And wonders why he hears no sounds
 Em
Frantically searching his dreams
   G                      C
He wonders what it's all about
            Am
Do do do do   do
            Em
Do do do do   do
     G
It's safe to say that
 
Chorus:
C                      Em
I don't think you understand!
                Dm
There's nowhere left to turn
G
Walls keep breaking
 
C                          Em
Time is like a leaf in the wind
             Dm
Either it's time well spent
   G
or time I've wasted.

Bridge:
C
Here in my mind, losing my friends
Em
Fall on my face do it again.
    Dm
You say how, do, you do.
G
  Man, how 'bout you? Man, how 'bout you?
C
  To be free, to be sold
Em
  To be killed, to be saved
Dm
  In my head, I'm alone
G
  I'm not dead, I'm ashamed
C
  Just like you, I've been tryin'
Em
  To escape, in my bones
Dm
  I feel cold, I give thanks
G
  To the lord, industry
C
  In this street, let me go
Em
  Let me be, I don't need
Dm
  To be here, I'm alone
G
  Can't you see? Can't you see?
 
Chorus:
C                      Em
I don't think you understand!

There's nowhere left to turn
G
Walls keep breaking
 

C                          Em
Time is like a leaf in the wind
             Dm
Either it's time well spent
    G
or time I've wasted, don't waste it.
