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

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

Db                          Fm
Time is like a leaf in the wind
             Ebm
Either it's time well spent
    Ab
or time I've wasted, don't waste it.
