Intro -x2-: E  Dbm  Abm  B
 
Verse 1:
     E
In a far and distant galaxy
  Dbm
Inside my telescope I see
  Abm
a pair of eyes peer back at me
   B
He walks and talks and looks like me
E
Sits around inside his house
     Dbm
From room to room he moves about
Abm
Fills his life with pointless things
    B                        E
And wonders how it all turns out.
            Dbm
Do do do do   do
            Abm
Do do do do   do
     B
It's safe to say that
 
Chorus:
E                      Abm
I don't think you understand!
                  Gbm
There's nowhere left to turn
  B
Walls keep breaking
 
E                           Abm
Time is like a leaf in the wind
             Gbm
Either it's time well spent
   B
Or time I've wasted, don't waste it.
 
Interlude: E Dbm Abm B
 
Verse 2:
  E
Afraid of what the truth might bring
   Dbm
He locks his doors and never leaves
Abm
Desperately searching for signs
    B
Too terrified, to find a thing
  E
He battens all the hatches down
    Dbm
And wonders why he hears no sounds
 Abm
Frantically searching his dreams
   B                      E
He wonders what it's all about
            Dbm
Do do do do   do
            Abm
Do do do do   do
     B
It's safe to say that
 
Chorus:
E                      Abm
I don't think you understand!
                Gbm
There's nowhere left to turn
B
Walls keep breaking
 
E                          Abm
Time is like a leaf in the wind
             Gbm
Either it's time well spent
   B
or time I've wasted.
 
Solo:
E  Ebm  E  A  E
E  Ebm  E  A  E
Ebm E Gb Abm A
Abm B A Ab B
 
Bridge:
E
Here in my mind, losing my friends
Abm
Fall on my face do it again.
    Gbm
You say how, do, you do.
B
  Man, how 'bout you? Man, how 'bout you?
E
  To be free, to be sold
Abm
  To be killed, to be saved
Gbm
  In my head, I'm alone
B
  I'm not dead, I'm ashamed
E
  Just like you, I've been tryin'
Abm
  To escape, in my bones
Gbm
  I feel cold, I give thanks
B
  To the lord, industry
E
  In this street, let me go
Abm
  Let me be, I don't need
Gbm
  To be here, I'm alone
B
  Can't you see? Can't you see?
 
Chorus:
E                      Abm
I don't think you understand!
                  Gbm
There's nowhere left to turn
B
Walls keep breaking
 

E                          Abm
Time is like a leaf in the wind
             Gbm
Either it's time well spent
    B
or time I've wasted, don't waste it.
