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

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

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