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

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