                B  
Have I been sleeping?
  Asus2                            E
I've been so still, afraid of crumblin'
                B  
Have I been careless?
  Asus2                           E
Dismissing all the distant rumblings


Asus2                          
Take me where I am supposed to be
  Gbm
To comprehend the things that I can't see


Chorus:
                      E
        Cos I need to move
                      B
	I need to wake up
                    Gbm
	I need to change 
                       Asus2
	I need to shake up 
                        E
	I need to speak out 
                           B
	Somethin's got to break up 
                   Gbm
	I've been asleep 
                     Asus2  B   Asus2   E
	And I need to wake up now


          B  
And as a child
  Asus2                 E
I danced like it was 1999
               B  
My dreams were wild
   Asus2             
The promise of this new world
           E
Would be mine


Asus2
Now I am throwing off the carelessness of youth
  Gbm
To listen to an inconvenient truth

Chorus:
                      E
        Cos I need to move
                      B
	I need to wake up
                    Gbm
	I need to change 
                       Asus2
	I need to shake up 
                        E
	I need to speak out 
                           B
	Somethin's got to break up 
                   Gbm
	I've been asleep 
                     Asus2  B   Asus2   E
	And I need to wake up now

B
I am not an island
          Asus2
I am not alone
B
I am my intentions
                  Asus2
Trapped here in this flesh and bone

Chorus:
                      E
        Cos I need to move
                      B
	I need to wake up
                    Gbm
	I need to change 
                       Asus2
	I need to shake up 
                        E
	I need to speak out 
                           B
	Somethin's got to break up 
                   Gbm
	I've been asleep 
                     Asus2  B   Asus2   E
	And I need to wake up now

B           Gbm
I want a change
           Asus2            
I need to shake up
           E
I need to speak out
                      B
Oh somethin's got to break up
            Gbm
I've been asleep
             Asus2  B
And I need to wake up now
