Verse:
Oh here you are, there's nothing left to say 
B5-A5-G5		    A5
	  You're not supposed to be that way 
Did they push you out? did they throw you away? 

Bridge:
B5-A5
G5	   A5
Touch me now and I don't care 
G5	   A5
When you take me I'm not there 
G5	   A5
Almost human, but I'll never be the same

Chorus:
G5/A5-A5-A5 D5-D5-D5-C#5-B5-A5-A5
Long way down,
 G5			 A5
I don't think I'll make it on my own 
Long way down, I don't want to live in here alone 
Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own

(verse)
I never put you down, I never pushed you away 
You're not supposed to be that way 
And anything you want, there's nothing I could say 

(bridge)
Is there anything to feel? 
Is it pain that makes you real? 
Cut me off before it kills me

(chorus)
Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own 
Long way down, I don't want to live in here alone 
Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own

(verse)
I never put you down, I never pushed you away 

(bridge)
Take another piece of me 
Give my mind a new disease 
And the black and white world never fades to gray

(chorus)
Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own 
Long way down, I don't want to live in here alone 
Long way down, I don't think I'll make it on my own

Look at all the washed out Hippie dreams

(Riff 1)
And it's fallin' all around us 
Is this some kind of joke they're trying to pull on us? 
Fallin' all around us 
I'll turn my head off for a while

(Verse)
The tabloid generation's lost 
Choking on it's fear 
Used to be that's all we had to fear 

And conscience keeps us quiet while the crooked love to speak 
There's knowledge wrapped in blankets on the street. 

A visionary coward says that anger can be power 
As long as there's a victim on TV

(Riff 1)
And it's fallin' all around us 
Is this some kind of joke they're trying to pull on us? 
Fallin' all around us 
I'll turn my head off for a while

 And my dirty dreams all come alive on my TV

E5
When I was three feet tall 
I loved 'em all 
And lived life for myself 
Fallin' down for laughs 
Your photograph 
Some puppets made of felt

E5	   B5 	  	C#5 	        F#5
Watching life in Oz Thanksgiving eve on Grandma's old TV 
Dancing roundabout I'd twist and shout for everyone to see

(Riff 1)
Impersonality 
It's leanin' hard on me

E5
Momma's in a shop 
Watching little sister by myself 
Robbed a wishing pond 
In a fleeting bond 
Vowed to share the wealth

E5		    B5
Scooping up the coins 
  C#5			 F#5
A warning shot from some authority 
Doesn't matter now but I'll shout out loud for everyone to see

(solo)

F#5
Never got to know you

Did you ever wonder why?
Now it's nice to know ya
 A5-G#5-F#5-E5
E5	  B5			 F#5
And I'm glad you're doing fine

Think of all the time lost 
Was it really lost at all? 
Now I'm so proud of ya 
B5			   A5
I'd love to tell you all I've seen
B5			A5 
Listen hard to your realities

It's leanin' hard on me

Lyrics:

(Verse) 
And even though the moment passed me by, 
        I still can't turn away.
I saw the dreams you never thought you'd lose,
        Tossed along the way.
Letters that you never meant to send,
        Lost and thrown away.
 
(chorus)
Now we're grown up orphans, that never knew their names.
        We don't belong to no one, that's a shame.
You could hide beside me, maybe for a while.
        And I won't tell no one your name, no I won't tell 'em your name.
 
(verse)
Scars are souveneers you never lose,
        The past is never far.
Did you lose yourself somewhere out there?
        Did you get to be a star?
Don't it make you sad to know that life,
        Is more than who we are.
 
(chorus)
You grew up way too fast, and now there's nothing to believe.
        And re-runs all become our history.
A tired song keeps playing on a tired radio.
        And I won't tell no one your name, no I won't tell 'em your name.
 
(Verse)
I think about you all the time
        but I don't need the same.
If it's lonely where you are come back down,
        and I won't tell no one your name.

And it's not like me to feel so important
         E5             C5                D5
And it's not like me to go and wreck your day
      E5                C5           D5
And I never thought I'd see it so exploited

Ah but I know that somethin' bad has gotta change
         B5                  C5	            D5
Oh yes I know that somethin' bad has gotta change

(verse)
Well I see 'em working round the block till six a.m. 
The thermometer's at minus five degrees 
And I'm wondering where all that hard earned money goes 
To her head or towards a shred of dignity 

(chorus)
And it's not like me to feel so important 
And it's not like me to go and wreck your day 
And I never thought I'd see it so exploited 
Ah but I know that somethin' bad has gotta change 
Oh yes I know that somethin' bad has gotta change 
Go!

Verse: Eb5-F#5-B5-Eb5-Db5

Bridge: E5-F#5-G#5

Chorus: Intro

(intro)
(verse)
Could you talk to me
Honestly
Cuz I never heard a word you said now
And I ain't just being mean

(bridge)
Cuz all we are is what we're told
And most of that's been lies
It's like a made for TV movie
And I just blew my lines

(chorus)
Someday you never made it
and maybe you never will
Hey, you never made it
It ain't that unusual

(verse)
Now I feel unknown
And it's safe that way
Are you too bored to care or too dumb to be scared
What's that supposed to mean

(bridge)
I'm burnt out on some empty reasons
And other wastes of time
Something that I wish I'd said
But I don't think it rhymed 

(chorus)
Someday you never made it
and maybe you never will
Hey, you never made it
It ain't that unusual

(verse)
See I'd love to be you
Least then I'd see you
Sorry I put them words in your mouth
but you wouldn't talk to me

(Solo over verse chords in traditional Johnny Rzeznik style)

(bridge 2 -- F#5-G#5-E5)
Everything I want I haven't got
Sick of everything I'm not
Put my heavy coat on for a while
It's freezing in the corner of my mind

(chorus)
Someday you never made it
and maybe you never will
Hey, you never made it
Now ain't that unusual

Lyrics:

(Verse)
I'm a fortunate son, of a fortunate son,
	Living large on the wrong side of town.
Too many friends and the fun never ends,
	Drinkin' and hangin' around.
I wanna' own the world, I wanna' swallow it whole.
	At least I could kick it all down.
	I wanna' kick it all down.

(chorus)
Eyes wide open, I can't see.
Eyes wide open, what you mean.
Eyes wide open, I can't seem to be.

(berse)
I don't take the bus, and I never walked too far,
	The furthest I got was my own backyard.
A fist full of cash that somebody else earned,
	They sent me some more when it all got burned.
I wanna' take control, I wanna' make it all mine.
	At least I could kick it all down.
	I wanna' kick it all down.

(chorus)
Eyes wide open, I can't see.
Eyes wide open, what you mean.
Eyes wide open, I can't seem to be

(Riff 1)
Let me tell you 'bout a girl I know 
I drag her around wherever I go 
This little woman drives me insane 
She's tied to my ankle with a ball and chain 

(Riff 1)
For sixteen years she's been hangin' around 
Try'n' to bury me in a hole in the ground 
Well I think it's time that I even the score 
There's only room for one in this cage of yours

(Riff 1)
Don't save me when I startin' to drown 
Don't use me when you don't want me around 
Just be my slave girl 'cause that's all I need 
So take a little step back to the stone age with me. Go!

(solo 1)

(Riff 1)
Well I hear a strange noise as I lie in my bed 
I feel a lotta water drippin' on my head 
I look around tried to see through my hair 
You left me alone, but do you think I care? 

(Riff 1)
'Cause you moved me when I was takin' my time 
You abused me when I'm outta line 
You tried to warn me of the danger sign 
So watch out! Go!

(solo 2)

(Riff 1)
Well, you got me in the bondage of another age 
You drive me to distraction in a primitive way 
I can't control my instincts when I hear her say 
"Just come around and see me if you lose your way"

(Riff 1)
So join my chain gang play along with me 
I'll be your caveman, it's basic as can be 
I'm not insane, man, I'm just outta my dream 

End on E5
