I have a neighbor, he is my saviour

I know a business man, he scrapped his business plan

They are all archetypes, people that I might like to be
        Bm                       E
Just like in a completely different way

A              C#m
and we all...
       Bm                      E
We're coming out of our caves, Coming out of our caves
A              C#m

We're coming out of our caves, Coming out of our caves

  A  C#m
By smiling, by winking
         Bm                      E
By saying you know it's good for us to talk, yeah it's good to talk.

     A          C#m
I know a father, I loved his daughter
        Bm         E
I told him never would I forsake her
         A                 C#m
But I got home too late, from one of my escapades
         Bm                E
No woman to face, just a note that said baby I've sailed away
         A                C#m
................................Right out of my cave
         Bm                E
Caught a swell, caught a wave To another inspiring place

My friend the bureaucrat, he just accepts all that
         Bm                   E

For my friend the taxman, he is my father and he
        Bm                               E
Tallies numbers all day, yes he knows his numbers you could say!
        A                  C#m
He taxes income! I asked him how come?
           Bm                                    E
"You know I work hard for every penny don't you think I deserve it all?"
         A                                C#m
"Oh the law, the law, the law son there are flaws in the law
                Bm                                 E

      A                               C#m
While I was laying in her bed with her chest to my head...
         Bm                                E
Were our intentions misread? So I just said it, I said, "baby,

I'm a nobody I aint got no money! 
          Bm                                    E
Just this ambition to tell the people we are equal so c'mon baby come out of your cave"
A            C#m
