|A                |E7sus4    E7   |A              |Dv Dv Dv->E E  
   I see myself on TV, I'm a faker,  a paper clown
    |A                               |E7sus4   E7   
It's clear to all my friends that I habitually lie, 
      |A                |Dv Dv Dv->E E
I just bring them down
       |D                  |E7sus4  E7
I claim proneness to exaggeration
       |D                   |E7sus4  E7
But the truth lies in my frustration
   |D                              |E7sus4    E7 |
The children of the night, they all pass me by
       |D                         |E7sus4          | E7      
Have to dress myself in brandy, in sleep I'll hide
           |E7sus4       |E7   
But however much I booze
                  |A    D/A   |A              D/A   |A    D/A   |A   D/A
There ain't no way out            There ain't no way out
       |E7sus4                 |E7                   |A   D/A  |A   D/A
I don't care what you say, boy     There ain't no way out 

[repeat intro]

I lose so many nights of sleep worrying about my responsibility
Are the problems that screw me up really down to him or me?
My ego will just confuse me, some day it's going to up and use me
Dish me out another tailor-made compliment
Tell me about some destiny I can't prevent
And however much I squirm
There ain't no way out, there ain't no way out
I don't care what you say, boy, there ain't no way out

Won't somebody tell me how to get out of this place?

[bridge]
|Cmaj7                    |                   |Em     |       |
     And the night comes down like a cell door closing
|Cmaj7                 |                         |Em       |       |
     Suddenly I realize that I'm writing now more honestly
|D                          |                              |E7sus4 |E7 |
  While sitting here all alone with a bottle and my head up floating
|D                              |                |E7sus4      |E7
 Far away from the phone and the conscience going on at me and on at me 
           |E7sus4            |E7
But I don't care what you say
                  |A      D/A  |A             D/A   |A   D/A |A   |D/A |
There ain't no way out            There ain't no way out

Now the walls are all clawed and scratched, like by some soul insane
In the morning I hung-overly detach myself, I'll take no blame
I just can't face my failure, I'm nothing but a well-fucked sailor
You at home can easily decide what's right
By glancing very briefly at the songs I write
But it don't help me that you know
There still ain't no way out, won't somebody tell me?
I don't care what you say, boy, there ain't no way out

There ain't no way out, there ain't no way out, there ain't no way out
Give me the key, give me the key, now, give me the key, now, 
Give me the key, oh, there ain't now way out of here

Oh, tell me, tell me, there ain't no way out, there ain't no way out
There ain't no way out
There ain't no way out, there ain't no way out
There ain't no way out, there ain't no way out

[repeat main pattern]

I drive like a priest and then I'm shooting lights
I'm burning tyres with some guy whose hair is turning white
I know the girls that I pass, they just ain't impressed
I'm too old to give up, but too young to rest

I've got that run-to-a-club, over-dubbed 
Feeling social when the world is sleeping
The plot starts to thicken, then I sicken and 
I feel like I'm cemented down
I'm so juiced that the whorey lady's 
Sad sad story has me quietly weeping
But here comes the dawning, 
Here comes the yawning demented clown

(I'm dreaming) but I know it's all hot air
(I'm dreaming) I'll get back to that rocking chair
(I'm dreaming) of the day when I can share the wealth
(I'm dreaming) dreaming of the day I can control myself
The day I can control myself
Hey, hey... the day I can control myself

That occur everyday
Like a shooting or raping or a simple act of deceit

Imagine a fence
Around you as high as prudential
Cast in shadows, you can't see your feet

Imagine a girl
With long flowing hair
And the body of chalky perfection and truth

Imagine a past
That you wish you had lived
Full of heroes and villains and fools

Imagine a man
Not a child of any revolt
But a man of today feeling new

Imagine a soul
So old it is broken
And you know your invention is you

And you will see the end
You will see the end
You will see the end
You will see the end, oh yeah

Friday night, I'm on my way home

They oughta make work a crime
                 G     F
I'm home for the weekend
          D [riff]
I'm gonna make the most of my time
          G                    F               D [riff]
There's a rock-and-roll singer on the television
       G                   F              D [riff]
Giving up his music, gonna take up religion

Deserted rock and roll
To try to save his soul

Saturday night, gotta gig with the band
Playing the electric guitar
Someday I'm gonna make it
Gonna be a super-duper-star
Get a flashy car
And a house for my mum
The big break better happen soon
'Cause I'm pushing twenty-one

G
Just like Cinderella
                       Eb             C
When she just couldn't go to the ball
               G
A voice said, "I'm your fairy manager
         Eb       C
You shall play at Carnegie Hall."
G             Eb      C
 Gotta give up my day job
G       Eb        C
 To become a heartthrob
G   Eb      C     G Eb          D D D D D D D
 I may go far if I smash my guitar

Away for the weekend
I've gotta play some one-night stands
Six for the tax man, and one for the band
Back in the studio to make our latest number one
Take two-hundred-and-seventy-six
You know, this used to be fun

[Bass solo]

Monday morning, I just got home
Six and the birds are singing
I need a drink and my clothes are wet
Ooh, and my ears are still ringing
There's a rock and roll singer boppin' on the TV
He used to be a preacher, but now he sings in a major key

Amended his decision to the new religion

Deserted   Rock and roll to try to save his soul

=====================================================================
Note from Jeremy D. (fearofscissors@aol.com): (7-22-2002)
If you happen to have (or want to get) a ukelele, the tuning is
GCEA, and the fingerings are:

        G C E A
D       3 3 3 0
Dsus4   0 2 3 0
G       0 2 3 2
A       2 1 0 0
Em      0 4 0 2
B7      2 3 2 2
Em7     0 2 0 2
A7      0 1 0 0
F#m     2 1 2 0
Bbdim   0 1 0 1
Bm      x 2 2 2 (or, if you can reach, 4 2 2 2)
A7sus4  0 2 0 0

If anyone's got one on hand...feel free to e-mail me with corrections.
======================================================================

Note from: John (eliyahu5733@gmail.com) (05-07-2006)
Adjusted chord shapes for Ukelele

        G C E A

G       0 2 3 2
A       2 1 0 0

Also, if you play the above chord forms on a guitar capoed at the 
5th fret & ignore the E and A strings it should sound in the same key 
as a ukulele.

 Some people seem so obsessed with the morning
      |G                          |A
Get up early just to watch the sun rise
|G                                      |A
   Some people like it more when there's fire in the sky
|G                        |A
 Worship the sun when it's high
|Em                         |B7
    Some people go for those sultry evenings
       |Em               B7           |Em
Sipping cocktails in the blue, red and grey
   |Em7         |A7           |D      Dsus4 D...
But I like every minute of the day

|G           |F#m       |G                    |F#m
 I like every second, so long as you are on my mind
|G                     |Bbdim
   Every moment has its special charm
        |Bm                               |A7sus4   |A7
It's all right when you're around, rain or shine

I know a crowd who only live after midnight
Their faces always seem so pale
And then there's friends of mine who must have sunlight
They say a suntan never fails
I know a man who works the night shift
He's lucky to get a job and some pay
And I like every minute of the day

I dig every second, I can laugh in the snow and rain
I get a buzz from being cold and wet
The pleasure seems to balance out the pain

And so you see that I'm completely crazy
I even shun the south of France
The people on the hill, they say I'm lazy
But when they sleep, I sing and dance
Some people have to have the sultry evenings

capo on 3

F     Gm     Eb      Bb  Gm7   F

F                Gm
  I'm feelin' so good right now
          Eb                    Bb    Gm7         F
There's a handsome boy tells me how I changed his past
             Gm
He buys me a brandy
Eb                    Bb          Gm7      F
  Or could it be he's really just after my ass?
             Gm
He likes the clothes I wear
Eb                   Bb     Gm7      F
  He says he likes a man to dress in season
           Gm               Eb                Bb
But no one else ever stares, he's being so kind
Gm7           C-->
What's the reason?

[chorus]

C         G             Am    F
 How many friends have I really got?
                          G
 You can count 'em on one hand
C         G              Am     F        G
 How many friends have I really got?
C         G              Am     F   
 How many friends have I really got?
     Bb   F        Bb   F           Bb   F/A Gm Gm7 C
That love me, that want me, that'll take me  as I   am?

Suddenly it's a silver screen
And a face so beautiful that I have to cry out
Everybody hears me
Well, I look like a fool, now, if I try and I shy out
She knows all of my friends
But it's nice to find a woman who'll stay on late
But now I think I've reached the end
I wonder in the dead of night, how do I rate? 

[repeat chorus]


Cm                 Cm/Bb
   It's all like a dream you know
            Bb                    F
When you're still up early in the morning
Gm                    F                   Eb
    And you all sit together to watch the sun come through
Cm                 Cm/Bb
  But things don't look so good
               Ab
When you could use a bit of warning
Fm                                    C/G                   G
  Then you know that no one will ever speak the truth about you.

[repeat chorus]

When I first signed the contract, it was more than a handshake then
I know it still is, but there's a plain fact
We talk so much shit behind each other's backs, I get the willies
People know nothing about their own soft guts
So how come they can sum us up
Without suffering all the hype we've known
How come they bum us up

[repeat chorus]

Ain't it funny how they're all Cleopatra
As you gaze into their past
When you find out about their birth sign
You realize there was no need to have asked
All the history of a soul in torment
Ingrained in a hand or face
Ain't it funny how they all fire the pistol
At the wrong end of the race

Going round and round

There's a man going through your dustbin
Only this time he's looking for food
There's a tear in his eye you don't know him
Oh, but you know what he's going through
Is it weird that you can't seem to help him
Feeling sick as he staggers away
Is it weird that you hate a stranger
Can a detail correct your dismay
