            A
25 years of my life and still
            Bm
Tryin' to to get up that great big hill of
            D                    A2
Hope, for a destination.
            A
I realized quickly when I knew I should
            Bm
That the world was made up of this brotherhood of
            D                    A2
Man, for whatever that means.

[Chorus]    [Same CHORD progression played w/ ELECTRIC FILL 2]
-------

And so I cry sometimes, when I'm lying in bed
just to get all out, what's in my head, then
I, I am feeling, a little peculiar.
And so I wake in the morning, and I step outside
And I take a deep breath, and I get real high, and
I, scream from the top of my lungs, "What's going on?"
