  So stand in line while they
    F
ink numbers in your head
       Dm     F
you're now a slave until

Bridge:
Bb                          C
  And I know you hear their voices
               Bb
(calling from above)
                         C
And I know they may seem real
                  Bb
(these signals of love)
But our life's made up of
C                       Bb
choices (some without appeal)
              G/B          C
They took for granted your soul
         A/C#         Dm---
and it's ours now to steal
As your nightmare comes to life!!


(Repeat Chorus 2)
