 Times when I was tired and lost my way

Looking at life and strangely for the first time

VERSE 1 
********
    D               C               Bm             Bb
The rock on which I stand is slowly sinking in the sand
          G            A                D
The sheer realities of life are rushing by
     D              C                Em          G        Bb     
I am looking out at life and I don't know what's wrong or right
            G            A                  D
And I can't even see the bright side of the moon

CHORUS

D                      A
I stopped a man in the street today
      C                     Em
And I asked him "Sir, is it night or day
        F              Em    Bm
He just stared in disbelief
D                    A
I asked again but he walked away
         C                     
He said "Don't you know
        Em                      F             Em
I said "Can't you say? Is there something inbetween
      F                  Em
Is it something I've not seen
       F                 C             D
Did it change so fast or was it just a dream

VERSE 2
********
D             C                   Bm           Bb 
Time and time again I've tried to recreate the past few days
G            A                  D
Evaluate the constants from the haze
D                F                     G
But every time I think I'm right, they say I'm wrong
      Bb               G
"This day is night and night is day 
     D
It's there in black and white"


-----------------------
CHORUS
*******
D                  A
Night is light and dark is day
     C                 Em
If I disagree they say I'm insane
        F              G
And the treatment will begin
D                 A
If I say that the day is light
          C                    Em
They just point my eyes to the blinding night, saying
F                 Em          F          Em
"We can't set you free if you always disagree,
       F                 C                 D
So the State is going to pay your doctor's fee"

They put me out in the pouring rain
     C                 Em
To enjoy the sun or to feel the pain
       F                Em
Of the nightmare life's become
  D                  A
I asked a man in the street today
          C                Em
Or was it yesterday or the day before
          F                  Em
"Is there something I've not seen
         F             Em
Is there something inbetween

The rock on which I stand is now beneath the ever-flowing sand
    G          A                D
The sheer realities are here to stay
    D              C              G                     Bb 
I'm looking out at life and now I know what's wrong and right
              Bm       G        A        G         D

D                  A
I saw a man in the street today
    C                  Em
Ask another man "Is it night or day
        F              Em     G
He just stared in disbelief
D                          A
He said "Friend, it's your lucky day
      C                    Em
I'm a party man, won't you step this way
         F                    Em
I've got something you've not seen
      F               Em
Now I know it's not a dream

It just came so fast, that something inbetween

I awoke   to a feeling, it was cold by my side
        C#m           A        E         F#m         B

To the sounds of the sidewalks    and the silence   of my mind

Ahhhhhhhhhhh  Ahhhhhhhhh  Ahhhhhh ahhh  Ahhhhhh

I walked out in the morning, down a street with no name
     C#m              A        E                     
To a club called "The Loser",

like a dog that's gone lame

Took the club elevator to the floor with a view

I took out life subscription

I stepped out on the guard rail, saw the crowds slowly part 
        D#m             B            F#                 
Heard a voice shouting "Don't jump,

Felt the quick push, felt the air rush
