 Cage The Elephant
Tom: C

Intro: C  Am  Em  G (2x)

     C
In a far and distant galaxy
     Am
Inside my telescope I see
 Em
A pair of eyes look back at me
    G
He walks and talks and looks like me
C
Sits around inside his house
     Am
From room to room he moves about
Em
Fills his life with pointless things
   G                        C
and wonders how it all turns out.
Am
do do do do do
Em
do do do do do
G
Safe to say that
C                        Em
I don't think you understand!
               Dm
There's nowhere left to turn
G
Walls keep breaking

C                          Em
Time is like a leaf in the wind
             Dm
Either it's time worth spent
   G
or time I've wasted.
Don't waste it.

C Am Em G
  C
Afraid of what the truth might bring
     Am
He locks his doors and never leaves
   Em
Desperately searching for signs
    G
to terrify, to find a thing
  C
He battens all the hatches down
    Am
and wonders why he hears no sound
 Em
Frantically searching his dreams
    G                    C
he wonders what it's all about
Am
do do do do do
Em
do do do do do
G
Safe to say that

C                        Em
I don't think you understand!
               Dm
There's nowhere left to turn
G
Walls keep breaking

C                          Em
Time is like a leaf in the wind
             Dm
Either it's time worth spent
   G
or time I've wasted.

Solo: C Bm C F C
     (Bm C D Em F)
     (Em G F E G)

C
Clearing my mind,
losing my friends
Em
Follow my fears
do it again.
        Dm
You say how, do, you do.

G
Man, how 'bout you?
Man, how 'bout you?
C
To be free
To be son
Em
To be killed
To be saved
Dm
In my head, I'm alone
G
I'm un-dead, I'm ashamed
C
Just like you, I've been tryin'
      Em
To be scared
                    Dm
In my bones, I feel cold.
                   G
I give this to the lord in the sea
        C
In this street
       Em
Let me go
                  Dm
Let me be, I don't need
To be here, I'm alone
          G
Can't you see? Can't you see?

C                        Em
I don't think you understand!
               Dm
There's nowhere left to turn
G
Walls keep breaking

C                          Em
Time is like a leaf in the wind
             Dm
Either it's time worth spent
   G
or time I've wasted.
Don't waste it.
