Verse 1
E                         G                        Asus
Take the knowledge away, suck the breath from the clay
E                              G                           Asus
Break the bone to the ground, leave the soul where it's found
Asus (strike the chord twice then back to E)
Lead the soul where it's bound

E                            G                    Asus
Through the passage of time, one day soon to arrive

E                         G                      Asus
Looking out from inside, when you see what you find
E                          G                   Asus
Out of sight out of mind, meet the seed of mankind
Asus
Meet the seed of mankind

CHORUS

Break
Cm#         G#         A                 E
Higher and Higher, spiralling through the sky
Cm#           G#            A              E
Vertially rising through a white wall of space
Cm#             G#           A              E
It's Further and further, pushing on through the clouds
Cm#           G#      A            E
Perfect response to falling from grace

             A                E
No need to look for you are found,
           A                 E
Need to speak I hear the sound
           A
On the street
 E
Oooooooooooooh

E
fly

And it ends on E
