Verse 2 (Played as above):

E  F#m   G  D           Csus2
No-where is there to be found
G            D                     Csus2  G5  Csus2  G5
Among those afraid of losing their ground
E    F#m  G    D             Csus2
Mean grey town known for its sound
G         D               Csus2  G5  Csus2  G5
In places small places un-bound

Break:

   E                                                      (hold)     (hold)

Verse 3 (Played as the first):
         
E   F#m  G       D         Csus2
Now the  squares of moving storms
G             D                   Csus2  G5  Csus2  G5
Some laughing some just shapeless forms
E   F#m  G      D             Csus2
Sidewalk scenes and black limousines
G           D              Csus2  G5  Csus2  G5
Some living some standing alone

Repeat Verse 1 (screaming lyrics):

E     F#m   G    D                  Csus2
Eight miles high and when you touch down
G                     D             Csus2  G5  Csus2  G5
You'll find that it's stranger than known
E     F#m    G      D                     Csus2
Signs in the street that say where you're going
G             D                Csus2  G5  Csus2  G5
Are somewhere just being their own
