   INTRO
   G   D   Am   Em   X3 
   G   D   Am
VERSE
 G        D          Am   Em
And then the past recedes
G          D        Am   Em
And I won't be involved
G          D       Am   Em
The effort to be free
G            D          Am
Seems pointless from above
VERSE
G           D          Am   Em
You're looking down at me
G        D        Am   Em
I'd rather stay below
G                D          Am   Em
Than have you staring up at me
G        D           Am     B7
Is nowhere I want to go
CHORUS
C          D#dim7        Em               D
Ay, This business of how long we try to stay alive
C       D#dim7           Em                
Why to be here you first got to die
        D   
So I gave it a try
      C                G               Am B7
And what do you know time was so long ago

VERSE
G          D        Am   Em
And things come back you see
G          D        Am   Em
To where they don't belong
G          D        Am   Em
And every drop of sea 
G          D      Am     B
Is the whole ocean

CHORUS
C           D#dim7         
I lied to the greatest thieves
       Em             D
About anything and everything
C      D#dim7         Em           
I'm a figure of forgotten speech
     D
I'm out of reach
C                G    
I can't play it safe
              Am         B7
But I might just in case

Solo (see other tab)

CHORUS
C       D#dim7     Em   
I'm disguised as a reaching hand    
        D
I'm a working man
C             D#dim7
I don't understand why clock out
Em            D
Comes so slow every time
       C          G             Am
That's one line I stay right behind
       C          G             Am   B7
That's one line I stay right behind.

 G   D   Am   Em   X3 
 G   D   Am   B7   G

=D  Enjoy

EM is actually E in the verse
and the chorus is very wrong

Em is CORRECT, but the B is B7
The chorus is wrong. Its, I think:

C B7 Em D... etc, etc
