[Verse]
                B/E
Have I been sleeping?
  Asus2                            E
I've been so still, afraid of crumblin'
                B/E
Have I been careless?
  Asus2                           E
Dismissing all the distant rumblings

Asus2                          
Take me where I am supposed to be
  F#M
To comprehend the things that I can't see

[Chorus]
                       E
        Cos I need to move
                      B
        I need to wake up
                    F#M
        I need to change 
                       Asus2
        I need to shake up 
                        E
        I need to speak out 
                           B
        Somethin's got to break up 
                   F#M
        I've been asleep 
                     Asus2  B   Asus2   E
        And I need to wake up now

[Verse 2]
          B/E
And as a child
  Asus2                 E
I danced like it was 1999
               B/E
My dreams were wild
   Asus2             
The promise of this new world
           E
Would be mine

Asus2
Now I am throwing off the carelessness of youth
  F#M
To listen to an inconvenient truth

[Chorus]
                       E
        Cos I need to move
                      B
        I need to wake up
                    F#M
        I need to change 
                       Asus2
        I need to shake up 
                        E
        I need to speak out 
                           B
        Somethin's got to break up 
                   F#M
        I've been asleep 
                     Asus2  B   Asus2   E
        And I need to wake up now

[Bridge]
B
I am not an island
          Asus2
I am not alone
B
I am my intentions
                  Asus2
Trapped here in this flesh and bone

[Chorus]
                       E
        Cos I need to move
                      B
        I need to wake up
                    F#M
        I need to change 
                       Asus2
        I need to shake up 
                        E
        I need to speak out 
                           B
        Somethin's got to break up 
                   F#M
        I've been asleep 
                     Asus2  B   Asus2   E
        And I need to wake up now

[Outro]
B           F#M
I want a change
           Asus2            
I need to shake up
           E
I need to speak out
                      B
Oh somethin's got to break up
            F#M
I've been asleep
             Asus2  B
And I need to wake up now

i think if the B/E were changed to a
B- 024400 it'd sound better
