Verse 1 - 1st half same as Intro
[ch]D[/ch]
Been fighting things that I can't see, yeah
Like voices coming from the inside of me, yeah
[ch]G[/ch]
Like doing things I find hard to believe in
Am I ghost or am I dreaming?
[ch]Bm[/ch]
I've been awake for an hour or so
[ch]Gsus2[/ch]
Checking for a pulse but I just don't know
[ch]Bm[/ch]
Am I man if I feel like ghost?
[ch]Gsus2[/ch]
The stranger in the mirror is wearing my clothes

Chorus
[ch]D[/ch]
No I'm not alright
[ch]A[/ch]
I know that I'm not right
[ch]Bm[/ch]
The steering wheel don't mean you can drive
[ch]Gsus2[/ch]
A warm body doesn't mean I'm alive
No I'm not alright
I know that I'm not right
Feel like I travel but I never arrive
I want to thrive, not just survive

Interlude - Same as Intro

Verse 2 - 1st half same as Intro
I come alive when I hear you singing
But lately I haven't been hearing a thing, yeah
I get the feeling that I'm between 
A machine and a man who only looks like me
I try and hide it, not let it show
But deep down inside me I just don't know
Am I man if I feel like a hoax?
The stranger in the mirror is wearing my clothes

Chorus

Bridge
[ch]Esus2[/ch]      [ch]Bm[/ch]*             [ch]Asus2[/ch]
I'm always close and never enough
I get so down, but I won't give up
I get so down, but I won't give up
I get so down, but I won't give up

Verse 3 - 1st half same as Intro
Been fighting things that I can't see, yeah
Like voices coming from the inside of me, yeah
Like doing things I find hard to believe in
Am I myself or am I dreaming?
[ch]Bm[/ch]      [ch]Gsus2[/ch]   [ch]Bm[/ch]      [ch]Gsus2[/ch] 
Thrive, thrive, thrive, thrive

Chorus

Accurate tab, but its nearly impossible for me to stretch on the A and Gsus2. Jon is in the habit of writing difficult songs. They sound amazing, but you have to be pretty good to play them
