Intro:

C#m5 - E5 - D#5   A5 - C#m5 - B5


C#m                     F#m       G#m           E
I think I know what you mean but watch what you say
 C#m                         F#m      G#m          E
'cause they'll be trying to knock you down in some way
 C#m                         F#m      G#m      E
Sometimes it feels like the world is falling asleep
 C#m                    F#m       G#m       E
How do you wake someone up from inside a dream?

 C#m                        F#m            G#m          E
Your mind would wander and search for its place in the night
 C#m                      F#m         G#m       E  
Your body followed this feeling like following light
 C#m                     F#m       G#m          E
Once that your music was born it followed you 'round
 C#m                     F#m                 G#m          E
And then it gave your activities, meaning and let you be loud

F#m                 G#m 
You're sad but you smile
A               E
It not in your eyes
F#m                  G#m
Your eyeballs won't change
          A                  Open E 
It's the muscles around your eyes

Open E in Chorus

G#m             E
An egg to fertilize
G#m              E
A pulse to stabilize
G#m             E
A body to deodorize
G#m              E
A life to scrutinize
G#m              E
A child to criticize
G#m                  E
Young adults to modernize
G#m               E
Citizens to terrorize
G#m                    E
Generations to desensiti


Solo: C#m - F#m - B - E   I think 3 times


C#m                           F#m         G#m      E 
You're dreams are sweet and obsessed and your overworked
 C#m                 F#m        G#m       E
You're overtaken by visions of being overlooked
  C#m                           F#m
How disappointed would D.(ead) I.(dealistic)
             G#m                               E 
D.(esperate)I.(nventor)P(ioneer)P.(hilosophers)Be
 C#m                      F#m        G#m       E 
to see such power in our hands all wasted on greed
 C#m                  
Am I a prisoner to instincts?
     F#m              
Or do my thoughts just live
               G#m
As free and detached
                 E
As boats to the dock?
C#m                      F#m        G#m               E
Just like when music was born and detached from your heart
C#m                      F#m          G#m       E
Is your free time to free minds or for falling apart?

F#m         G#m
Night after night
A                E
You turn out the light
F#m              G#m         A
You don't fall asleep right away
                Open E
"Are we... are we done?"

G#m            E
A desk to organize
G#m                E
A product to advertise
G#m                E
A market to monopolize
G#m                 E
Movie stars you idolize
G#m               E 
Leaders to scandalize
G#m               E
Enemies to neutralize
G#m              E
No time to apologize
G#m             E
Fury to tranquilize
G#m                E
Weapons to synchronize
G#m             E
Cities to vapor-i

There Ya go. Great song by a great band and hope ya enjoy it.
