Verse 1:

	C7
	In a Shanghai noodle factory
	Place where I once used to be
	G7
	Nowhere doing nothing
	C7
	People there were made of steel
	Tiny cogs in one big wheel
	 G7
	Turning never learning

Bridge 1:

	Bb
	Had to make a break
	 C                              F                 A
	Soon I had to wake up feeling stronger, feeling stronger
	      Bb         Dm/A   Gm  Bbmaj7/F
	On my island of dreams
	       Edim7 A7        Dm
	With impo...   ssible schemes

	(acoustic guitar w/flute and organ):

	(Dm)       Gm       C
	  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /

	[repeat intro]

Verse 2:

	In a Shanghai noodle factory
	Place where I once used to be
	Nowhere doing nothing
	Villages of plastic men
	Packed like roosters in a pen
	Crowing, never knowing

Bridge 2:

	Bb
	Had to make a break
	 C                           F
	Knew I couldn't fake it any longer

	Everything at stake
	Soon I had to wake up feeling stronger, feeling stronger
	On my island of dreams
	With impossible schemes

[repeat intro]

Break:

	C7
	In a Shanghai noodle factory - place where I once used to be
	G7
	Nowhere doing nothing (nowhere doing nothing)
	C7
	Nowhere doing nothing (nowhere doing nothing)
	G7
	Nowhere doing nothing (nowhere doing nothing)
	C7
	Nowhere doing nothing (nowhere doing nothing)
	G7
	Nowhere...

	(instrumental solos over same chord progression):

	C7                G7                [6X]
	/ / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /
