There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
One, Two, Three, Four
   G   D   Am   Em   X3 
   G   D   Am
 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
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     B
Is nowhere I want to go
C              Am           Em               D
Ay, This business of how long we try to stay alive
C           Am                Em                
Why to be here you first got to die
So I gave it a try
      C                G               Am
And what do you know time was so long ago
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
C           Am         
I lied to the greatest thieves
       Em             D
About anything and everything
C        Am         Em           
I'm a figure of forgotten speech
I'm out of reach
C                G    
I can't play it safe
But I might just in case
C                    G    
I'm disguised as a reaching hand    
I'm a working man
C                        G
I don't understand why clock out
Comes so slow every time
C                  G             Am
That's one line I stay right behind
C                  G             Am   B
That's one line I stay right behind.
 G   D   Am   Em   X3 
 G   D   Am   B    G
