G                  C                   G        C G
Things are getting just a-too cosy for me,
               C                  G             C G
I'm not seeing people as they see me,
             C                G                 C G G/F# Em
Gonna break away and gain control,
                                  D             G
You free your mind, you free your soul.

          C                       G    C G
I was the type who knocked at old men      (history's easy)
                C                    G     C   G
Who together at tables sit and drink beer (somewhere is really)
                C                G              C G G/F# Em
Then I saw that I was really the same,
                                      D
So this link's breaking away from the chain.

              G                      Am
Away from the numbers,
              C
Away from the numbers
                   D
Is where I'm gonna be.
              G                      Am
Away from the numbers,
              C                      D
Away from the numbers
              G
Is where I am free

G    C    D
Ooh, ooh, ooh...

              G                      Am
Away from the numbers (away from the numbers)
              C                D
Away from the numbers (ooh-ooh-ooh)
                   G                 Am
Is where I'm gonna be.

                                  G               C G F# F
I was sick and tired of my little niche,
                                        D
I'm gonna break away and find what life is.

And all those fools I thought were my friends (coasting is easy)
               C                     G        C G
They now stare at me and don't see a thing (rea-lity's so hard)
                   C                      G     C  G G/F# Em
'Til their life is over and they start to moan,
                                            D
How they've never had the chance to make it good.

              G                      Am
Away from the numbers,
              C
Away from the numbers
                   D
Is where I'm gonna be,
