Sprawling on the fringes of the city

Bm  Bm  Bm Bm   A   A   A  A
 In geometric order,

Bm  Bm  Bm Bm   A   A   A  A
 An insulated border,

Bm  Bm  Bm Bm    A   A   A  A
 In between the bright lights

         G G  A A  Bm Bm  Bm  Bm
And the far unlit unknown

G G  A A

Growing up it all seems so one-sided

Bm  Bm  Bm Bm  A   A   A  A
 Opinions all provided,

Bm  Bm  Bm Bm  A   A   A  A
 The future predecided,

Bm  Bm  Bm Bm     A   A   A  A
 Detached and subdivided

        G G   A A        Bm Bm   Bm  Bm
In the mass production zone.

  G G     A A   Bm Bm    Bm Bm    G G  A A  Bm Bm  Bm Bm
Nowhere is the dreamer or the    misfit so alone.

Above riff x11 /w lyrics:

Subdivisions -
In the high school halls
In the shopping malls
Conform or be cast out
Subdivision -
In the basement bars
In the backs of cars
Be cool or be cast out
Any escape might help to smooth
The unattractive truth
But the suburbs have no charms to soothe
The restless dreams of youth

Drawn like moths we drift into the city

Bm  Bm  Bm Bm   A   A   A  A
 The timeless old attraction,

Bm  Bm  Bm Bm   A   A   A  A
 Cruising for the action,

Bm  Bm  Bm Bm    A   A   A  A
 Lit up like a firefly

Well some will sell their dreams for small desires

Bm  Bm  Bm Bm  A   A   A  A
 Or lose the race to rats,

Bm  Bm  Bm Bm  A   A   A  A
 Get caught in ticking traps,

Bm  Bm  Bm Bm     A   A   A  A
 And start to dream of somewhere,

    G G          A A    Bm Bm   Bm  Bm
To relax their restless flight

  G G     A A   Bm Bm  Bm Bm        G G    A A      Bm Bm  Bm Bm
Somewhere out of a memory     of lighted street on quiet nights
