[Verse 1]
G(III)                      Em           Bb                Em
 I was working shift on the six o'clock, quiet in the pale dawn.
G(III)                         Em
 Found a bird caught in the machinery - 
        Bb                  Em
 set it free and watched it go . . .
G(III)            Em            Bb            C
Quit the job that very day, and flew into the sky 
     D                    Em      D
just following after this aimless desire, 
    Em    D           Em      D       Em        D
the awful desire, the aimless desire, worthless desire...

[Verse 2]
Now I've found causes and I've found families, 
but nothing ever lasts;
I've known people I'd die for - if only they had asked.
Where I'm from is not my home, and neither's where I'm bound;
Just following after this aimless desire - worthless desire . . .

[Verse 3]
So tonight, beneath the bridge where the fires burn,
God . . . take the freedom back, deliver me
from the aimless desire, the worthless desire . . .
And chimera she waits, and I have still got this hole in me;
still got this hole inside of me . . .
