[C]Loosesn the wire your [F]time has expired the [G]only word left is "goodbye,"

and in my new dream the light's [F]shigning on me
(skip the G)
little needles of sodium unstitch the seems of the,

C F G F G (finish the whole intro riff with the G)
sky,


[C]Hold your head higher the [F]heavenly choir is [G]settling in for the night,
and where I had friends I am [F]left with loose ends
four hours of vision exchanged for four hours of [G]fright,

but enough of "the [C]fight" and enough "you and [F]I"

Em F(full)
and enough of "prevail" or "walkin' the line,"

while the angles stand [C]by I get high as a [F]kite

Em F(full)
I'm too tired to smile or know that I'm right,

am I [G]right?

(Play through the intro/verse here with the G and then play segway)

F(full) G C Am
and all our best laid plans... well they crumbled in our hands,

our flags fell where they'd [G]fanned,

F(full) G C Am
you held in your breath... long after projections of death,

you sat in the waiting room rasping and gasped on dry [G]land,

(play the intro/verse with this next part)
but the [C]audience is tired we've [F]had enough fire

we're [G]entering the age now of ice,

and I feeling older pull [F]off to the shoulder
and I wonder with my head in my hands should I call my [G]wife,
(play the chorus with this next part)
and say enough "you and [C]I" and enough of "the [F]fight,"

Em F(full)
and enough of "prevail" and "walkin the line,"

while the angles stand [C]by I get high as a [F]kite,

Em F(full)
I'm too tired to smile or know that I'm right,

Enough "you and [C]I" and enough of "the [F]fight,"

Em F(full)
and enough of "prevail" or "walkin the line,"

when the spacecraft came [C]down I was left on the [F]ground,

Em F(full)
will you keep me around, will you help me survive,

after my [G]time?

(end with the segway)
