|B            |B7sus2
Imagine a man
     |E/B          |Em/B
Not a child of any revolt
                    |B          |B7sus2  |E6/B   |Em6/B   |
But a plain man tied up in life

Imagine the sand
Running out as he struts
Parading and fading, ignoring his wife

Imagine a road
So long looking backwards
You can't see where it really began

Imagine a load
So large and so smooth
That against it a man is an ant

[chorus]
   |A2 |B   |C#m|D#m|E   |   |   |
And you will see the end
E               |B    |E/B B  | B Bmaj7 | Bmaj7 E/B |  B   |    |
You will see the end

Imagine events
That occur everyday
Like a shooting or raping or a simple act of deceit

Imagine a fence
Around you as high as prudential
Cast in shadows, you can't see your feet

Imagine a girl
With long flowing hair
And the body of chalky perfection and truth

Imagine a past
That you wish you had lived
Full of heroes and villians and fools

[repeat chorus]

And you will see the end
You will see the end
And you will see the end
You will see the end, oh yeah

Imagine a man
Not a child of any revolt
But a man of today feeling new

Imagine a soul
So old it it is broken
And you know your invention is you

[repeat chorus]

And you will see the end
You will see the end
You will see the end
You will see the end, oh yeah
