[G] [E] [G] [D] [A] [A]  
[G] [E] [G] [D] [A]  
There's a [E]breakdown on the runway, And the timeless flights are gone
I'm a year ahead of my[D]self these [A]days, And I'm locomotive [E]strong
My [E]city spread like cannon fire In a yellow nervous state
I can't cut the ties that [D]bind [A]me To horoscopes and [E]fate
And I [D/A]won't [A]break and I [D/A]won't [A]bend
But [D/A]someday [A]soon we'll [E]sail away
To [B]innocence [B7]and the bitter [E]end[E7]
And I [D/A]won't [A]break and I [D/A]won't [A]bend
And with the [D/A]last [A]breath we [E]ever take
We're gonna [B]get back to the [B7]simple life [A]again[E]
[G] [E] [G] [D] [A] [A]  
[G] [E] [G] [D] [A]  
When we break out of this blindfold I'm gonna take you from this place
Until we're free from this ball and chain I'm still hard behind the eight
My city beats like hammered steel On a shallow cruel rock
If we could walk proud after midnight We'd never have to stop
