Bb ? C ? Bb ? C ? Bb
C ? Bb ? C ? Bb (3x)
[D/C]Up in the sterilized [C]room
Where they [Am7]let you be lazy
[F7]Know-ing your attitudes are wro[C]ng
And you gotta [Am7]change, and it?s not easy
[F7]Drag-ons shining with all values [G]known
[F7]Daz-zling you, keeping you from yo[G]ur ow[F]n[G] [C]
[F7]Where is the lion in you to de-[C]fy him
When you?re this [Am7]weak and this spacey?
So [D/C]what are you gonna do about it
[C]You can?t live [Am7]life and you can?t leave it
Ad-[F7]vice and religion you can?t ta[C]ke it
You can?t [Am7]seem to believe it
The [F7]pea-cock is afraid to pa-[G]rade
You?re [F7]un-der the thumb of a ma[G]id[F] [G] [C]
You [F7]real-ly can?t give love in this con-[C]di-tion
Still you [Am7]know how you need it
Then open and[C] close[G7/B] you
Then they talk like they know[Am7] you
They don?t know[G] you
They?re friends and they?re[C] foes [G7/B]too, trouble child,
[G/D] Brea-king like the [Dsus4]waves at Malibu[G]
Bb ? C ? Bb ? C ? Bb
C ? Bb ? C ? Bb (3x)
So [D/C]why does it come as such a shock
[C] To know you really [Am7]have no one?
[F7]On-ly a river of changing [C]fa-ces
[Am7] Looking for an ocean
They [F7]tric-kle through your leaky [G]plans
Another [F7]dream over the dam[G] [F] [G]
[C]And you?re [F7]ly-ing in some room
Feeling like your [C]right to be [Am7]hu-man
Is going over [G]too
But some are gonna[C] knoc[G7/B]k you
And some?ll try and[Am7] clock you
[G] You know it?s really hard
To[C] talk sense to you[G7/B], trouble child
[G/D] Breaking like the [Dsus4]waves at Malib[G]u
Bb ? C ? Bb ? C ? Bb
C ? Bb ? C ? Bb (2x)
