First verses: (Roger starts to sing at the end of the preceding Gm7 bar)
Well, who do you think you're [Cm7]foolin'?
You say you're havin' [Cm7]fun,
But you're busy going [Gm7]nowhere,
Just lying in the [Gm7]sun.
You tried to be a [Cm7]hero,
commit the perfect [Cm7]crime
but the dollar got you [Gm7]dancing
and you're running out of [Gm7]time.
You're messin' up the [Cm7]water
You're rolling in the [Cm7]wine
You're poisoning your [Gm7]body
You're poisoning your [Gm7]mind
You gave me coca-[Cm7]cola
You said it tasted [Cm7]good
You watch the tele[Gm7]vision
It tell you that you [Gm7]should.
How can you [Fm7]live in this way?
You must have [Gm7]something to say.
There must be [G#]more to this life.
It's time we [A#]did something right.
[C#]Child of Vision, [A#]won't you listen?
[D#]Find yourself a [Em/5-]new ambition.
(same goes for the lyrics below)
I've heard it all before
You're saying nothing new
I thought I saw a rainbow
But I guess it wasn't true
You cannot make me listen
I cannot make you hear
You find your way to heaven,
I'll meet you when you're there.
How can you live in this way?
You must have something to say.
We have no reason to fight,
cos we both know that we're right.
Child of Vision, won't you listen?
Find yourself a new ambition.
Piano solo over Cm7 and Gm7 just like the verses.
