VERSE 1:
E
There's a breakdown on the runway, And the timeless flights are gone
D A E
I'm a year ahead of myself these days, And I'm locomotive strong
E
My city spread like cannon fire In a yellow nervous state
D A E
I can't cut the ties that bind me To horoscopes and fate

CHORUS:
D/A A D/A A
And I won't break and I won't bend
D/A A E
But someday soon we'll sail away
B B7 E E7
To innocence and the bitter end
D/A A D/A A
And I won't break and I won't bend
D/A A E
And with the last breath we ever take
B7 A E
We're gonna get back to the simple life again

BRIDGE:
G E G D A A
G E G D A

VERSE 2:
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

CHORUS

SOLO:
G E G D A A
G E G D A
A A E E
A A E E
G E G D A A
G E G D A
