- Verse -
D                                    G
Everybody wants a piece of some easy enterprise
D                                            G
Can't this world cut your face and carry the news that you've got a gift to be given?
D                                              G
Cut it out, cut your loss, you don't dream you fantasize
D                                                   G
And this is how we measure the cost of enjoying the pain of 21 years of good living

- Chorus -
Bm                             D                      
When you look at me do you see someone with a future?
Em                           G
Music to my ears it makes me happy when you tell me
Bm                                    D
This place is like a womb you live so well from doing nothing
Em                                   G
One day you will learn there is some beauty in the thing that makes you sweat

D	G

- Verse 2 -
D                                         G
Gotta take something great just to get me out of bed
D                                          G
And I woke up with a start, 'cause I had a dream, yes I had a vision of people
             Bm
Lying in the sun
                D 
Sleeping on the rocks and stones
                Em
Waiting just to die
               F#m
They were just fast asleep like lions
               G
They were just fast asleep like lions in summer

- Chorus -
When you look at me do you see someone with a future?
Music to my ears it makes me happy when you tell me
This place is like a womb you live so well from doing nothing
One day you will learn there is some beauty in the thing that makes you

- Middle 8/Outro -
Bm                                D
Sweat out all the years of wasted time
     G     
Half divine
              D     C#
Half what you could be
    Bm                          (w\ Bass Bb)
Oh, all this time they let this city
            (w\ Bass A)
Get sad and empty
                    (w\ Bass G#)
'cause they're only half awake

G
when you look at me do you see someone with a future?
Em                                   F#                                 Bm
One day you will learn there is some beauty in the thing that makes you sweat
