[C]so, so u think u can [D]tell
heaven from [Am]hell? blue skies from [G]pain?
can u tell a green [D]field, from a cold steel [C]rail?
a smile from a [Am]veil? do u think u can [G]tell?
and did they get u to [C]trade? your heroes for [D]ghosts?
hot ashes for [Am]trees? hot air for a [G]cool breeze?
cold comfort for [D]change? and did u ex[C]change,
a walk on part in the [Am]war for a lead role in a [G]cage?
[C]how i wish, how i wish u were [D]here
we're just [Am]two lost souls swimmin [G]in a fish bowl, [D]year after year
runnin over the [C]same old ground, what have we found?
the same old [Am]fears, wish u were [G]here
