     {This bar three times} 
                                     D    C   D 
Spread out your wings, let's see you fly 
                             G     C   A 
What does it take to get you high? 
                         G    F   C 
Not something money ever buys 
D                           D    C   D 
Damage control is bought to bear 
                           G    C   A 
With cracks appearing everywhere 
                            G    F   C 
You're too far gone to even care 
D           C    G 
You're in a mind set, 
D               C     G 
You've got your wires crossed 
D              C     G       F     C   D 
Are even these words lost on you? (oh, yeah) 
One of these days I hope you learn 
how candles are supposed to burn 
You act as if that's no concern (of yours) 
You've taken a wrong turn, 
You're stuck in a tailspin 
What good has your life been to you? (oh, yeah) 
G                            C   F 
How can you shake your head (oh, yeah) 
But when you wake up dead 
C              F   C 
Will that do you? 
Could that cure you? (oh yeah) 
                           C   F 
And all your friends say, (oh, yeah) 
"It had to end this way" 
C                   F   C 
You couldn't face it, 
Was all wasted on you 
Nothing they could do 
There has to be a better way 
to make believe that you're o.k. 
You're not the first to be afraid 
there is no shame, (aren't you afraid?)
