|D5 D/C |D5 D/C |D5 D/C |D5 D/C

Deep in the back of my mind is an unrealized sound

|Bb |C |D5 D/C|D5 D/C

Every feeling I get from the street says it soon could be found

 

|D5 D/C |D5 D/C |D5 D/C |D5 D/C

When I hear the cold lies of the pusher I know it exists

|Bb |C |D D/C|D D/C

It's confirmed in the eyes of the kids emphasized with their fists

 

|F C |Eb Bb

But the high has to rise from the low

Like volcanoes explode through the snow

|Gm |F6(C) |Ebmaj7 |A7

The mosquito's sting brings a dream but the poisons derange Hmm

|D5 D/C |D5

The music must change

D/C (A)|Dm/G Em/G |Fad9(A) G(B)

For we're chewing a bone

|A Bm7 |

We soared like the sparrow hawk

|D A(E) |D5 D/C |D5

Flied then we drop like a stone

|D5 D/C |D5

Like the tide and the waves

|Dm(G) Em(G)|Fadd9(G) G

Growing slowly in range

|A Bm7 |D A(E) |D D/C|D

Crushing mountains as old as the earth, so the music must change change

 

|D A/D |D A/D |D A/D|D |

 

S-sometimes at night I wake up and my body's like ice

The sound of the running wild stallion, the noise of the m-mice

And I wondered if then I could hear into all of your dreams

I realize now it was really the sound of your screams

 

But death always leads into life

Like the street-fighter swallows the knife

Am I so crazy to feel that it's here pre-arranged?

The music must change

It gets higher and higher

Smolderin' like leaves in the sun

Then it bursts into fire

Its rhythm grows strong

It's so new and so strange

Like bells in the clouds, then again the music must change

 

|D |

Change

 

|D G/D A/D |D G/D A/D|D G/D A/D|D G/D A/D|

 

|D G A A6/D|

But is this song so different?

|D G A A6/D|

Am I doing it all again?

|D G A A6/D|

It may have been done A6/D

|D G A |

But then music's an open door

 

||:D G A A6/D:||

 

[repeat intro]

 

Deep in the back of my mind is an unrealized sound

Every feeling I get from the street says it soon could be found

When I hear the cold lies of the pusher I know it exists

It's confirmed in the eyes of the kids emphasized with their fists

 

But the high has to rise from the low

Like volcanoes explode through the snow

The mosquito's sting brings a dream but the poisons derange

The music must change

For we're chewing a bone

We soar like the sparrow hawk fly, then we dropped like a stone

Like the tide and the waves growing slowly in range

Crushing mountains as old as the earth, the music must change
