VERSE:D5add9        A5add9
Reality       burns
E                G
The way we're living's worse
D5add9             A5add9
Pillars of inspiration are
F#m         G
All falling down
D5add9             A5add9
The cleanup won't work
F#m         G
the fallout goes on.

A5add9*            A5add9/G#
Now or never
A5add9*          D5add9
Too close to the latter
A5add9*  A5add9/G# D  (Dsus)
We're all living proof  that nothing lasts
A5add9*            A5add9/G#
And it's here for now
A5add9*          D5add9
transient tomorrow,
A5add9*  A5add9/G# D  (Dsus)
We're all living proof that nothing lasts.

Standing in the neutral zone, livin' on sleep deprivation.
The rural route sleeps while the city bleeds all over itself;
Over the falls in a barrel is where the answers have gone.


Another road remains, but it provides no more,
It can only take us away.
Southbound you can taste the weather;
It feels like home.

CHORUS, repeat intro and out
