Verse 1:
A                                                E/G#
Wake at four and slip into the train
              A                E/G#
Time to join the rat race
A                                                      E/G#
Jot in planner take some time for son
              A                         E/G#
It would be a change for once

D                       F#m
You said you'd be there
A  D                    F#m
A  promise was broken
A  D                       F#m       A D                       E
     Love could not give you a reason to stay, to stay

Look around at these people that you call your friends
                         A2         E
They would sell you for money if they ever got the chance
                    A2         E                                  D       E

Of killing those years

A                                                           E/G#
Soul your soul to chase for gold and fame
          A                     E/G#
It has cost you everything
A                                                       E/G#
Punch the clock and work the overtime

The hourglass has run dry
