The warming sun, the cooling rain, the snowflake drifting on the breath of the breeze
D             Bm/D                G/D     A7/D  F/D      G/D            C/G      Am
The lightning bolt that frees the sky for you,  yet only eagles seem to pass on through
    F/D      Gm/D      C        F
The words of love, the cries of hate
Bb      A          Bb         F              Bb      F            Dm   | Dm/G  G |
And the man in the moon who seduced you then finally loosed you
 
VERSE
    Am/C           Bm7     G         Am/C           Em
You climbed upon a burning rope to escape the mob below
    Am/C            Bm7     G           Esus2/A
But you had put the flaming out so that others could now follow
                 E              F#m7     C#m/G#           A
To be out of the bounds and the barks of those who do not wish you well
    Bsus4                      Bm/G   Cmaj7/G   D6/G     G7
You must blaze a trail of your own, unknown,   alone but keep in mind
Em
Don't live today for tomorrow like you were immortal
    Em7/A             Bb                 A
The only survivors on this world of ours are
 
CHORUS
D           Bm/D     G/D     A7/D  F/D           G/D             C/G           Am
The warming sun, the cooling rain, the snowflake drifting on the breath of the breeze
D             Bm/D                G/D     A7/D  F/D      G/D            C/G     Am
The lightning bolt that frees the sky for you,  yet only eagles seem to pass on through
    F/D      Gm/D      C        F
The words of love, the cries of hate
Bb      A          Bb          F             Bb      F            Dm   | Dm/G  G |
And the man in the moon who seduced you then finally loosed you

VERSE
       Am/C         Bm7      G          Am/C       Em
You're old and disillusioned now as you realise at last
     Am/C           Bm7        G              Esus2/A
That all you have accomplished here will have soon have turned to dust
               E            F#m7       C#m/G#           A
You dream of a future after life, well that's as maybe, I don't know
    Bsus4                        Bm/G        Cmaj7/G   D6/G    G7
But you can't take what you left behind, you're all,  alone so keep in mind
Em
Don't live today for tomorrow like you were immortal
    Em7/A             Em/G               D
The only survivors on this world of ours are

D           Bm/D     G/D     A7/D  F/D           G/D             C/G           Am
The warming sun, the cooling rain, the snowflake drifting on the breath of the breeze
D             Bm/D                G/D     A7/D  F/D      G/D            C/G     Am
The lightning bolt that frees the sky for you,  yet only eagles seem to pass on through
    F/D      Gm/D      C        F
The words of love, the cries of hate
Bb      A          A
And the man in the moon
