Intro: E

Verse:
E
I was raised up believing
      A
I was somehow unique
       B
Like a snowflake distinct among snowflakes
   A                       E
Unique in each way you can see

Verse:
E
And now after some thinking
    A
I'd say I'd rather be
  B
A functioning cog in some great machinery
 A                       E
Serving something beyond me

Chorus:
E                                        A
But I don't, I don't know what that will be
         E                       A         E
I'll get back to you someday soon you will see

Verse:
E
What's my name, what's my station
        A
Oh just tell me what I should do
        B
I don't need to be kind to the armies of night
           A                    E
That would do such injustice to you

Verse:
E
Or bow down and be grateful
         A
And say "Sure take all that you see"
       B
To the men who move only in dimly-lit halls
       A                    E
And determine my future for me

Chorus:
E                                     A
And I don't, I don't know who to believe
         E                     A           E
I'll get back to you someday soon you will see

Verse:
E
If I know only one thing
          A
It's that every thing that I see
       B
Of the world outside is so inconceivable
A                  E
Often I barely can speak

Yeah I'm tongue tied and dizzy
      A
And I can't keep it to myself
      B
What good is it to sing helplessness blues?
           A                 E
Why should I wait for anyone else?

Chorus:
E                                          A
And I know, I know you will keep me on the shelf
          E                    A       E
I'll come back to you someday soon myself

Short Instrumental: E

Bridge:
E           A
If I had an orchard
    E             A
I'd work till I'm raw
A6          E
If i had an orchard
                  A      Asus4   A
I'd work till I'm sore


    E              A
And you would wait tables
    E            A    Asus4   A
And soon run the store


E                 A
Gold hair in the sunlight
   E            A
My light in the dawn
A6          E
If I had an orchard
                  A    Asus4    A
I'd work till I'm sore


   E       A
If I had an orchard
   E              A    Asus4   A
I'd work till I'm sore


-harmony Verse - follow same chord pattern as before-


   E         A
Someday I'll be
        E               A
Like the man on the screen

Outro: A  Asus4  A  E
