G
In a Shanghai noodle factory, place where I once used to be

D
Nowhere doing nothing

G
People there were made of steel, tiny cogs in one big wheel

D
Turning never learning

(second time go to second ending)
F                        G                             C
Had to make a break, and soon I had to wake up feeling stronger

        E
Feeling stronger

      F  C      D           E          Am        F   G   Am   A
In my island of dreams with impossible schemes


(repeat)


Second ending:
F                      G                           C
Had to make a break, I knew I couldn't fake it any longer

F                      G                                C
Everything just aches, soon I'd have to wake up feeling stronger

        E
Feeling stronger

      F  C      D      E          Am
In my island of dreams impossible schemes

F   G   Am   A   Ab
