Intro: E5 - G5

E5              G5
This place is a prison
E5                          G5  
And these people aren't your friends
E5                      G5
Inhaling thrills through twenty dollar bills
As the tumblers are drained
And then flooded again and again

D5 - E5 - G5  x2

E5                    G5
There's guards at the on ramps
E5           G5
Armed to the teeth
And you may case the grounds
From the Cascades to Puget Sound
But you are not permitted to leave

C5                    D5
I know there's a big world out there
        E5                G5
Like the one that I saw on the screen
C5                 D5
In my living room late last night
       E5                 C5
It was almost too bright to see
And I know that it's not a party
      E5            C5
If it happens every night
Pretending there's glamour and candelabra
As you're drinking by candlelight

E5 - D4-

C5                          WALK  -  TO  -  E5    D5
What does it take to get a drink in this place?
C5                               E5 
What does it take, how long must I wait?      

[repeat to end]
