jump or be sane lyrics – catatonia

well i know what i like and i like what i see
i know what i want and i know what i need
and the more that i get, the more that i need
so if you’re coming along well you’re coming out easy
everybody screams don’t know what to believe
i just follow someone else’s life
and all my bookcases groan none of the words are my own
i just follow someone else’s life cm
and all the knowledge i crave is waiting there in my grave
so it seems – jump or be sane
i want to move on but i know when to stay
oh you can stand there all day, you can shoulder the blame
but they’re spoiling the paintwork and they’re ruining the line
and i’ve been here before and it ain’t worth your overtime
everybody screams don’t know what to believe
i just follow someone else’s life
and all my bookcases groan none of the words are my own
i just follow someone else’s life
they’ve got me running around but it’s not work that they’ve found
just something to keep me occupied cm
and all the knowledge i crave is waiting there in my grave
so it seems – jump or be sane
jump or be sane
jump or be sane
jump or be sane
jump or be sane

eb
catch me if you can, my feet won’t ever feel the ground again

f
so let the overture take over and the symphony restrain
f
let the orchestra be p*ssion and the timpanis the rain

em a cm
everybody screams don’t know what to believe
g
i just follow someone else’s life
em a cm
and all my bookcases groan none of the words are my own
g
i just follow someone else’s life
em a
cm
they’ve got me running around but it’s not work that they’ve found
g
just something to keep me occupied
em a cm
it’s a mean machine keep it tight keep it clean
g
just something to keep me occupied
ema cm
and as a matter of course be not vexed by remorse
g
i’m not lost but one who’s gone before
em a cm
and as the knowledge i crave is waiting there in my grave
g d
then it seems jump or be sane
em
jump or be sane
d
jump or be sane
em
jump or be sane
