VERSE 1

      Eb
I was raised up believing

      Ab 
I was somehow unique

       D#7M             
Like a snowflake distinct among snowflakes

   Ab                      Eb
Unique in each way you can see


And now after some thinking

        Ab
I'd say I'd rather be

  D#7M
A functioning cog in some great machinery

Ab                       Eb
Serving something beyond me

----

CHORUS

      Eb                                          Ab2
But I don't, I don't knowwwwwwwwww what that will be

         Eb   Ab2    Eb       Ab2                 Eb
I'll get back to you someday, sooooooon, you will see

----

VERSE 2

          Eb
What's my name, what's my station

         Ab
Oh, just tell me what I should do

        D#7M
I don't need to be kind to the armies of night

           Ab                   Eb
That would do such injustice to you


Or bow down, and be grateful

         Ab
And say "Sure, take all that you see"

       D7#M
To the men who move only in dimly lit halls

       Ab                    Eb
That determine my future for me

----

CHORUS

      Eb                                     Ab2
But I don't, I don't knowwwwwwwwww who to believe

         Eb   Ab2    Eb       Ab2                 Eb
I'll get back to you someday, sooooooon, you will see

----

VERSE 3

     Eb
If I know only one thing

          Ab
It's that everything that I see

       D#7M                              
Of the world outside is so inconceivable

Ab                 Eb
Often I barely can speak


Yah, I'm tongue tied and dizzy

       Ab
And I can't keep it to myself

     D#7M
What good is it to sing helplessness blues?

           Ab                D#7M
Why should I wait for anyone else?

----

CHORUS

      Eb                                           Ab2
And I know, I knowwww, youuuuu will keep me on the shelf

          Eb   Ab2    Eb       Ab2            Ab2
I'll come back to you someday, soooooooon, my saint
