 |: Dm/G  C/F   Bb/Eb G/C :|

 |: F/F(G) F(A)/F(Bb)   C  /  C(D)   C(E) / C :|
    In my prison cell I think these words
 |: F/F(G) F(A)/F(Bb)     C  /  C(D)   C(E) / C :|
    I was careless, I can see that now
 |:        Dm /  G   C   /  F       Bb / Eb G  /  C :|
    I must be silent, must contain my secret smile
 |:        Dm /  G   C   /  F       Bb / Eb G  /  C :|
    I want to tell you - you my mirror, you my iron bars

 Am               Bb           C      Dm
    When I made a shadow on my window shade
 Eb                 G          C   Bb
    They called the police and testified
 Am                      Bb                C      Dm
    But they're like the people chained up in the cave
 G            -            Bb            C
   I n the allegory of the people in the cave by the Greek guy

 Chorus:
 |: F/F(G) F(A)/F(Bb)   C  /  C(D)   C(E) / C :|
 No one understands
 |: F/F(G) F(A)/F(Bb)   C  /  C(D)   C(E) / C :|
 no one knows my plan
 |:        Dm /  G   C   /  F       Bb / Eb G  /  C :|
 why the dancing, shouting; why the shrieks of pain
 |:        Dm /  G   C   /  F       Bb / Eb G  /  C :|
 the lovely music - why the smell of burning autumn leaves

 Instrumental:
 Am  Bb  C  Dm
 Eb  G  C  Bb
 Am  Bb  C  Dm
 G  -  Bb  C

 Chorus

 |: F/F(G) F(A)/F(Bb)   C  /  C(D)   C(E) / C :|
 In my prison cell I bide my time
 |: F/F(G) F(A)/F(Bb)   C  /  C(D)   C(E) / C :|
 Always thinking, always busy cooking up an angle
 |:        Dm /  G   C   /  F       Bb / Eb G  /  C :|
 Working on the tiny blueprint of the angle
 |:        Dm /  G   C   /  F       Bb / Eb G  /  C :|
 Sketching out the burning autumn leaves

 Chorus:
 |: F/F(G) F(A)/F(Bb)   C  /  C(D)   C(E) / C :|
 No one understands
 |: F/F(G) F(A)/F(Bb)   C  /  C(D)   C(E) / C :|
 no one knows my plan
 |:        Dm /  G   C   /  F       Bb / Eb G  /  C :|
 I must be silent, must contain my secret smile
 |:        Dm /  G   C   /  F       Bb / Eb G  /  C :|
 I want to tell you - you my mirror, you my iron bars
