Chorus Riff Am Trapped in the elevator of your mind Is it real, what will you find behind the door Your imaginations put you in a bind Around you there's a cloud of gloom Swallow the key, lock yourself in a room Can't see outside of your universe C No more war, there won't be anymore hunger Em No jealousy, not even competition Dm Let go, release, you hold the keys Em Time we evaporate into the breeze C We are nothing, we are something Em Let go, release, you hold the keys Dm It's time we evaporate into the breeze Em We are nothing, we'll be something C Welcome to the desert of my soul Em You can stay if you like, there's room for one more Dm Em There's room for one more ============= Shalom/Saalam ============= Capo 1 Instrumental in F Major ================== Late Night in Zion
