Lyrics definitely suspect - see question marks. If you know what I am missing, can you let us know? Thanks!

C                                 Am
The Clock that's ticking knows it all
                                 Em
It's been there standing in the hall
                             G
When you and I were passing by

It stares there laughing


C                             Am
It stays awake while we're asleep
                             Em
It measures out each second beat
                          G
It seems to do so purposely

Holds us to ransom


Chorus:
F          C             G
Waiting to steal my last breath
      C
Well it's ringing the bell ??? 
        Am
And we can't simply die
          Em
Being defeated by death
        G
At the prime of our lives
      C
Well it's ringing the bell ???
        Am
And we got what it takes
        Em
But we don't get the breaks
        G 
No, we don't get the breaks


C                  Am
Mona Lisa knows it too 
                                 Em
She hasn't changed her point of view
                     G
Da Vinci captivated you while I was doubtful
C                          Am
The dancers seemed to be amused
                            Em
While you and I were so confused
                                 G 
The different colours that were used 

To make a rainbow


Chorus


C                                  Am
When it don't come out the way you plan
                    Em
You wave a wand, I stand ???
                     G 
It just went on too long
                    C
You waited for someone
                       Am
To make you feel more safe
                        Em 
And take you from this place
                    G  C      Em    Am    G
Before it gets too la-la-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-te
C      Em    Am    G    C
La-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-te

The lyrics are close enough for me. Going to see them tomorrow night so I'd like to have something to sing along to if they play this one. Thanks for posting.
