Intro:
Em-Riff
Em
You were not the first to arrive,
and will not be the last to survive,
as the pigs and the oxen we bound to the wheel

tear it 
A
off, tear it off!
  
You 
Em
are not the last of this house,
or the first to go over the side.
Remember the wrecks of those elegant ships-
  
“Turn it 
A
off! Turn it off!”
  
No. Look with 
C
century 
G
eyes till they 
D
make you go 
Em
blind.

Em
Galloping into the void,
you are rolling your eyes like a horse,
all to turn from the beam, from the eye of that screen.
  
“Turn it 
A
off! Turn it off!
  
With our 
C
backs to the 
G
arch and the 
D
wreck of our 
Em
kind,
  
we will 
C
stare straight a
G
head for the 
D
rest of our 
Em
lives!”
