Intro: D


Am         D
        An address to the golden door
Am            D
        I was strumming on a stone again
Am              D                           E               
        pulling teeth from the pimps of gore when hatched
a tragic opera in my mind...

Am             D
        and it told of a new design
Am               D 
        in which every soul is duty bound
Am           D                               E
        to uphold all the statues of boredom therein lies
run                   C      
the fatal flaw of the red age

               F                      C          
Because it was nothing like we'd ever dreamt
             F                           C             
our lust for life had gone away with the rent we hated
               D               F                   G          
and because it made no money nobody saved no one's life this time.

verse: (Am D...)
So we burned all our uniforms 
and let nature take its course again 
and the big ones just eat all the little ones 
that send us back to the drawing board.

In our darkest hours 
we have all asked for some  
angel to come                             
             C         G 
sprinkle his dust all around                                 
    C                                G                             
but all our crying voices they can't turn it around                
                F                           Am  D   Am                                        
you've had some crazy conversations of your ooowwwwn.

We've got rules and maps and guns in our backs 
but we still can't just behave ourselves 
even if to save our own lives so, says I, we are a brutal kind.

Cuz this is nothing like we'd ever dreamt 
tell Sir Thomas More we've got another failed attempt 
cuz if you give them money they might just give you life this time.
