----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tuning:Normal

            Verse 1:
Dm                        F
This is a song that came upon me one night 
          Dm
When the news it had been telling me 
       F                G
About one more war and one more fight
      Dm 
And 'aeh' I sighed but then
     F
I thought about my friends
         Dm
Then I wrote this declaration
         F              G
Just in case the world end
 


           Verse 2:
Our guns
Dm             F
 We shot them in the things we said
        Dm
Ah we didn't need no bullets 
         F            G
Cos we rely on some words instead 
Dm
Kill someone in argument
F
Outwit them with our brains 
          Dm
And we'd kill ourselves laughing
         F                G
At the funny things we'd say 



           Verse 3:
And bombs 
Dm              F
  We had them saved for special times
          Dm
When the crew would call a shakedown 
     F            G
We break down a party landmine 
Dm
Women that so sexy 
        F
They explode us with their looks 
         Dm
Ah we blowing up some speakers 
          F              G        
Jumping round till the ground shook 



           Verse 4:
And missiles
Dm                   F
   They were the roadtrips that we launched
       Dm
T-t-tripping across this island 
            F              G
Starting missions at the break of dawn
 Dm
Yawn and smile say 
        F
What direction shall we take? 
Dm
Somewhere where it warm and wet 
F                        G
This be the route we'd always take and 



           Chorus:
Dm                      Dm
  Our weapons were our instruments 
F           G          F
Made from timber and steel 
              Dm
We never yielded to conformity 
      Dm
But stood like kings 
        F
In a chariot that's riding on a 
   G
Record wheel

            Verse 5:
           Dm
And our airforce flying 
            F
When the frisbee in the sky 
         Dm
Have a session while we're smoking
             F           G
Now we're feeling extra high 
          Dm 
And we'd sneak into a carpark
            F
With the skaties on our back 
            Dm
And we're flying down the levels howling 
         F                G
On the attack now on the attack



           Verse 6:
And battles 
Dm                   F
  They happened in these dancehalls 
           Dm
See we'd rather fight with music
    F               G
Choosing one the rhythm war
Dm
Battle at these shakedowns 
         F
And we battle at these gigs 
        Dm
We do battle in our bedrooms 
            F                G
Made some sweet love to the beat 



           Bridge:
           Dm
Then our allies grew 
     F
Wherever we would roam 
        Dm 
See whenever we're together 
        F             G
Any stranger feel at home 
      Dm
In a way we are an army 
          F
But this army not destruct 
      Dm
No instead we're doing simple things
       F             G
Good loving find it run amuck 



           Verse 7:
Dm
This be a declaration 
   F
Written about my friends
        Dm
It's engraved into this song 
         F               G
So they know I'm not forgetting them 
      Dm
See maybe if the world contained
 F
More people like these 
          Dm
Then the news would not be telling me
       F                   G
About all that warfare endlessly and
