Intro riff x4

Em      C                  G 
And so now, now that you realize
                   C                        G  
That planets are spheres with oil on the inside
          C                G
And your god is only a catapult
                  C                    G
Waiting for the right time to let you go
            C              G                    G/C
Into the unknown just to watch you hold your breath
             Am              G
Yeah and surrender your fortress
Em             C                       G
And your thoughts will tumble like rocks do 
            C                  G
Over the valleys of factory oceans
       C    
The Turkish carpets are flapping 
         G               Am          G
As the wind drops you down to the surface
                  Am                G 
Yeah when you're looking for your sweet heart
Em    C                 G                  C            G
And you're, you're the kind to hide your eyes from the sun 
              C                 G
And in your world the strong survive 
Am             Em          G  
But I won't lay my body down

Intro riff x4

Em         C                           G
Let me tell you, your arms are like boulders 
                          C                               G
And your shoulders are cliffs, but your head keeps rolling off
                       C                              G
And your spine it is weak from the weight on your shoulders 
              Am          G
And from difference of opinion
Em           C                    G
There is a song you hear on the radio
                C                         G  
It's a funeral march so you change the channel
                  C                             G
But it's all you hear as you're driving up the 101 
      C            G 
From Mexico to California
       Am         G                 Am                    G 
Yeah there's no snow when you're looking for your sweet heart
 Am          G                  Am               G 
There's no snow when you're looking for your answers 
Em      C                 G                C             G
Yeah you're, you're the kind to hide your eyes from the sun 
              C                 G  
And in your world the strong survive 
Am          Em            G 
But I won't lay my body down

Intro riff x8
Em           C                    G           C 
Yeah by the time they get your letter of explanation 
            G
You'll be dead and gone
              C                           G  
Barking up a new tree and eyeing up some new friends 
                     C                                G
And scaring off the families while tidying up your loose ends
             C                   G  
Chasing squirrels around your property 
                       C                        G               
Making sure that they know that this is your kingdom
      Am          G               Am           G 
And nothing will stop it, yeah nothing will stop it
      Am        G            Am             G    
If nothing can stop it, yeah nothing will stop it
Em     C                 G                 C            G 
And you're, you're the kind to hide your eyes from the sun 
              C                 G 
And in your world the strong survive 
  Am        Em                G 
But won't you lay your body down
Em       C               G                 C  
Yes and now, now's the time to wrap your ears 
              G              C            G 
Around the sounds of your train coming round
??? Am Em C G ???
But you don't have to lay everything down
