Verse 1
               G          Em      G         
Soon you'll be burning orphanages down,
         G     D              Em       
Watching ashes scattering and all over town,
             G              C            Em
And when the smoke gets too close to the ground,
           C                   D                   Em      --  (C, G)
You'll see blue trampling over grey and green over brown.

Verse 2
              G            Em           G         
And you'll be cutting ears of off, dead men,
        G               D           Em       
Pumping shells into the carcass for hours on end,
            G                C           Em
Then you'll swear that we've always been friends,
         C                         D           Em    --  (C, G)
And be unable to conceive it could ever happen again.

C                    G                                
Of course you have, never been to blame, 
D                        Em
for the various horrible things that you did.
C                   G                      D                      Em
You may have gotten away with them too, if not for those meddling kids.
                 C                        D
The lump in your throat, the ache in your bones,
They are nobody's fault but your own.

Verse 3
    G        Em         G
And whatever amount you paid,
         G       D          Em
For your many distractions, well it was too much,
G          C          Em
And at the end of the day,
             C                    D                  Em    -- (C-G)
To what-ever extent that you hate yourself, it isn't enough.

Verse 4
    G      Em        G
And we can no longer afford,
            G          D         Em
Waiting for someone to lift this terrible swift sword.
       G          C              Em
In our basements, we all look so bored
            C                     D             Em  -- (C-G)
We've never seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.

C                      G    
There will be parties, there will be fun, 
D                            Em
There'll be tall gallows for everyone.
C                  G              D                        Em
And we will all be sleeping easy, Up-on the sinking of the sun.
                 C                     D
But there's only one dream that I keep close,
And it's the one of my hand at your throat.

Verse 5
       G           Em    G
I will not deny my humanity.
        G              D         Em
I'll be rolling in, in it like a pig in feces,
     G                    C      Em
Because there's no other, integrity
   C            D             Em    -- (C-G)
In-awaiting the demise of our species.

C                    G                 D                   Em
May you endure every indignity knowing all the while, that life will go on,
C                          G                 D                     Em
And when it ends, may have nothing to say, except that it took too long,
C                  D
And may I be there somehow,
Asking, "Where are all of your friends now?"
