Am G F C C/B Blacktop pavement cover me Am Dm F G Like a chemical reaction or a steamroller, spreading randomly Am G F C There's a distant buzz and low frequency Am G F C C/G It tickles my ears, rumbles under my feet Dm Dm/F C G And it shakes the leaves off of every tree F C G Vio-lent-ly Am G Dm What pretention! everlasting peace F F/F# G G/G# Am Eve-ry-thing must cease Am G F E E7 (x2) Am G E Am G F C C/B In-sti-tu-tion on the hill Am Dm F G Like a beacon in the mind of an ancestor to ignite a people's will Am G F C There's a shadow stain on the west facade Am G F C C/G It has spread like decay to enshroud the fraud Dm Dm/F C G F C G and the descendents find it oh so odd, oh so odd Am G Dm What pretention! everlasting peace F F/F# G G/G# Am Eve-ry-thing must cease Am G F E E7 (X2) Am G E Am G F C C/B Grave memorial, hewn white stone Am Dm F G Like the comforting caress of a mother or a friend you've always known Am G F C It evokes such pain and significance Am G F C C/G What was once is reduced to rememberence Dm Dm/F C G And the generations pass without recompense F C G Oh- Oh - Ohh Am G Dm What pretention everlasting peace F F/F# G G/G# Eve-ry-thing must... cease. Am G F E E7 (x4) end with Am.
