Tabbed by: lusion01 Email: illu[dot]215[at]gmail[dot][com] Just a thought: I have made the chords as primary barre chords, but I've seen a video in the first verse Dan plays the open D chord while playing the C and Bb acting as bass lines on the 5th string, although on the next verse he then primary barre chords. Whichever version shouldn't make too much of a difference, but I think it's cool to have that variation with open primary barre chords. I altered some of the lyrics from the booklet just 'cause the song says otherwise. It's 1/2 step down tuning on the album version, but I've tried transcribing some live and it's played in standard. It's up to you to decide which one you like, hence why I have not selected a specific tuning. Anyway, here's the song. All chords are primary barre chords except when stated otherwise (e.g. "Bm(2)" is my way saying that this is a secondary barre chord) D C B Bb G American Apparel had a special on khaki D C B Bb G With a matching balaclava stitched in Northern Italy D C B Bb G Well it just got me thinking and I flashed my credit card C(open) A7(open) I must admit I might have been a trifle hard D C B Bb G I read the weather makers, read some Gandhi too D C B Bb And I thought about the space that does exist 'tween me and you D C B Bb Then I stole some high explosive from the coffin cheaters club C(open) A7(open) Then I vanished like a ninja to the scrub Bm(2) F#m I am the Decommissioner A(open) Em(open) Guilty of the worst sedition G(open) Helicopters on my trail A(open) C(open) I'm dancing like a hare krishna! (D C B Bb G X2) D C B Like Steve McQueen on my 250 Bb G O-er the compound fence D C B Well the blood had lifted to my head Bb G My legs were in suspense D And I rammed a stick of jelly C B Bb G 'Neath the cooling towers wall C(open) A7(open) I crashed the boom gate as the bricks began to fall Bm(2) F#m I am the Decommissioner A(open) Em(open) Taking the extreme position G(open) Taunting the police commissioner! Bm(2) F#m I am the Decommissioner A(open) Em(open) Guilty of the worst sedition G(open) Service station cameras catch me A(open) C(open) Chantin' like a hare krishna! (Wacky instrumental high speed chase through Gippsland commences.While this occurs, play open D for 4 bars) D(open) Road blocks on all the highways Bb(2) C(open) I slunk along the creeks D(open) Soon joined by angry scientists Bb(2) C(open) And some old Jesus freaks D(open) Collecting strange disciples Bb(2) C(open) We hatched a brand new plan D(open) We started pre production Bb(2) C(open) On a touring indie band! D C B We went up the freeway in our black tarago Bb G Run on solar power D C B Decommissioning power stations Bb G The cops close by the hour D C B Reviewers in their leather trench coats Bb G Settin' up my buzz C(open) A7(open) Say I'll be famous if I just avoid the fuzz! Bm(2) F#m Oh Mr. Police Commissioner A(open) Em(open) Look at it from my position G(open) Apocalypse is comin' Bm(2) F#m And I'm really a concerned parishioner A(open) Em(open) Acting on my own volition G(open) Taking the extreme position A(open) C(open) I'm tired of all this indecision! (Boom)
