An REM cover off GBS's 1997 album, "Play". None of the chords on here sound correct to me. So, I decided to finally figure out the chords myself. Very easy, only 3 chords. Not nearly as easy to sing, however! -Standard Tuning- -Capo on the 2nd fret- -The chords are played as follows:- *All chords relative to the capo* D: xx0232 A: x02220 G: 320003 (PM) = Palm mute the chord (Ring) = Let the chord ring [Intro] D (PM) A (PM) G (Ring) G It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine [Verse 1] D G That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds, D G snakes, an aeroplanes, Lenny Bruce is not afraid. D G Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn - world D serves its own needs, dummy serve your own needs. Feed G it off an aux speak, grunt, no, strength, Ladder D start to clatter with fear fight down height. Wire G in a fire, representing seven games, a government D for hire and a combat site. Left of west and coming in G D a hurry with the furies breathing down your neck. Team by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered cropped. G D Look at that low playing! Fine, then. Uh oh, G overflow, population, common food, but it'll do. Save D yourself, serve yourself. World serves its own needs, G listen to your heart bleed dummy with the rapture and D the revered and the right, right. You vitriolic, G patriotic, slam, fight, bright light, feeling pretty G (PM) psyched. [Chorus] D A G It's the end of the world as we know it D A G It's the end of the world as we know it D A G It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine [Verse 2] Six o'clock - TV hour. Don't get caught in foreign towers. Slash and burn, return, listen to yourself churn. Locking in, uniforming, book burning, blood letting. Every motive escalate. Automotive incinerate. Light a votive, light a candle. Step down, step down. Watch your heel crush, crushed, uh-oh, this means no fear cavalier. Renegade steer clear! A tournament, tournament, a tournament of lies. Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives and I decline. [Chorus] (x2) *Palm mute on the 2nd chorus* It's the end of the world as we know it It's the end of the world as we know it It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine [Verse 3] The other night I dreamt of knives, continental drift divide. Mountains sit in a line, Leonard Bernstein. Leonid Brezhnev, Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs. Birthday party, cheesecake, jelly bean, boom! You symbiotic, patriotic, slam book neck, right? Right. [Chorus] (x2) It's the end of the world as we know it It's the end of the world as we know it It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine [End on D]
