Verse/Chorus:
    A                              F#m
The king of the swingin' moods is back in town

    E                       D
and everybody's tiptoeing around him

surround him as he

A
pounds a silver hammer,

       F#m
drops revolutionary grammar

   E
concerning the burning of city hall

    D
and urban sprawl and decay


                A
bidding

                F#m                     E
Farewell to the days of having it both ways

Hell is other people

     D
Some people never learn

     A
When optimism fails

       F#m
and my cooler head prevails

       E                           D
I will meet you at the point of diminishing returns


(repeat Verse/Chorus rhythm figures)

Down in the abstract
looking for a concrete artifact
something to hold on to
not one more thing to believe in
Stuck in a fallback
and fighting off a heart attack
and you're so tangible
like a nitroglycerin tablet
under my tongue

bidding
Farewell to the days of having it both ways
The boom's a bust-out
but thanks for your concern
When pessimism fails
and my cooler head prevails
I will meet you at the point of diminishing returns

Pre-Chorus:
(with Intro/Bridge)

Progress shall be defined by
your position on the bridge as it burns


(repeat Verse/Chorus rhythm figure)

When populism, activism, urbanism fail
my cooler head will prevail
When there are no more gods left to anoint
no more noses to bend out of joint
I'm gonna meet you at the point of diminishing returns


Outro:

     ^A(2)
When optimism fails

       ^F#m(2)
and my cooler head prevails

       ^E(2)                    ^D(2)
I will meet you at the point of diminishing returns

After these few bars the outro plays through in reverse and then ends.  There's
some more instrumentation here than I've tabbed out but that's the gist of it.
