D|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---2h3p2---2h3p2---2h3p2---2h3p2---2h3p2---2h3p2---2h3p2---2h3p2---|
E|-3-------3-------3-------3-------3-------3-------3-------3---------|

Then strum this F with the occasional hammer-on on the G and B strings like this

B string hammer on:

e|-0---|
B|-0h1-|
G|-2---|
D|-3---|
A|-3---|
E|-x---|

G string hammer on:

e|-0---|
B|-1---|
G|-0h2-|
D|-3---|
A|-3---|
E|-x---|

The song then goes into basic open chords, with the occasional hammer on each chord, 
experiment till you get it right

C
The custom concern for the people
Am
Is build up monuments and steeples
G                      F
To wear out our eyes
C
I get up just about noon
Am
My head sends a message for me to reach for my shoes and then walk
G                                                 F
Gotta go to work, gotta go to work, gotta have a job
C
He goes through the parking lot fields
Am
Didn't see no signs that they would yield and then thought
G                                                  F
This'll never end, this'll never end, this'll never stop

(Interlude: C Am G F)

C
Message read on the bathroom wall says
Am
"I don't feel at all, at all like I fall." and
G
We're losing all our touch, losing all our touch now
          F
Building a desert
                                      C
Oh my love were building ourselves a desert
                              Am
We're building ourselves a desert
                              F
We're building ourselves a desert
                              C
We're building ourselves a desert
                              Am
We're building ourselves a desert
                              F
We're building ourselves a desert

End on C :)
