This is one of James Young/Tommy Shaw's songs on the Brave New World Album.

I only know the intro/chorus, prechorus, and solo. I might try to get the verses up some 
time. Anyway, this is a really easy song to play. Also my first tab and lyrics, so... enjoy.

Verse 1
Sittin' here on terra firma
It's the place we were meant to be
Out here kinda lost in space now
Pondering life's mystery
All of mankind worship at the altar
Of the old mythology
But the genie's out of the bottle
Collision course with eternity

Intro 2X

Verse 2
Young children playing in the chat room
With the freaks and the satellites
Upload to the nearest planet
Burnin' out at the speed of light
Better livin' for the masses
With the new technology
But some fool went and pushed the button
He didn't get an apology

Verse 3

Sacred cow sizzlin' in the fire
As we all go up in flames
With millions of true believers
And their unfamiliar names

(Pre-chorus)
On the road to good intentions
Blown to hell by our own inventions

(chorus)
Heavy, Heavy Water
Won't wash away the sins of the father
Unholy, holy water
Leading us like lambs to the
