Verse 1:

E                   A
Sittin' here on the Terra Firma

B                       A*
 It's the place we were meant to be

E              A
Out here kinda lost in space now

B                 A*
 Pondering life's mysteries

E              A
All of mankind worship at the altar

B           A*
 Of the old mythology

E               A
But the genie's out of the bottle

B                      A*
 Collision course with eternity


Play main riff.


Verse 2:

E              A
Young children playin' in the chat room

B                        A*
 With the freaks and the satellites

E             A
Upload to the nearest planet

B                   A*
 Burnin' out at the speed of light

E                     A 
Better living for the masses

B             A*
 With the new technology

E                  A
But some fool went pushed the button

B                 A*
 He didn't get an apology



Bridge 1:

B5                A5
Feelin' good is a new sensation

B5            D D D D D D D
Panacea for a Prozac nation 



Chorus 1 (partial)
play main riff twice

Heavy, heavy water
Won't wash away the sins of the father



Verse 3:

E          A
Sacred Cow sizzlin' in the fire

B             A*
 As we all go up in flames

E                A
With millions of true believers

B            A*
 And their unfamiliar names 



Bridge 2:

B              A
On the road to good intentions

B                    D D D D D D D
Blown to hell by our own inventions




Chorus 2 (full)
play main riff four times

Heavy, heavy water
Won't wash away the sins of the father
Unholy, holy water
Leading us like lambs to the

Lemonade for the thirsty giant

Yeah, but the reason for that is that you had most of it right. So kudos to you for a nice job! I just figured I'd add the other parts so that anyone interested could have an idea what to do on the tune... It's great to see that some people still listen to this album. Rock on dude!
