With an army of me

In the land of the free 
And the home of the remedy
The old clock is a thief
With dirty second hands with dirty second hands

~REPEAT CHORUS~

~BRIDGE~ NOTE:You keep repeating the intro riff all the way through
The bridge, until the chords come in, or you can just play D5/A throughout.

Are you really as tough as you think
You blink and you're over the brink
You bleed but the blood runs pink
With dirty second hands dirty second hands
You're not quite as tough as you thought
You bought the American rot
The very seed that you thought you shot
With dirty second hands dirty second hands
You might be right the fight might be right inside you
The blind leading the lied to
Tonight maybe you bind you with dirty second hands
F5         B5      F5    B5        C5     C#5 D5/A

 It was a beautiful letdown when I crashed and burned
       E            D                 E     D
When I found myself alone unknown and hurt
         A         E      D          E    D  A
It was a beautiful letdown the day I knew
             E                              D              E  D  A
That all the riches this world had to offer me would never do

In a world full of bitter pain bitter doubt
      C#m                               F#
I was trying so hard to fit in to fit in

Until I found out that

I know that this isn't exactly the way Switchfoot plays it, but if you don't
want to play a whole bunch of riffs, and just want to be able to sing to some
music, this tab is perfect.
It took me a while to tab these out, so I hope you enjoy being able to play
some of the best music in the world.
