  Grieving each others lives
  Holding this in mind
  That if we fall, we all fall
  And we fall alone

  The calming sincerity of steel machines
  Have consumed our euphoria
  Transforming us into muted dreams
  Dreaming of the day that

  We attack
  Attack, attack our fatal servitude
  We attack
  Attack, attack with pesticide
  We attack
  All the years of propaganda
  We shall attack!

  Bombs illustrate what we already know
  Candles cry towards the sky
  Bracing your plants of a polluted coast
  Dreaming of the day that

  Was the philosophy of displaced minds
  The bombing of all homes and villages?
  Truth is the only sort we demise
  Pleading till the day that

  Attack all the homes and villages
  Attack all the schools and hospitals
  You have attacked all the innocent villages
  We shall attack!

yeah its a good tab, lyrics are a bit off though. The verses are really this:
The cold insincerity of steel machines
Have consumed our euphoria
Transforming us into muted dreams
Dreaming of the day that

Books illustrate what we already know
Candles cry towards the sky
Racing your flags along polluted coasts
Dreaming of the day that

What's the philosophy of displaced mines
The bombing of all homes and villages
Truth is the only sword bleeding minds
Bleeding till the day that


Still a good tab though.
