Notes: Chords and accents (where applicable) on top, note values on bottom
       (see key below).  Use a pretty heavy chorus effect throughout.
       Intro and Refrain - use light strumming; barely hit those A chords
      at the end of the first two measures.  Let the open E chord ring.
       Verse - use pick-hand muting, but hit the highest note (B) sharply.
       The "2T" indicates that it's easiest to fret the F# with your thumb.
       The (0) indicates that the open A is used here only at the very
       beginning of each Verse.
       Chorus - use fret-hand muting by alternately releasing pressure on
       the chord.  The accents indicate when the chord sounds through (i.e.,
       when it should be fretted).

Key:
    |.  = dotted quarter note
    |   = quarter note          }    = quarter rest
    _|  = single eighth note
    |_| = eighth notes          %    = eighth rest
    |=| = sixteenth notes

    V   = big accent            v    = moderate accent

Poets priests and politicians
Have words to thank for their positions
Words that scream for your submission
Noone's jamming their transmissions


When their eloquence escapes me
Their logic ties me up and wrecks me
