The same pattern basically applies in the first verse to these following chords:

     Dm*    C'*    F*     C*     Gm*
e ---5------8------1------3------3------|
B ---6------8------1------5------3------|
G ---7------9------2------5------3------|
D --------------------------------------|
A --------------------------------------|
E --------------------------------------|

Dm*                                        C'*
So amused, the six street peddlers come to sing your blues
    Dm*                                     C'*
And money spent, to damn the rivers of your discontent
F*                                        C*
You got your invitation to the bachelor's ball
Gm*                       C*                         F*
And you stay out till the sun comes creeping up your bedroom wall

Dm/A / / / | Dm/A / / / | Dm/A / / / | Dm/A / / / |

Dm/A                                    F
Ivory tower, you sit and while away the idle hours
Dm/A                                        C
Skin and bones, the city streets below just weep and moan
F                                             C
But from your window above, you only hear the rain
Bb                            C                               F
You touch the world through a glove, it's so much easier than feeling pain

Bb                    F             C       Bb
And they're inventing hunger in the grey of dawn
Bb        F               C       Bb
As I sit among your parliament of pawns
Bb           F            C     Dm
Just growing younger with every yawn

           C            F           C      Bb
And in the ashes of the cities that you've burned
              C               F
We'll sit and wait for your return

Dm/A                                     F
So composed, wake on the floor in your designer clothes
Dm/A                                           C
And so refined, you think the country's just a state of mind
F                                                    C
Switch like a switchblade my love, cut the young men down
Bb                        C                           F
You've been to heaven above, but your feet have never touched the ground

Bb                 F          C     Bb
And we brought you roses in eternal bloom
Bb              F                 C     Bb
While you stand before us in your royal gloom
Bb        F             C      Dm
Holding a torch to your silver spoon

           C            F           C      Bb
And in the ashes of the cities that you've burned
              C               F
We'll sit and wait for your return

Outro:  |: F / / /|F / / /|Bb/ / /|C / / / :| (x6 times)

                           ~end on F
