This is not in the right key but it's how I play it acoustically and the 
chords sound great, and you could always use a capo to adjust it.

Enjoy!


The chords:

Am     [x 0 2 2 1 0]
G      [3 2 0 0 0 1]
F      [1 3 3 2 1 1]
C      [x 3 2 0 1 0]
C/B    [x 2 0 0 1 0]
E      [0 2 2 1 0 0]
Dm     [x x 0 2 3 1]



Am G   F C   x2

Am G E


Am       G         F    C     C C/B
Blacktop pavement cover me

       Am                     Dm               F             G
Like a chemical reaction or a steam roller   Spreading randomly

          Am      G               F     C
There's a distant buzz and a low frequency

    Am        G                F        C
It tickles my ear, it rumbles under my feet

        Dm                       C     G       F  C  G
And it shakes the leaves off of every tree    (violently)

        Am        G           F            
What pretension! Everlasting peace

F    G           Am
Everything must cease


Am G   F C   x2

Am G E


Am   G      F      C     C C/B
Institution on the Hill

       Am                       Dm              F               G
Like a beacon in the mind of an ancestor   To ignite a people's will

           Am       G            F     C
There's a shadowed stain on the west facade

         Am          G         F          C
It has spread like decay to enshroud the fraud

         Dm              C     G      F  C  G
And the descendants find oh so odd   (oh so odd)

        Am        G           F
What pretension! Everlasting peace

F    G           Am
Everything must cease


Am G   F C   x2

Am G E


Am      G       F          C     C C/B
Grave memorial hewn white stone

         Am                     Dm             F                    G
Like the comforting caress of a mother   Or a friend you've always known

    Am         G           F   C
It evokes such pain and significance

Am                 G          F    C
What was once, is reduced to remembrance

         Dm                       C   G         F    C    G
And the generations pass without recompense   (aaah aaah aaah)

        Am        G           F
What pretension! Everlasting peace

F    G           (Am)
Everything must (cease)

These chords are wrong. The chords played acoustically is:
Am, G, F, E in the whole song. You can use a capo on 2nd fret too, which that is what the real way is supposed to play.
