Am G F E E7 (Use E7 in the transition)(x2)
Am G E...

 
 Am      G        F     C  C/B
Blacktop pavement cover me
       Am                      Dm           F              G
Like a chemical reaction or a steamroller, spreading randomly
           Am       G          F      C
There's a distant buzz and low frequency
    Am        G             F        C   C/G
It tickles my ears, rumbles under my feet
         Dm        Dm/F           C      G
And it shakes the leaves off of every tree
F    C   G
Vio-lent-ly
        Am        G           Dm
What pretention! everlasting peace
   F F/F#  G   G/G#   Am
  Eve-ry-thing must cease


Am G F E E7 (x2)
Am G E


Am      G       F     C   C/B
In-sti-tu-tion 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 shadow stain on the west facade
        Am           G          F         C   C/G
It has spread like decay to enshroud the fraud
         Dm   Dm/F          C     G    F  C   G
and the descendents find it oh so odd, oh so odd
        Am        G           Dm
What pretention! everlasting peace
   F F/F#  G   G/G#   Am
  Eve-ry-thing must cease


Am G F E E7 (X2)
Am G E


Am       G       F          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    C/G
What was once is reduced to rememberence
        Dm          Dm/F         C    G
And the generations pass without recompense
F   C    G
Oh- Oh - Ohh

      Am        G           Dm
What pretention everlasting peace
   F F/F#  G   G/G#  
  Eve-ry-thing must...   cease.

Am G F E E7 (x4) 
end with Am.
