Intro:
    E  D D  G G  A A
  E E  D D  G G  A A  
  B(P.M.)

Outro:
  E E  D D  G G  A A  
  E E  D D  G G  A A  
  E E  D D  G G  A A
  A(P.M.)  
  B let ring

Verse:
            E               D           G             A
1) There's a boy in crimson rags with a grimace and a spoon

         E             D            A              B
   and a little sullen girl face-up staring at the moon

               E         D               G        C(P.M.)
   And there's no one around to hear the lonesome cries 

             D(chunk)
   Then they pass away alone into the night

Following the same pattern:
 2)Well you've seen the disease, suffering and decay
   and you whisper to yourself blissfully "It's okay"
   and you still refuse the possibility
   That the dead are better off than we

 3)In the end you may find there's no guiding subtle light
   no ancestors or friends, no judge of wrong and right
   Just eternal silence and dormancy
   And a final everlasting peace

Prechorus: EE DD AA 

Chorus:
 E    B C  D        E
 Why do we pity the dead?

         E          B    C           D              A
 Are you churned by emotion from the voices in your head
 (Are you scared of the logic that swirls within your head  -> Chorus (2) )

 E               C                 G            D 
 Look at all the living and you'll ask yourself why

  Chorus(1):
       E   G  D          
    Oh why do we pity the dead?

  Chorus(2):
       E   G  D           C  D             E
    Oh why do we pity the dead? Pity the dead  

  Chorus(3)
       E   G  D                      
    Oh why do we pity the dead? 

        E   G  D           
    why do we pity the dead? 
 
        E   G  D        C  D            
    why do we pity the dead? 

              E
    Pity the dead

Bridge(2):
 C       D        E    C       D        E
 Tell me what you see, tell me what you know

 G(P.M.)                     D(P.M.)
 Is there anyone who lives a painless life?

    C(P.M.)   D(P.M.) E(P.M.)
 If there is, show   me so

     E     E       E      E(*)  E     E       E      D        
 The destitute and famished, demonic and the banished
   (*) 2nd guitar plays E one octave higher and arpeggiated


 E        E       E       E(*)      E           E       E      D
 dejected and the ostracized, the brainwashed and the paralyzed
   (*) 2nd guitar plays E one octave higher and arpeggiated

     E             C                G               D
 the conquered and objectified, the few who see the other side

C       D        E
Tell me what you see

       G(P.M.) D(P.M.)   C D E(all 3 chords P.M.)
It's a mortal wretched cacophony  - Let's go...
