[Verse 1]
C                                   F             C
we must talk on every telephone get eaten off the web
C                                        F                  G 
we must rip out all the epilogues from the books that we have read 
C                                 F
and to the face of every criminal strapped firmly to a chair
C                           G              C
we must stare, we must stare, we must stare

C                                    F                C
we must take all of the medicine too expensive now to sell
C                               F            G
set fire to the preacher who is promising us hell
C                                     F
and in the ear of every anarchist that sleeps but doesn't dream
C                     G             C
we must sing, we must sing, we must sing

it'll go like this alright

F               G                C                F
While my mother waters plants my father loads his gun
F                          G                 Am               F
he say death will bring us back to god, just like the setting sun
G                              C
is returned to the lonesome ocean

C F   x3

[Verse 2]
C                                   F               C
we must blend into the choir sing a static with the whole
C                              F              G 
we must memorize nine numbers and deny we have a soul
C                                         F
and in this endless race for property and privilege to be one
C                       G            C
we must run, we must run, we must run

C                                        F                  C
we must hang up in the belphry where the bats and moonlight laugh
C                                     F             G 
we must stare into a crystal ball and only see the past
C                                               F
and into the caverns of tomorrow with just our flashlight and our love
C                             G               C
we must plunge, we must plunge, we must plunge

And then we’ll get down there, way down to the very bottom of everything
And then we’ll see it, oh we’ll see it, we’ll see it, we’ll see it

F              G               C                   F
oh my mornings coming back the whole world's waking up
F                  G                 Am          F
this city bus swimming past i'm happy just because 
G                         C
i found out that i'm really no one


C F   x3

almost perfect. the only error i see is in the chorus. It should go:

F G Am F

If you listen to the song with this in mind you hear it. it gives an oomph to 'just like the setting sun' and 'i'm happy just because'

good job!

Watch the youtube video of him playing it on Kilborn

It seriously looks like plays this in the chorus:

F C Am F
F C Am G
