Intro: Asus2, A#/Bbsus2, Em

   Em   
I listen to a lecture of nonsense till dawn 
       Bm
By a plagiary poet with dark glasses on
         Am
He said "how did you ever dream up that song?
     Bm            B       Em
The one where the baby dies."

              Em
I said "I'll tell you the secret which one's your good ear?
        Bm
Yeah, people are made up of water and fear
          Am
If there weren't women present we wouldn't be here
    Bm        B              Em
So lets make like we're friends"

        Em
And the pot turned to powder and soured the mood
         Bm
And the people I'd come with were gone from the room
      Am
So I asked like a child "may I be excused?"
  Bm     B           Em
And disobeyed them all

           Em
Into that late night latrine rain soaking through my shoes
   Bm
I tried walking backwards to get less confused
   Am
Working off a theory I could never prove
             Bm     B        Em
That it was life itself to blame

     Am               Em
And time ruined the world
        Am         Em
Like a failed revolution
   Am                  Em
A tumor we could not remove
       Csus2       Bm           Em
An old friend, a constant, the blues


Em, Asus2, A#/Bbsus2 x2


        Em
Now my days are distractions, sit wringing my hands
  Bm
Solitaire, crosswords, and films on demand
          Am
When you turn from a cartoon back into a man
              Bm          B      Em
You start to smell that human smell

           Em
And so I sleep with the fan on to drown out the street
         Bm
And the noise rising up from the bar underneath
          Am
Well for that inconvenience all my drinks are free
       Bm        B        Em
So I guess it's just as well

          Em
Why do I envy the ending right from the start
     Bm
Just get it together to take it apart
 Am
Watching the horse as it follows the cart
   Bm          B        Em
I sweep up my broken spell

       Am                          Em
And I felt something changing the world
        Am       Em
Like a new constitution
    Am                   Em
A thief I would have to pursue
       Csus2          Bm          Em
At all times, at all costs, the truth

Em, Asus2, A#/Bbsus2
Em, Asus2, A#/Bbsus2, Bsus2
Em, Asus2, A#/Bbsus2, Bsus2, Csus2
Em, Asus2, A#/Bbsus2, Bsus2, Csus2, C#/Dbsus2
Em, Asus2, A#/Bbsus2, Bsus2, Csus2, C#/Dbsus2, Dsus2
End on: Em

Great job. I was glad to see this song on here. A few things: I'm pretty sure the "Csus2" chords should just be regular "C" chords, and the "Asus2 - Bbsus2" progression I think should just be "A5 - Bb5", meaning just power chords. I just am not hearing the sus2's in the recording. But either way sounds fine, nice work.
