Hi Everyone! Heard this song on a commericial and I wanted to learn how to play it badly 
but saw no one posted the chords on here sooo here they are ear transcribed. Not the 
best but I think it'll work!;)


Capo 2 (to match song)



[Intro]

Am C G D (4x) (You can kind of play around with the D like go back and forth 
quickly from D to D2 or even Dsus4)


[Verse 1]

Am         C             G
I'm waking up to ash and dust
          D                   Am
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust
              C      G(Pause! Wait for inhale exhale to be over)
I'm breathing in the chemicals
Am           C           G                 D         
I'm breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
Am      C            G
This is it, the apocalypse
D(Pause!)
Whoa


[Chorus]

           Am            C
I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
G                 D
Enough to make my systems grow
Am                    C
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
G                     D
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Am    C         G            D
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive
Am    C         G            D
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive  (Continue Am C G D through the rest of the song!)


[Verse 2]

Am         C             G
I raise my flags, don my clothes
          D                   Am
It's a revolution, I suppose
            C      G
We're painted red to fit right in
Am           C           G                 D         
Whoa
        Am
I'm breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
        C            G
This is it, the apocalypse
D(Pause!)
Whoa


[Chorus]

           Am            C
I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
G                 D
Enough to make my systems grow
Am                    C
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
G                     D
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Am    C         G            D
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive
Am    C         G            D
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive


[Bridge]

All systems go, sun hasn't died

Deep in my bones, straight from inside


[Chorus]

           Am            C
I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
G                 D
Enough to make my systems grow
Am                    C
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
G                     D
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Am    C         G            D
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive
Am    C         G            D
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive

I think the word is "blow" not "grow."

they actually play it acoustically, using these chords in open. so you don't have to have a capo unless your playing along with the record
