Em Em Em Em C Am 
Em Em Em Em D C
Em Em Em Em C Am 
Em Em Em Em D C
Em Em Em Em


[Verse 1]

Em
This isn't a dream don't know why you don't care
Em
See your face in a photograph, you say you weren't there
      C                Am
You say, "I wasn't there,"
                       Em
You say, "I wasn't there."

Em
This is a storm and this is the warning
Em
This is a war and this is it forming
C                       Am
Still feels like no one cares
                        Em
Still feels like no one cares


[Pre-chorus]

C
Anything you wanna keep
B                     D#   Em
Otherwise go back to sleep


[Chorus]

Em           Bm              C       Am
There's some things we don't want to see
    Em          Bm       C        Am   
While the world burns we warm our feet
G          Em             C          Am
Old men in bed by ten, the joke's on me
Em           Bm        C
Nothing left now but a memory

Em Em Em Em C Am
Em Em Em Em D C
Em Em


[Verse 2]

Em
Shot by the pig with the badge and the gun
Em
Killed by an elephant, and not just the one
C                       Am
Maybe we should burn it down
                   Em
We should burn you down

Em
Poor little pharmacy who lit in a fire
Em
Mister commissioner why don't you retire?
           C        Am
We're gonna burn it down
                        Em
We're gonna burn it all down


[Pre-chorus]

C
Anything you wanna keep
B                     D#   Em
Otherwise go back to sleep


[Chorus 2]

Em           Bm              C       Am
There's some things we don't want to see
    Em          Bm       C        Am   
While the world burns we warm our feet
G          Em             C          Am
Old men in bed by ten, the joke's on me
Em           Bm              C       Am
There's some things we don't want to see
    Em          Bm       C        Am   
While the world burns we warm our feet
G          Em             C          Am
Old men in bed by ten, the joke's on me
Em      Bm    C
Nothing but a memory
