[Verse 1]

   C
Trouble travels fast
                                    Am
When you’re specially designed for crash testing
                                      Em
Or wearing wool sunglasses in the afternoon
                                 F
Come on and tell us what you’re trying to prove

                 C                        
Because it’s a battle when you dabble in war
                    Am
You store it up, unleash it, then you piece it together
                   Em
Whether the storm drain running rampant just stamp it
                   F
And send it to somebody who’s pretending to care

      C                      
Just cash in your blanks for little toy tanks
              Am
Learn how to use them, then abuse them and choose them
              Em
Over conversations relationships are overrated
    F
“I hated everyone” said the sun

               C                
And so I will cook all your books

You’re too good looking and mistooken
           Am
You could watch it instead
                                  Em
From the comfort of your burning beds
                                F       G+ 
…Or you can sleep through the static


[Chorus]

C         Em*           Am
Who needs sleep when we’ve got love?
F          G*         C
Who needs keys when we’ve got clubs?
C         Em*           Am
Who needs please when we’ve got guns?
F         G*            C
Who needs peace when we’ve gone above
      C      Em*                   Am
But beyond where we should have gone?
         F      G*                    C
We went beyond where we should have gone


[Verse 2]

C                   
Stuck between channels my thoughts all quit
                Am
I thought about em too much, allowed them to touch
                   Em
The feelings that rained down on the plains all dried and cracked
F
Waiting for things that never came

               C
well Shock and awful thing to make somebody think
                          Am
That they have to choose pushing for peace supporting the troops
                  Em
And either you’re weak or you’ll use brut force-feed 
                 F
The truth is we say not as we do

          C                              
We say anytime, anywhere, just show your teeth and strike the fear
   Am
Of God wears camouflage, cries at night and drives a dodge
Em
Pick up the beat and stop hogging the feast
           F
That’s no way to treat an enemy

             C 
Well mighty mighty appetite
              
we just eat ‘em up and keep on driving
Am                                                           Em
Freedom can be freezing take a picture from the pretty side
 
Mind your manners wave your banners
                  F                         G+
What a wonderful world that this angle can see


[Chorus]

    C          Em*         Am
But who needs  sleep when we've got love?
F         G*         C
Who needs keys when we've got clubs?
C         Em*          Am
Who needs please when we’ve got guns?
F         G*           C
Who needs peace when we’ve gone above
    C      Em*                   Am
But beyond where we should have gone?
        F      G*                    C
we went Beyond where we should have gone
        C      Em*                   Am
We went beyond where we should have gone
F      G*                    C
Beyond where we should have gone 


[Outro]

C
Oh Jesus, I love You  And I love Buddha too
F
Ramakrishna, Guru Dev  Tao Te Ching and Mohammed
C
Why do some people say  That there is just one way
F
To love You, God, and come to You?  We are all a part of You''

C
Is the universe Your thought?  You are and You are not
F
You are all, and You are One  Ever ending, just begun
C                 F                                   C
Alright, alright, alright  I love You and Buddha too, Alright

Thanks again so much! I like that you add the videos you TAB from, I like being able to watch strum and picking patterns for a lot of Jack's songs! Thanks very much, can't wait to see what's next! :)
