Dm7                 Gm7
Is there anyone who ever remembers
C                        Dm7
Changing their mind from the paint on a sign?
Dm7                 Gm7               C
Is there anyone who really recalls... ever breaking record of...
Dm7
For something someone yelled real loud one time

Belief is a beautiful armor.  But makes for the heaviest sword
C                             Dm7
Like punching under water.    You never can hit who you're trying for
Dm7                           Gm7
Some need the exhibition.     And some have to know they tried
C                             Dm7
It's the chemical weapon.     For the war that's raging on inside

Tab published following a member's request for the bass line...
I believe this tab will be suitable to start learning the song...

So enjoy and rate...

Author's note about the Chorus :
pretty sure that Pino Palladino plays D / G - D / C

Have a careful listen to the song (doubling the G doesn't seem to work)...
and compare with my own correction below...
Any other ideas please let me know..
???
