There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This was the only song I had any trouble figuring out on my own because of the unusual
chords and progression, so I decided to go ahead and make an account and put this up.

A few notes:
  >I'm not sure if the G is always played as a dominant seventh chord, but the two are
pretty interchangable anyway.

  >The Em is always played as an Am shaped bar chord on the 7th fret and the Am that
comes after it is played on the 5th fret, while the C before the Em is easiest to play on
the 8th fret or the 3rd fret as a bar chord.  If the Am follows the E major then you 
just play a regular open E and Am.

  >On the diminished chord, if you keep your fingers in the same shape but move your
fingers up 3 frets every beat you get that cool ascending arpeggiated chord sound they do
on that measure.

  >The walk up part right before the second verse is a G7 arpeggio.  If you can't play
it just keep playing the G7 until the verse.


C   Cdim
C   Em  Am
E   Dm

C                         Cdim
Come get your hands on it brother (my brother)

    C             Em     Am
the chance won't come again, (no no no)

E                               Dm
Follow your neighbors lead get everything a man could need

with a card in the palm of your hand

C                           Cdim
Come get your hands on your mother

C     Em        Am
everything must go, (no no no)

E                                 Dm
Fur coats, and diamond rings, and giant plasma tv screens.

You owe it to yourself don't you know?

E                      Am
(repeat E and Am once per line for the next 3 lines)
so put your faith in the plastic my friend,
your dreams are a swipe away.
Don't you worry where the bounty comes from

if you do it might haunt you one day

F                               Fm             C            C7
When the sun comes up and it's burning in the sky

F                       Fm               G7
Rest assured that it's dark on the other side

C                                Cdim
The stores are boarding up their windows

       C        Em         Am
as the shopping malls cave in

E                        Dm
everything in chaos now, someone screaming tell me how can

we spend our money my friend

C                    Cdim
I tell em go build a castle,

C       Em      Am
lock it up real tight

E                            Dm
with nothing left to consume can't you see we're clearly doomed

and the world just might hear tonight

Half Time:
E                     Am  (repeat)
recession, depression call it what you will,
we're the victims of our own greed.
With cheaters for leaders our own empty dreams

will come back as nightmares ..

Even halfier time:
             Dm               E        Am
G       F
But there's a clearing in the fog that might just be hope up ahead

      Dm              E               Am       G
     D7/F#(or just D/F#)
If we hurry, there's a chance, we could make it through to the end

   Dm                        G7
So tell me my friends was it worth what you spent?

Instrumental Break:
C   Am (x3)

         F                     Fm             C           C7
When the sun comes up and it's burning in the sky

F                      Fm                G7
Rest assured that it's dark on the other side, side side.

The end is those crazy G7 arpeggios ascending followed by a C arpeggio descending.

Good luck!
