This song is quite easy to play although the solo may 
take time to get used to all the bends.
It starts with the words "The country was founded on 
the principle that the primary role of government is to 
protect property from the majority-and so it remains."


E5
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh


Verse (with SOME string muting-guitar w/distortion)


G#
Hello it's us again,
E
We're still so in love with you,
B5
And yes we mean it to,
F#
We're still so in love with you.
G#
Hello it's us again,
E
You thought you were our friends,
B5
Success is an ugly word,
F#5
Especially in your tiny world....


Chorus (")


G#
The masses,

Against the classes, I'm
B5
Tired of giving a reason, when the
F#5
Future is what we believe in.
G#
We love the winter, it
E
Brings us closer together,

Aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh


Verse (Same as previous verse)


So can you hurt us anymore,
Can you feel like it was before,
Or are you lost forever more,
Messed up and dead on alcohol,
Hello fond farewell my dear,
I hope you hear this nice and clear,
Our love is unconditional,
Our hate is yours to feed upon....


Chorus (Same as previous chorus)


E5
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

The masses
Against the classes,
I'm tired of giving a reason,
When the future is what we believe in,
We love the winter,
It brings us closer together.


E5
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh


Now there's lots of horrible but brilliant feedback, 
a bit of guitar as well but just mess around. That's what James did. 
Unless anyone can tell me how he plays it?

Anyway, this all happens when James says "The slave begins by 
demanding justice and ends by wanting to wear a crown."
