INTRO - Am Dm Am X2
******
--------------------------------------------------
VERSE 1
********
           Dm
A wise man once said
            C        
A flower is only
         F            
A sexual organ
          G             
Beauty is cruelty
        Am                  
And evolution
           G             
A wise man once said
     Dm                          G           F       G          
that everything could be explained with mathematics
       Dm                     
He had denied
    F                          
His feminine side
    G                   F       
Now where is the wisdom in that
                                          
--------------------------------------------------
Bridge
*******
  Am                           E     
I came just as fast as I could
                    Am               
Through the dirty air
                 Dm             
Of your neighbourhood
     Am                      E  
Your name on a grain of rice
                  F        
Hangin' around my neck
                          
And a head like lead
                             
--------------------------------------------------
Chorus
*******
G                F                
This is the 21st century
  Dm                         Am                                
I heard everything they said
    G          F                   
The Universe demystified
Dm                Am              
Chemicals for God
G                F       Dm  Am
This is the 21st century
                                     
--------------------------------------------------
VERSE 2
********                                  
                Dm          
A wise man once wrote
             C            
That love is only
       F           
Primal instinct
         G                     
For reproduction
        Am               
Natural selection
           G          
A wise man once said
     Dm                  C                               
That everything could be explained
         Am                 F                    
And it's all in the brain

--------------------------------------------------
Chorus
*******
G                F                                                   
This is the 21st century
  Dm                   Am             
I heard everything you said
    G          F                
The universe demystified
Dm          Am                       
Astronomy instead
G                F                     
This is the 21st century
          Dm                  Am           
Can't you get it through your head
     G                   F            
This aint the way it was meant to be
Dm          Am                          
Magic isn't dead
        G     F            
Come to bed
     Dm     Am           
Come to rest

--------------------------------------------------
Bridge
*******                             
E
    Am                   E
And rest your heavy head my love.


(Am E Am Dm E Dm)
    
    Am            E          
And slowly, from above
               C                 Dm                      E       
She showed the answer's  something that can't be written down

--------------------------------------------------
Chorus
*******
G                F             
This is the 21st century
Dm                    Am              
Splash to crash and burn
    G                       F        
But nobody's gonna give you anything
    Dm                Am                    
For nothing in return
          G           F                  
There's a man up in a mirrored building
    Dm                 Am               
And he just bought the world
          G                             
Would you want
         F                      
Your own kids
        Dm                           
Growing up
                    Am            
Into what's left of this
              G      F           
She shook her head
          Dm            Am       
She said "Can't you see
             G    F  
The world is you
             Dm   Am     
The world is me.
                         

Nice easy Acoustic song to play too. Enjoy...........
