An Open Letter To The North American Continent

[Intro]

E E A B

E E A B

[Verse 1]

E             B                       C#m
  Continental, make a better man of me 
             C#m              A   
You sold the words, put us in herds 
            B            E
But that'll never set us free 
                          B
My dreams, collecting dust, break down 
                         C#m
Like the faith I never found 
                        A
And you never helped me up 
        B             E*
But you always let me down 

(I'm going to call this E*)

A                   B              E*
  We're supposed to delight in your will 
A              B             E
  While you're stalking your prey 
             B             A   
Some sort of spit-shine salvation 
              B                E
That'll never see the light of day 

E A B

[Verse 2]

     C#m
Some friends went to jail 
     A
Some finally came clean 
        E
But you slept in sandcastles 
         B
And woke up in between 
    A                   B
And clarity came in the spring 
        A              B
With salvation waiting in the wings 
    E 
Guesswork and 80 miles 
           B              
You sought sainthood in the ceiling tiles 
          C#m                           A      E
While the messenger was shooting up downstairs 
        E
But who cares what they said? 
    B
You contemplated being dead 
    C#m
But decided against it 
     A                 B
After hard drugs and religion 
    C#m                     A
An aluminum empire that you built with both hands 
   E                       B
An upside-down cross and a line in the sand 
      A             B                       E                       
And I still haven't written the rest of the words 

E A B
