[Verse 1]

E              A
 I am a simple man
E                   B
 I've seen kingdoms span
E                   A
 I've seen empire's rise and fall
            E                 B
And turn my diamonds all into sand
E
 I scorned the body
    A
The flesh the bloody
              E                 B
And tossed my money on down the drain
E                           A    
 I thought I'd feel so much lighter than air
        E                   B
When I abolished my earthly chains

[Chorus]

    A                 B
But something more is calling me
      E        B         A
And I think my eyes can see it
  A                  B
I think my hands can touch it

[Verse 2]

          E          A
So asking you, Lord above
E                       B
 As you pile the plates up
E                         A
 You gave them bread, you gave them water
         E                                  B
Then you told them what they could and they couldn't touch
E
 I scorned desire
    A                       E               B 
But now the fire is growing higher into the sky
     E                       A
So I refuse to simply lock myself away 
             E                    B
And let this heaven on earth pass by

[Chorus]

           A        B       
There's no glory in greed and want
            E       B       A
But there's none in poverty either
          A                      B
Like they give you salvation and damnation
           E
And I take neither

[Chorus]

  A                        B
I once said it's not about riches or rags
    E     B     A 
And now I do remember
           A                            B
That these puddles of wax won't give me candles back
          E             B     A    
And won't keep you warm in December
         A
So we'll storm the castle
            B
Declare the kingdom rich
       E         B          A 
And do away with slaves and masters
          A                       B
No longer do we want the sleep of eternity
               E
To come 'round faster
E       E       E  
Faster, faster, faster....
A
