Verse 1:

It's like seeing a car crash from inside the car
                                                              G A D E*
The driver's got his head craned back he's telling you a joke
                                      
You see the bus on collision course
                                                            
You point your arm and turn your head and wait for the impact
G    A  B   C                   D                  G       F# G
This is the feeling we learn to live with in North America
             C                D                         E*
The morning headlines always accompanied with sweat and nausea
G                  C                 A                      C     G A D E*
Every week another puzzle piece gets permanently glued into place


Verse 2:

We see the iceberg from 15 miles away
                                                 G F# F E
The captain orders the ship to "stay the course"

"Full speed ahead" shouts the accurst

The next thing we heard was, "rich women and children first"
G   A    B  C                      D                     G      F#  G
The ship is listing, the captain's placing blame on the iceberg
           C                 D                    E* (E G A B)
"That berg attacked us, I am declaring war on the Arctic"
G                   C                      A                    C
Who could ever have predicted the greatest ship could so easily sink (duh)


Solo: Really Fast Scales with lots of pull offs.
I've found it's best to improv with wah pedal and Pentatonic scale in Eminor: (no wah pedal? do some bendys)

Verse 3:
E                             C
Lifeboats are useless without rescue
D                          G         F#
The only ships show up for salvage
E                        C
When setting sail on the St. Louis
D                      G       F#
We all knew what consequences 
      E                              C
Could be with the crew we had at the controls
        D                         G     F#
There's no harborage for the USA-holes
  E                             C
I doubt there's a benign God to save our souls
           D                           G     F#
Cuz no one else is gonna save the USA-holes
