World Leader Pretend
From the Album “Green”

BmAdd4 x-2-4-4-3-0


[Intro]
Em Bm Em Bm Em Bmadd4 G A
(the G and A are only a half measure each)

[Verse 1]
D               G  
  I sit at my table
C           D         D
  and wage war on myself
       G               C 
  It seems like it's all,
                D
  it's all for nothing
D             G         
  I know the barricades,
C                D             D
  and I know the mortar in the wall breaks
       G                  
  I recognize the weapons,
C      D
  I used them well

[Chorus 1]
Em  Bm
  Em              
  This is my mistake.
  Bm
  Let me make it good
Em                 
  I raised the wall,
      Bm            Bmadd4              G A
  and I will be the one to knock it down

[Verse 2]
D                    G        
  I've a rich understanding of
      C        D       
  my finest defenses
  D                G                 C    
  I proclaim the claims are left unstated,
       D
  I demand a rematch
D        G             
  I decree a stalemate,
C      D
  I divine my deeper motives
D                  G     
  I recognize the weapons
C                     D
  I've practiced them well. I fitted them myself

[Chorus 2]
  Em                       
  It's amazing what devices
  Bm
  you can sympathize (empathize)
  Em                  
  This is my mistake.
  Bm 
  Let me make it good
Em                 
  I raised the walls,
      Bm            Bmadd4              G A
  and I will be the one to knock it down

[Bridge]
Am               C
  Reach out for me 
         Am                       C
  and ho-old me tight. Hold that memory
         Am                 
  Let my machine talk to me.
      C           G         A
  Let my machine talk to me

[Verse 3]
D          G     
  This is my world
      C        D
  and I am the world leader pretend
D          G    
  This is my life
C       D
  and this is my time
D              G   
  I have been given
        C        D            D
  the freedom to do as I see fit
        G       
  It's high time
     C                    D
  I razed the walls that I've constructed

[Chorus 3]
  Em                        
  It's amazing what devices
  Bm
  you can sympathize (empathize)
  Em                 
  This is my mistake.
  Bm 
  Let me make it good
Em                   
  I raised the walls, 
      Bm            Bmadd4              G A
  and I will be the one to knock it down

[Chorus 4]
  Em                   
  You fill in the mortar.
  Bm
  You fill in the harmony
  Em                   
  You fill in the mortar.
Bm 
  I raised the walls
      Em              
  And I'm the only one,
  Bm            Bmadd4              G A Em
  I will be the one to knock it down
