 A Moment Of Silence
Streetlight Manifesto

[Intro]

Em      C       D
Em      C       B
Em      C       D
Em      C       B

[Chorus]

           Em                   C           D
A moment of silence, please, for those who never get the chance
Em                           C              D
They show up to the party, but they're never asked to dance
Em                                C        D
The losers, the liars, the bastards, the thieves
Em                                            C                 B
The cynicists, the pessimists, and those that don't believe in nothing

[Horn Riff]

Em    C     D
Em    C     D 
Em    C     D
Em    C     B

[Verse]

Em                  C                      D               Em  
I never met a loser that I didn't see eye-to-eye with, I declare
C              D
I stare into your eyes
Em             C                 D
But you look right past me into the air
Em             C                D
What's it like to stand in your shoes?
Em                          C             B
To have never felt the belt of somebody's abuse?
Em                    C                          D
I take the bottle and I tip it for all my heroes that have passed
Em                        C              D
Alas, you have left us, but your stories they will last
Em                 C         D
Uninspired by the recruiting call

              Em
Independent we stand
Em  C  B
Independent we fall

[Trombone Solo]

Em      C      D  
Em      C      D
Em      C      D
Em      C      B
B       B 

[Pre-Chorus Verse]

 Em                         C                           G
So tell me how long do you think you can go before you lose it all?
D
Before they call you bluff and watch you fall?
Em            C
I don't know, but I'd like to think I had control
G              D
At some point, but I let it go and lost my soul


[Chorus]

           Em                     C
Sit tight, but the revolution's years away
G                            D
I'm losing faith and I'm running low on things to say
Em                      C
So, I guess I have no choice but to regurgitate
G                            D
The tired anthem of a loser and a hypocrite

         Em           C          G              D
Oh! To have died that night, I realized it wouldn't last
Em                        C
Our days were numbered and the reaper tipped the hourglass
 G                        D
The final mayday of our sinking ship had come and passed
Em     C           G                        D                  
Oh! To the west, you don't know what it is you're running from
Em                C
And everybody's laughing loud
G                                                 D
Last chance to make your mother and your father proud
Em  C   D   Em  C  D  Em C  D    Em     C  B  
Oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Em  C   D   Em  C  D  Em C  D    Em     C  B  
Oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh


[Chorus]

           Em                   C           D
A moment of silence, please, for those who never get the chance
Em                           C              D
They show up to the party, but they're never asked to dance
Em                                C        D
The losers, the liars, the bastards, the thieves
Em                                            C                 B
The cynicists, the pessimists, and those that don't believe in nothing


[Horn Riff]

Em     C      D
Em     C      D  
Em     C      D
Em     C      B


[Verse]

            Em               C                D
They said "a pox, upon your house, upon your family 
      Em                C                D
And everyone you knew, and everyone you'll ever meet"
   Em                    C               D
I bet they think we wish we joined when we could
Em                          C        B
But we do what we want, we don't do what we should
Em    C                      D
Now, everybody's laughing, 'cause they're thinking they're

in on something I don't get
Em
Don't forget
C             D
I connect and I read every word you said
Em               C            D
Like a child who believes he was wronged
Em                           C     B
If you hate me so much, then stop singing my songs

[Sax Solo]

Em      C       D
Em      C       D
Em      C       D
Em      C       B
B          B

[Pre-Chorus Verse]

 Em                         C                           G
So tell me how long do you think you can go before you lose it all?
D
Before they call you bluff and watch you fall?
Em            C
I don't know, but I'd like to think I had control
G              D
At some point, but I let it go and lost my soul


[Chorus]

           Em                     C
Sit tight, but the revolution's years away
G                            D
I'm losing faith and I'm running low on things to say
Em                      C
So, I guess I have no choice but to regurgitate
G                            D
The tired anthem of a loser and a hypocrite

         Em           C          G              D
Oh! To have died that night, I realized it wouldn't last
Em                        C
Our days were numbered and the reaper tipped the hourglass
 G                        D
The final mayday of our sinking ship had come and passed
Em     C           G                        D                  
Oh! To the west, you don't know what it is you're running from

Em  C   D   Em  C  D  Em C  D    Em     C  B  
Oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

Em  C   D   Em  C  D  Em C  D    Em     C  B     Em
Oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
