            Verse 1:
Em                        G
This is a song that came upon me one night 
          Am
When the news it had been telling me 
       C                D
About one more war and one more fight
      Em 
And 'aeh' I sighed but then
     G
I thought about my friends
         Am
Then I wrote this declaration
         C              D
Just in case the world end
 


           Verse 2:
Our guns
Em             G
 We shot them in the things we said
        Am
Ah we didn't need no bullets 
         C            D
Cos we rely on some words instead 
Em
Kill someone in argument
G
Outwit them with our brains 
          Am
And we'd kill ourselves laughing
         C                D
At the funny things we'd say 



           Verse 3:
And bombs 
Em              G
  We had them saved for special times
          Am
When the crew would call a shakedown 
     C            D
We break down a party landmine 
Em
Women that so sexy 
        G
They explode us with their looks 
         Am
Ah we blowing up some speakers 
          C              D        
Jumping round till the ground shook 



           Verse 4:
And missiles
Em                   G
   They were the roadtrips that we launched
       Am
T-t-tripping across this island 
            C              D
Starting missions at the break of dawn
 Em
Yawn and smile say 
        G
What direction shall we take? 
Am
Somewhere where it warm and wet 
C                        D
This be the route we'd always take and 



           Chorus:
Am                      Em
  Our weapons were our instruments 
G           D          C
Made from timber and steel 
              Am
We never yielded to conformity 
      Em
But stood like kings 
        G
In a chariot that's riding on a 
   D
Record wheel

            Verse 5:
           Em
And our airforce flying 
            G
When the frisbee in the sky 
         Am
Have a session while we're smoking
             C           D
Now we're feeling extra high 
          Em 
And we'd sneak into a carpark
            G
With the skaties on our back 
            Am
And we're flying down the levels howling 
         C                D
On the attack now on the attack



           Verse 6:
And battles 
Em                   G
  They happened in these dancehalls 
           Am
See we'd rather fight with music
    C               D
Choosing one the rhythm war
Em
Battle at these shakedowns 
         G
And we battle at these gigs 
        Am
We do battle in our bedrooms 
            C                D
Made some sweet love to the beat 



           Bridge:
           Em
Then our allies grew 
     G
Wherever we would roam 
        Am 
See whenever we're together 
        C             D
Any stranger feel at home 
      Em
In a way we are an army 
          G
But this army not destruct 
      Am
No instead we're doing simple things
       C             D
Good loving find it run amuck 



           Verse 7:
Em
This be a declaration 
   G
Written about my friends
        Am
It's engraved into this song 
         C               D
So they know I'm not forgetting them 
      Em
See maybe if the world contained
 G
More people like these 
          Am
Then the news would not be telling me
       C                   D
About all that warfare endlessly and

Am                      Em
  Our weapons were our instruments 
G           D          C
Made from timber and steel
