(Antichrist Television BLues)
The Arcade Fire
1-866 NEON BIBLE

Kind of a long song, strummy and use hammer ons 0h2 on the D string.

G
I don't wanna work in the building downtown
No I don't wanna work in the building downtown
C
I don't know what I'm gonna do
G
Cause the planes keep crashing always two by two
D
I don't wanna work in the building downtown
      C                                             G
No I don't wanna see when the planes hit the ground

G
I don't wanna work in the building downtown
I don't wanna work in the building downtown
C
Parking their cars in the underground
G
Their voices when they scream, well they make no sound
D
I wanna see the cities rust
C
and the troublemakers riding on the back of the bus

G
Dear God, I'm a good Christian man
In your glory, I know you understand
C
That you gotta work hard and you gotta get paid
G
My girl's thirteen but she don't act her age
D
She can sing like a bird in a cage
C                                                       
Oh Lord, if you could see her when she's up on that stage!

G
You know that I'm a God-fearing man
You know that I'm a God-fearing man
C
Well I just gotta know if it's part of your plan
G
To seat my daughters there by your right hand
D
I know that you'll do what's right, Lord
         C                                      G
For they are the lanterns and you are the light


C               G
   Now I'm overcome
C                   G
   By the light of day
C                        G
My lips are near but my heart is far away
C                   G
   Tell me what to say
C
       I'll be your mouthpiece!

G
Into the light of a bridge that burns
As I drive from the city with the money that I earned
C
Into the dark of a starless sky
          G
Well I'm staring into nothing and I'm asking you why:
D                                 C
Lord, let me make her a star So the world can see who you really are?

G
Little girl, you're old enough to understand
That you'll always be a stranger on a strange, strange land
C
The men are gonna come while you're fast asleep
G
So you better just stay close and hold on to me
D
If my little mockingbird don't sing
C
Well then daddy won't buy no diamond ring

G
Dear God, would you send me a child?
Oh God! would you send me a child?
C
Cause I wanna put it up on the TV screen
G
So the world can see what your true word means
D
Lord, would you send me a sign?
C                                               G
Cause I just gotta know if I'm wasting my time!


C               G
   Now I'm overcome
C                   G
   By the light of day
C                        G
My lips are near but my heart is far away
C                   G
   Now the war is won
C
   How come nothing tastes good?

[Solo Break]

G C G D C


G
Oh! You're such a sensitive child!
You know you're such a sensitive child!
C
I know you're tired, but it's alright
G
Just need you to sing for me tonight
D
You're gonna have your day in the sun
C
You know God loves the sensitive ones

G
Oh! my little bird in a cage!
Oh! my little bird in a cage!
C
I need you to get up for me, up on that stage
G
And show the men that you're old for your age
D
Now ain't the time for fear 
C
But if you don't take it, it'll disappear!

G
Oh! my little mockingbird sing!
Oh! my little mockingbird sing!
C
I need you to get up on that stage for me, honey
G
Show the men it's not about the money
D
Wanna hold a mirror up to the world
C
So that they can see themselves inside my little girl!

G
Do you know where I was at your age?
Any idea where I was at your age?
C
I was was working downtown for the minimum wage
G
And I'm not gonna let you just throw it all away!
D
I'm through being cute, I'm through being nice
C
Oh tell me, Lord, am I the Antichrist?!
