[Verse 1]
                          C       Csus2 Am
It got too hot and so we overthrew the system
                  C         Csus2 Am                  D
'Cause there's no place for human existence like right here
         F          Bsus4  C     Csus2 Am
On this bright blue marble orbited by trash
             C  Csus2   Am
Man, there's no beating that
              Em6                                 Am Am/B D D/E
It was no big thing to give up the way of life we had
Am Am/B D
Oh ho oh
[Verse 2]                    
                      C       Csus2   Am
My social life is now quite a bit less hectic
    C              Csus2 Am               D
The nightlife and the protests are pretty scarce
             F        Bsus4      C             Csus2 Am
Now I mostly spend the long days walking through the city
C       Csus2 Am
Empty as a tomb
            Em6                C
Sometimes I miss the top of the food chain
                        Am Am/B D D/E 
But what a perfect afternoon

Am Am/B D 

Industry and commerce toppled to their knees
The gears of progress halted

The underclass set free
The super-ego shatters with our ideologies
The obscene injunction to enjoy life

Disappears as in a dream
And as we return to our native state

To our primal scene
The temperature, it started dropping

The ice floes began to freeze

Am Am/B D D/E
Am Am/B D D/E
Am Am/B D D/E
Am Am/B D

[Verse 3]
                         C   Csus2 Am
From time to time we all get a bit restless
            C     Csus2 Am           D
With no one advertising to us constantly
                     F      Bsus4
But the tribe at the former airport
    C              Csus2 Am
Some nights has meat and dancing
                  C        Csus2 Am
If you don't mind gathering and hunting
                Em6                          C
We're all still pretty good at eating on the run

Things it would have been helpful to know before the revolution

Am Am/B D D/E
Am Am/B D

[Verse 4] 
                           C   Csus2  Am
Though I'll admit some degree of resentment
                C   Csus2 Am              D
For the sudden lack of convenience around here
                   F           Bsus4     C        Csus2 Am
But there are some visionaries among us developing some products
   C      Csus2  Am              D
To aid us in our struggle to survive
        Em6                             C
On this godless rock that refuses to die
