There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
this is my first tab but it sounds perfect to me


verse-
C
Trouble travels fast 
                                   Am
When you’re specially designed for crash testing 
                                  G
Or wearing wool sunglasses in the afternoon
                                F
Come on and tell us what you’re trying to prove 

C
Because it’s a battle when you dabble in war 
                 Am
You store it up, unleash it, then you piece it together 
                  G
Whether the storm drain running rampant just stamp it
               F
And send it to somebody who’s pretending to care 

C
Just cash in your blanks for little toy tanks 
             Am
Learn how to use them, then abuse them and choose them 
     G
Over conversations relationships are overrated 
 F
“I hated everyone” said the sun 

              C
And so I will cook all your books 

You’re too good looking and mistooken 
Am
You could watch it instead 
                                      G
From the comfort of your burning beds 
                                     F
…Or you can sleep through the static 

chorus-

C         G          Am
Who needs sleep when we’ve got love?
 F        G         C
Who needs keys when we’ve got clubs?
 C        G           Am
Who needs please when we’ve got guns? 
F         G          C
Who needs peace when we’ve gone above 
    C      G                   Am
But beyond where we should have gone? 
   F    G                          C
We went beyond where we should have gone 

verse- same as above

Stuck between channels my thoughts all quit 
I thought about them too much, allowed them to touch 
The feelings that rained down on the plains all dried and cracked 
Waiting for things that never came 

Shock and awful thing to make somebody think 
That they have to choose pushing for peace supporting the troops 
And either you’re weak or you’ll use brut force-feed the truth 
The truth is we say not as we do 

We say anytime, anywhere, just show your teeth and strike the fear 
Of god wears camouflage, cries at night and drives a dodge 
Pick up the beat and stop hogging the feast 
That’s no way to treat an enemy 

Well mighty mighty appetite 
we just eat ‘em up and keep on driving 
Freedom can be freezing take a picture from the pretty side 
Mind your manners wave your banners 
What a wonderful world that this angle can see 

chorus-

C                G        Am
But who needs to see what we’ve done? 
F         G           C
Who needs please when we’ve got guns? 
C         G         Am
Who needs keys when we’ve got clubs?
F         G          C 
Who needs peace when we’ve gone above 
    C      G                    Am
But beyond where we should have gone? 
F      G                    C
Beyond where we should have gone 
        C      G                    Am
We went beyond where we should have gone 
F      G                    C
Beyond where we should have gone


guitar solo out from here but you can just end with C,G,A, F,G,C with the
same rythym as the last line and play each chord once

I like it! I think the G in the verses should e replaced with Em. Also, "beyond where we should have gone x2" replace the first and third G with Em. I play uke so it might be different on guitar. Really good!
