Song: Room Without a Window
Band: Operation Ivy
Album: Energy (1989)
Written by Jesse Michaels, Lint Armstrong, Matt Freeman and Dave Mello
Transcribed by Luke Knox (lukeknox@iname.com)

Intro/Verse/Toast break chords used:
   G   D   C   F

Chorus chords used:
   Bb  F#  F

      G                     G                        G
The position being taken is not to be mistaken for attempted
   D         G                     G                   G
education or righteous accusation. Only a description, just
                       G          G         G     G    G  G
an observation of the pitiful condition of our degeneration.

[Verse:](played with ska upstrokes)
C                               F                  G
Walls made of opinions, through which we speak and never
           C                      F                G
listen. Ceiling made of pride, vicious and self-satisfied.
C                         F                G      C
Door that's made of rage, hard and slowly aged, always
                     F            G
closing tighter with every war we wage.

        Bb                    F#        F    Bb
In this room without a window can't see out. Room without a
           F#             F
window, Can't see out! Can't see out!

C                              F            G
Floor is made of lives, we'll gladly end to stay inside.
C                            F                G
Corners made of borders, and borders made of law and order.
C                             F              G
Painted with the words of politicians and religion,
C                                  F           G
plastered with the wreckage of our cultural division.


[Toast break:] (C - F repeated.)
Ha ha ha ha ha   Oh, we so stupid!  Killing each other.
Don't we learn nothin'?
[Bridge:](2x) (continue C - F)
Got a room inside our minds, yeah we gotta, we can't see out because
we're blind, but I got to choke. Gotta make ourselves drink (all right)
from a room without a window to a different way to think.


Then play the verse chords, with the words from the chorus.
End on a C.

That's it! I hope this sounds right to you. E-mail me with any comments, etc.
