[Verse 1]

B5                    B5
  This is the Ministry, Of Defence
B5                    B5
  Stairs and walls are, all that's left
B5                B5
  Mortar holes let, through the air
B5                      B5
  Kids do the same thing, everywhere

[Chorus 1]

G5                        D5
  They’ve sprayed graffiti, in Arabic
A5                   F#/A#
  And balanced sticks,    in human shit

[Verse 2]

B5                    B5
  This is the ministry, of remains
B5                  B5
  Fizzy drinks, cans, and magazines

[Chorus 2]

G5            D5
  Broken glass, a white jawbone
A5                F#/A#
  Syringes, razors,    a plastic spoon
G5          D5
  Human hair, a kitchen knife
A5                     F#/A#
  And a ghost of a girl,    who runs and hides
E5                        E5         B5  B5
  Scratched in the wall in, biro pen
E5               E5
  This is how the, world will end

[Sax Solo]

B5  B5  B5  B5     B5

[Verse 3]

B5                     B5
  There’s the bus depot, to the right
B5               B5
  Leveled like a, a building site

[Chorus 3]

G5                        D5
  Those are the children's, cries from the dark
A5                   F#/A#
  These are the words,    writ under the arch
G5                     D5
  Scratched in the wall, in biro pen
A5               F#/A#               B5  B5
  This is how the,    world will end
