Am G Am C G Am G
Fired forty rounds in the centre of town, he thought to bring the world around
C G Am G
Sleepless nights with god and christ, the new messiah.
Burn the world to change the days, can be done in better days
Am C G Am G
To make the news and front page you gotta aim higher.
Am G Am
They didnt build Jerusalem, they couldn't find the land
G Am G Am
And for reasons of security, they couldn't find the plans
And we're left standing watching from below
G C G Am D
No new songs and no new heroes
Standing on the corner watching the flow
G C G Am G
Waiting for the day the circles broken
Took the mic to save the day
The rock star's going to have his say
Interpret this in any way as if it matters
Cos nothing's black and nothing's white
Nothing appears to be quite right
It'll be this way until the day the circle's shattered
I heard an old song yesterday
About a better world
You know the story, they're all the same
The boy gets the girl
From the tips of your fingers
The rest is numb
You begin to feel the warmth of the sun
It's slipping away been taken away
All you once knew
Taking it back takes all you've got
No time to sit and let it rot
Believe it's yours and not all the lies
Or all hell to you
