INTRO: Am G Am C G Am G Am 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. Am G 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 G Am And we're left standing watching from below G C G Am D No new songs and no new heroes G Am 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
