Verse 1:  

(You can use the progression above or play the natural chords as on the chart)


C
Somethin' filled up
Am
my heart with nothin',
F                      C
someone told me not to cry.


C
But now that I'm older,
Am
my heart's colder,
F                         C
and I can see that it's a lie.


C              Am             F             C
Oh             Oh             Oh



C
Children wake up,
Am
hold your mistake up,
F                                C
before they turn the summer into dust.


C
If the children don't grow up,
Am
our bodies get bigger but our hearts get torn up.
F
We're just a million little gods causin' rain storms turnin' every good thing to 
C
rust.
                           
C             Am             F             C
I guess we'll just have to adjust.

(I still need to tab the next section but here are the lyrics)


With my lightnin' bolts a glowin'
I can see where I am goin' to be
when the reaper he reaches and touches my hand.

With my lightnin' bolts a glowin'
I can see where I am goiní
With my lightnin' bolts a glowin'
I can see where I am, go-go, where I am

You'd better look out below
