No capo Intro Gm D# Bb Cm Bb D# x4 Gm D# Your class, your caste, your country, sect, your name or your tribe Bb Cm There's people always dying trying to keep them alive Bb Cm His body's decomposing in containers tonight D# In an abandoned building where (the same chords) A squatter's made a mural of a Mexican girl With fifteen cans of spray paint in a chemical swirl She's standing in the ashes at the end of the world Four winds blowing through her hair Cm F Cm F But when great Satan's gone, the whore of Babylon D# Bb D# Bb She just can't sustain the pressure where it's placed Cm She caves Interlude: Gm D# Bb Cm Bb D# (now the same chords) The Bible's blind. The Torah's deaf. The Qu'ran is mute. If you burned them all together you’d get close to the truth Still they’re pouring over Sanskrit under Ivy League moons While shadows lengthen in the sun Cast on a school and meditation built to soften the times And hold us at the center while the spiral unwinds It's knocking over fences, crossing property lines Four Winds cry until it comes It's the Sum of Man slouching towards Bethlehem A heart just can't contain all of that empty space It breaks. It breaks. It breaks. Well I went back by rented Cadillac and company jet Like a newly orphaned refugee retracing my steps All the way to Cassadaga to commune with the dead They said, "You'd better look alive" And now it’s off to old Dakota where a genocide sleeps In the Black Hills, the Badlands, the calloused East I buried my ballast. I made my peace. Her Four Winds leveling the pines But when Great Satan's gone, the Whore of Babylon She just can't remain with all that outer space Cm F Cm F Gm She breaks. She breaks. She caves. She caves.
