A  A2  E  E7  D  D2  E7sus  E7 (x4)
 
          A    A2       E    E7  D  D2  E7sus  E7 
Cast your eyes into the distance 
       A A2        E   E7  D  D2  E7sus  E7 
Try to focus on it all 
       A  A2       E    E7  D  D2  E7sus  E7 
Find a spirit of resistance 
           A     A2         E    E7  D  D2  E7sus  E7 
Instead of pride before the fall 
F#m                   D 
Forge some opposition 
     F#m               D  E  
From disparate strands 
             A     A2  E    E7  D  D2 
It ain't the prettiest position 
     E7sus   E7   A  A2  E  E7  D  D2  E7sus  E7 
As a century ends
 
  A  A2      E E7   D  D2  E7sus  E7 
Unstable situation 
A     A2      E   E7  D  D2  E7sus  E7 
Faces made of wax 
A          A2      E     E7  D  D2  E7sus  E7 
Streams of melting glass 
A         A2        E     E7  D  D2  E7sus  E7 
Sheets of butchered facts 
    F#m                 D 
The roar of the machine 
       C#                 C#7   D   E 
Hooded hearts and jeweled hands 
    A     A2       E        E7           
And anger spilling out like gasoline 
F    G            A* 
As a century ends 

E                 B     D                  A* 
Everything I seen, everything that I heard 
      E           B       D       A* 
Ain't even the tip of the iceberg 
F                     G 
Fire down memory lane 
   D                               E 
So pass me my rose tinted glasses again 

F#m  D  F#m  D  E  A  A2  E  E7  D  D2  E7sus  E7
 
          A   A2       E   E7  D  D2  E7sus  E7 
Through a fog of contradiction 
           A  A2   E     E7  D  D2  E7sus  E7 
Out to the lake of tears 
      A       A2         E     E7       D  D2  E7sus  E7 
See society admiring its own reflection 
        A          A2     E        E7    D  D2  E7sus  E7 
Chase a light that shines and disappears 
       F#m                 D      F#m             D  E 
Now be careful what you say cause reality offends 
         A    A2           E    E7    D  D2 
Just sit back and let your soul decay 
     E7sus   E7         
As a century ends
 
A  A2  E  E7  D  D2  E7sus  E7 (x4)
 
        A       A2  E     E7  D  D2  E7sus  E7 
And its easy to get weary 
       A        A2     E    E7  D  D2  E7sus  E7 
As you fight to get it done 
          A   A2  E      E7  D  D2  E7sus  E7 
‘Gainst a popular theory 
          A   A2          E E7       D  D2  E7sus  E7 
That it's over 'fore it's even begun 
           F#m                 D 
Strain the limit of compassion 
       C#               C#7    D    E 
Tend a wound that never mends, ohhh 
         A  A2           E   E7
And honesty still out of fashion 
F    G            A*
As a century ends
F    G            A*
As a century ends
F    G            A*
As a century ends

F  G  A* (Repeat & Fade)
