The strumming pattern is changing now. Watch the song on youtube to get this. (Not that hard)

Verse 1:

Trouble travels fast
C                                Am
When your specially designed for crash testin'
Wearin' wool sunglasses in the afternoon
C'mon, tell us what you're trying to prove
It's a battle when you dabble in war

You stole it up,
Unleash it,

Then piece it together
Whether storm drain random, stamp it,
Send it to somebody pretendin to care
Just cash in your blanks

For little toy tanks
Learn how to use them and abuse them

and choose them over
Conversations, relationships,are overrated
i hated everyone said the sun
so will cook all your books
your too good lookin and mistooken
you could watch it instead from the comfort
of your burning beds
                                 F           G
well you could sleep through the static

     C         C/B        Am
Well who needs sleep when we got love
    F         G*         C
and who needs keys when we've got clubs
    C         C/B         Am
and who needs police when we've got guns
    F         G*          C      
and who needs peace when we've gone above
    C      C/B                   Am
but beyond where we've should've gone
          F    G                  C     
we went beyond where we should've gone

VERSE 2 (Exactly played like Verse 1) :

Stuck between channels my thoughts all quit
i Thought about them too much
allowed them to touch
the feelings of rain down on the planes
all dried and cracked
waiting for things that never came
well such a shocking thing to make somebody think
they have to choose pushin for peace
suportin the troops
and either your weak
or you use brute force feed
truth is say not as we do
ya say anytime, anywhere
just show your teeth
and strike a fear
God wears camouflage
cries at night
and drives a dodge, pick up
the beat, stop hoggin the feast
thats no way to treat an enemy
Mighty, mighty appetite
we'll just em up
and keep on drivin'
freedom can't be freezed
take a picture from the pretty side
min d your manner
wave your banners
what a wonderful world this angle can see

CHORUS (again) (exactly played like shown above)

This Part comes after the Chrous. 
(Strumming pattern is changing again completly)
It goes like: Down Up Hit Up Down Up Hit (Happy sounding strumming)

Oh Jesus i love you and i love Buddha too
Ramakrishna, Guru Dev

Tao Te Ching and Mohammed
Why do people say
that there is just one way to 
love you God i come to you

we are all apart of you
is the universe your thought

you are and you are not
you are all and you are non

every end or just begun


I love you and Buddha too 

  (Last C let ring out)

Alright! So have fun with that! :-)
