A5                                 A riff
It was 3 AM when I heard the sound
                                         E riff
Stuck my head outside and I looked around
D
In the echo the car alarms ringing
                                                F#m F#m(maj7)
The sense that something terrible had happened again
        F#m7               B    F#m F#m(maj7)
Cut the lights and put the TV on
         F#m7           B
And they said that Michigan was gone
Bm       E
Gone for good

                            D   A
And now I'm waiting for the big boom
   E               F#m
It knows where I'm gonna be
    D   A
The big boom
    E
I'm always getting closer to
    D   A
The big boom
       E          F#m
And it will catch up to me
    Dmaj7 Dm(maj7)
The big   boom

A riff

There are few safe places left today
                                         E riff
Every night they come and take one away
D
Early on we believed we had a chance
                                          F#m F#m(maj7)
Now there's no one who thinks that way anymore
        F#m7             B           F#m F#m(maj7)
And the infrastructure's coming down
        F#m7            B
And the government went underground
Bm       E
Gone for good

                            D   A
And now I'm waiting for the big boom
   E               F#m
It knows where I'm gonna be
    D   A
The big boom
    E
I'm always getting closer to
    D   A
The big boom
       E          F#m
And it will catch up to me
    Dmaj7 Dm(maj7)
The big   boom

Bridge

A5                                 A riff
Only move by night, only move alone
                                         E riff
Keep the fires low and stay off the phone
D
Keep on moving or stay right where you are
                                             F#m F#m(maj7)
What's the difference, it's only a matter of time
    F#m7           B          F#m F#m(maj7)
And one by one the cities fall
           F#m7        B
Soon there won't be anything at all
Bm       E
Gone for good

                            D   A
And now I'm waiting for the big boom
   E               F#m
It knows where I'm gonna be
    D   A
The big boom
    E
I'm always getting closer to
    D   A
The big boom
       E          F#m
And it will catch up to me
    Dmaj7 Dm(maj7)
The big   boom
