This is a Streetlight Manifesto cover of the Bad Religion song "Skyscraper". The chords 
are a lot easier to hear in their version... Quality tune. Enjoy


G#   A
come let us make bricks
    E         B   C
and burn them hard,
C#m           A           E             B
we'll build a city with a tower for the world
    E               B
and climb so we can reach
C#m             A
anything we may propose,
E  B        A
anything at all

         C#m         B
build me up, tear me down
       A         E
like a skyscraper,
         C#m     B
build me up, and tear down
      G#      A
these joining walls
   E          B        A
so they can't climb at all
   C#m        B        A
so they can't climb at all

G#           A       E                 B   C
yeah, I know why you tore it down that day,
C#m               A
you thought, that if you got caught
E            B
we'd all go away,
       E              B
like a spoiled little baby
    C#m                A
who can't come out and play,
E       B     A
you had your revenge


         C#m         B
build me up, tear me down
       A         E
like a skyscraper,
         C#m     B
build me up, and tear down
      G#      A
these joining walls
   E          B        A
so they can't climb at all
   C#m        B        A
so they can't climb at all


(instrumental)(It's just the chords for the verse then the chorus...)


     E
well madness reigned

and paradise drowned
     B
when Babel's walls came a-crashing down
        C#m
now the echoes roar

a story writ
         A
that was hardly understood
    E     B   A
and never any good


             C#m         B
so, build me up, tear me down
       A         E
like a skyscraper,
         C#m     B
build me up, and tear down
      G#      A
these joining walls
   E          B        A
so they can't climb at all
   C#m        B        A
so they can't climb at all
