  Believe it's true,  we were never meant to fly
G           Bm           F#           D

G            Bm         A
  And I will not let it go

| D  A |  Bm  |  G  |  A  |


Riff#1
           D      A          Bm   ( Bm_A_G )
They will not remember this song
G                                 A
  No matter what we do we'll be wrong
           D      A          Bm
They will not remember this song
G                               A
 No matter what we do we'll be wrong


Verse (Riff#2)
D                A                  Bm
I can't seem to see the seal we're breaking, I can't seem to see the seal we broke
G                          A
I refuse to recognize your views,
D                A                Bm
Someone shouted "Everything's for nothing", somebody shouted, "All is lost"
G                             A
But I can't buy that nonsense too
D                  A                Bm
 Way back when the prophecies began, do you think they really had a master plan
G                             A
 Or were they merely writing fables, stories?
D                     A                Bm
 I don't know but it has occurred to me, the punishment that they threaten constantly
G                              A               (A)
 It's only real if they could just convince me


              D          Bm         G        A
We're going down, down, down to Mephisto's Cafe
  D          Bm         G        A
Down, down, down to Mephisto's Café. We're going down !
D                                Bm                   G                    A
And the gears will spin and the sinners sin, but at least we'll give them hell
         D                   Bm             G             A
And the righteous few will spit on you, so bid them all farewell
              D          Bm         G        A
We're going down, down, down to Mephisto's Cafe
             D           Bm          (B_A_G_F#_A~)
We're going down (Right?)  (Right!)


Verse (Riff#2)
     D         A       Bm
So fuck the flocks of sheep that keep amassing masses
G                         A
Asses being led so far astray
D                     A                       Bm
And I won't claim to believe the things I read, black books or agenda magazine
G                             A
 I'd rather see in shades of gray


Bridge (Same as intro)
G            Bm F#        D
  If I were you, I would take this as a sign
G               Bm  F#        D
  Believe it's true,  we were never meant to fly
  --->(Acapella)or same  the end of the intro part (see above)<---
And I knew you when you were you

Before they twisted all your views

Before you came unglued


Chorus
              D          Bm         G        A
We're going down, down, down to Mephisto's Cafe
  D          Bm         G        A
Down, down, down to Mephisto's Café. We're going down !
D                                Bm                   G                    A
And the gears will spin and the sinners sin, but at least we'll give them hell
         D                   Bm             G             A
And the righteous few will spit on you, so bid them all farewell
              D          Bm         G        A
We're going down, down, down to Mephisto's Cafe
             D           Bm          B_A_G_F#_A~
We're going down (Right?)  (Right!)

(Riff#1) until bridge
D          A              Bm         Bm_A_G
 Now everybody's telling taller tales
                   G_G#_A
And I don't know who to believe
   D           A            Bm           Bm_A_G
Ok, if your father really loves you more
                G_G#_A
What about the other families?


D      A    Bm                Bm_A_G                  G_G#_A
 Finally, I met a man with kindness in his eyes and fire in his heart
D                A              Bm          Bm_A_G
 He said you'll never have to choose a side
                   G_G#_A
It's rewarding but oh, the road is hard....


D               A           Bm
 They broke him   wide open
                 Bm_A_G               G_G#_A
Like a dam and a cork that's holding everything inside
D          A               Bm
 You can play the role of rebel
   Bm_A_G             G_G#_A
Just be sure to know your wrong from your right


Bridge
D                   A
 I remember it was years ago
         F#                 G
You know I still count the days
D                       A
 You and I had quite a ways to go
         F#                 G
I never once heard you complain

And you said
D A F# G
D A F# G~

D        A                  Bm                 G_A
 Don't crack, because you might not make it back
    D                  A                Bm                    G_A
And if you do you will be alone and you    can't live like that
         D             A          Bm                  G_A       D   A   B_A_G_F#_A
Well I know when I'm wrong and I sure as hell ain't wrong this time


Chorus
              D          Bm         G        A
We're going down, down, down to Mephisto's Cafe
  D          Bm         G        A
Down, down, down to Mephisto's Café. We're going down !
D                                Bm                   G                    A
And the gears will spin and the sinners sin, but at least we'll give them hell
         D                   Bm             G             A
And the righteous few will spit on you, so bid them all farewell
              D          Bm         G        A
We're going down, down, down to Mephisto's Cafe
             D           Bm          B_A_G_F#_A~        D
We're going down (Right?)  (Right!)
