Tabbed by drewsta42@gmail. Requests and comments welcome.

Just play powerchords. Otherwise, it's Dm and Am, not D and A.
If you want to get fancy, for the F at the end of the main riff,
play this:

D-2-1-2-1-2-2
A-2-2-2-2-2-2
E-1-0-1-0-1-1



Intro/Chorus
 F C D
  oh-way-ah-hoo-whoah
           A Bb 
 oh-way-ah-hoo-whoah
           G F
 oh-way-ah-hoo-whoah  (play this much a bunch of times)

then
D C D Bb F

Verse
                     F
 We were born in the desert
 D                   A
 we were reared in a cave
 Bb                  F
 We conquered in the sun
 D                   A
 but we lived in the shade
 Bb                F
 Yeah baby we were savage
 D             A
 we existed to kill
 Bb             F
 Our history is damaged,
 D                 A
 at least it was a thrill

Verse II
               C
 But now we can see!
 D            G
 Now that our vision is strong
 A       C
 We dont have to
 D             G
 Admit we were wrong!
 A          C
 Now we can see
 D        G                 
 but the images don't stick
     A                       Bb
 Our enemies lay dead on the ground
 and still we kick!

Chorus (main riff)
 Now we can see
 The warnings and the signs
 Reading between the lines like writing on the wall
 Now we can see!
 What do we need?
 We should need nothing, nothing at all!

D C D Bb

Verse chords

 We were born on an island
 we grew out of the sand
 Never saw another creature
 Never knew another man
 Yeah baby we were nothing
 we existed for less
 Our present was empty
 our history a mess

Verse II chords

 But now we can see
 Now we do as we please
 Now we do away with our disease
 Now we can see
 Now the image sticks!
 We still need the medicine quick
 We still take the pill
 But only for the fix! Hey!

Main riff chords for the solo

Chorus again
 Now we can see
 The warnings and the signs
 Reading between the lines like writing on the wall
 Now we can see!
 What do we need?
 We should need nothing, nothing at all!

Main riff
 oh-way-ah-hoo-whoah
 oh-way-ah-hoo-whoah
 oh-way-ah-hoo-whoah  x2

D C D Bb
 Yeah, now we can see!

End on F.


Yeah, so, sweet song. Stays in your head pretty much forever though.
