I believe this is tuned a half step down, but you can play it in standard tuning 
and it sounds fine.  Simple tune, sounds good acoustic.

[Intro Verse 1] (quiet)
       G                    D         Am 
I was walking along on the ocean,
          G               D           Am
I felt a fever burning up all I am,
          G                      D
'Cause if there's one thing that I can't stand,
      Am                  C        G
It's standing next to my fellow man.
        D         Am
Ah-ah-ah. Ah-ah-ah.
              Am      D
It's about to break.  Oh.


[Verse 2]
        G                    D                  Am
For the social worker at the needle exchange.
        G                      D                Am
For the self-medicated and the hard deranged.
        G               D                       Am
For the lesbians at the bakery,
        G              D                        Am
Saying, "Do you really hate me?"

              G       D Am
It's about to break.


[Chorus 1] (loud)
             G        D Am
Break like a fever.
              G       D Am
It's about to break.
             G        D Am
Break like a fever.


[Verse 3] (loud)
       Em                       D                 Am
People looking for themselves inside of mirrors.
    Em          D                                 Am
For not knowing why you're here.
    Em                        D                   Am
The public appearances on the verge of tears.
            Em                  D                 Am
When you're all played out from weed and beer.


[Bridge]
Am
Stand up let me get a look at you.
D
Can't we all take a wider view?
(x2)


[Verse 4] (starts quiet, grows)
        G                 D                 Am
For the evangelist with a stinger-missile,
G            D                              Am
Weapons hot, thinking this will,
         G                D                 Am
We won't make them follow orders,
    G               D                       Am
For Doctors Without Borders.
(Am)
About to break.
              D
It's about to break.

[Chorus 2] (loud)
(Break Like a fever.)
G               D                Am           C
When I see your face, I wanna be in the human race. (Break like a fever)

G              D                  Am             C
You're beautiful it's true, I want to be beautiful like you. (Break like a fever)
G               D                Am           C
When I see your face, I wanna be in the human race. (Break like a fever)
G              D                  Am             C
You're beautiful it's true, I want to be beautiful like you. (Break like a fever)
      G                       D               Am
For a teenage mother with the baby asleep, (Break like a fever)
    G             D                           Am
For Africa, where life is cheap.

[End] (quiet)
    G                          D              Am
For losing faith in who you're going with,
G             D                               Am
America fades into myth.
