[Verse]

D#mThe world is an overflowing gutter
BIt bubbles with the brine of shit and blood
G#mAnd those who keep their eyes upon the heavens
B A# EAre the ones that end up faces down in the mud
D#mIt's easy to speak of grand ambitions
BIts easy to pretend your innocent
G#mBut lest you get distracted by the suffering of your sister
B A#7 EBeing practical and trying to pay the rent
[Chorus]
B D#mHeaven has been promised to the righteous
G#m F#Hell's an overpopulated pit
C# A#7 D#m A#Purgatory's given to the dreamers
B A#7 D#mBut the world belongs to those who plow the shit
[Verse] There's a special place in hell for fancy talkers
BThere's a special place in heaven for the whores
G#mThere's a throne reserved for those with good ideas
B A#7Stolen by the demagogues who wanted more
D#mThe flowers and the laces in the market
BAre all purchased by the peddlers of the flesh
G#mBut those who bring relief and carnal pleasure
B A#7Sometimes serve the needs of mankind for the best
[Chorus]
B D#mCast off the limitations of the righteous
G#m F#There are good deeds only devils can commit
C# A#7 D#m A#Let us dance between the teardrops and the angels
B A#7 D#mFor the world belongs to those who plow the shit
[Bridge]
B G#mAt last the supreme maker decreed that this creature
BTo whom he could give nothing wholly his own
Should have a share
A#7 D#mIn the particular endowment of every other creature
Taking man therefore this
D#mCreature of indeterminate image
BHe set him in the middle of the world
G#mAnd thus spoke to him
BWe have given you, oh Adam
A#7No visage proper to yourself
D#mNo endowment properly your own
In order that
BWhatever price, whatever form, whatever gifts you may with
Premeditation select
G#mThese same may you have and possess
BThrough your own judgement and decision
A#7We have made you a creature neither of heaven
D#mNor of Earth!
Neither mortal
D#m Nor immortal!
BIn order that you may
G#mAs the free and proud shaper of your own being
Fashion yourself in the form you may propose
B A#mIt will be in your power
D#mTo descend to the lower brutish forms of life
BYou will be able through your own judgement and decision
G#mTo rise again to the superior orders
B A#7Of life is divine!
[Verse]
D#mThe dead become the emperors of memory
BThe saints have all been eaten by the worms
G#mThe living will write a twisted future
B A#7And the sinners all have practical concerns
D#mThe sentinels with rifles on the border
BOf the pretenses of charity are swept
G#mOh but let's not talk of slipping into nightmares
B A#7For the day is run by those who haven't slept
[Chorus]
B D#mSo throw away the vestments of the righteous
B D#mMake sure the body almost lovely fits
C# A#7 D#m A#The souls are taken flight now from the birdhouse
B A#7 D#mAnd the world belongs to those who plow the shit
