B5When success is equated with excess

A G DMaybe I'm just a little misinformed
~INTERLUDE~ Dsus2 D5 ~VERSE 2~
D F#mAs the dead moon rises and the freeways sigh
Bm Bb ALet the trains watch over the tides and the mist
G DSpinning circles in our skies tonight
F#m BmLet the trucks role in from Los Angeles
Bb A G D Dsus2Maybe our stars are unanimously tired
~CHORUS~
Bm G DLet your love be strong and I don't care what goes down
