[Intro]

[Verse]
D The nazis that we hired

For our wedding band
G Played your anthem like

I wasn’t there for the

Father/daughter dance
D From the boondocks of

Egypt to the

Nosebleeds at Calvary
G Recite your history of

Oppression, babe,

While you are under me
[Chorus]
Am There’s no doubting the devotion

G D
My ancestors had for yours
Am Now we’ve got all the love to pay for
G D
Like a thousand different wars
[Instrumental] D D D D x2 [Verse]
D A square foot of empire

Around the peep show slot
G I see an avatar of mercy with the

Same damn jeembles that I got
D The boss wants to be anonymous The talent wants to be seen G We weren’t paying for

Your body, Lord
We were paying you to leave [Chorus] Am Now, who will watch the

Chorus line stretching from

G D
Reno to Rome
Am Listen, Cherry, I know

You love me, but say

G D
you love me before you go
[Instrumental]
C D D C D D

D D D D [Verse]
D Val Kilmer had a wall-length

Mirror just over there
G Well, I’m sure

He’s someone else now
But he was Batman when

He lived here
D Maybe he’s Yankee Zulu

Just waiting for the flood
G And maybe Mac the

Conqueror with the

Severed head of love
[Chorus]
Am I’ve seen him wearing aviators and a
G D
black baseball hat
Am Stalking airports across the bardo quiet
G D
As a wildcat
[Instrumental]
D D D D
D D D D
[Verse]
D The wheel is turning

From night into day
G Everything’s in transition Everything must change D But none of us here will

Ever see the promised land
G None of us here will be there

For childhood's end
[Chorus]
Am I see ya, you student
G D
Debtors in the watchtower overhead
Am Searchin' for headlights in the driveway G D Crying "Dad, look what they did" Am Just look G Even their romance made us
D
Masters and slaves
Am And now things keep getting

Worse while staying

G D
So eerily the same
Am Come build your burial grounds

On our burial grounds
G D But you won’t kill death that way [Outro]
Am I don’t know about you,

But I’ll take the love songs
G D And give you the future in exchange
Am I don’t know about you, but

I’ll take the love songs
G D If this century’s here to stay Am I don’t know about you, but

I’ll take the love songs
G D And the great distance that they came [Outro]
Am Am G D
