--Intro--
Gm    Eb     Bb    Cm
Bb    Cm     Eb    Eb
 
 
     Gm                                           Eb
Your class, your caste, your country, sect, your name or your tribe
        Bb                            Cm
There's people always dying trying to keep them alive
          Bb                       Cm
There are bodies decomposing in containers tonight
     Eb                  Eb
In an abandoned building where
 
    Gm                          Eb
The squatters made a mural of a Mexican girl
     Bb                               Cm
With 15 cans of spray paint in a chemical swirl
      Bb                           Cm
She's standing in the ashes at the end of the world
     Eb
Four winds blowing through her hair
 
 
               Cm      F                            Cm  F
But when great Satan's gone,           the Whore of Babylon
         Eb       Bb                 Eb         Bb
She just can't sustain, the pressure where it's placed
    Cm      (Cm)         F          (F)
She caves            She caves...
 
 
--Interlude--
Gm    Eb     Bb    Cm
Bb    Cm     Eb    Eb
 
 
    Gm                                   Eb
The Bible's blind, the Torah's deaf, the Qu'ran is mute
       Bb                                 Cm
If you burned them all together you'd get close to the truth
               Bb                          Cm
Still, they're pouring over sanskrit under ivy league moons
             Eb               (Eb)
While shadows lengthen in the sun
 
 
          Gm                            Eb
Cast on a school of meditation built to soften the times
    Bb                              Cm
And hold us at the center while the spiral unwinds
     Bb                             Cm
It's knocking over fences, crossing property lines
          Eb             (Eb)
Four winds, cry until it comes
 
 
             Cm     F                              Cm    F
And it's the Sum of Man,         Slouching towards Bethlehem
             Eb       Bb                     Eb    Bb
A heart just can't contain,      All of that empty space
   Cm    (Cm)    F      (F)
It breaks,    it breaks...                     It breaks!
 
 
--Interlude--
Gm    Eb     Bb    Cm
Bb    Cm     Eb    Eb
 
 
            Gm                          Eb
Well I went back by rented Cadillac and company jet
       Bb                       Cm
Like a newly orphaned refugee retracing my steps
        Bb                     Cm
All the way to Cassadega to commune with the dead
                 Eb                (Eb)
They said, "You'd better look alive"
 
 
         Gm                        Eb
Now it's off to old Dakota where a genocide sleeps
       Bb                             Cm
In the Black Hills, the Badlands, the calloused East
     Bb                   Cm
I've buried my ballast, I made my peace
          Eb                       (Eb)
Heard four winds leveling the pines
 
 
               Cm      F                            Cm  F
But when great Satan's gone,           The whore of Babylon
         Eb      Bb                                  Eb    Bb
She just can't remain,                 With all that outer space
    Am    (Am)    Gm     (Gm)      Cm   Bb     Eb    Eb/D
She breaks,   she breaks,      she caves,  she caves
    Cm      (Cm)       F      (F)
She breaks                   You'd better look alive
 
 
--Outro--
Gm    Eb     Bb    Cm
Bb    Cm     Eb    Eb
 
Gm    Eb     Bb    Cm
Bb    Cm     Eb    Eb  (fade out)
