How To Play

INTRO
E C#m | G#m   |
E C#m | G#m   |
 
E                G#m
Nostradamus said I predict
         C#m               E/B
That the world will end at half past six
A                  G7          E
What he didn't say was exactly when
       G                A   E
Was he listening to the radio?
       C                B7    E    B
Was he listening to the government?
 
VERSE
        E              G#m
Well he got us spooked anyway
          C#m               E/B
We'd been running hot up until today
      A                   G7         E
But a wind of change blew across our sales
        G             A       E
We were coasting on a winning streak
        G               A     E
We were kings until the power failed
 
CHORUS
           D                 F#m
We've been living in a tinderbox
    Bm                     D/A
And two sparks can set the whole thing off
G                    D/F#
Rubbing up together around the clock
F                              C/E
Lately we've been getting more roll than rock
Eb                       Bb C    D        F#m
You and me together in a tinderbox (tinderbox)
Bm                     D/A
Two sparks can set the whole thing off
G                    D/F#
Rubbing up together around the clock
F                              C/E
Lately we've been getting more roll than rock
Eb                       Bb C    D
You and me together in a tinderbox
 
INSTRUMENTAL
E C#m | G#m    |
E C#m | G#m    |
 
VERSE
E              G#m
 Godzilla came in disguise
C#m                            E/B
Tore the building down right before our eyes
A               G7                 E
 Kept the needle out of the red balloon
       G                A      E
Was he worried we might go too far
      G               A        E
Maybe wind up rhyming moon and June
 
VERSE
    E                    G#m
The sun descends down in Mexico
        C#m               E/B
While a fancy car back on Savile Row
A                       G7       E
Shows the price of fame leads to overkill
G                A       E
Things are gonna have to change
     G               A        E
Some holes along the road get filled
 
CHORUS
           D                 F#m
We've been living in a tinderbox
    Bm                     D/A
And two sparks can set the whole thing off
G                    D/F#
Rubbing up together around the clock
F                              C/E
Lately we've been getting more roll than rock
Eb                       Bb C    D        F#m
You and me together in a tinderbox (tinderbox)
Bm                     D/A
Two sparks can set the whole thing off
G                    D/F#
Rubbing up together around the clock
F                              C/E
Lately we've been getting more roll than rock
Eb                       Bb C    D  E
You and me together in a tinderbox
 
BRIDGE
F#                                   G#
Pressure's gonna cook us if we don't unlock it
C#m                  C#m/B
Guns going off if we don't uncock it
      F#m                    G#7
We've gotta climb out of the other one's pocket
         C#m                     C#m/B     A     B
Or we're gonna burn, out on this beautiful rocket
