E--0-0-0-------0h2--2----------------|    finger. Then use index to hit the

2nd fret on the bass E string for
the E/F# chord.
You know where I come from
you know what I feel
you're Yul Brenner Westworld
reporting from the field.
I threw it into reverse,
made a motion to repeal.
You kicked my legs from under me,
and tried to take the wheel.

2nd Verse(same chords as first verse)

now I know that the sun has shined
on my side of the street.
the basket of America,
the weevils and the wheat.
the milk and honeyed congregation,
scrubbed and apple-cheeked
salute Apollo 13 from the
rattle jewelry seats.

(verse)
the rodeo is staged, gold circle
goat-ropers and clowns.
a rumble in the third act, tie
'em up and burn 'em down.
we're armed to the teeth,
born a little breech;
blue-plate special analysts,
cells and SUV's

(No guitar until the last "understand"==> ending with the intro)

storm into the boardroom of the conquering elite.
did you recognize the madman who is shouting in the streets?
destroy the things that I don't understand
destroy the things that I don't understand.
