 D
 First we'd climb a tree
 D
 and maybe then we'd talk
 D
 or sit silently
 D
 and listen to our thoughts
 Cadd9
 with illusions of someday
 D
 casting a golden light
 C
 no dress rehearsal,
 D
 this is our life

Intro Riff (x2)

Pre-Chorus
 DCadd9
 that's where the hornet stung me  
 D
and I had a feverish dream
 Cadd9
with revenge and doubt
 D
tonight, we smoke them out

Chorus
 AG/BA
 You are ahead by a century, you are ahead by a century, you are ahead
 G/B
by a century 

Intro Riff (x4)

Verse 2
 D
 Stare in the morning shroud
 D
 and then the day began
 D
 I tilted your cloud
 D
 you tilted my hand
Cadd9(drums enter same time)
rain falls in real time
 D
 and rain fell through the night
 CD
 no dress rehearsal, this is our life

Intro Riff (x2) (really hold on the D chord for the length of two intro riffs and
have an electric w/distortion strum Dsus2, the Dsus2 Csus2 for the next prechorus)

Pre-Chorus
 DCadd9
 That's when the hornet stung me 
 D
and I had a serious dream
 Cadd9
with revenge and doubt
 D
tonight, we smoked them out

Outro
 AGA
 You are ahead by a century, you are ahead by a century, you are ahead
 GAG
by a century,                             you are ahead by a century, 
 AGdddu
you are ahead by a century, you are ahead by a century             
G Intro Riff (x6)
and disappointing you's getting me down end with D strum
