World Leader Pretend

R.E.M

 I sit at my table and wage war on myself
 DGCD
 It seems like it's all...it's all for nothing
 DGC
 I know the barricades, and
 DD
 I know the mortar in the wall breaks
 GCD
 I recognize the weapons, I used them well 
 EmBmEmBm
          This is my mistake. Let me make it good
 EmBmGA
 I raised the wall, and I will be the one to knock it down 
I've a rich understanding of my finest defenses
I proclaim that claims are left unstated,
I demand a rematch
I decree a stalemate
I divine my deeper motives
I recognize the weapons
I've practiced them well. I fitted them myself
It's amazing what devices you can sympathize...empathize
This is my mistake. Let me make it good
I raised the walls, and I will be the one to knock it down
{I lose track of where the chords occur over the words. They just
switch between Am and C until the last part of this section...}
 AmCAmC
 Reach out for me and hold me tight.  Hold that memory
 AmCAmAG
 Let my machine talk to me.  Let my machine talk to me 
This is my world
And I am the world leader pretend
This is my life
And this is my time
I have been given the freedom
To do as I see fit
It's high time I've razed the walls
That I've constructed
It's amazing what devices you can sympathize...emapathize
This is my mistake. Let me make it good
I raised the walls, and I will be the one to knock it down
You fill in the mortar. You fill in the harmony
You fill in the mortar. I raised the walls
And I'm the only one
I will be the one to knock it down
