World Leader Pretend  R.E.M

  (D) -0-2-4-2-0-                  }




I[D] sit at my ta[G]ble a[C]nd wage war on mys[D]elf
I[D]t se[G]ems like it's al[C]l...it's all for no[D]thing
I[D] know the ba[G]rricades, [C]and
I know the mor[D]tar in the wal[D]l breaks
I rec[G]ognize the weapons,[C] I used them well[D]
  [Em]    [Bm]    T[Em]his is my mistake. L[Bm]et me make it good
I[Em] raised the wall, and I[Bm] will be the one to knock it d[G]own[A]
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...}
R[Am]each out for m[C]e and hold [Am]me tight.  Hold that me[C]mory
Let [Am]my machine ta[C]lk to me.  L[Am]et my machine t[A]alk to me[G]
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
