Verse 1:
[E] You really think that you‚??re bigger than this
[Abm] To the tune of ten thousand lisps
[A] Who would have thought we‚??d represent

Verse 2:
[E] What better way to make an honest mistake
[Abm] Than a televised hand of fate
[A] When the world‚??s closing in on you

[Abm] A stronger jaded man stands
[A] If the world is ending
