A A2 E E7 D D2 E7sus E7 (x4)
Cast your [A]eyes [A2]into the [E]dista[E7]nce [D] [D2] [E7sus] [E7]
Try to [A]fo[A2]cus on it [E]all [E7] [D] [D2] [E7sus] [E7]
Find a [A]spi[A2]rit of re[E]sista[E7]nce [D] [D2] [E7sus] [E7]
Instead of [A]pride [A2]before the [E]fall [E7] [D] [D2] [E7sus] [E7]
[F#m]Forge some opposition [D]
From [F#m]disparate strands [D] [E]
It ain't the [A]pretti[A2]est [E]posit[E7]ion [D] [D2]
As a [E7sus]century [E7]ends[A] [A2] [E] [E7] [D] [D2] [E7sus] [E7]
Un[A]sta[A2]ble situ[E]at[E7]ion [D] [D2] [E7sus] [E7]
[A]Faces [A2]made of [E]wax [E7] [D] [D2] [E7sus] [E7]
[A]Streams of [A2]melting [E]glass [E7] [D] [D2] [E7sus] [E7]
[A]Sheets of [A2]butchered [E]facts [E7] [D] [D2] [E7sus] [E7]
The [F#m]roar of the machine [D]
Hooded [C#]hearts and jeweled [C#7]hands [D] [E]
And [A]anger [A2]spilling [E]out like [E7]gasoline
F G A*
As a century ends
E B D A*
Everything I seen, everything that I heard
E B D A*
Ain't even the tip of the iceberg
[F]Fire down memory lane [G]
So [D]pass me my rose tinted glasses a[E]gain
[F#m] [D] [F#m] [D] [E] [A] [A2] [E] [E7] [D] [D2] [E7sus] [E7] 
Through a [A]fog [A2]of contra[E]dict[E7]ion [D] [D2] [E7sus] [E7]
Out to the [A]lak[A2]e of [E]tears [E7] [D] [D2] [E7sus] [E7]
See so[A]ciety ad[A2]miring its [E]own re[E7]flection [D] [D2] [E7sus] [E7]
Chase a [A]light that [A2]shines [E]and disap[E7]pears [D] [D2] [E7sus] [E7]
Now be [F#m]careful what you say[D] cause [F#m]reality offends [D] [E]
Just sit [A]back [A2]and let your [E]soul [E7]decay [D] [D2]
As a [E7sus]century [E7]ends
A A2 E E7 D D2 E7sus E7 (x4)
And its [A]easy to [A2]get [E]weary [E7] [D] [D2] [E7sus] [E7]
As you [A]fight to [A2]get it [E]done [E7] [D] [D2] [E7sus] [E7]
?Gainst a [A]popu[A2]lar [E]theory [E7] [D] [D2] [E7sus] [E7]
That it's [A]over[A2] 'fore it's [E]ev[E7]en begun [D] [D2] [E7sus] [E7]
Strain the [F#m]limit of compassion [D]
Tend a [C#]wound that never [C#7]mends, [D]ohhh [E]
And hones[A]ty [A2]still out of [E]fash[E7]ion
F G A*
As a century ends

As a century ends
