A5 A riff
It was 3 AM when I heard the sound
E riff
Stuck my head outside and I looked around
[D]In the echo the car alarms ringing
The sense that something terrible had happened a[F#m]gain[F#m(maj7)]
Cut the [F#m7]lights and put the [B]TV on[F#m] [F#m(maj7)]
And they [F#m7]said that Michi[B]gan was gone
[Bm]Gone for [E]good
And now I'm waiting for the [D]big [A]boom
It [E]knows where I'm [F#m]gonna be
The [D]big [A]boom
I'm [E]always getting closer to
The [D]big [A]boom
And it [E]will catch [F#m]up to me
The [Dmaj7]big [Dm(maj7)]boom
A riff
There are few safe places left today
E riff
Every night they come and take one away
[D]Early on we believed we had a chance
Now there's no one who thinks that way any[F#m]more[F#m(maj7)]
And the [F#m7]infrastructure's [B]coming down[F#m] [F#m(maj7)]
And the [F#m7]government went [B]underground
[Bm]Gone for [E]good
And now I'm waiting for the [D]big [A]boom
It [E]knows where I'm [F#m]gonna be
The [D]big [A]boom
I'm [E]always getting closer to
The [D]big [A]boom
And it [E]will catch [F#m]up to me
The [Dmaj7]big [Dm(maj7)]boom
Bridge
A5 A riff
Only move by night, only move alone
E riff
Keep the fires low and stay off the phone
[D]Keep on moving or stay right where you are
What's the difference, it's only a matter of [F#m]time[F#m(maj7)]
And [F#m7]one by one the [B]cities fall[F#m] [F#m(maj7)]
Soon there [F#m7]won't be any[B]thing at all
[Bm]Gone for [E]good
And now I'm waiting for the [D]big [A]boom
It [E]knows where I'm [F#m]gonna be
The [D]big [A]boom
I'm [E]always getting closer to
The [D]big [A]boom
And it [E]will catch [F#m]up to me
The [Dmaj7]big [Dm(maj7)]boom
