Island Of Anger

Capo on 2nd fret
	  		"Island Of Anger" 


 
 

E                  D 
It's a beautiful world 
E              D 
Filled with stupid people 
E                      D 
Beating each other's brains out 
             E      D 
Like the cavemen did 
A                                
But I'm stuck right here 
C 
Wondering why I can't do 
            E         D E D 
Like the brave men did 

E           D 
Oh don't I know 
E              D 
This ain't no way to live 
         E         D  
When everything I see and hear 
E           D 
Makes me mad 
      A 
And there's no silver lining 
     C 
The stuff that doesn't get me angry 
 B 
Makes me sad 

Chorus 1: 
E                    A 
Hard to believe I'm not a kid 
E                     A 
Hard to believe the things I did 
F#m                                B 
Hard to believe the ways I hid my love 
E                          A 
Wondering now why I'm not free 
E                       A 
Wondering how I came to be 
F#m                             B 
An island of anger in a sea of love 

     E     D 
And love rules 
 E           D 
This much I understand 
     E                D              E        D 
But all the ones who live for peace die for it 
A 
Still somehow that message comes 
     C                         B 
And every day I struggle to decipher it 

Chorus 1: 
E                    A 
Hard to believe I'm not a kid 
E                     A 
Hard to believe the things I did 
F#m                                B 
Hard to believe the ways I hid my love 
E                          A 
Wondering now why I'm not free 
E                       A 
Wondering how I came to be 
F#m                             B 
An island of anger in a sea of love 

Refrain:  

G                 
Younger by half 
        C 
I was quick to laugh 
G                                C 
Hopeful and alive to what might come 
Em               
Where's my spark 
A 
Skies so dark 
Am7            Em                 G D B 
All I seem to hear is a distant drum 

Guitar Solo: E  D  E  D  E  D  A  C  B 

Chorus 1: 
E                    A 
Hard to believe I'm not a kid 
E                     A 
Hard to believe the things I did 
F#m                                B 
Hard to believe the ways I hid my love 
E                  A 
Wondering now why I'm not free 
E                A 
Wondering how I came to be 
F#m                             G#m B 
An island of anger in a sea of love 
  
Chorus 2: 
F#m                             B 
Hard to believe the time's so short 
F#m                          G#m 
Hard to believe I'm still in port 
G#m                                    Db 
Dying to set a different sort of course 
F#m                         B 
Wondering now how I'll get free 
F#m                   B 
And how to become a refugee 
G#m 
From an island of anger 
             Db   
In a sea of love 
F#m E 
Love
