Broken Circles

	  		      Am 
Fired forty rounds in the centre of town 
   G 
He thought to bring the world around 
Am 
Sleepless nights with God and Christ 
    C      G 
The New Messiah 
Am 
Burn the world to change the days 
G 
Can be done in better ways 
       Am 
But to make news and front page 
       C         G 
You've gotta aim higher 

                    Am 
They didn't build Jerusalem 
     G               Am 
They didn't find the land 
    G            Am 
For reasons of security 
     G        C        Am  
They couldn't find the plans 

    G                   Am 
And we're left standing watching from below 
G                C      G 
No new songs and no new heroes 
G                         Am 
Standing on the sidelines watching the flow 
G                       C        G 
Waiting for the day the circle's broken 

Am G Am C G 

Am 
Took the mic to save day 
    G 
The rock star's going to have his say 
  Am                         C     G    
interpret this in any way as if it matters 
    Am 
Cos nothing's black and nothing's white 
G 
Nothing appears to be quite right 
Am 
It'll be this way until the day 
    C        G 
The circle's shattered 

                    Am 
I heard an old song yesterday 
 G             Am 
About a better world 
             G 
You know the story 
              Am 
Well, They're all the same 
    G   C        Am 
The boy gets the girl 

    G                   Am 
And we're left standing watching from below 
G                C      G 
No new songs and no new heroes 
G                         Am 
Standing on the sidelines watching the flow 
G                       C        G 
Waiting for the day the circle's broken 

Am G Am C G 

         Am 
From the tips of your fingers 

The rest is numb 
      G 
You begin to feel the warmth of the sun 
     Am 
It's taken away been taking away 
C       G 
All you once knew 
Am 
Taking it back takes all you've got 
   G 
No time to sit and watch it rot 
  Am 
Believe it's yours and not the lies 
   C        G 
Or all hell to you 

                    Am 
They didn't build Jerusalem 
     G               Am 
They didn't find the land 
    G            Am 
For reasons of security 
     G        C        Am  
They couldn't find the plans 

    G                   Am 
And we're left standing watching from below 
G                C      G 
No new songs and no new heroes 
G                         Am 
Standing on the sidelines watching the flow 
G                       C        G     Am... 
Waiting for the day the circle's broken
