Intro:
    Gb  Ab  Gb  E  D  
    Gb  Ab  Gb  E  D
    D   D  D   D  D  D  D 

G           D
Wake up you sleepy head
Esus4                     Em
Put on some clothes shake off your bed
G                      D
Put another log on the fire for me
A                            E
I've made some breakfast and coffee
G                   D    
Look out my window, what do I see
  B7                     Em            F       C
A crack in the sky and a hand reaching down to me
        A7                D
All the nightmares came today 
                               G            Db   D Eb   Eb B Gbsus4 Gb
And it looks as though they're here to stay
G           D
What are we coming to 
Esus4             Em
No room for me no fun for you
G               D
I think about a world to come
          A                       E
Where the books were found by the Golden Ones
G               D
Written in pain written in awe
     B7              Em                 C
By a puzzled man who questioned what we were here for
        A7               D
All the strangers came today
                               G
And it looks as though they're here to stay

Chorus:
G      Bm            Em
Oh you pretty things 
          D                        C7                  G
Don't you know you're driving your mamas and papas insane?
G      Bm            Em
Oh you pretty things 
          D                        C7                  G
Don't you know you're driving your mamas and papas insane?
       A
Let me make it plain 
D                      C           G
Gotta make way for the homo superior


            D
Look out at your children
Esus4              Em
See their faces in golden rays
G                       D
Don't kid yourself they belong to you
A                        E
They're the start of the coming race
G             
The earth is a bitch
D
We've finished our news
B7           Em      F           C
Homo sapiens have outgrown their use
        A7             D                                    G
All the strangers came today and it looks as though they're here to stay

  1. Which is the easiest?

    I think the line of D chords at the bottom of the intro should be alternating D and D6 (which is the same as Bm7, or playing all second fret).
