Intro: Dbm

Dbm                      A
Here I am with all the pleasures of the first world
E                   B
Laid out before me who am I to breakdown?


Dbm               A                         E
Everyday I wake up, I choose Love I choose Light
                    B
And I try, it's too easy just to fall apart

Interlude: Dbm    A    E    B

E                   A
Oh my baby don't be so distressed
      B             
Were done with politesse
             G               A
It's time to be so brutally honest about
E                         A
The way we know long for something fine
         B              
When we pine for higher ceilings
     G                A
And bourgeois happy feelings


    Dbm                  A         
And here we are in the center of the first world
     E                    B
It's laid out before us, who are we to break down?


Dbm               A                         E
Everyday we wake up, we choose Love we choose Light
                    B                    E    A   B   G   A
And we try, it's too easy just to fall apart


E                              A
Plastic Bottles Imported Water Cars we drive wherever we want to
B                                   G               A
Clothes we buy it's sweatshop labor Drugs from corporate enablers
E                    A                                    B
We're not living the Good life Unless we're fighting the Good fight
        G                  A            Dbm
You and Me just trying to get it right


Dbm      A                              E                 
In the center of the first world It's laid out before us, 
 B
who are we to break down?


Dbm               A                         E
Everyday we wake up, we choose Love we choose Light
                    B                    
And we try, it's too easy just to fall apart


E                      A                    B
Love can free us from all excess From our deepest debts
                G                 A          E
Cause when our hearts are full we need much less


E                       A                  
Yea i know we long for something fine When 
    B
we pine for higher ceilings
     G               A      
And bourgeois happy feelings


Dbm                      A
But Here we are in the center of the first world
      E                   B
It's laid out before us, who are we to break down?


Dbm                  A
Here we are in the center of the first world
       E                 B
It's laid out before us, who are we to break down?


Dbm               A                         E
Everyday we wake up, we choose Love we choose Light
                    B                    
And we try, it's too easy just to fall apart


Dbm               A                            E    
Everyday we wake up, we choose Love we choose Light
                    B                    
And we try, it's too easy just to fall apart
