F#m      G#m

[verse]
                  F#m
Its such a tired game
             G#m
Will it ever stop
                  F#m
How will this all play out
                  G#m  
Upside out of my mouth


G#m
By now we should know how to communicate instead of coming to blows
            C#m  
We're on a roll
          B                    C#m
And there ain't no stopping us now
      B                C#m
We're burning under control
B                  C#m
Isn't it strange how we're all
B                      G#m
burning under the same sun


By now we say its a war for peace, it's the same old game
                          C#m
But do we really want to play?
         B                        C#m
We could close our eyes its still there
         B                  C#m
We could say its us against them
       B              C#m
We can try but nobody wins
     B                       F#m
Gravity has got a hold on us all


                 G#m
We try to put it out
                   F#m
But its a growing flame
               G#m
Using fear as fuel
                  F#m
Burning down our name
                      G#m
And it won't take too long
                        F#m
Cause words are burning same
                       G#m
And who we gonna blame now and oh


[chorus]
            C#m     B       A      G#m
It's such a crying, crying, crying shame
            C#m     B       A      G#m
It's such a crying, crying, crying shame
            C#m     B       A      G#m           F#m
It's such a crying, crying, crying shame, shame, shame


[solo]
   C#m  B          C#m        B          C#m        B      C#m   B       G#m

[verse]
G#m
By now, it's starting to show
                                                C#m
A number of people are numbers who ain't coming home
       B                      C#m
I can close my eyes its still there
  B                C#m
Close my mind be alone
  B                     C#m
Close my heart and not care
      B                          G#m
But gravity has got a hold on us all


It's a terrific price to pay
                              C#m
But in the true sense of the word
        B                    C#m 
Are we using what we've learned?
        B                 C#m
In the true sense of the word
       B                C#m
Are we losing what we were?


                 F#m
Its such a tired game
             G#m
Will it ever stop?
                 F#m
Is not for me to say
                 G#m
And is it in our blood?
                  F#m 
Or is it just our fate?
                      G#m
And how will this all play out
              F#m
Upside out of my mouth
                 G#m
And who we gonna blame on and on?


[chorus]
            C#m     B       A      G#m
It's such a crying, crying, crying shame
            C#m     B       A      G#m
It's such a crying, crying, crying shame
            C#m     B       A      G#m           F#m     C#m
It's such a crying, crying, crying shame, shame, shame
