Cm - No capo

Verse 1

       Cm                             Gm
They sentenced me to twenty years of boredom
       Cm                              Gm
For trying to change the system from within
       Cm                       Gm
I'm coming now I'm coming to reward   them

Chorus 1

  F                  D#  D                 Gm
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

Verse 2

       Cm                        Gm
I'm guided by a signal in the heavens
       Cm                         Gm
I'm guided by this birthmark on my skin
       Cm                         Gm
I'm guided by the beauty of our weapons

Chorus 2

  F                  D#  D                 Gm
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

    A#                                F    D#
I'd really like to live beside you, baby
              A#                             Gm
I love your body and your spirit and your clothes
         A#                                       Gm
But you see that line there moving through the station

I told you I told you I told you I was one of those

Verse 3

       Cm                              Gm
You loved me as a loser but now your worried that I just might win

You know the way to stop me but you don't have the discipline
     Cm                                Gm
How many nights I prayed for this: to let my work begin

I don't like what happened to your sister

The monkey end the plywood violin

I practiced every night and now I'm ready
