Heard a sermon from a creaky pulpit with no one in the nave.
I paid a visit to the synagogue and I left there feeling blame.
No one can tell me what to do;
They had not the capacity to answer me.

What the world needs now is some answers to our problems.
We can't buy more time because our tender isn't valid.
If your soul needs love, you can get consoled by pity,
But it looks as though faith alone won't sustain us no more.

Watched the scientists throw up their hands conceding, "Progress will resolve it all."
Saw the manufacturers of Earth's debris ignore another Green Peace call.
No one could tell me what to do;
No one had the ability to answer me.

What the world needs now is some accountability.
We can't buy more time 'cause time won't accept our money.
If your soul needs love, you can always have my pity,
But it looks as though faith alone won't sustain us no more.

What the world needs now is some answers to our problems.
We can't buy more time 'cause our tender isn't valid.
What the world needs now is some accountability.
If your soul needs love, you can get consoled by pity,
But faith alone won't sustain us anymore.
Faith alone won't sustain us anymore... [repeat and fade]

Sorry I wasn't able to get the solo. All are power chords. I've just labeled the higher chords with a 2 at the end, because I can't remember the actual names :).
