C              B                 A                 G       F  G
Everywhere you look there was confusion, violence, drama & drugs

   C                 B          A           G      F
So many righteous revolutionaries spouting Utopian love

E                             A
Everyone shrouded in a purple haze

     E                                     A
Then one day they woke up from their dream state

           B                                C
They found themselves no more at peace than before

older, meek, and conformed

C  G  A    E    F                       D
Empty causes, a bluster for the soul, a fix for the mind

C  G  A    E  F             G         C    G
Empty causes, cling to everything you find

    C                   B               A                 G             F   G
The shots rang out like popcorn and the chief was hid and rushed out of sight

    C                  B             A             G            F
The mohawk-chain, leather brigade rejoiced maliciously on that night

E                                 A
Someone cried out fuck the government

E                                 A
His mates couldn't define what he meant

   B                           C                       D
So no one gave him the time of day and the scene died away

C  G  A   E     F                       D
Empty causes, a war for the body and an army in the mind

C  G  A   E   F               G         C
Empty causes, losing steam as time goes by

F                G         C      B    A
Could it be that everybody selfishly desires

A                  F    C
Their own personal retinue

        F               G            C    B        A
And the causes are just manifestations of too much time

    F                 D
And far too little to do
