Evan Hulka

B         A         G       F#
Flat top pave-ment com-fort me
         B                      A             G             F#
Like a chemical reaction or a steamroller, spreading randomly
           B       A          G    F#
There's a distant fuzz of a frequency
     B         A             G         F#
It tickles my ears, rustles under my feet
         B          A            G      F#
And it shakes the leaves off of every tree
G    A    F#
          B      A           G
What pretension everlasting peace
      A          B
Everything must cease

(same chords as before)
In-sti-tu-tion on the hill
Like a beacon in the mind of an ancestor to ignite the people's will
There's a shadow stain on the west facade
It is spread like decay to enshroud the fraud
And the decent folks find it oh so odd
Oh so odd
What protection everlasting peace
Everything must cease

(pluck 6th string only -- this part is slow)
B        A        G            F#
Brave me-mo-rials hewn white stone
           B                      A            G                   F#
Like the comforting caress of a mother or a friend you've always known
(strum from here -- resumes normal Bad Religion tempo)
     B          A           G   F#
It evokes such pain and significance
B                A           G     F#
What was once is reduced to remembrance
         B            A           G     F#
And the generations pass without recompense
G   A   F#
         B        A           G
What protection everlasting peace
       A          B
Everything must cease
