Intro: E

E
 There's power in the name
 But the name's been lost for centuries
 There's poison in the water
 But the water tastes like honey
                Asus2                        C#m
 And we're so thirsty we don't care where we wake up tomorrow
            Asus2                B                 E
 We don't care, the question can hardly hold our attention
E                            Asus2            B                     E
 And this is a song for your young men to sing when they run out of options
Asus2            B             E
 Yeah, when they run out of options

 There's the faith you can give or withhold
 And then there's the one true faith
 There's the revolution you came for
 And the one you're eventually going to get.
 And there's a road that starts right here and leads clear up to Saskatchewan
 And I brought a full tank and a '67 Mustang
 And this is a song for your young women to whistle
 While they're driving at high speeds down the highway

 The wind up in the trees
 The song on the wind
 There's a message in the song
 But the message is hopelessly complicated
 And the words are written on water
 And disappear before you can write them down
 But I, I brought the Polaroid
E
 And this the song
      C#m
 And everybody's gotta sing along
                           A
 But it hasn't got a chorus
     B        E 
 God damn it all

E                         Asus2     B         E
 Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah!
 Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah!
 Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah!
