Bm D       G                 A
   Has our conscience shown?
Bm D       G                 A
   Has the sweet breeze blown?
Bm D       G              A
   Has all kindness gone?
Bm D          G
   Hope still lingers on.
A
 I drink myself of new found pity sitting alone in New York City
      G              Gsus4 G
And I don't know why.

Bm D      G          A
   Are we listening?
Bm D        G        A
   Hymns of offering
Bm D       G            A
   Have we eyes to see?
Bm D       G         A
   Love is gathering
A
 All the words that I've been reading have now started the act of bleeding
      G    Gsus4  G
Into one.  In  -  to one.  

D                 A                      G                      D   Dsus4 D Dsus2
 So I walk up on high and I step to the edge to see my world below.
D                  A                           C
 And I laugh at myself, while the tears roll down.
                            G                 Bm
Cause it's the world I know, it's the world I know.
