C#sus4 C# C#sus4 C#

C#sus4                          C#
I need a dream where I can live what I said
C#sus4                          C#
I need a place where I can make my bed
C#sus4                            C#
I need a hole where I'll find darkness now
           C#sus4                        C#
And if you hassle me mister I might just lose my head
G#                      B
Five minutes and you're almost there
G#                      B
Five minutes and you're almost dead
G#                      B
Five minutes and you're almost there
G#                      B
Five minutes and you're almost dead


C#sus4              C#
They came home on Saturday night
C#sus4                           C#
They killed a cat and they raped his wife
C#sus4                           C#
And in their eyes there was fear and hate
C#sus4                          C#
And when they spoke, they spoke with knives
G#                      B
Five minutes and you're almost there
G#                      B
Five minutes and you're almost dead
G#                      B
Five minutes and you're almost there
G#                      B
Five minutes and you're almost dead


keyboard solo:
C#sus4 C# (x4)

D#                     F#
Some say that I should hate them all
C#                      E
But I say that wouldn't help at all
B                       D#
I just wanna find those guys, that's all
B                       D#
I just wanna find those guys, that's all


(now for the difficult part... guitar solo)

C#sus4                               C#
The night time comes and the streets they ring
C#sus4                  C#
With the fears of a thousand things
C#sus4                            C#
But if you worry about your ports of call
C#sus4                   C#
You'll never get nothing done at all


G#                      B

G#                      B
Five minutes and you're almost there
G#                      B
Five minutes and you're almost dead


D#                     F#
Some say that I should hate them all
C#                      E

B                       D#
I just wanna find those guys, that's all
B                       D#
I just wanna find those guys, that's all
