Lyrics and Chords

Intro:
A5  - x8
Am | Am | Dm | Dm | Fmaj7 | E | Am | Am  - x2

Verse 1:
           Am
Well I'm standing by the river
         Dm
But the water doesn't flow,
    F                      E
It boils with every poison
          Am
You can think of.

        Am
And I'm underneath the streetlight
         Dm
But the light of joy I know
  F                  E
Scared beyond belief
                  Am
Way down in the shadows.

            C
And the perverted fear of violence
           G
Chokes a smile on every face,
     F                               E
And common sense is ringing out the bells.

Chorus:
Am                              Dm
  This ain't no technological breakdown,
    F               E       Am
Oh no, this is the road to hell.

Instrumental:
Am | Am | Dm | Dm | G | G | C | Csus2/B
Am | Am | Dm | Dm | Fmaj7 | E | Am | Am

Verse 2:
             C
And all the roads jam up with credit
             G
And there's nothing you can do,
     F
It's all just bits of paper
  E
Flying away from you.

    Am
Oh look out world, take a good look
            Dm
What comes down here,
          F                     E
You must learn this lesson fast
              Am
And learn it well.

Chorus:
Am                                Dm
  This ain't no upwardly mobile freeway,
    F               E
Oh no, this is the road,
F                   E
  Said this is the road,
F              E       Am
  This is the road to hell.
