D# chordD#
In the dawn of desperation
D# chordD#
When the peasants are beheading
G# chordG# A# chordA# D# chordD#
Every emperor with a golden crown
D# chordD#
First they'll stand with one another
D# chordD#
Then they'll turn against each other
G# chordG# A# chordA# D# chordD#
Under thunder on a battleground


Cm chordCm
With their torches tar and feathers
A# chordA#
Off to round up all the witches
D# chordD# G# chordG#
On a rail to run 'em out of town


D# chordD#
In a kingdom that's collapsing
A# chordA#
I'm relaxing on the ashes
G# chordG# A# chordA# D# chordD#
Playing fiddle watching Rome burn down


G# chordG# A# chordA# D# chordD#


D# chordD#
You can dance around the fire
D# chordD#
With the hand that holds the power
G# chordG# A# chordA# D# chordD#
Or go cower with the gagged and bound
D# chordD#
While the vultures count the profits
D# chordD#
And the hawks are launching rockets
G# chordG# A# chordA# D# chordD#
In a garden growing mushroom clouds


Cm chordCm
You can storm the ivory towers
A# chordA#
But the knight in shining armor's days
D# chordD# G# chordG#
Are numbered on the body count


D# chordD#
So I'm laughing up to heaven
A# chordA#
In the arms of Armageddon
G# chordG# A# chordA# D# chordD#
Playing fiddle watching Rome burn down

D# chordD#
Where the tricksters and the grifters
D# chordD#
And the rich carnival barkers
G# chordG# A# chordA# D# chordD#
Sell their psalters to a spellbound crowd
D# chordD#
Buying tickets to the promise
D# chordD#
Of a better world a-coming
G# chordG# A# chordA# D# chordD#
Left with nothing when their hope runs out


Cm chordCm
There's a lifeboat overflowing
A# chordA#
On a rising violent ocean
D# chordD# G# chordG#
In the darkness where the sailors drown


D# chordD#
But I'm smiling on an island
A# chordA#
By the tidal wave horizon
G# chordG# A# chordA# D# chordD#
Playing fiddle watching Rome burn down


G# chordG# A# chordA# D# chordD#


D# chordD#
If you're screaming in defiance
D# chordD#
Are you David or Goliath
G# chordG# A# chordA# D# chordD#
When the riot rages all around
D# chordD#
Call it vengeance call it justice
D# chordD#
Call it progress call it selfish
G# chordG# A# chordA# D# chordD#
Either way I'm gonna have my doubts


Cm chordCm
Maybe I'm just causing problems
A# chordA#
Thinking I know how to solve 'em
D# chordD# G# chordG#
So for once I'm gonna shut my mouth


D# chordD#
Waiting silent in the shadows
A# chordA#
Like a devil at the crossroads
G# chordG# A# chordA# D# chordD#
Playing fiddle watching Rome burn down

D# chordD#
While the charlatans are shouting
D# chordD#
Propaganda on the mountain
G# chordG# A# chordA# D# chordD#
Truth is spoken to an empty house
D# chordD#
If you ask for my opinion
D# chordD#
Are you tryin' to make a difference
G# chordG# A# chordA# D# chordD#
Or find something to complain about


Cm chordCm
When indulgence and consumption
A# chordA#
Leave a landscape of destruction
D# chordD# G# chordG#
Where it's far too late to turn back now


D# chordD#
I'll be moving on my own way
A# chordA#
Down the existential highway
