Counter Hegemony

(Intro) - (build for an 8 count on E) - play all power chords starting on E with low string droning in 1st chord.
 
 E                                Db
nothing rhymes with hegemony
 E                                Db
yet every word’s the same
 E                                Db
nothing rhymes with hegemony
 E                                Db
it’s a crooked game
 B               C    A
who is this in my mind
 B               C    A
constantly chanting buy sell buy
 B               C    A
can’t tell what this all means
 B                          A             E
we know for sure it’s not as it seems
 
 E                                Db
oh nothing rhymes with hegemony
 E                                Db
yet every word’s the same
 E                                Db
nothing rhymes with hegemony
 E                                Db
it’s a crooked game
 
 B                     C    A
how to handle all this rage
 B                                         C    A
guillotine too heavy for the digital age
 B                                   C    A
now take down this historic bloc
 B                                           A         E
awaken every soul in their freedom to rock
 
 E                                Db
nothing rhymes with hegemony
 E                                Db
yet every word’s the same
 E                                Db
nothing rhymes with hegemony
 E                                Db
it’s a crooked game
 E                                C
nothing rhymes with hegemony
E                                 C
except for maybe parsimony
 C - Db - D - Eb - E - F - Gb - G - (slide in power chords up the neck by half steps then HIT ALL STRINGS OPEN )
it’s just as effing lame
 
 (ahhhhh guitar noise)
they better be glad that i use my words
  (ahhhhh guitar noise)
they better be glad that i use my words
   (keep building muted on E)
they better be glad that i use my words
   (keep building unmated on Em and resolve to Major)
they better be glad that i use my words
 
  E                            Db
nothing rhymes with hegemony
  E                            C
yet every word’s the same
  E                            Db
nothing rhymes with hegemony
  E                            Db
it’s a crooked crooked game
  E                            Db
nothing rhymes with hegemony
  E                            C
every word’s the effing same
  E                            Db
cause nothing rhymes with hegemony
  E                     C
question everything
C - Db - D - Eb - E - F - Gb - G - (slide power chords up the neck by half steps to HIT ALL STRINGS resolve on EMaj)
it’s all the effing same
