A*   
these times, useless inventions 
 F#m        D 
satisfy inquiring minds 
A* 
what about abuse of intention 
F#m             D 
in production, of new schemes 
F                              A* 
realize a world of quick-fix dreams 

A*
Come on ??? the new one
 F#m               D
Be the first to scrape it all
A*
Presenting creative ?exception?
  F#m               D
That you can not ?dream? about
 F                                 A*
For a nice try change this ?model? out
G            Eb                 C 
feed on a stroke of brilliance sometimes 
                A                E 
to cover up the oldness in your eyes 
                   G               D 
from noticing the coldness in our lives 
                      A            E 
donít know if itís a miracle or a curse 
              G                D 
maybe we can help you to feel worse 

A   C  (2x)
