Intro is just E chord, occasionally dropping the pinky on fret 3 of the B string.
  
Your great
A
-grandfather
B
 was a great 
E
lawyer
  
And his 
A
kid made a 
B
mint off the 
E
war
  
Your 
A
father shot 
B
stills and then 
E
directed films
  
That your 
A
mom did pub
B
licity 
E
for
  
I saw 
B
your older sis on the 
A
year’s best book list
  
And your 
E
brother, he manages 
B
bands
  
And you’re keen to down play, but you’re 
A
quick to betray
  
With one 
E
well-turned-out wave of 
B
your hand
  
You come from 
E
wealth
Yeah, you got wealth
  
What a 
A
bitch, they didn’t 
B
give you much 
E
else
B
  
I heard 
A
cuts by The 
B
Kinks on your 
E
speakers
  
I saw 
A
Poe and Ar
B
taud on your 
E
shelves
  
While The 
A
Last Laugh’s first 
B
scene on your 
E
flat panel screen
  
Lit Cha
A
nel that you’ve 
B
wrapped around 
E
yourself
  
You’ve got 
B
outsider art by an 
A
artist you arguably 
E
kidnapped a kid on the 
B
wall
  
Your designers have slyly 
A
directed the eye 
  
down 
E
clean lines here in your well lit 
B
hall
  
You’ve got 
E
taste, you’ve got taste
  
What a 
A
waste that 
B
that’s all that you 
E
have
B
  
Oh, you wrote your 
A
thesis on the 
B
gospel of 
E
Thomas
  
You shot some 
A
reversal 
B
film in Angkor 
E
Wat  
  
And this 
A
book you once 
B
read said there’s 
E
less people dead at this point 
A
now than 
B
those who are 
E
not
  
And this 
B
film we once saw was 
A
reviled for it’s flaws
  
But it’s 
E
flaws were what made us have 
B
fun
  
And the 
B
life some folks had might 
A
have made us feel bad
  
Why feel 
E
bad? Man, it’s nothing 
B
you’ve done
  
It’s all in your 
E
hand
It’s all in your hand
  
Like a 
A
gun, like a 
B
glove, like a 
E
grand
B
Solo over verse progression
  
And this 
B
thing you once said disa
A
ppeared from my head
  
In the 
E
time that it took to be a
B
mazed
  
And this 
B
thing you once did might have 
A
dazzled the kids
  
But the kids 
E
once grown up are gonna walk 
B
away
  
And your 
A
world is 
B
going to change 
E
nothing (repeat)
And our world is going to change nothing.
