verse: (Em C G Bm Am) x4 A7
chorus: D D G A

hey modern world there's a time & a place
to remind me i'm a thorn in your side
i'm a thorn & if this talk is a waste of time
well, i am sworn to defend i am sworn
to tell you all your modern war is a waste
i will warn you that you need a warning
don't be so sure

there's an open road
i have walked upon
take a heavy load
share it with the dawn
& you will know...

dig for a dime & you'll find that the devil's only
in the way that you say no way
& never mind that the earth is holy
it's a prayer for us all & beware
when you decide – don't fake the smile
next door it's worldwide – my inch your mile
comfort & suicide...comfort & suicide

there's an open road
we will all walk down
paved with the gold
from every crown
& you will know... [verse instr. once]

& the stars fall down
all the stars come down x2
