Philosophy Chords

   
This is my first attempt at doing this, but I think it is accurate.  Enjoy, it's a fun song!



Intro pt1- C  G/C  Am/C  Caug  C/D  G  C/D  G (x2)

Intro pt2- G  F/G (x5)



[Verse 1]
           C              F
Won't you look up at the skyline 

        F                 G/E
At the mortar, block, and glass 

     F            F/F#              F/G      G
And check out the reflections in my eyes? 

             C              F
You see they always used to be there 

      C                G/E
Even when this all was grass 

      F               F/F#         F/G    G
And I sang and danced about a high-rise 

             F
And you were laughing at 

   G         (Bass)-  /C /B /A /G
My helmet hat, 

F
Laughing at 

   G  F/G (x2) 
My torch 



[Chorus]
C                G/C               Am/C
Go ahead you can laugh all you want 

Caug /B     /C    /C#    C/D     G  C/D  G  C/D  G  C/D                    
I    got    my    phil - osophy 

      G                 C   G/C   Am/C
and I trust it like the ground 

Caug      /B      /C      /C#    C/D   G  C/D  G
that's    why     my      phil - osophy 

             C/D             G       G  F/G  G  F/G    
it keeps me walking when I'm falling down

[Verse 2]
  C                 F
I see that there is evil 

      C                  G/E
and I know that there is good 

        F             F/F#         F/G    G
and the in-betweens I never understood 

          C               F
won't you look at me, I'm crazy, 

      C           G/E
but I get the job done 

          F            F/F#         F/G    G
yeah, I'm crazy, but I get the job done 


and I say: 


[Chorus]


[Bridge] 
  Am             /E   Caug/A        /E
I pushed you 'cause I loved you guys 

  C/A    /E  F#dim7/A
I didn't realize 

/E          G          F/C  C  F/C  C
you weren't having fun 

      F
and I dragged you up the stairs 

      G
and I told you to fly 

          F
you were flapping your arms 

    G                        Am
you started to cry, you were too high 

    F/A#
no, too high 


[Intro pt1]


[Verse 3]
        C                 F
now you take this all for granted 

             C                  G/E
you take the mortar, block, and glass 

        F                     F/F#      F/G   G
and you forget the speech and moved the stone 

         C               F
but it's really not that you can't see 

    C              G/E
the forest for the trees 

    F              F/F#         F/G
you never been out in the woods alone 


[Chorus]
G                        C    G/C
So you can laugh all you want to

ect.
