Lyrics

The Sign of the Times

Christian Carnucci 2020

Key of C

Verse 1

C G

They stand among the few,

Am F

Prechorus 1

C G

Am G

cause the notions they feed us carry such allure.

C G

Am F

Chorus

G

Verse 2

and the means we employ can be rationalized,

when the need can be easily sanctioned in our eyes, and

Repeat Chorus

Musical Break

Bridge

F C Am G

F C Am G

Or come to terms with being a pawn in their childish divisive campaign,

F

It's insane, but,

Repeat Chorus

Repeat Chorus
