                INTRO: C F C   G C

                              F               C

Well, their brains were quite large for their bodies

                                              G

And it lulled them into thinking they weren't dumb

         C             F               C

They did guns, extreme sports, special hobbies

                           G           C

And cool tricks with their fingers and thumbs

         Am                    G            C

And they thought they would be guaranteed delivered

        Am           D             G

To some guy in Roman sandals and a beard

        C               F               C

So they bought and they fought and they twittered

      G             C

By 2153 they'd disappeared

CHORUS:

         F                       C

Oh, they waited for their god in vain

           F                       C    G

Yeah, they waited for their god in vain

       C        F           C     F

In the last big play of the final game

     G                       C     G   C

They waited for their god in vain

                        F            C

Well, they went for the literal translation

                                          G

Of every text and symbol, sacred work and screed

       C           F         C

They obsessed over minor variations

                          G             C

Misconstrued the truth to justify their deeds

         Am                   G             C

And they thought that all the others were afflicted

              Am              D                  G

And those who knew the secret handshake would be saved

         C              F                 C

And they thought in the end they'd all be lifted

                         G              C

Now they're lying in the beds that they made

CHORUS:

         F                       C

Ah, they waited for their god in vain

           F                       C    G

Yeah, they waited for their god in vain

C                   F                C                 F

Standing with their luggage, waiting for the transport plane

     G                       C    

They waited for their god in vain

INSTRUMENTAL: C F C   G   C F C   G C   

              Am G C   Am D G   C F C   G C

CHORUS:

         F                       C

Ah, they waited for their god in vain

           F                       C    G

Yeah, they waited for their god in vain

          C                    F             C                F

When they called out for their god, each one used a different name

     G                       C    

They waited for their god in vain

                      F                  C               F

This is all we can conclude, from what's left of their remains

     G                       C     C-G-C
