I cant stand it any longer I cant suffer any more fools

Im gonna keep on sharpening axes till Ive got the sharpest tools
C gm
I cant access information comin down the mainframe
C gm bm a bm a
Those puerile incantations in couplets or quatrains

Watch it all run amok now watch those idiots score
Till you cant remember that theyre idiots any more
Watch that stain increasing spreading out across the earth
Till you cant remember what anything is worth

Bridge #2
I cant stand it any longer I cant listen to any more words
Im gonna keep on sharpening axes till they cut right through this dirt
I cant access information comin down the satellite beam
All I hear is psycho babble and I dont know what it means

Instrumental section, then
Bridge #1 (1st half)
Verse #2 (1st half)
Bridge #2 (2nd half)

Bm a
Sharpening axes (3 times) /pre>
