Lyrics:
Dm/A7/Gm part

You’re playing tricks on me
You’re playing tricks on me
You think that I cain’t tell, I think I know you well
You’re playing tricks on me

You’re playing make believe
You’re playing make believe
You think that I cain’t quit
I think it’s time i split
You’re playing make believe

Bb/F/A7 Part

Ain’t it funny -- all the games you play!?
Even money -- cain’t make you go away -

You think that I cain’t see
You think that I cain’t see
Although I may be blind
I’m leavin’ you behind
You’re playin’ tricks on me

Gm/F/A7+slide up part

Round and round- Ow, you trick and scheme
Bring me down, YOU. make. me. kick-and-scream
[repeat verse?]
Instrumental [Bb/F/C/A/Eb/A]

Dm/A7/Gm
You think that I cain’t see
You think that I cain’t see
Although I may be blind
The deal is done, it’s signed
You’re playin’ tricks on me

etc. A/C#7#5 [Finale] or Am(maj7) or C6#5sus (Rhythm of Beethoven’s 5th 1st movement Leitmotif)

Fantastic as always. You're writing style is great. I'd this capo'd by any chance?

Yes, I'm actually having the situation where I can start recording some of the good ones. You know how life goes? Actually got a friend who plays a killer lead along with another who is amazing on those drum drums. So best case scenario I get some actual band recordings made thud year, I'd really like to make the album I've been writing for 10 years.

Glad that I could give you some needed motivation, mate. I know how it goes being a fellow artist and all. You've honestly influenced my writing more than you probably think ;)

You'll have to tour up to PGH!

I have the chords and lyrics, just need to practice and get an arrangement together:

Dm/A/Gm/F/G—???

Natch, I tried to buy the place out –
But he said they only lease
Then I’m told it’s owner-occupied
The rent has just increased

Sure, they understand the irony
I’ll give them that at least
Still, I’d always mind my manors with the Anarchy Police

And they’re sticklers for the grammar, ask the justice of the peace
When he drags you in to haggle with the Anarchy Police

These days almost everyone is dead,
Brother that's a proven fact;
Think the deck has gone straight to your head,
But boy the warden keeps it stacked

I have begged them for the cosmos but they offer no release
See, it’s just a nine to seven for these Anarchy Police
Oh, I’ve asked for Poena Cullei or at least the Guillotine
But they’re paid to keep me spinning in the Anarchy machine

Chords: {monsieur who left a bit too early from Les Miserable type melody} Then I met a lonely officer from district number 12
She’s an up-and-coming wise-guy ‘though she’s always blamed herself{/end}
For the chaos at the station when the coffee pot goes out
Asked her, Petey what’s the problem what’s this riddle all about?

Said: “Sir, if you want to get your point across you really needn’t shout
My friend, I learned this when quite young, as an anarchy Eagle Scout
Just do a Mala Kathakali, buddy. That’s my only tip,
And cousin, health is all I wish you on your own Anarchy trip”

Sure, they understand the irony
I’ll give them that at least
Still, I would always mind my manors with the Anarchy Police

And they’re sticklers for the grammar, just ask the justice of the peace
When he drags you in you’ll haggle with the Anarchy Police

These days almost everyone is dead,
And brother that's a proven fact;
The deck is going to your head,
I think the warden keeps it stacked

They will fight with PachaMama both in famine and in feast
But you see, that is the nature of these Anarchy Police

They will fight with PachaMama both in famine and in feast
But she knows, that’s just the nature of her Anarchy Police
