[acoustic

out]

|E E |E E |

 

|E E |Am D |E

When a man is running from his boss who holds a gun that fires "cost"

E |Am D |E

And people die from being old or left alone because they're cold

E |

And bombs are dropped on fighting

Am |D |E

cats and children's dreams are run with rats

E |Am D |(E)

If you complain you disappear just like the lesbians and queers

 

|E E |Am D |E E |Am D (E)|

 

[acoustic in]

|E E E E E |Am Am D |E

No one can love without the grace of some unseen and distant face

E E E E |Am Am D |E

And you get beaten up by blacks who though they work still got the sack

E E E E |Am Am D E|E

And when your soul tells you to hide your very right to die's denied

E E E E |Am Am D E|E

And in the battle on the streets you fight computers and receipts

E E E E |Am Am D E |E

And when a man is trying to change it only causes further pain

[acoustic out]

E E E E|Am Am D D |D | |

You realize that all along something in us going wrong
