LYRICS FOR WHOLE SONG:

I am a man as a man I've been told 
Bacon is brought to the house in this mold 
Born of your bellies I yearn for the cord 
Years I have groveled repentance ignored 

And I have been blamed 
And I have repented 
I'm working my way toward our union mended 

I am man who has grown from a son 
Been crucified by enrag-ed women
I am son who was raised by such men 
I'm often reminded of the fools I'm among 

And I have been shamed 
And I have relented 
I'm working my way toward our union mended 
And I have been shamed 
And I have repented 
I'm working my way toward our union mended 

We don't fare well with endless reprimands 
And we don't do well with a life served as a sentence 
And this won't work well if you're hell bent on your offense 
'Cause I am a man who understands your reticence 

I am a man who still does what he can 
To dispel our archaic reputation 
I am a man who has heard all he can 
'Cause I don't fare well with endless punishment 

'Cause I have been blamed
And I have repented 
I'm working my way toward our union mended 
And we have been blamed and we have repented 
I'm working my way toward our union mended 

We don't fare well with endless reprimands 
And we don't do well with a life served as a sentence 
And this won't work well if you're hell bent on your offense 
'Cause I am a man who understands your reticence

The chords on the verse sound a little funky, but the rest of it's really good. =]

Could write a tab only for the bass. Would be easier to get.
