[Verse 1]

          C    F  Am
If war is holy 
             C     F  Am  G
And sex is obscene
             C       F  Am
We’ve got it twisted
              C     F  Am  G
In this lucid dream
            C          F  Am
Baptized in boundaries
            C   F  Am  G
Schooled in sin
           C          F  Am
Divided by difference
              C    F  Am  G
Sexuality and skin


[Pre-Chorus 1]

              F          
Oh, so we can hate each other and fear each other
       G
We can build these walls between each other
      G/G#
Baby, blow by blow and brick by brick
         Am
Keep yourself locked in, yourself locked in


             F
Yeah, we can hate each other and fear each other
       G
We can build these walls between each other
      G/G#
Baby, blow by blow and brick by brick
         Am
Keep yourself locked in, yourself locked


[Chorus 1]

     Am      C                       F  Am  G
Oh-oh, maybe we should love somebody
     Am      C                           F  Am  G
Oh-oh, maybe we could care a little more
  Am      C                       F  Am  G
So, maybe we should love somebody
          Am    C                           F  Am  G
Instead of, polishing the bombs of holy war


[Verse 2]

                C    F  Am
What if sex was holy
              C     F  Am  G
And war was obscene
              C       F  Am
And it wasn't twisted
                 C     F  Am  G
What a wonderful dream
           C    F  Am
Living for love
                C   F  Am  G
Unafraid of the end
                   C    F  Am
Forgiveness is the only
       C     F  Am  G
Real revenge


[Pre-Chorus 2]

              F
Oh, so we can heal each other and fill each other
       G
We can break these walls between each other
      G/G#
Baby, blow by blow and brick by brick
         Am
Keep yourself open, yourself open


             F
Yeah, we can heal each other and fill each other
       G
We can break these walls between each other
      G/G#
Baby, blow by blow and brick by brick
         Am
Keep yourself open, yourself open


[Chorus 2]

  Am      C                       F  Am  G
So, maybe we should love somebody
    Am      C                           F  Am  G
Yeah, maybe we could care a little more
  Am      C                       F  Am  G
So, maybe we should love somebody
          Am    C                           F  Am  G
Instead of, polishing the bombs of holy war


[Verse 3]

                C    F  Am
What if love is holy
           C     F  Am  G
And hate obscene
               C    F  Am
We should give life
                  C     F  Am  G
To this beautiful dream
                C    F  Am
Cause peace and love 
         C   F  Am  G
Ain't so far
                C      F  Am 
If we nurse our wounds
            C    F  Am  G
Before they scar
          C      F  Am  
Nurse our wounds
            C    F  Am  G
Before they scar


[Outro]

C    F    Am  
C    F    Am   G
Hmm, hmm, hmm

C    F    Am  
Hmm, hmm, hmm
C    F    Am   G
Hmm, hmm, hmm

C    F    Am  
C    F    Am
