(Brett now roughly plays the intro picking over the chords sometimes improvising. Sounds 
if you do the whole song in the picking from the beginning, but chords sound good aswell)


[Verse 1]

                Bb                     F
There ain't no reason things are this way
                      C                       Dm
It's how they' always been and they intend to stay
   C    Bb                       F
I can't explain why we live this way
               C
We do it every day


[Verse 2]

                 Bb                 F
Preachers on the podium speakin' of saints
                C                    Dm
Prophets on the sidewalk beggin' for change
    C      Bb                     F
Old ladies laughin' from the fire escape
           C
Cursin' my name

(chords remain the same for all verses)


[Verse 3]

I got a basket full of lemons and they all taste the same
A window and a pigeon with a broken wing
You can spend your whole life workin' for something
Just to have it taken away


[Verse 4]

People walk around pushin' back their debts
Wearin' paychecks like necklaces and bracelets
Talkin' 'bout nothin', not thinkin' 'bout death
Every little heartbeat, every little breath


[Verse 5]

People walk a tightrope on a razor's edge
Carryin' their hurt and hatred and weapons
It could be a bomb or a bullet or a pen
Or a thought or a word or a sentence


[Repeat Verse 1]

                Bb                     F
There ain't no reason things are this way
                      C                       Dm
It's how they' always been and they intend to stay
   C    Bb                       F
I can't explain why we live this way
               C
We do it every day


[Chorus]

                          Dm      Bb          C
But love will come set me free
                       Dm       Bb            C
Love will come set me free,     I do          believe
                       Dm       Bb            C
Love will come set me free,     I know it     will
                       Dm       Bb            C
Love will come set me free,     yes


[Verse 6]

Prison walls still standin' tall
Some things never change at all
Keep on buildin' prisons, gonna fill them all
Keep on buildin' bombs, gonna drop them all


[Verse 7]

Workin' your fingers bare to the bones
Breakin' your back, make you sell your soul
Like a lung that's filled with coal
Suffocatin' slow


[Verse 8]

The wind blows wild and I may move
But politicians lie and I am not fooled
You don't need no reason or a three-piece suit
To argue the truth


[Verse 9]

The air on my skin and world under my toes
Slavery stitched into the fabric of my clothes
Chaos and commotion wherever I go
Love I try to follow


[Chorus]

                          Dm      Bb          C
But love will come set me free
                       Dm       Bb            C
Love will come set me free,     I do          believe
                       Dm       Bb            C
Love will come set me free,     I know it     will
                       Dm       Bb            C
Love will come set me free,     yes


[Repeat Verse 1]

                Bb                     F
There ain't no reason things are this way
                      C                       Dm
It's how they' always been and they intend to stay
   C    Bb                       F
I can't explain why we live this way
               C
We do it every day
