STOCKHOLM SYNDROME

(First tab ever, be forgiving)
-----------------------------

INTRO:
C     G     Am--->   F    x2

VERSE 1:
C               G                  Am  ---->       F
O, I was free to live and love and kill as I saw fit
C                     G             Am  ---->      F
I was at peace, there really was no one I was at war with
G                 G(B)     C            C(D) 
The only common good was that we understood
Em                                  F(e)
That laws unjust were only good for breaking
    G                G(B)             C        
The difference legalized instead of (sameness?)
           F
Left nobody free
                  C                       G                    Am        
But that was the day before I married my conscience to the State
(Am)  C   Em  Em  F F F (G)
Am    C   Em  Em  F F F (G)

VERSE 2:
C                   G                  Am  ---->      F
My taxes paid, these roads were laid to places of my choosing
C                     G                  Am  ---->      F
There were no eyes up in the skies looking down into my bed
G                 G(B)     C            C(D) 
There was no government without our consent
Em                                  F(e)
And keys were made for anyone who just claimed it
    G                G(B)             C        
And glass was all of every wall that framed it
                  F
From sea to shining sea
                  C                       G                    Am        
But that was the day before I married my conscience to the State
(Am)  C   Em  Em  F F F (G)
Am    C   Em  Em  F F F (G)

BRIDGE:
Am                                 F      
Right and wrong were written on my heart, 
                               G
not just in the laws that condemn me
Am                           F                                       
But now with Caesar satisfied, 
                                     G        Am.....
I can even do the things that should offend me
