C              Em      D                C            G           D

Down where the dullards rule; How do you keep a match lit in this hole?

C            Em    Am             Em

Up where the idiots lead; Scattering seeds.

         D          C             G            D          C             G

Well, we all had to stand for the Pledge. When bones were thrown we all fetched.

    D              C         G     D         C     

But still, we were burning inside. How did I get out



  A-live?

    G           D             Em            D         G

       C    Em        D                 C             G           D

And we read here we are free; Sang "this land was made for you and me."

C              Em       Am                Em

Watched as the president swore; Called for war.

       D           C              G             D          C             

We all tied yellow ribbons 'round necks. And we all had to stand for the 

G

Pledge.

   D            C        G      D         C       

So smothered by national pride. How did I get out

  A-live?

    G         D           Em          D        G         D           Em          D

C             Em    D              C         G            D

Back when the idiots ruled, I was a time bomb brought into school.

       C             Em             Am           Em

It was there that we learned up from down; upside-down.

       D             C             G                 D           C             

It was there that we stood for the pledge. Where the living were raised by 

    G

the dead.

       D               C          G         D         C

Led to slaughter, kept inside the lines. So how did I get out...

   D          C          G               D            C      G

By some rebel angel was I blessed? Or by some devil's minion led?

       D           C             G     D         C       G

One by one, we all choked on the lies. How did I get out alive?

G        D          Em         D           

Hey, but I ain't no saint sent down to save

   You.
