[Intro]
A Bm 
A Bm Bm 
A Bm
A Bm     x2

[Verse]
A      Bm                  A       Bm   Bm
A man stands up before his God and country
A          Bm              A       Bm  Bm  
Raises his right hand and takes an oath
A             Bm            A      Bm   Bm
Swears he has acted in the line of duty
A            Bm                A        Bm   Bm
And he more than anyone wants to tell the truth

[Chorus]
G                             Bm          A
But there is a need to keep somethings a secret
G                             Bm       A
Some weapons shipments, some private wars
G                             Bm          A
In the future democracy will be defended
A           Bm    Bm
Behind closed doors

[Verse]
A            Bm                  A       Bm   Bm
Now the men of Congress who convene to determine
A      Bm                  A       Bm   Bm
If covert war is a business or a crime
A      Bm                        A       Bm   Bm
Are the same men who routinely give their permission
A      Bm                    A       Bm   Bm
For the shedding of blood in security's name

[Chorus]
G                             Bm           A
And there is a need to keep some things a secret
G                             Bm          A
The names of some countries, the terms of some deals
G                             Bm          A
And above all the sound of the screams of the innocent
A           Bm  Bm    A  Bm  Bm
Beneath our wheels

[Bridge]
G#m
Does the word justice mean anything to you?
E                           F#m  
Are the features of a lie beginning to come through?

[Solo Chords]

A Bm  

[Verse]
A            Bm                  A       Bm   Bm
In the streets of America the children are buried
A            Bm                  A       Bm   Bm
Caught in an avalanche of weapons and drugs
A            Bm                  A       Bm   Bm
They live and they die in the bowels of a business
A            Bm                  A       Bm   Bm
That disguised as a war between The Crips and The Bloods

[Chorus]
G                             Bm           A
And there is a need to keep some things a secret
G                        Bm           A
The C.I.A. deals protecting the source
G                                      Bm   A      
And the government policies directly connecting 
A           Bm  Bm    A  Bm  Bm
The drugs and our wars

[Bridge]
G#m
Does the word justice mean anything to you?
E                           F#m 
As the battlefield comes home and democracy falls through

A Bm 
A Bm Bm 

[Verse]
D             G       C       D
I am waiting for the time to come
D                   G       C          D
When the word will be real for everyone
D                    G           C          Bm
And not just a word but a thing that can be done
G   A Bm
Justice must be won

A Bm 
A Bm Bm 

[Outro]
A Bm
Oh, oh, oh justice
A Bm
Justice
A Bm
Justice
A Bm Bm 
Oh, oh, oh justice

A Bm Bm 
Justice
E
A Bm Bm
