intro: C Am F C

       C         
We're taught to tell the truth

But yet we're taught to force a smile
     Am
They lead us down a road

But they can only see a mile
       F
We only see what they want us to see
        C
We only see what they want us to see

     C 
They line us up in uniforms 

And tell us not to feel
        Am
They've never been to heaven

But they tell us that it's real
          F
They only see what they wanna see
          C
They only see what they wanna see

              F
We watch them pray
              G
Down on their knees
       Em                                      Am
'Cause that's the way that they were taught to be
              F        G
And thanks to them, we can be free
           F        G (hold)
Thanks to them...

            F    G    Am
We have the key---------
          F       G      Am
You'll be you and I'll be me
            F    G    Am
We have the key---------
          F       G      Am
You'll be you and I'll be me

     C      
They say that they're not puppets 

Then we point them to the strings
   Am
Convinced they'll stay together

By the paper and the ring
               F
But they can't see what we want them to see
                C
They just can't see what we want them to see

   C  
So tell me all your secrets 

and I'll tell you all my fears
       Am
'Cause if we knock these walls down 
    Am (hold)
We might know why we're here

              F
We watch them pray
              G
Down on their knees
       Em                                      Am
'Cause that's the way that they were taught to be
              F        G
And thanks to them, we can be free
           F        G (hold)
Thanks to them...

            F    G    Am
We have the key---------
          F       G      Am
You'll be you and I'll be me
            F    G    Am
We have the key---------
          F       G      Am
You'll be you and I'll be me

              F
We watch them pray
              G
Down on their knees
       Em                                      Am
'Cause that's the way that they were taught to be
              F        G
They just can't see

            F    G    Am
We have the key---------
          F       G      Am
You'll be you and I'll be me
            F    G    Am
We have the key---------
          F       G      Am
You'll be you and I'll be me

In the chorus, where it says "We have the key----" (1st and 3rd lines) it should be F G C, whereas F G Am is only "you be you and I'll be me" (2nd and 4th
