Verse: (Play the little chord intro twice before each set of verses)

Am                        Em
The future teaches you to be alone
    F                        C
The present to be afraid and cold
   F                 
So if I can shoot rabbits
C                    G       G 
Then I can shoot fascists

Bullets for your brain today
But we'll forget it all again
Monuments put from pen to paper
Turns me into a gutless wonder

Chorus:

           Dm
And if you tolerate this
Am                         G
Then your children will be next
           Dm
And if you tolerate this
Am                         G
Then your children will be next
                   G
Will be next, will be next, will be next

Verse:

Gravity keeps my head down
Or is it maybe shame
At being so young
And being so vain

Holes in your head today
But I'm a pacifist
I've walked La Rambas but
Not with real intent

Chorus:

And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
Will be next, will be next, will be next

Guitar Solo: (This essentially just soloing over the chorus)

  Dm       Am        G     G      Dm       Am         G        G

Bridge:

Dm                 Am
And on the streets tonight
           G
An old man prays
     Dm           Am
With newspaper cuttings
             G
Of his glory days

Chorus:

And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
Will be next, will be next, will be next

Outro:

Dm, Am, G, G x6

Dm, A, G
