          C#m               E
We sent them all across the ocean
     C#m  C#m7/B  A
Many lives were taken
          E      G#m2       C#m       A
Well I didn't cry, I didn't know them
             E     G#m1       C#m
And I just looked on with no expression


C#m                E
This land was once a home
             C#m      C#
Of friends and family
We used to know
     E              G#m2
They are all gone now
            C#m    A
They are now gone
       E      G#m1     C#m     C#m7/B
And for what I cannot tell

   A                       E
Put down your banners and flowers
        G#m2               C#m
This war you've made won't last
A                         E
Your country, just lines on a map
        G#m2                  A                  A                
They're drawn up, they don't last       mmmmh mmmmh mmmmmmmh

Instrumental:    E      G#m1     C#m     G#m1

The paper cities burning
The ashes fell like rain
But when the fire was over
Everything had changed

The people come together
G#m1                                  C#m         G#m1
Reminds us we're the same     

A                   E
Put down banners and flowers
     G#m2                   C#m
This war you've made won't last
A                            E
Your country, just lines on a map
         G#m2                      A             A             E
They're' drawn up, but they don't last     mmmh mmmh mmh
