Intro: Em 

       C
You've got the mouth of a she wolf
           Am
Inside the mask of an innocent lamb
             Em
You say your heart is all compassion
                   Dsus2/F#           G
But there's just a flat line on your cardiogram


        Am                        C
Yet you always made a profit baby
                             Em
If it was a famine or a feast


             C
Yes, I'm the soul of indiscretion,
      Am
I was cursed with x-ray vision,
        Em
I could see right through all the lies you told,
         Dsus2/F#            G
When you smiled for the television


            Am                    C
And you can see the coming battle
                                   Em
You pray the drums will never cease
            Am                        C
And you may win this war that's coming
                                 Em
But would you tolerate the peace?


       D     G   C  Am
OoHooHoooooHoooHoooooo
  D
Investing in munitions
          G
And those little cotton flags
          C
Invest in wooden caskets
            Am                           G Em
In guns and body bags, guns and body bags


     C
Your daddy was a businessman
       Am
And it always made good sense
             Em
You know the war can make you rich my friend
   Dsus2/F#            G
In dollars, pounds and cents


       Am                       C
In the temple that was Mammon's
                                   Em
You were ordained the parish priest
          Am                       C
Yes you may win this coming battle
                                 Em
But could you tolerate the peace?


       D     G   C  Am
OoHooHoooooHoooHoooooo
       D     G   C  Am
OoHooHoooooHoooHoooooo
  D
Invest in deadly weapons
          G
And those little cotton flags
          C
Invest in wooden caskets
            Am  
In guns and body bags
       D
You're invested in oppression
          G
Investing in corruption
                C
Invest in every tyranny
                             Am    G Em
And the whole world's destruction 


  G                 Em
I imagine there's a future
             G                Em
When all the earthly wars are over
        G                  Em
You may find yourself just standing there
       G               Em
On the white cliffs of Dover


        G                 Em
You may ask, what does it profit a man
            G                          Em
To gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his soul?
             G                   Em
Is that your body you see on the rocks below
       G              Em
As the tide begins to roll?


        Am                      C
And you invested in this prison
                                 Em
From which you never got released
             Am                          C       
You may have won this war we're fighting
                                 D  G  C  Am
But would you tolerate the peace?


       D     G   C  Am
OoHooHoooooHoooHoooooo
          D
There's a war on our democracy
    G
A war on our dissent
                       C
There's a war inside religion
          C
And what Jesus might have meant


D
There's a war on mother nature
  G
A war upon the seas
                      C
There's a war upon the forests
        C
On the birds and the bees


D
There's a war on education
  G
A war on information
                  C
A war between the sexes
    C
And every nation


  D
A war on our compassion
                 G
A war on understanding
                 C
A war on love and life itself
                         Am    C   Am   C
It's war that they're demanding


G Em  G Em

        G           Em
Make it easy on yourself
             G      Em
And don't do nothing
