[Verse 1]
        C                      Em
We were riding out to meet the Sun
        D                            C
We were shaking from the things we'd done
        C                      Em
We were breaking every pattern straying from the map
   D
To make a new life on the run

        C                     Em
We were sick of life behind a lens
        D                         C
With it stripped of all its innocence
          C                       Em
Watch the hands above the puppets make another war
        D                    D
For the benefit of their own ends

[Chorus]
Gmaj
Motherless land
         Gmaj
A couple pills in my hand
           Gmaj
To take me out of my mind
G
Motherless land
          G
A couple pills in my hand
           G
To take me out of my mind
G
A couple we stand
         G
A couple pills in our hands
           G
To take us out of our minds

[Verse 2]
      C                      Em
So we grew up with a fear of God
         D                      C
Made guilty of the things we're not
        C                       Em
We were lost in vicious circles looking for a key
D                    D
Another door, another lock

       C                      Em
As the Sun was dancing on the lake
          D                     C
There was only so much we could take
      C                      Em
So we left it all to happen, left it all to chance
D                                  D
With a passion that they could not shake

[Chorus]
Gmaj
Motherless land
         Gmaj
A couple pills in my hand
           Gmaj
To take me out of my mind
Gmaj
A couple we stand
         Gmaj
A couple pills in our hands
           Gmaj
To take us out of our minds

            Em
Oh, take me out of my mind
            G
Oh, take me out of my mind
        Em
Take me out of my mind
        G
Take me out of my mind
G
Out of my mind, yeah

[Verse 3]
        C              Em
We've assassinated pacifists
      D                        C
As if peace was something to resist
         C                 Em
With the history repeating one day to the next
D                       D
Another thousand on the list

   C                       Em
So what are we without the fear?
    D                       C
And what are we without the shame?
    C                       Em
And what are we when all is clear?
D                     D
What are we without a name?

[Chorus]
Gmaj
Motherless land
         Gmaj
A couple pills in my hand
           Gmaj
To take me out of my mind
Gmaj
A couple we stand
         Gmaj
A couple pills in our hands
           Gmaj
To take us out of our minds
G
Motherless land
         G
A couple pills in my hand
           G
To take me out of my mind
G
A couple we stand
         G
A couple pills in our hands
           G
To take us out of our minds

            Em
Oh, take me out of mind
            G
Oh, take me out of mind
        Em
Take me out of my mind
        G
Take me out of my mind
        Em
Take me out of my mind
G
Out of my mind
