You were lost and got lucky
Came upon the shore
Found you were conquering America
You spoke of peace
But waged a war
While you were conquering America


C#m     A     E     B  [x2]


           C#m
There was land to take
     A
And people to kill
  E                         B
While you were conquering America
     C#m
You served yourself
A
Did God's will
  E                         B
While you were conquering America


C#m     A     E     B


      C#m
The ghost of Columbus
A
Haunts this world
        E                        B
'Cause you're still conquering America
     C#m
The meek won't survive
      A
Or inherit the earth
        E                        B
'Cause you're still conquering America


C#m      A          E        B
(Uh!)   America,    (uh!)   America,
C#m      A          E        B
(Uh!)   America,    (uh!)


     C#m
You found bodies to serve
    A
Submit and degrade
  E                         B
While you were conquering America
         C#m
Made us soldiers and junkies
  A
Prisoners and slaves
  E                         B
While you were conquering America


Chorus...


     C#m
You hands are at my throat
    A
My back's against the wall
         E                        B
Because you're still conquering America
       C#m
We're sick and tired
A
Hungry and poor
        E                        B
'Cause you're still conquering America


C#m     A     E     B  [x2]


     C#m
You bomb the very ground
      A
That feeds your own babies
E                        B
You're still conquering America
      C#m
Your sons and your daughters
     A
May never sing your praises
  E                       B
While you're conquering America

Chorus...


C#m
I see you eyes
        A
Seek a distant shore
  E                         B
While you're conquering America
        C#m
Taking rockets to the moon
           A
Trying to find a new world
     E                        B
And you're still conquering America

Chorus...


      C#m
The ghost of Columbus
A
Haunts this world
        E                        B
'Cause you're still conquering America
C#m                      A
You're still conquering America
E                        B
You're still conquering America
