*(Song) and the corresponding chord at the end of chorus 3 are optional -- in the album version,
this word and the start of the next verse overlap, which is difficult to replicate on acoustic.
How you choose to play it is up to you; I prefer to cut it off at "rock" and go straight into
the outro.

[Intro]
Bm D A F#
Bm D A F#

[Verse 1]
         Bm          D                A               E
Have you been to the desert? Have you walked with the dead?
          Bm         D                    A                F#
There's a hundred thousand children being killed for their bread
        G                                D
And the figures don't lie, they speak of human disease
       A                      D             A
But we do what we want and we think what we please

[Verse 2]
         Bm          D                  A             E
Have you lived the experience? Have you witnessed the plague?
Bm           D                 A         F#
People making babies sometimes just to escape
        G                           D
In this land of competition, the compassion is gone
       A                       D            A
Yet we ignore the needy and we keep pushing on
D            A
Keep pushing on!

[Chorus 1]
Bm     G       D         A
This is just a punk rock song
Bm              G              D               F#
Written for the people who can see something's wrong
     G                    D
Like ants in a colony, we do our share
            F#
But there's so many other fucking insects out there
    Bm     G       D    F#   Bm D A F# Bm D A F#
And this is just a punk rock song

[Verse 3]
         Bm          D                  A           E
Have you visited the quagmire? Have you swam in the shit?
    Bm       D                A        F#
The party conventions and the real politics
    G                              D
The faces always different, the rhetoric the same
       A                     D           A
But we swallow it all and we see nothing change
D           A
Nothing has changed!

[Chorus 2]
Bm     G       D         A
This is just a punk rock song
Bm              G              D               F#
Written for the people who can see something's wrong
     G                        D
Like workers in a factory, we do our share
            F#
But there's so many other fucking robots out there
    Bm     G       D    F#   Bm D A F# Bm D A F#
And this is just a punk rock song

[Solo]
Bm D A F#
Bm D A F#

[Bridge]
Bm        D             A         E
10 million dollars on a losing campaign
Bm         D            A           E
20 million starving and writhing in pain
Bm        D          A          E
Big strong people, unwilling to give
 Bm     D           A      F#
Small in vision and perspective
G                          D
One in five kids below the poverty line
A                      D      A
One population running out of time
D              A
Running out of time!

[Chorus 3]
Bm     G       D         A
This is just a punk rock song
Bm              G              D               F#
Written for the people who can see something's wrong
     G                    D
Like ants in a colony, we do our share
            F#
But there's so many other fucking insects out there
    Bm     G       D    F#    (Bm)
And this is just a punk rock *(song)

[Outro 1]
G                               D
Figures don't lie they speak of human disease
       A                       D            A
But we do what we want and we think what we please
G                          D
One in five kids below the poverty line
A                      D      A
One population running out of time

[Outro 2]
Bm     G       D         A
This is just a punk rock song
Bm     G       D         A
This is just a punk rock song
Bm     G       D    F#   Bm
This is just a punk rock song
