[Intro]

Cast off the crutch that kills the pain
The red flag waving never meant the same
The kids of tomorrow don't need today
When they live in the sins of yesterday


[Chorus 1]

Am                       C
Cast off the crutch that kills the pain
    G                     F
The red flag waving never meant the same
    C                      G
The kids of tomorrow don't need today
          E                   E/G#
When they live in the sins of yesterday


[Verse 1]

Am                                 G7/B
  Well I've never seen us act like this
                              Am
Our only hope is the minds of kids
                               G7/B E
And they'll show us a thing or two
Am    C                            G7/B
  Our only weapons are the guns of youth
          E                            Am
It's only time before they tighten the noose
    C                            G7/B E
And then the hunt will be on for you

I think it's key of A minor. However, the C major key's relative minor is A minor, so basically they're pretty much the same. A minor would just be more accurate. Nice tab overall.
