Am Fmaj7 Am Fmaj7 Am Fmaj7 C G

Am Fmaj7 Am Fmaj7 Am Fmaj7 Am G


[Verse]
  Am           Fmaj7                  C              G
Johnny was a chameleon when it was predominately shrapnel
 Am          Fmaj7                  C              G
Shrapnel from the chapel to the cabinet/cab man
 Am        Fmaj7              C              G
   Johnny kissed the groom to go join the killing 
 Am           Fmaj7                  C              G
While Britain is watching her Watson

 Am       Fmaj7       C              G              Am
   Headed down to Tienanmen but had tarried enough time 
           Fmaj7            C    G
Should’ve listened to the world turn
 Am           Fmaj7          C    
Told me the cheaters are watching 
   G             Am      Fmaj7       G
Scratch ticket Jesus insulting the sultan 

[Pre-Chorus]
               F                  C
But we got an offer to lessen the lesson learned
                                    Dm
Like kissing cousins kissing out of turn
                              G
If you gonna play, you gonna play
           C
The party lines

            F                        C
We gonna take back this town if it takes us all
                                     Dm   
And kid you look like you could be found
          G                    Esus/G#
For the moment we are the fall lines 

[Chorus]
(The F chord comes in on beat 2, after the word "mind")
         F     C              G                       Am
Our mind, our time, is still marked by the grains of intolerance
     F          C
Our lives, our fight
          G                           Esus/G#
Til we’re done, til we’re done, til we’re done, til we're done hey hey

Am F C G (2x)

[Verse]
 Am                           Fma7
It’s the United States of Discrimination 
      C                      G
The schools feed into the prisons
Am      Fmaj7              C                G
  So corporations more powerful than the government
Am          Fmaj7          C         G
  Give a teacher a banker’s salary, see how that goes
           Am        Fmaj7          C           G
See if we farm a land again in Kilimanjaro it snows
        Am           Fmaj7          C          G
You sleep in your Egyptian linen, 500 count thread
Am             Fmaj7  
  What’s the count of your dead?
            C           G                Am              Fmaj7
We are the eye of the needle fixing to mend this quilt of lies
            C           G              Am      Fmaj7
The lies ripped up on our bed, we’re coming in quick
         C                            G
We got Angela Davis on our lips and Mandela in our head

[Pre-Chorus] 
               F                  C
But we got an offer to lessen the lesson learned
                                    Dm
Like kissing cousins kissing out of turn
                               G
If you gonna play, you gonna play
           C
The party lines

            F                        C
We gonna take back this town if it takes us all
                                     Dm     
And kid you look like you could be found
          G                    Esus/G#
For the moment we are the fall lines 

[Chorus]
(F on beat 2, after word "mind")
      F        C              G                       Am
Our mind, our time, is still marked by the grains of intolerance
     F          C
Our lives, our fight
          G
Til we’re done, til we’re done, til we’re done, til we're done hey hey
F  C            G                   Am
  I lost my religion along with my innocence
      F          C
Our lives, our time 
G                                   Esus/G#
Til we’re done, til we’re done, til we’re done, til we're done

[Bridge] 
F
At least he got a body
C
And he’s a boy named Sue
         G
And the federalis sure ain’t no expert on love
Am
Why would we listen to you?

F
Oh, at least we got our bodies
C
We all a boy named Sue
        G                          
And we fight til it’s done til our borders are run
          Esus/G#
Til it's gardens not guns
                  Am
and life is anew

(One 4/4 measure of rest holding the Am)

[Bridge 2]

               Am
And it was a fight night 
        Fmaj7               C                G
And the prize fighter got caught like in a knife fight
           Am             Fmaj7                C         G
And it was all over the highlights when he got hit by a hard right
      Am          Fmaj7             C          G
Saw stars like lite-brite couldn’t see in his sight line
              Am            Fmaj7            C             G
Started his skydive from the high life like Pele playin’ Jai-lai
          Am          Fmaj7         C                 G
Shouted mayday to his heyday and a pell mell of the mêlée
          Am                  Fmaj7
And his Coroner was getting a payday
         C            G 
Needed Thompson from Mai Lai
        Am         Fmaj7              C             G          Am
Turnin guns on his own guys but it wasn’t (breath) maltovs and mai tais
     Fmaj7     C     G    
Just AKs and white lies  
       Am            Fmaj7         C              G                 Am              Fmaj7   
Tell Mt. Sinai to believe in I and I and you and you and not for an eye and eye and eye and 
           C            G
I ain’t a cap on your tooth
          Am                              Fmaj7             C             
But then again I ain’t debatin’ I'm just standing in their shoes
                    G                      Am            Fmaj7            
I’m just tryin to figure out which golden rule I should choose
            C                   G
We gettin’ high sighted by the tie guys
               Am              Fmaj
White collar crime pays, just look at the bylines 
         C                                G      
If you believe in anything, believe in occupying 
                 Am        Fmaj            G
Because it’s a rich man’s world, and we getting off the sidelines

[Chorus]
(Again, F is on beat two after word "mind")
      F        C              G                       Am
Our mind, our time, is still marked by the grains of intolerance
     F          C
Our lives, our fight
          G
Til we’re done, til we’re done, til we’re done, til we're done hey hey
F C          G                     Am
 I lost my religion along with my innocence
      F          C
Our lives, our fight 
G                                    Esus/G#
Til we’re done, til we’re done, til we’re done, til we're done 

[Outro 1]
F                        C
I might let the gallery down
                                     G
But there's people by the thousands outside
                      Am
And we are just getting by
F
I might
F                      C
Might let the gallery down
                                 G
