[intro] Em G (x2)
Em                                    G
 There stood the fence that penned me in when I was younger
Em                        G 
 This was the house where we all stayed
Em                           G
 There was a tree we used to hang out under
Em                  G
 This was the place where I played
      A                   Em7
 But now that's gone so I have to wonder
A                         Em7
 Is it worth the price we pay?
A                      Em7
 A long range test has put us under
A              -stop-      Em  G Em G
 And made us go away, go away...

Em                              G
 This was the town where all my friends and I had grown up
Em                   G 
 The only place I've ever known
Em                            G
 A long gray street with some houses built on it
Em                     G
 Less than perfect but it was home
A                    Em7
 Now it's gone and I curse it in my darkness
A                            Em7
 This is the cross I have to bear
A                        Em7
 We pay the price of our own injustice
A              -stop-
 We made us go nowhere
         Em G     Em  
 Go nowhere, nowhere

repeat intro
Em                      G
 This was our earth our garden of eden
Em                      G
 Took what we could and left her there bleeding
Em                      G 
 And what became of the hopes and the dreams
Em                           G
 Did they die with us 'cause that's how it seems
A                             Em7
Here comes the rain can't you taste the acid?
A                    Em7
 Or has it left you numb?
A                         Em7            
 This is the moral to the story I offer
A                -stop-
 Can you hear me son...
                 Em   G
Or have you gone away
  Em G
  Em G fades
