Cm  Cm Bb Cm  F  Gm  Cm  Cm Bb Cm  N.C

[Chorus 1]
       Cm                          Cm Bb Cm
Securing the peace then preparing for war,
               F                         Gm
And the people don`t know what they`re fighting for,
       Cm                          Cm Bb Cm
Securing the peace then preparing for war,
               F                         Gm
And the people don`t know what they`re fighting for.

[Verse 1]
        Cm                        Cb Bb Cm
In peacetime some bury their fathers,
       F                      Gm
In war time some bury their son`s,
         Cm                       Cm Bb Cm
The dead are all labelled as martyrs,
           F                     Gm
And the living inherit the bullet and the gun.

[Chorus 2]
       Cm                           
Securing the peace then preparing for war,
               F                         Gm
And the people don`t know what they`re fighting for,
       Cm                          
Securing the peace then preparing for war,
               F                         Gm
And the people don`t know what they`re fighting for.

[Verse 2]
N.C
If religious crusade is your calling,
N.C
Ask your god if he`ll stop the bombs falling,
N.C
On the heads Of the poor that were shattered today,
N.C
They were wailing so load you can`t hear yourself think.

[Chorus 3]
       Cm
Securing the peace then preparing for war,
               F                         Gm
And the people don`t know what they`re fighting for,
       Cm
Securing the peace then preparing for war,
N.C
And the people don`t know what they`re fighting for.

[Verse 3]
N.C
A single death is tragic a million a statistic,
N.C
To say the war is fought for peace sounds cynically sadistic.

[Saxophone Middle]
Cm  Cm Bb Cm  F  Gm F  Cm  Cm Bb N.C   Gm F

[Verse 3]
N.C
Take your prayers and take your blaspheming,
               F                      Gm    F
Take the graves where the mothers are screaming,
     Cm                            Cm Bb Cm
You can`t convince me that you feel the loss,
         F                         Gm
The last real Christian you killed on the cross.

[Chorus 4]
     Cm
Securing the peace then preparing for war,
               F
And the people don`t know what they`re fighting for,
     Cm
Securing the peace while preparing for war,
               F
And the people don`t know what they`re fighting for.

[Verse 4]
          Cm                     Cm Bb Cm
And while the world plays hide and seek,
   F                  Gm
To cover up the violence,
         Cm                Cm Bb Cm               
Innocence claims the right to speak.
       F                  Gm
And guilty the right to silence.

[Saxophone Middle 2]
Cm  Cm  F  F  Cm  Cm  F  Gm

[Outro]
N.C
Securing the peace while preparing for war,
N.C
Securing the peace while preparing for war,
     Cm
Securing The peace while preparing for war,
        F
And the people don`t know what they`re fighting for,
     Cm
Securing the peace when preparing for war,
N.C
And the people don`t know what they`re fighting for.
