just to see if they worked

and daughters

numbered us to sort us
FM7 Raped us, scorned us,
E E/G#
to break us they bought us
Am Am7 Third world kidneys for captains

of industry
FM7 Uprising in the street,
E E/G#
corruption in the ministry
Am Am7 A blowj*b brought about the fall

of a dynasty

Am Am7 Set 'em on the students, turned

'em on the kids and

for what they did!
[Verse 14] Am And if they try to deny
then an eye for an eye, the
FM7 Government and church on which
E E/G#
we try to rely, both
Am Am7 Rob us 'til it hurts chasing lie

after lie like
FM7 E E/G# Astronauts chasing a pie in the sky, they Am Landed on the moon but can't
seem to return there
FM7 Makes some question if they
E E/G#
ever really were there
Am Am7 And if they were there now

and they looked back
FM7 E Could we look them in the eye,
could we look back?
Am Am7 'Cause when we look back at

what we have done
FM7 E E/G# Can you believe what we've become? [Outro] Am Am7 And as we walk into the sun FM7 E E/G# Can you believe what we have become? Am Am7 As we walk into the sun... FM7 E Am
