Key: F#

Verse 1:

F# B F# B We were raised to be just what we are in case you didn't know F# B C# B If I offered up to you some proof would you let your anger show F# B F# B Or would you let your mind to sleep kept warm by simple novelties F# B C# A history that's really not your own F# C# Is freedom just a privilege of hatred guaranteed

Pre-Chorus

F# B Is compassion just a second thought of hope brought to it's knees F# B G#m A# Can dignity see fit to work past all it doesn't want to see?
B C# F# Seven guns for degradation B C# F# Three cheers for cruel tradition B C# F# B C# Red, white and black eyes forever

Verse 2:

F# B Somewhere south of respect tonight F# B This tension's wrapped up nice and tight F# B C# The static's felt but never makes a sound F# B A man finds nothing left to eat F# B And sells his body on the cheap F# B C# As klansmen flood a conference hall downtown

Pre-Chorus

F# C# This T.V. has the answers, let fashion have your eyes A# B This job is your achievement, this bible your pride F# B G#m A# Can dignity see fit to try and fix what it knows fear can't hide
B C# F# Seven guns for degradation B C# F# Three cheers for cruel tradition B C# F# B C# Red, white and black eyes forever

Bridge:

D#m B F# B C# D#m I think of a story my father told me about a fella he knew in the army D#m B F# C# The pentagon traded him checks for both his legs B C# F# 'Fuck the States' was the last thing father heard he had said D#m B F# Still it's said that this war was won B C# D#m Well, I refuse to be just another dead nation's bastard son
C# B F# B C# Outro F# I have eyes that see, I have a mind that thinks A# B I have a mouth that speaks and god damn it will A# B Beacause I've had enough of all this shit about C# 'making do' 'Playing ball' 'the way things are' and 'dealing with it' F# C# F# B Mixing pop and politics, he asks me what the use is F# B I'm not into making excuses C# B F# And I'll die the day I find I'm fucking useless
