 You tell us that we're wrong 
Am           G               Am   G 
 You tell us not to sing our songs 
Am              G                 Am  Em 
 Nothing we can say will make you see 
Am                     Em                   Am  Em 
 You've got a heart of stone, you can never feel 
          Am           G                         Am Em 
You say, 'Oh, I'm not afraid, it can't happen to me 
Am              Em        Am            Em 
 I believe that life is a good thing (?)

 Your parents paid you through 
Am                     G                    Am  G 
 You've got a nice big car, nothing bothers you 
Am                     G                   Am  Em

 You live in the past and talk about war 
F                     G 
 And you dig your own grave, yeah 
F                           G 
 When it's a life you could save 
F                 G                    Am     G 
 So stop with the past, it's not gonna happen 
 
        Am                   G            
And you cry but you'll never fall

No no no, you're building a wall 
Am               G           Am    Em 
 Got to break it down, start again 
Am            Em                     Am  Em 
 You say, 'oh no, it won't happen to us' 
Am               Em                 Am        Em

 Why don't you go out there and do something useful? 
Am                       G                 Am    G
