All these inanimate places feel like they're changing  
C                                                        G 
The kids all lined up on the wall like they're ready to die  
C                                                     F 
These arms are sending it's like they just rearrange them  
C                                                       G  
We were caged up like animals, questioned and ready to cry 
C                                                F  
Cause I was just 13 when I got my first take of danger  
  C                                                     G  
Standing by the church, I had a bottle and a pen in my hand  
           C                                                          Am 
Oh I said 'Father, I'm sorry. I just don't know what to do with this anger' 
        Dm                                                     G 
This behavior is correctable, I know this wasn't part of your plan 
            C                                         F 
But little fucks like us, we were always receiving instruction  
              C                                                         G 
And you could burn off our clothes, you could wash out the ink and the dye 
              C                                                          F 
But you can't look me in the eye and say you don't feel like a little destruction  
         Am                       G                         C 
And the kids are lined up on the wall and they're ready to die 
         Am                       G                         C 
And the kids are lined up on the wall and they're ready to die 


C                                               F 
All these days just seem like they're getting longer 
C                                                G  
The view from our room is a gloomy and overcast grey 
    C                                             F 
The weakness we left behind seems to be getting stronger 
                C                                                         G 
I swear there's something in the air, and I don't know what anyone could say 
      C                                        F  
Cause I saw the news this morning, there was another 
C                                                 G  
Boy by the side of the road, he had a gun in his hand  
           C                                                      Am 
I thought 'What could you say to make it ever make sense to his mother?' 
     Dm                                                       G 
Oh ma'am, he was excitable, we were just trying to make him a man  
C                                                           F 
But the day will come when it falls like a cheap house of plastic 
        C                                                          G 
And the cards that were dealt, will be tossed like a storm in the sky 
             C                                              F 
Cause you can only lie so long before you get something drastic 
         Am                       G                         C  
And the kids are lined up on the wall and they're ready to die 
         Am                       G                         C 
And the kids are lined up on the wall and they're ready to die
