15I got a basket full of lemons and they all taste the same
A16 window and a pigeon with a broken wing
16You can spend your whole life workin' for something
17Just to have it taken away
18
19People walk around pushin' back their debts
20Wearin' paychecks like necklaces and bracelets
21Talkin' 'bout nothin', not thinkin' 'bout death
22Every little heartbeat, every little breath
23
24People walk a tightrope on a razor's edge
25Carryin' their hurt and hatred and weapons
26It could be a bomb or a bullet or a pen
27Or a thought or a word or a sentence
28
29There ain't no reason things are this way
30It's how they' always been and they intend to stay
31I don't know why I say the things I say
32But I say them anyway

       A#29                   F30
41Prison walls still standin' tall
     C31                      Dm32
42Some things never change at all
    C33            A#34                       F35
43Keep on buildin' prisons, gonna fill them all

47Workin' your fingers bare to the bones
              C39                        Dm40
48Breakin' your back, make you sell your soul
   C41   A#42                      F43
49Like a lung that's filled with coal
            C44
50Suffocatin' slow
51
52
53The wind blows wild and I may move
54But politicians lie and I am not fooled
55You don't need no reason or a three-piece suit
56To argue the truth
57
58The air on my skin and world under my toes
59Slavery stitched into the fabric of my clothes
60Chaos and commotion wherever I go
61Love I try to follow
62
63
                          Dm45      A#46          C47
