"What we've got here is failure to communicate..."


1st verse:
Em Em                               G G
Look at your young men fighting, look at your women crying
Em Em                                G G     -            D/F# D/F#      -

G2 G2: Riff B B

Em Em                               G G
Look at the hate we're breeding, look at the fear we're feeding
Em Em                                   G G     -          D/F# D/F#      -

Pre-chorus:
             E5 E5        G G                      ( D/F# D/F#* )
My hands are tied, the billions shift from side to side
        E5 E5                                         G G      -            D D*      -
And the wars go on with brainwashed pride, for the love of God and our human rights
    E5 E5                                   G G                      ( D/F# D/F#* )
And all these things are swept aside, by bloody hands time can't deny
        E5 E5                                G G      -          D D       -
And are washed away by your genocide, and history hides the lies of our civil wars
