    D                A                            G          
To  a  place in the past  We've been passed cast out of   wooo oooh

      A7       Dm      A7                       Dm 
The powers that be    forces us to live like we do 
    A            Dm           A7                       Dm   Dm/Dm-f      A7+d/A
 Bring me to my knees when I see what they've done to you
Dm        A7                    Dm    A7                    Dm
Well I'll die as I stand here today knowing that deep in my heart
A7                        Dm      A7              A   E B A B
Their fortune to ruin one day     for making  us part

E                    B               A      
Like a break in the battle was your part  woo oooh  
         E       B              A   
in the wretched life a  lonely heart
                     A           B                   B                 E   B E B
