Am G ...So much pain we bring on from another life
Am G ...So much love we bring on from the other side
Am G ...So much knowledge we had to give up and forget
Am G ...And old friendship we had to lose ties and reset
F ..But we go on, and on, and on, and on
Am ...Never knowing why we're here
Am G C ...But we are back and doing all over again!
How many wars are we still going to get to fight?
How many brothers will starve now as part of our plight?
How many clusters we are droppings and missing ground zero?
In tough times like this we find out who are heroes
But now we bomb, and bomb, and bomb, and bomb
Until they are all to smederings
Then we come back and they are the one blowing us out!
... Who was black now is white
F Am ... Who was sad now is bright
F Am ... Who was up now is down
F Am ... Who was serious now is clown
.....Then defendant, now plaintiff
F Am ....... Then inmate, now sheriff
F Am ... Then gentile, now a Jew
F Am . Who was I? Who were you?
What if I told you that I used to be king of France
What if I told you that we used to be in romance
You used to beg and to plea to stay close to my sight
I used to neglect your feelings and think I was right
But now you laugh, and laugh, and laugh, and laugh
You don't believe a word I say
Now I'm the one on my knees begging you for a stay
With every action we take will start a reaction
Plucking a flower will disturb a path of a star
The word karma in Sanskrit really means action
When we start this reaction we can't escape too far
So bring it on, and on, and on, and on
Be careful with all the steps you take
Or we will be back here to try over again.
