[Intro]
E   C#m   G#m  F#
...................

[Verse 1]
             E     C#m
I've seen enough of it
    G#m          
The sides are all cemented
         F#
Their incentives look the same
          E                  C#m  
Are they vetted in the same ways?
        G#m                  
As the little guy puts blood and tears
      F#                                 E  
Into pushing deadweight on the capital steps
         C#m         G#m            
Bleeding out for a caricature of a '50s salesman
 F#                            E   
Hare checklist, tickin' every box
          F#
Dead for what?

[Chorus]
  E                           C#m
Standing on the side, I never was the silent type
         G#m                              F#  
All the endless grey conundrums that are painted black and white
           E                               C#m  
I heard a hundred million voices sound the same both left and right
              G#m          F#
We're still a long way off....
                E           F#
We're still a long way off.....

[Verse 2]
            E      C#m
Some get along with it
      G#m
They drag around from town to town
        F#                              E          C#m    
With a pretty lie that hoodwinked many of my loved ones
      G#m                          F#                         E                        C#m     
And I owe it to my folks for giving me an understanding of a world that shot my people down
     G#m                     F#                                     E
The hungry and divided play into the hands of the man who put them there
       F#
So it goes

[Chorus]
  E                           C#m
Standing on the side, I never was the silent type
         G#m                              F#  
All the endless grey conundrums that are painted black and white
           E                               C#m  
I heard a hundred million voices sound the same both left and right
              G#m          F#
We're still a long way off....
                E           C#m G#m F#
We're still a long way off............. 
               E           C#m  G#m  F#
We're still a long way off...............

[Chorus]
   E                          C#m
Standing on the side, I never was the silent type
          G#m                             F#
All the endless grey conundrums that are painted black and white
            E                              C#m
I heard a hundred million voices sound the same both left and right
               G#m         F#
We're still a long way off.....
                E           C#m G#m F#
We're still a long way off............. 
               E           C#m  G#m  F#   E
We're still a long way off...................
