No Capo
G
Just look at that shopkeeper peddling his wares
D
Shouting his sales pitch, but nobody cares
Em
Don't you wonder what keeps him there, day after day?
C
Begging for gold as his hair turns to gray
G
Blindly they're bounding apace
D
Starving for mercy in a merciless place
Em
Only a fool would make martyrs from heathens
C
And find them so lively when they're barely breathing

Just barely breathing

G
Just look at that toymaker grinding his gears
D
Turning no profit but he doesn't care
Em
He keep smiles on faces day after day
C
The children keep sadness and suffering at bay

G
Blissfully bounding apace
D
Searching for mercy in a merciless place
Em
Only a monster makes fodder from saints
C
And finds them so worthless when they're full of grace

So full of grace

G
But what better use of hookers and thieves
D
Then greasing the wheels of perfect machines
Em
That hum into life a harmony of industry?
C
But what is the use of cutting them down
G                        D
To smother and choke the soul of our town?
Em                      C
I know there is another way

G
But, what is so wrong with giving them purpose?
D
(Just how could you weed them out?)
Em
(Degrading them without doubt)
C
A man like yourself could give to the worthless
G
(You're bleeding them dry)
D
(They live and die like you and I)
Em
Without the guidance of rulers and tyrants
C
(And under your guidance; the hands of a tyrant)

These people will just tear themselves apart

G
Just look at that charlatan steeped in deceit
D
A threat to the young
Em
To the old and the meek
C
Don't you wander what made him
G
So vicious, so sick?
D
So far out of balance?
Em
So cruel and so callous?
C
So married to malice?
