Don Henley

Em             C#m7b5   C7
While you were sleeping they came and took it all away
Em                C#m7b5   C7
The lanes and the meadows, the places where you used to play

E                  Em C#m
It was an inside job  by the well-connected
C7
Your little protest summarily rejected
E                  Em  C#m
It was an inside job like it always is
C7
Chalk it up to business as usual

While we are dreaming this little island disappears
While you are looking the other way they'll take your right to own your own ideas

And it's an inside job, favors collected
Your trusted servants have left you unprotected
It was an inside job like it always is
Just chalk it up to business as usual

A7                                 F#7
You think that you're so smart but you don't have a f**king clue
A7                              F#7
What those men up in the towers are doing to me and you
                 A7
And they'll keep doin' it and doin' it
     F#7
And doin' it and doin' it And doin' it and doin' it and doin' it
         A7                            C6            Em
Until we all wake up wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up

I know what I've done wrong I am acquainted with the night
I know how hard it is to always walk out in the light
And it's an inside job to learn about forgiving
It's an inside job to hang on to the joy of living

They know the road by which you came, they know your mother's maiden name
And what you had for breakfast and what you've hidden in the mattress
Insect politics, indifferent universe
Bang your head against the wall but apathy is worse
It's an inside job, It's an inside job
It's an inside job  Yeh, yeah
