[Intro]
G      Bb          C                      G Bb
Coming straight to ya, Vultures of Culture
   C
September 2009
        G        Bb
This is Medicine For the People
C                                                         G
Bringing it to ya with Sister Golden Hair Surprise on the road
      Bb                 C
We be passing through Montana these days, brah
              G          Bb
Oh, but we in Idaho right now, man
        C
We been postin' up on the side of the river
            G               Bb
With a good fireplace and a marshmallow bag
        C
And our nachos, and our fudge shop, deluxe graham crackers
    G             Bb                      C
You know, and our bottle of water and our Santitas chips
           G       Bb  C
Yo, we got Nalu on the wiener


[Hook]
   G   Bb             C
It all starts to make sense
   G   Bb             C
It all starts to make sense
               G                 Bb         C
With all these omens, we've been callin' it in
   G   Bb             C
It all starts to make sense


[Verse 1]
       G            Bb
All my thoughts and particularly my prayers
     C
Have not forgotten the indigenous
        G                  Bb              C
For the Western man's been workin' so hard against us
         G
With his Western medicine
        Bb                        C
And his land management and his fences, uh huh
       G                       Bb
Or the way he protects and the way he preserves
          C
Never the way he neglects the people who came first
   G              Bb           C
Ya know, the same ones that he massacred
   G   Bb             C
It all starts to make sense
            G                  Bb                  C
Where we're goin', where we're at, and where we've been, uh huh
   G   Bb             C
It all starts to make sense


[Verse 2]
      G            Bb
Well, creator, the behavior
       C                                          G
Of the collective youth definitely seems to be in favor
       Bb            C
Of the western man's invasion
                G
See him pumpin' fear like an IV
Bb
Spreadin' it like a disease
    C
And all the while building a clueless army
   G                         Bb
Of God-fearing youth with no knowledge of the truth
          C
And their selfishness is so ugly
    G   Bb             C
And it all starts to make sense
             G                   Bb           C
Who we gotta talk to if we wanna survive this mess
   G   Bb             C
It all starts to make sense


[Verse 3]
G                    Bb
Itty-bitty economies based on geography
C
Fueled by spectators and their money
          G                    Bb       C
And their need for things that will not last
        G                  Bb                     C
So go on, build a hotel, a gift shop in the wilderness, haha
G                Bb
Makin' a profit, capitalizin' on it
    C
And all the while trampling on everything that is sacred
    G   Bb             C
And it all starts to make sense
        G             Bb                            C
Why the Western man destroys things he doesn't understand, uh huh
   G   Bb             C
It all starts to make sense
          G                     Bb                C
All these patterns and wasteful destructive practices


[Verse 4]
              G                     Ab
Livin' like a third world country inside this country
C
Forgive the government that puts the people in poverty
       G                   Ab
And it bothers me when the people are goin' hungry
    C
And corporate companies have got their cupboards full of groceries
     G                         Ab
It's disgusting how you can do nothing
    C
And complain about the situation in which you're living
    G   Bb             C
And it all starts to make sense
                    G                   Ab                C
They're vultures of culture and they're pickin' on all my friends, uh huh
   G   Bb             C
It all starts to make sense
      G           Bb   C
Oh, indigenous imprisonment, uh huh



[Verse 5]
       G                       Bb
Well I dedicate my life to the people who need the light
          C
Help them rise above the scam on the land and their lives
        G                             Bb
And I'm cuttin' like a knife, all the lies by the slice
    C
Independent of this democracy is really worth the bite
     G                            Bb
My request in reasonable, a tribe undefeatable
  C
Ambition to keep movin' toward solutions that are feasible
     G                     Bb
It's unbelievable, all the slow-moving people
               C
And they could care less, just as long as they are comfortable
          G                    Bb
It's unforgivable, because the conditions now are critical
    C
And whether or not you're ready, we are now approachin' a pinnacle
     G                Bb
It's difficult to say exactly what to do
        C
But the change begins with me and I reflect it back to you
    G       Bb      C
And you and you and you
                                  G Bb C
Come on, man, make the movement move (Yeah)
                    G Bb C
Make the movement move (Yeah)


[Hook]
   G   Bb             C
It all starts to make sense
   G   Bb             C
It all starts to make sense
               G             Bb               C
With all these omens and the moon phase we're in
   G   Bb             C
It all starts to make sense


[Verse 5 reprise]
       G                       Bb
Well I dedicate my life to the people who need the light
          C
Help them rise above the scam on the land and their lives
        G                             Bb
And I'm cuttin' like a knife, all the lies by the slice
    C
Independent of this democracy is really worth the bite
     G                            Bb
My request in reasonable, a tribe undefeatable
  C
Ambition to keep movin' toward solutions that are feasible
     G                     Bb
It's unbelievable, all the slow-moving people
               C
And they could care less, just as long as they are comfortable
          G                    Bb
It's unforgivable, because the conditions now are critical
    C
And whether or not you're ready, we are now approachin' a pinnacle
     G                Bb
It's difficult to say exactly what to do
        C
But the change begins with me and I reflect it back to you
    G       Bb      C
And you and you and you
                                  G Bb C
Come on, man, make the movement move (Yeah)
                    G Bb C
Make the movement move (Yeah)
                    G Bb C
Make the movement move (Yeah)
                    G Bb C
Make the movement move (Yeah)


[Outro]
   G   Ab             C
It all starts to make sense
   G   Ab             C
It all starts to make sense
   G   Ab             C
It all starts to make sense
   G   Ab             C
It all starts to make sense

(the change begins with me and I reflect it back to you)
   G   Ab             C
It all starts to make sense

(the change begins with me and I reflect it back to you)
   G   Ab             C
It all starts to make sense

(the change begins with me and I reflect it back to you)
   G   Ab             C
It all starts to make sense
   G   Ab             C
It all starts to make sense
