["Racist Society"]

        A                       B        E
Did you know that you live in a racist society
        A                          B
Did you know you're the privileged class
    C#(pm)             B(pm)                A(pm)
And everybody else is essentially taking it up the ass

        E                      A
Did you know that you could be free
        E                               A
Did you know that's not the way that it has to be
        E                         A
Did you know you can still change everything

        C#(pm)                             B(pm)
Did you know that there's no such thing as equality
                A(pm)     B(pm)               E
And there might never be         if you don't change
        A                       B           E
Did you know that you live in a   war zone (culturally)
        A                           B
Did you know that your parents were f**ked
          C#(pm)                    B(pm)           A(pm)
When they taught you how to fear anybody who wasn't white enough

        E                      A
Did you know that you could be free
        E                               A
Did you know that's not the way that it has to be
        E                         A
Did you know you can still change everything

C#(pm)                      B(pm)
      Did you know that the older you get
        A(pm)                    B(pm)
It gets easier to blame somebody else for your own mess
C#(pm)                      B(pm)              A(pm)
      Did you know that the Jews don't run the world
              B(pm)
And all black men aren't criminals
C#(pm)                       B(pm)        A(pm)
      Did you know there's a lot of money to be made
     B(pm)           C#(pm)            B(pm)
A(pm)            B(pm)
All wound up and tense inside 'cause

E            B              C#            A
Big business runs the government and it's not good business
E            B        A(pm)
  If we burn down the government so they keep us occupied
E            B            C#               A
  With moron TV shows and sh*tty beer that wipes out brain cells
E             B                  A
  And whining about Congress and stupid f**king income taxes

C#
  And if that's not enough
A
  To keep your mind off of
E                                B
  The way you're getting dicked around
C#
  They fill you with fear and hate
A
  Give you someone to blame
E
  For all your problems
          B                        A
While the country's going down the f**king toilet

       E                       A
Do you know what they think of you
       E                          A
Do you know how contemptuous they are of you
       E                 A
Do you know how easy you are to fool
C#(pm)                                               B(pm)
       You're like a dog doing after a ball that was never thrown
                       A(pm)        B(pm)         E(pm)
Well guess what you're on your own           Good luck
