                "Am                  C                F           Am G
It's in the air you breathe and it's also in the water
Am                       C                F                 Am  G
It's something you can't see, you've been warned of by your mothers
Am                C                          F            Am  G
You've had enough deceit, You know enough to see Join the others
Am                    C                 F                 Am  G
When you could hardly breathe, you were wondering why you bothered
         F             G         Am                C
And they gave us seven days to renounce our wicked ways
F                 G               Am                 C
Too late to make amends becase we both know how this ends

                      F G Am G

  C                   F              G                          C
So do the right thing or do nothing. What will you do when they come for you?
C                  F       G                          C
Or just do what is easier. What will you do when they come for you?
C                         F                      G                          C
That's what I read what I swear they said to me. Nine times out of ten they lied to me
C                          F                   G        G
And after all they had the guts to say Son, no one will save you now
Am          F            C                G
We want it, they got it. They claim we'll die without it
Am            F                 C  G
But something tells me they are wrong

                       F G


   C                          F                  G                   C
So what will you do when they call your name and you're not ready to go?
C             F                G                 C
Everyone will stare at you and tell you what you know
	    C                   B                     Am               G
That you're in too deep and you can't quite keep your secrets, one and all
   F          G             C           Am
We might just make it after all, on our own
   F          G             C           C
We might just make it after all
           F               G       C               C
But we had one foot on the gas and one foot in the grave
C            F                G              C
Everyone was laughing when we said we had it made
C            F                G              G
Everyone was laughing when we said we had it made

                  C C F G


         F             G         Am                C
They gave us seven days to renounce our wicked ways
F                 G               Am                 C
Too late to make amends becase we both know how this ends


C                          F                          G                          C
Started with six or seven, moved on to eight or nine. What will you do when they come 
you?
C                        F                      G                          C
Nobody seemed to notice, nobody seemed to mind. What will you do when they come for you?
C                                      F              G                             C
Little miss demissed can't miss like a detuned radio. I cannot believe you when you tell 
what you know
C                                  F                       G                             
   C
And nothing will be broken if your house is made of stone. But you will know as I do it 
never be a home


Am          F            C                G
We want it, they got it. They claim we'll die without it
Am            F                 C  G
But something tells me they are wrong

                    F G


   C                          F                  G                   C
So what will you do when they call your name and you're not ready to go?
C             F                G                 C
Everyone will stare at you and tell you what you know
	    C                   B                     Am               G
That you're in too deep and you can't quite keep your secrets, one and all
   F          G             C           Am
