This is original I wrote a few weeks back that was inspired by my working nights at a shop in downtown seattle and also current politics. Just to warn you, I'm a huge lefty and opinionated bastard. I'm sure this will offend some, and thats ok. This is art, not kindergarten.

Anyway, here are the lyrics and chords. I am on this new kick of trying to actually write down the things I write.

Recorded on an iphone 5s

C F G
All alone it’s 4 am Seattle time
C F D
Cruising the sidewalk under that sodium vapor lights
F C
You can see the shadows
F C
They can see you too
F C G
But mostly everyone lives in a different world
C F G C
Sing halleluja as god lets someone else slip through the cracks

C F G C
Sitting on your couch you go and you go to flick on the evening news
C F G C
Ain’t nothing wrong but what do you suppose they’re gonna tell you?
F C
About mountains of crack
F C
A new terrorist attack
F C G
Meanwhile someone shoots up a school
C F G C
Sing hallelujah as the ones you trust the most try to terrify you

F G
And what do we do to help ourselves?
C C/B A-
Or indeed help our fellow man?
F G
Nothing
C
They keep us too scared for that

F G C
So we let human human beings living in doorways and shacks
F G C
Eat from the garbage and smoke their meth from a sack
F C

We are told: “they aren’t like you.
F C
You deserve what’s best.”
F C G
You never ask yourself what the real difference is
C F G C
Sing Hallelujah, cause I guess that god has your back

F G
And what do we do to help ourselves?
C C/B A-
Or indeed help our fellow man?
F G
Nothing
C
They keep us too scared for that

C F G C
So we help the rich get richer and the poor, well, they can fuck themselves
C F G C
It’s manifest destiny run amok, put your conscience on the shelf
F C
But what is the difference?
F C
We all bleed the same.
F C G
You can tell yourself you’re not but it’s a lie
C F G C
Sing Hallelujah as you help your human being die
