Intro :
A

Verse 1 :
A
Can't believe what I'm reading when I open up these sheets
Dbm
They've got police getting busier, cleaning up the streets
F#m
'Cos that's what we need now to make the place neat
D
Take the homeless man's rags, no sleeping bags no place to sleep

A
Because we're far too civilised around here to see
Dbm
An unkempt human being, a broken human being
F#m
Open up your eyes, are you seeing what I'm seeing, yeah
D
A misplaced, made to feel disgraced human being

A
Why it's not enough to just pretend that you don't see him
Dbm
You can't stand the sight so you've got to disappear him
F#m
Well I hope you feel more comfortable doing your sight seeing
E
Taking pictures, buying fucking Union Jack magnets and key rings

Chorus :

A
Life give me something to believe in
Dbm
No lies, just something to believe in
F#m
Am I the only one that's grieving
E A
These things that belong to you and me that they are thieving

Verse 2 :


And how long until they build a wall and call it a private city
Dbm
They got walls made out of laws to exclude you and me
F#m
And now they take away our right, to fight those laws for free
D
No legal aid, no more justice, only for the wealthy

A
Oh, but they're trying to build a more healthy society
Dbm
So that everybody knows you don't get nothing for free
F#m D
No scroungers, no living room loungers living off me

A
Can I suggest you're seeing exactly what they want you to see
Dbm
A monster, a cancer, a threat to your liberty
F#m
How about a scapegoat for their crimes, a victim of the times
D
Everything that your not meant to be

A
How about a badly prepared, scared human being
Dbm
How about a necessary cog in their economic machine
F#m
'Cos if there was no unemployment tell me how would things be
D
Do you still feel lucky to be working 40 hours a week

A
We're like a caged bird and they got us by the beak
Dbm
Give us enough to eat, enough to sleep, enough to tweet
F#m
But there's not enough space between the ground and our feet
E
We're singing songs of freedom but we're not flying free

Chorus :

A
So, life give me something to believe in
Dbm
No lies, just something to believe in
F#m
Am I the only one that's grieving
E A
These things that belong to you and me that they are thieving

Verse 3 :


And this whole world's got me hurting, got me feeling undeserving
Dbm
Got me questioning my worth in this sad system that we're serving
F#m
Find no place in this twisted race for property
D
Is making profit the sole aim of humanity

A
Protect the banks, bring out the tanks if they disagree
Dbm
While we're at it let's invest some more in military
F#m D
All our friends have shares so why shouldn't we

A
And now the markets are demanding that we give away for free
Dbm
Everything our grandparents fought for to some company
F#m D
It's called wealth creation, yeah, it's more efficient you see

A
Well sorry, I forgot the free market would set us free
Dbm
I forgot to only think about (I man) and me
F#m
While brothers and sisters have nothing to eat
D
Brothers and sisters, at home and overseas
A Dbm
So I can't lie down and I wont let it be
F#m D
While we are working for a market that doesn't work for we

Outro :

A F#m
These things that they're thieving, they're yours and mine
E
You know that they're still stealing, but there's still time
D
If you feel this way too
A F#m
These things that they're thieving, they're yours and mine
E
You know that they're still stealing, but there's still time
D A
If you feel this way too
