Verse: 
          Cm                Gm
  Now the future's staring at me
 
D#                      A#            
  Like a vision from the past
 
        Cm                     Gm
  And I know these crumbs they sold me

D#                            A#
  They're never going to last

  Though we know the culture war
  
D#                         A# 
  We don't know what it's for

            Cm                Gm
  But we've lived a southern strategy
     
      D#                     F             D/F#     D#

  They're paying for our crimes

      Cm               Gm
  You left while I was sleeping
 
D#                      A#
  You said it's damning

           Cm            Gm
  Oh, I've read a little Bible

      D#                       A#
  You see what you want to see

      Cm             Gm
  The dominoes, they never fell
 
      D#                  A#
  Our bodies they still burn
 
    Cm              Gm
  I throw my hand into the fire

D#                   G
   In your culture war

D#                   A#
   We'll be soldiers for mommy and dad

F                       D/F#
