Life goes on here

I've been here once
I've been here twice
I don't know if the third's the fourth or if
The fifth's the fix
Sometimes I deal with numbers
And if you wanna count me
Count me out

Verse 4:

I don't need the time of day
Anytime with me's OK
I just don't want you using up my time

'Cause that's not right

                  ahh....

[repeat 3X:]
         Am
They're locking them up today
They're throwing away the key
  A
I wonder who it'll be tomorrow, you or me?

Am
We're all normal and we want our freedom
A                                 
Freedom... freedom... freedom... freedom
Am                                A
Freedom... freedom... freedom... freedom

[continue with Am-A progression to fade]

(spoken:) Alla God's chilluns gotta have dere freedom
