National Myth

Against Me

 F#D#F#B
 All your glorious battles, what did they amount to, what did they prove?
 F#
 All for your pride of country,
 D#F#B
 All for your sacred democracy, rival national myths.
 F#D#F#B
 All for your rich ancestry of warmongers, you hailed as heroes.
 F#
Don't believe in your jingoistic pride,
 D#F#B
That fuels your imperialistic genocide

Riff                                          E|-x--x--x--x--x--|
When all I cry for  is Anarchy                                    B|-x--2--x--x--x--|
Riff                           G|-4--x--4--3--4--|
When all I plea for is to be free.                    D|-x--x--x--x--x--|
Riff                                     A|-2--2--2--2--2--|
Their slavery will never get the best of me.                      E|-x--x--x--x--x--|

Riff
Their restrictions will never imprison me
Riff
Their poisons will never disable me.
Riff
Love is the force that drives me.

 F#D#F#B
 A better world will emerge out of the blood and carnage of the past.
 F#D#
Considering tens of millions lost their lives in conflict,
 F#B
Surely it's not too much to ask?
 F#
Wars of religion, nationalism,
 D#F#B
made all the more devastating by advances in perverted science.
 F#D#
 Led the innocent to early deaths, soldiers to shallow graves.
 F#B
How can you sleep at night?

Riff
When all I cry for is to be free.
Riff
When all I plea for is Anarchy.
Riff
Their slavery will never get the best of me.
Riff
Their restrictions will never imprison me.
Riff
Their poisons will never disable me.
Riff
Love is the force that drives me.
Riff
Hatred will never overtake me.
