Living on a Thin Line   Kinks

[D]All the stories have been told of ki[C]ngs and days of [G]old
But there's no Eng[D]land now (there's no E[F]ngland n[C]ow)
A[D]ll the wars that were won and lost
So[C]mehow do[G]n't seem to matter very m[D]uch anymore  [F]   [C]
A[D]ll the lies we were told (all the lies we were told)
[C]All the lives of the pe[G]ople running round and c[D]astles that burned [F]   [C]
N[D]ow I see change but in[C]side we're the sa[G]me as w[D]e ever were

[D]Living on a thin line [C]ooo[G]ohh tell me now what are we supposed to do[D]?
[D]Living on a thin line [C]ooo[G]ohh tell me now what are we supposed to d[D]o?
[D]Living on a thin line, liv[C]ing this way, each d[G]ay's a dream
What am I, what are we supposed to do?[D]
L[D]iving on a thin line, o[C]oooh[G]h tell me now what are we supposed to d[D]o?

[C]Now an[G]other century near[D]ly gone (gone, gone)
[C]What are we go[G]nna lea[D]ve for the young?
What we coul[C]dn't do, or what we wou[G]ldn't do, it's a cri[D]me but does it matter?
Does it mat[C]ter much, does it ma[G]tter much to you?
Does it ev[D]er really matter? Yes, it really really matters!
Living on a thin line oooohh tell me now what are we supposed to do?
Living on a thin line oooohh tell me now what are we supposed to do?

[F]Then another leader says, [G]break their hearts and break some h[Em]eads
Is there nothing we can [G]say or do[F]?  [Am]
B[Am]lame the future on the pa[G]st, always lost in bloody g[C]uts
And when they're go[D]ne, it's me and you

Living on a thin line oooohh tell me now what are we supposed to do?
Living on a thin line oooohh tell me now what are we supposed to do?
[D]Living on a thin line [F]oooo[C]hh  [D]
