(Brett now roughly plays the intro picking over the chords sometimes improvising. Sounds
if you do the whole song in the picking from the beginning, but chords sound good aswell)
[Verse 1] 
There ain't no r[Bb]eason things are this w[F]ay
It's how they' always [C]been and they intend to [Dm]stay
I c[C]an't [Bb]explain why we live this [F]way
We do it every [C]day
[Verse 2] 
Preachers on the [Bb]podium speakin' of [F]saints
Prophets on the [C]sidewalk beggin' for [Dm]change
Old [C]ladies [Bb]laughin' from the fire [F]escape
Cursin' my [C]name
(chords remain the same for all verses)
[Verse 3] 
I got a basket full of lemons and they all taste the same
A window and a pigeon with a broken wing
You can spend your whole life workin' for something
Just to have it taken away
[Verse 4] 
People walk around pushin' back their debts
Wearin' paychecks like necklaces and bracelets
Talkin' 'bout nothin', not thinkin' 'bout death
Every little heartbeat, every little breath
[Verse 5] 
People walk a tightrope on a razor's edge
Carryin' their hurt and hatred and weapons
It could be a bomb or a bullet or a pen
Or a thought or a word or a sentence
[Repeat Verse 1] 
[Cborus] 
But love will come set me [Dm]free[Bb] [C]
Love will come set me f[Dm]ree, [Bb]I do [C]believe
Love will come set me f[Dm]ree, [Bb]I know it [C]will
Love will come set me f[Dm]ree, [Bb]yes[C]
[Verse 6] 
Prison walls still standin' tall
Some things never change at all
Keep on buildin' prisons, gonna fill them all
Keep on buildin' bombs, gonna drop them all
[Verse 7] 
Workin' your fingers bare to the bones
Breakin' your back, make you sell your soul
Like a lung that's filled with coal
Suffocatin' slow
[Verse 8] 
The wind blows wild and I may move
But politicians lie and I am not fooled
You don't need no reason or a three-piece suit
To argue the truth
[Verse 9] 
The air on my skin and world under my toes
Slavery stitched into the fabric of my clothes
Chaos and commotion wherever I go
Love I try to follow
[repeat Cborus] 
[Repeat Verse 1]
