Verse :
      Ab             Fm      Ab           Fm
Just look at that shopkeeper peddling his wares
B              Cm              B       Cm
Shouting his sales pitch, but nobody cares
            Ab         Fm              Ab         Fm
Don’t you wonder what keeps him there, day after day,
B            Cm         B              Cm
Begging for gold as his hair turns to gray?

Interlude : Bb Fm

Chorus :
Ebm              Db         B
Blindly they’re bounding apace,
               Ebm       Db          B
Starving for mercy in a merciless place
        Bbm             Abm          Eb
Only a fool would make martyrs from heathens
                   Bbm         Abm            Eb
And find them so lively when they’re barely breathing
               Abm7    Eb
Just barely breathing

Interlude : Ab Fm Ab Fm B Cm 

Verse :
      Ab            Fm       Ab          Fm
Just look at that toymaker grinding his gears
B           Cm         B          Cm
Turning no profit but he doesn’t care
           Ab        Fm        Ab        Fm
He keeps smiles on faces and, day after day,
      B             Cm         B            Cm
The children keep sadness and suffering at bay

Interlude : Bb Fm 

Chorus :
Ebm        Db        B
Blissfully bounding apace
                Ebm       Db        B
Searching for mercy in a merciless place
        Bbm           Abm         Eb
Only a monster makes fodder from saints
                   Bbm            Abm              Eb
And finds them so worthless when they’re full of grace
             Abm7    Eb
So full of grace…

Bridge :
     B
But what better use of hookers and thieves
                                                   Db                Bbm 
Than greasing the wheels of perfect machines that hum into life a harmony of industry
     Abm7        
But what is the use of cutting them down,
     Abm7
To smother and choke the souls of our town?
    Eb
I know there is another way…

    B        
But, what is so wrong with giving them purpose? 
(Just how could you weed them out?)
(Degrading them without a doubt)
Db 
A man like yourself could give worth to the worthless
(You’re bleeding them dry)
Bbm                             Abm7
(They live and die like you and I )
      Abm7                          
Without the guidance of rulers and tyrants
( and under your guidance, the hands of a tyrant)
      B                                 Eb
These people will just tear themselves apart
(They’ll just tear themselves apart)

Verse :
       Ab             Fm      Ab          Fm
Just look at that charlatan steeped in deceit
     B             Cm          B            Cm
A threat to the young, to the old and the meek
           Ab           Fm           Ab         Fm  
Don’t you wonder what made him so vicious, so sick
    B          Cm
So far out of balance,
    B          Cm
So cruel and so callous,
    B          Cm
So married to malice?
