Intro : A  Am Em  D  Bm  C  G

Verse 1 :
           Am               Em   
From the comfort zone of history
        G                    D   
On the lips of trusted loved ones
        Bm              C              G    
To the wounded, fragile minds of angry youths
      Am          Em  
No sooner was it over
           G             D    
Than the memory made it nobler
        Bm              C                   G 
The selective means by which to point the view

Chorus : 
     Am         Em      D   
Compelled, but not defeated
      Am          Em               D 
Surrender under protest if you must
  Am            Em      D   
Compelled, but not defeated

A  Am Em  D  Bm  C  G

Verse 2 : 
           Am               Em
If it's all you can remember
        G                    D
Then it's been that way forever
        Bm              C              G
And for six long generations it's been told
               Am            Em
But-among-the fallen was tradition
        G                    D
That tradition was the mission
               Bm              C              G
And that the wrongness of the sin was not the goal

Chorus : 
     Am         Em      D   
Compelled, but not defeated
      Am          Em               D 
Surrender under protest if you must
  Am            Em      D   
Compelled, but not defeated

A  Em  D  A 

Verse 3 :  
           Am               Em
Does the color really matter?
           Am               Em
On the face you blame for failure
        G              D              A
On the shamin' for a battle's losing cause
           Am               Em
If the victims and aggressors
           Am               Em
Just remain each others others
        G              D              A
And the instigators never fight their own

A  Am Em  D  Bm  C  G

Chorus : 
     Am         Em      D   
Compelled, but not defeated
      Am          Em               D 
Surrender under protest if you must
  Am            Em      D   
Compelled, but not defeated
     Am          Em               D
Surrender under protest if you must
      Am          Em               D
Surrender under protest if you must

Outro : C  G  D
