[Verse]
G
Must it take a life for hateful eyes
Em
To glisten once again
C
Five hundred years like Gelignite
Em             D
Have blown us all to hell
G
What savior rests while on his cross we die
Em
Forgotten freedom burns
C
Has the Shepard led his lambs astray
Em               D
To the bigot and the gun

[Chorus]
C                        G
Must it take a life for hateful eyes
C            D
To glisten once again
      G      C        Em
Cause we find ourselves in the same old mess
      G     D    G
Singin' drunken lullabies

[Verse]
G
I watch and stare as Rosin`s eyes
Em
Turn a darker shade of red
C
And the bullet with this sniper lie
Em                 D
In their bloody gutless cell
G
Must we starve on crumbs from long ago
Em
Through these bars of men made steel
C
Is it a great or little thing we fought
Em                      D
Knelt the conscience blessed to kill

[Chorus]
C                   G
Must it take a life for hateful eyes
C            D
To glisten once again
      G     C         Em
Cause we find ourselves in the same old mess
      G     D    G
Singin' drunken lullabies

[Bridge]
     C          D       G
Ah, but maybe it`s the way we're taught
  C         D     G
Or maybe it`s the way we fought
    C        D          G      C
But a smile never grins without tears to begin
      C        D        G
For each kiss is a cry we all lost
    C           G
Though nothing left to gain
         C               D
But for the banshee that stole the grave
      G     C         Em
Cause we find ourselves in the same old mess
      G     D    G
Singin' drunken lullabies

[Verse]
G
I sit in and dwell on faces past
Em
Like memories seem to fade
C
No colour left but black and white
Em                 D
And soon will all turn grey
G
But may these shadows rise to walk again
Em
With lessons truly learnt
C
When the blossom flowers in each our hearts
Em                D
Shall beat a new found flame

[Chorus]
C                   G
Must it take a life for hateful eyes
C            D
To glisten once again
      G     C         Em
Cause we find ourselves in the same old mess
      G     D    G
Singin' drunken lullabies
      G     C         Em
Cause we find ourselves in the same old mess
      G     D    G
Singin' drunken lullabies
      G     D    G
Singin' drunken lullabies
