C                      Em
Why are some men born
With minds that earn degrees
The loving cups, gilded plaques
Grace their study walls, hide the cracks while their

Dm              G              C
Genius is turned to works of tyranny, then
Off to market to market, go selling these
With words so fiery and persuasive, they steal cunningly
Riches no one can exceed

C                            Em
And why are some men born with
A fate of poverty
One firm bed for a swollen back
Year by year the bodies wracked while their

Dm           G          C
Obiedience is had with gradual defeat
By the pace, by the pace and the urgency
Through a muddled thought they phase it
God knows we're decieved, barter for what they need

F                             G
And where they go disdain and jeering
For fools to call the noble peasantry, o how it puzzles

C         Em/C/Em

I took away the long gone cold coffee cup
As a trail of Camel ashes
Fell on the floor

end (sort of):

B 13--13--13--13--13--13--12--12--12--12--12--12--13
(there's more stuff going on during the verses, but i don't know
what...so...make something up...)
