D                        G             D
Eighteen in jail and with guns in their hands
         A                         G             D
They were fighting for freedom, but just what is that?
                       G            D
Bills to the banks, and food for the kids
    A                     G           D
With money for college but couldn't get in
                             G        D
Made all the grades but God's taken to task
      A               G         D
Lies a man in an alley wearing a mask
                        G            D
Screaming she begs as the people walk by
       A                       G         D
But the man he just laughs, the woman she cries

Chorus:
        D                    G      D
Well its time all you people, turn around
        A                      G        D
For the life we've been living, messing around
                          G        D
Blood we've been spilling, bleed us dry
         A                        G                  D                                   
Cause the life you've been killing is your life like mine

Verse -same as first-:
The needle is sweet and the snow it is pure
The pain I've been hiding from I'm finding a cure
The night it is warm and the light it is cold
The family I'm robbing, I'm calling them home

Chorus:
        D                    G      D
Well its time all you people, turn around
        A                      G        D
For the life we've been living, messing around
                          G        D
Blood we've been spilling, bleed us dry
         A                        G                  D                                   
Cause the life you've been killing is your life like mine

Verse -same as first-:
My heart it is thumping my veins they are blue
Blood has been pumping still hasn't met you
The beard that I'm growing will not fully grow
Years are not coming the way I thought they would

Verse -same as first-:
Hoping and waiting for something to seem
Like the angels in heaven, bombs on the street
Hoping for love to find a new voice
The song that needs singing has already been sung before

Chorus -x2-:
        D                    G      D
Well its time all you people, turn around
        A                      G        D
For the life we've been living, messing around
                          G        D
Blood we've been spilling, bleed us dry
         A                        G                  D                                   
Cause the life you've been killing is your life like mine

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
