Intro: C Am F C

       C         
We're taught to tell the truth

But yet we're taught to force a smile
     Am
They lead us down a road

But they can only see a mile
       F
We only see what they want us to see
        C
We only see what they want us to see


     C 
They line us up in uniforms 

And tell us not to feel
        Am
They've never been to heaven

But they tell us that it's real
          F
They only see what they wanna see
          C
They only see what they wanna see


              F
We watch them pray
              G
Down on their knees
       Em                                      Am
'Cause that's the way that they were taught to be
              F        G
And thanks to them, we can be free
           F        G -hold-
Thanks to them...


            F    G    Am
We have the key---------
          F       G      Am
You'll be you and I'll be me
            F    G    Am
We have the key---------
          F       G      Am
You'll be you and I'll be me


     C      
They say that they're not puppets 

Then we point them to the strings
   Am
Convinced they'll stay together

By the paper and the ring
               F
But they can't see what we want them to see
                C
They just can't see what we want them to see


   C  
So tell me all your secrets 

and I'll tell you all my fears
       Am
'Cause if we knock these walls down 
    Am -hold-
We might know why we're here


              F
We watch them pray
              G
Down on their knees
       Em                                      Am
'Cause that's the way that they were taught to be
              F        G
And thanks to them, we can be free
           F        G -hold-
Thanks to them...


            F    G    Am
We have the key---------
          F       G      Am
You'll be you and I'll be me
            F    G    Am
We have the key---------
          F       G      Am
You'll be you and I'll be me


              F
We watch them pray
              G
Down on their knees
       Em                                      Am
'Cause that's the way that they were taught to be
              F        G
They just can't see


            F    G    Am
We have the key---------

You'll be you and I'll be me
