Verse:
A                             D
Oh, sweet thing, Zion doesn't love you
                  E                           A
And Babylon don't love you, but you love everything
                             D
Oh, you saint, America don't love you
                 E                          A
So I could never love you, in spite of everything

Pre-Chorus:
       Dbm                              Gbm
In the dark of this place, there's the glow of your face
            Bm                          A         E
There's the dust on the screen, of this broken machine
      Dbm                          Gbm                              Bm
And I can't help but feel, that I made some mistake, but I let it go

Ya hey, ya hey, ya hey

Chorus:
D
Through the fire and through the flames
 E                     A                     D
-Ya hey Ya hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey -

You won't even say your name
 E                     A                     D
-Ya hey Ya hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey -
                                         E
Through the fire and through the flames, you won't even say your name
A                D
Only I am that I am

But who could ever live that way?
 E                     A                     D
-Ya hey Ya hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey -

Verse:
A                        D
Oh,the motherland don't love you
                     E
The fatherland don't love you
                A
So why love anything?


A                                       D
Oh, good God, the faithless, they don't love you
                         E
The zealous hearts don't love you
                     A
And that's not gonna change

Pre-Chorus:
         Dbm                        Gbm
All the cameras and files, all the paranoid styles
        Bm                     A        E
All the tension and fear, of a secret career
       Dbm                           Gbm
And I can't help but feel, that you see the mistakes
               Bm          A       E
But you let it go, Ya Hey, Ya Hey, Ya Hey

Chorus:
D
Through the fire and through the flames
 E                     A                     D
-Ya hey Ya hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey -

You won't even say your name
 E                     A                     D
-Ya hey Ya hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey -
                                         E
Through the fire and through the flames, you won't even say your name
A                D
Say I am that I am

But who could ever live that way?
 E                     A                     D
-Ya hey Ya hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey -

Bridge:
A
Outside the tents, on the festival grounds
D
As the air began to cool and the sun went down
E
My soul swooned as I faintly heard the sound
                          E7
Of you spinning Israelites into 19th Nervous Breakdown

Chorus:
D
Through the fire and through the flames
 E                     A                     D
-Ya hey Ya hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey -

You won't even say your name
 E                     A                     D
-Ya hey Ya hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey -
                                         E
Through the fire and through the flames, you won't even say your name
A                D
Say I am that I am

But who could ever live that way?
 E                     A                     D
-Ya hey Ya hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey -
