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

Pre-Chorus:
       Gm                              Cm
In the dark of this place, there's the glow of your face
            Fm                          Eb         Bb
There's the dust on the screen, of this broken machine
      Gm                          Cm                              Fm
And I can't help but feel, that I made some mistake, but I let it go

Ya hey, ya hey, ya hey

Chorus:
Ab
Through the fire and through the flames
 Bb                     Eb                     Ab
-Ya hey Ya hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey -

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

But who could ever live that way?
 Bb                     Eb                     Ab
-Ya hey Ya hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey -

Verse:
Eb                        Ab
Oh,the motherland don't love you
                     Bb
The fatherland don't love you
                Eb
So why love anything?


Eb                                       Ab
Oh, good God, the faithless, they don't love you
                         Bb
The zealous hearts don't love you
                     Eb
And that's not gonna change

Pre-Chorus:
         Gm                        Cm
All the cameras and files, all the paranoid styles
        Fm                     Eb        Bb
All the tension and fear, of a secret career
       Gm                           Cm
And I can't help but feel, that you see the mistakes
               Fm          Eb       Bb
But you let it go, Ya Hey, Ya Hey, Ya Hey

Chorus:
Ab
Through the fire and through the flames
 Bb                     Eb                     Ab
-Ya hey Ya hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey -

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

But who could ever live that way?
 Bb                     Eb                     Ab
-Ya hey Ya hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey -

Bridge:
Eb
Outside the tents, on the festival grounds
Ab
As the air began to cool and the sun went down
Bb
My soul swooned as I faintly heard the sound
                          Bb7
Of you spinning Israelites into 19th Nervous Breakdown

Chorus:
Ab
Through the fire and through the flames
 Bb                     Eb                     Ab
-Ya hey Ya hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey -

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

But who could ever live that way?
 Bb                     Eb                     Ab
-Ya hey Ya hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey, Ut Deo Ya Hey Ya Hey -
