CAPO 5TH FRET: 

VERSE: 

Dm
Walk in a corner shop
Am
See a shoplifting cop
Dm
See the old lady with a gun
Am
See the hero try to run
Dm
Nothing's what it seems, I mean
Am
It's not all dirty but it's not all clean
Dm
There's children paying bills
Dm
There's monks buying thrills
Am
There pride for sale in magazines
Dm
There pills for rent to make you clean
Am
Marvin Gaye, there's no brother, brother
Dm
Woody Guthrie's land, can't feed mother

CHORUS:

C             C/B
Mothers weep, children sleep
Am               F
So much violence ends in silence
C                    C/B
It's a shame there's no one to blame
Am                F
For all the pain that life brings
C           C/B
If you will just take me
Am            F
It might just complete me
Dm                         G
And together we can make a stand

VERSE: 

A waitress brings me lunch
We meet but do not touch
On TV D.C. selling lies
While in the corner King's dream dies
Go to the counter, pay for me and my friend
A homeless man pulls out a roll, says it's on him
The mayor has no cash
He said he spent it on hookers and hash

CHORUS: 

Mothers weep, children sleep
So much violence ends in silence
It's a shame there's no one to blame
For all the pain that life brings
If you will just take me
It might just complete me
And together we can make a stand

BRIDGE: 
Am  C    C/B  Am    C    C/B  Am (etc.)
You will love me, I will love you

CHORUS: 

Mothers weep, children sleep
So much violence ends in silence
It's a shame there's no one to blame
For all the pain that life brings
If you will just take me
It might just complete me
And together we can make a stand
