Poem – She Drew The Gun Chords and Lyrics

Artist : Poem
Song : She Drew The Gun

[Intro] : A

[Verse 1] : 
A
Can't believe what I'm reading when I open up these sheets
            Dbm
They've got police getting busier, cleaning up the streets
     F#m
'Cos that's what we need now to make the place neat
         D
Take the homeless man's rags, no sleeping bags no place to sleep

              A
Because we're far too civilised around here to see
   Dbm
An unkempt human being, a broken human being
  F#m
Open up your eyes, are you seeing what I'm seeing, yeah
  D
A misplaced, made to feel disgraced human being

         A
Why it's not enough to just pretend that you don't see him
    Dbm
You can't stand the sight so you've got to disappear him
       F#m
Well I hope you feel more comfortable doing your sight seeing
       E
Taking pictures, buying fucking Union Jack magnets and key rings

[Chorus] : 
A
 Life give me something to believe in
Dbm
No lies, just something to believe in
F#m
Am I the only one that's grieving
      E                                                     A  
These things that belong to you and me that they are thieving

[Verse 2] : 

And how long until they build a wall and call it a private city
         Dbm
They got walls made out of laws to exclude you and me
             F#m
And now they take away our right, to fight those laws for free
         D 
No legal aid, no more justice, only for the wealthy

                A
Oh, but they're trying to build a more healthy society
        Dbm
So that everybody knows you don't get nothing for free
   F#m                                            D
No scroungers, no living room loungers living off me

      A
Can I suggest you're seeing exactly what they want you to see
  Dbm
A monster, a cancer, a threat to your liberty
            F#m
How about a scapegoat for their crimes, a victim of the times
D
Everything that your not meant to be

            A
How about a badly prepared, scared human being
            Dbm
How about a necessary cog in their economic machine
                  F#m
'Cos if there was no unemployment tell me how would things be
             D             
Do you still feel lucky to be working 40 hours a week

             A
We're like a caged bird and they got us by the beak
         Dbm
Give us enough to eat, enough to sleep, enough to tweet
            F#m
But there's not enough space between the ground and our feet
             E
We're singing songs of freedom but we're not flying free

[Chorus] : 
   A 
So, life give me something to believe in
Dbm
No lies, just something to believe in
F#m
Am I the only one that's grieving
      E                                                         A
These things that belong to you and me that they are thieving

[Verse 3] : 

And this whole world's got me hurting, got me feeling undeserving
       Dbm
Got me questioning my worth in this sad system that we're serving
        F#m
Find no place in this twisted race for property
          D
Is making profit the sole aim of humanity

            A     
Protect the banks, bring out the tanks if they disagree
            Dbm
While we're at it let's invest some more in military
        F#m                                    D
All our friends have shares so why shouldn't we

            A
And now the markets are demanding that we give away for free
                Dbm
Everything our grandparents fought for to some company
            F#m                                            D
It's called wealth creation, yeah, it's more efficient you see

                 A
Well sorry, I forgot the free market would set us free
     Dbm
I forgot to only think about (I man) and me
      F#m
While brothers and sisters have nothing to eat
D
Brothers and sisters, at home and overseas
     A                                Dbm
So I can't lie down and I wont let it be
             F#m                                        D
While we are working for a market that doesn't work for we

[Outro] : 
A                                                     F#m
These things that they're thieving, they're yours and mine
                                                        E
You know that they're still stealing, but there's still time
                     D
If you feel this way too
A                                                     F#m
These things that they're thieving, they're yours and mine
                                                        E
You know that they're still stealing, but there's still time
                     D           A
If you feel this way too
