E (like intro)
It's on their TV's
weeping someone's babies
sweet on U.S.A. street
ancient soldiers sleep tonight (play 2x riff like above)

It's on their airwaves
their burning flag waves
ten thousand miles away
matchstick people burning


    D
    Ever far away some brown people
    C                               G
    mother turns our light in the darkness
      Bm     A         G
    another country's young
                  Bm      A         G
    beyond here another country's young
     E             C        E                  C            D
    pardon our charity, we want to kick our ideas to your head
    D
    and another country's young, is crying
    D                                            E (2x intro + 2x riff like above)
    and another country's young, is sleeping again


It's in their daydreams
waking and sleeping
no more silent safety
no more disassociating themselves  (play 2x riff like above)

No losing or winning
hearts and minds are sleeping
no chance on USA street
never get an inch to crawl


    Ever far away flickering brown people
    mother turns our light into their darkness
    another country's young
    beyond here another country's young
    pardon our charity, we want to kick our ideas to your head
    and another country's young, is crying
    and another country's young, is weeping again


instrumental: 8x intro, then 2x with bass + drums only (also on the next verse lines)


No chance on USA street
Easter Parade families
at the airport waiting
America's green junkies return  (play 2x riff like above)

It's on their TV's
the mud people died today
but we forgot them anyway
on someone else's time


    Ever far away the distance tears apart illumination
    and screams out into darkness,
    another country's young
    beyond here another country's young
    pardon our charity, we want to kick our ideas to your head
    and another country's young, is crying
    and another country's young, is bleeding again


instrumental:    4x intro 
                 6x riff like above

 

end:    E (with feedback)
