                Wasteland Of The Free
Iris Dement
Guitarviper


C           Am               G                C
               Living in the wasteland of the free

       G                                C
We got preachers dealin' in politics and diamond mines
          G                   C   
And their speech is growing increasingly unkind
Am
  They say they are Christ's disciples
    F
But they don't look like Jesus to me
              C        G                      C
And it feels like I am living in the wasteland of the free

       G                           C
We got politicians runnin' races on corporate cash
               G                             C
Now don't tell me they don't turn around and kiss them people's ass
Am
  Now you may call me old-fashioned
    F
But that don't fit my picture of a true democracy
              C        G                      C
And it feels like I am living in the wasteland of the free

       G                         C
We got C E O's makin' two hundred times the workers pay
            G                      C
But they'll fight like hell against raising the minimum wage
Am
  And if you don't like it mister
                  F
They'll ship your job to some third world country 'cross the sea
              C        G                      C
And it feels like I am living in the wasteland of the free


F              G                C
 Living in the wasteland of the free
E                                      Am
 Where the poor have now become the enemy
F                C
 Let's blame our troubles on the weak ones
E                        Am           F  
Sounds like some kind of   Hitler remedy
              G                  C
Living in the wasteland of the free
 
       G                             C
We got little kids with guns fighting inner-city wars
               G                       C
So, what do we do, we put these little kids behind prison doors
Am
  And we call ourselves the advanced civilisation
F
 But that sounds like cr*p to me
              C        G                      C
And it feels like I am living in the wasteland of the free

       G                                 C
We got high school kids runnin' 'round in Calvin Klein and Guess
           G                          C      
Who cannot pass a sixth grade reading test
Am
  But if you ask them, they can tell you
F
 The name of every crotch on MTV
              C        G                      C
And it feels like I am living in the wasteland of the free

            G               C 
We kill for oil then throw a party when we win
           G                    C
Some guy refuses to fight and we call that the sin
Am
  But he's standin' up for what he believes in
F
 And that seems pretty damned American to me
              C        G                      C
And it feels like I am living in the wasteland of the free


F               G               C
 Living in the wasteland of the free
E                                      Am
 Where the poor have now become the enemy
F                C
 Let's blame our troubles on the weak ones
E                        Am           F  
Sounds like some kind of   Hitler remedy
              G                  C
Living in the wasteland of the free

F             C
Whilst we sit gloating in our greatness
E                         Am
Justice is sinking to the bottom of the sea
F               G                  C
  Living in the wasteland of the free
F               G                  C
  Living in the wasteland of the free
F               G                  C
  Living in the wasteland of the free
