D/BDarkness at the break of noon D/AShadows even the silver spoon D/CThe handmade blade, the child's balloon D/BEclipses both the sun and moon D/BTo understand you know too soon There is no sense in trying. D/BPointed threats, they bluff with scorn D/ASuicide remarks are torn D/CFrom the fools gold mouthpiece D/BThe hollow horn plays wasted words D/BProved to warn That he not busy being born Is busy dying. D/BTemptation's page flies out the door D/AYou follow, find yourself at war D/CWatch waterfalls of pity roar D/BYou feel to moan but unlike before D/BYou discover D/BThat you'd just be D/BOne more person crying. DSo don't fear iAf you hear DA foreign sound Gto you ear DIt's AalGright, AMa, DI'm only sighing. So don't fear if you hear A foreign sound to your ear It's alright, Ma, I'm only sighing. D/B As some warn victory, some downfall D/A Private reasons great or small D/C Can be seen in the eyes of those that call D/B To make all that should be killed to crawl D/Bb While others say don't hate nothing at all Except hatred. D/B Disillusioned words like bullets bark D/A As human gods aim for their mark D/C Made everything from toy guns that spark D/B To flesh-colored Christs that glow in the dark D/B It's easy to see without looking too far D/Bb That not much Is really sacred. DWhile preachers prAeach of evil fates D Teachers teach that G knowledge waits D Can lead to A Goodness hides behind its gates G But even the president of the United States A Sometimes must have To stand naked. AD/Bn' though the rules of the road have been lodged It's only people's games that you got to dodge And it's alright, Ma, I can make it. AD/Advertising signs that con you Into thinking you're the one That can do what's never been done That can win what's never been won Meantime life outside goes on All around you. YD/Cou lose yourself, you reappear You suddenly find you got nothing to fear Alone you stand with nobody near When a trembling distant voice, unclear Startles your sleeping ears to hear That somebody thinks They really found you. AD/B question in your nerves is lit Yet you know there is no answer fit to satisfy Insure you not to quit To keep it in your mind and not forget That it is not he or she or them or it That you belong to. AD/Blthough the masters make the rules For the wise men and the fools I got nothing, Ma, to live up to. FD/Aor them that must obey authority That they do not respect in any degree Who despise their jobs, their destinies Speak jealously of them that are free to be Nothing more than something They invest in. WD/Chile some on principles baptized To strict party platform ties Social clubs in drag Outsiders they can freely criticize Tell nothing except who to idolize And then say God bless him. D/BWhile one who sings with his tongue on fire Gargles in the rat race choir Bent out of shape from society's pliers Cares not to come up any higher But rather get you down in the hole That he's in. BD/Aut I mean no harm nor put fault On anyone that lives in a vault But it's alright, Ma, if I can't please him.

D/C

Old lady judges watch people in pairs Limited in sex, they dare To push fake morals, insult and stare While money doesn't talk, it swears Obscenity, who really cares Propaganda, all is phony. D/BWhile them that defend what they cannot see With a killer's pride, security It blows the minds most bitterly For them that think death's honesty Won't fall upon them naturally Life sometimes Must get lonely. D/BMy eyes collide head-on with stuffed graveyards False gods, I scuff At pettiness which plays so rough Walk upside-down inside handcuffs Kick my legs to crash it off Say okay, I have had enough What else can you show me? D/CAnd if my thought-dreams could be seen They'd probably put my head in a guillotine But it's alright, Ma, it's life, and life only. Seems very hard at the beginning put easy during the middle. If I'm wrong report it. Enjoy!
