Verse

B This used to be a place where Gwe could walk the streets UnArestricted by imaginary Efears BThings didn't seem to be so compliGcated then Til you Apolluted everything that we had Ehere BOur little secret was exposed for Gall its worth Stripped of Aeverything that made it good and Ethen BWe were forced out of the world Gthat we created And Aexpected to move on and start Eagain

Chorus

BWe live Dhere G toEday BWe live Dhere alGways alEways BWe live Dhere G toEday BWe live Dhere alGways alEways [ B / G / E ] w/ Lead Riff A x2 [Repeat Verse]: The money moved right in and sucked the life right out So the privileged could sit back and enjoy The things that made this place what it was before you came here Were the first things you decided to destroy We walk your streets late at night while you're asleep Creeping from the sewers oozing from the cracks We are the blood that pumps the heart you call your home And any day we're gonna come to take it back [Repeat Chorus] BWe live here, we live here, Dwe live here, we live here GWe live here, we live here E BWe live here, we live here, Dwe live here, we live here GWe live here, we live here E [Repeat Chorus, End on B]
