1. The future teaches you to be alone, the present to be afraid and cold,

           F                                C                           G

    so if I can shoot rabbits then I can shoot fascists.

Am                         Em                      F                        C

    Bullets for your brain today, but we'll forget it all again,

                          F                                C                                    G

    monuments put from pen to paper turns me into a gutless wonder.

          F                       C                   G

    at being so young and being so vain.

    Holes in your head today, but I'm a pacifist,

             F                              C                         G

    I've walked La Ramblas but not with real intent.
