How To Play

INTRO
| F  Bbsus2 | C         |
| F  Bbsus2 | C         | C         |
 
 
VERSE 1
         F                 Bbsus2             C
Well the fiery five points came from Queen of Babylon
       F                    Bbsus2            C
Rotten rapture and lines of lives that came undone
        F                    Bbsus2           C
And how cool wind blew their dreams away like paper cups
            F                     Bbsus2         C
Now they're bound and bearing the shadows of the gun
          F    Bbsus2    C
Let's sing
 
 
VERSE 2
         F           Bbsus2         C
And the stranded señoritas fall and take a knee
        F                 Bbsus2          C
For the anthem, believe a dark and rising drum
          F               Bbsus2         C
While the cholos in their Chevrolets and mercy streets
        F                  Bbsus2          C
And the shiny wall for the bankers and the Bronx
          F                     Bbsus2      C
Then they line the halls of the prison it becomes
 
 
CHORUS
    F        Bbsus2  C
But maybe we will be free
         F   Bbsus2   C
When the battle lines meet
F          Bbsus2  C
Maybe they will be one
         F   Bbsus2  C
When the counting is done
      F          Bbsus2  C
Yeah, maybe they will be free when the reckoning comes
 
 
INSTRUMENTAL
| F  Bbsus2 | C         |
| F  Bbsus2 | C         |
 
 
VERSE 3
       F                     Bbsus2              C
So the choir boys hide their voices, bruised and out of tune
          F                Bbsus2         C
While the priestess of the harbor rides a wave
        F                     Bbsus2           C
And the bar girls drown their choices in their silver spoons
       F                   Bbsus2            C
With a junkman's nightmare crashing in their veins
        F                Bbsus2          C
And the rich ride silver horses to their waiting ships
          F                Bbsus2        C
While the poor cry out for justice and cocaine
         F                   Bbsus2           C
And they all bow down to the new crown of the apocalypse
       F                  Bbsus2              C
As he stabs the truth and slides out onto the stage
            F                  Bbsus2                C
Then as the footlocks melt the grease paint from his face
          F                Bbsus2          C
It's very hard to tell the master from his slaves
 
 
CHORUS
    F        Bbsus2  C
But maybe we will be free
         F   Bbsus2   C
When the battle lines meet
F          Bbsus2  C
Maybe they will be one
         F   Bbsus2  C
When the counting is done
      F          Bbsus2  C                       F    Bbsus2    C
Yeah, maybe they will be free when the reckoning comes
 
 
POST CHORUS
                   F                Bbsus2              C
When the reckoning comes (Reckoning, when the reckoning comes)
                   F                Bbsus2              C
When the reckoning comes (Reckoning, when the reckoning comes)
                   F                Bbsus2              C
When the reckoning comes (Reckoning, when the reckoning comes)
 
 
CHORUS
F        Bbsus2  C
Maybe we will be free
         F   Bbsus2   C
When the battle lines meet
F          Bbsus2  C
Maybe they will be one
         F   Bbsus2  C
When the counting is done
F          Bbsus2   C
Maybe they will see peace
         F      Bbsus2  C
When the hearts are   released
F           Bbsus2     C
Maybe we'll reach true sun
         F    Bbsus2  C
When the gauntlet is  run
F          Bbsus2  C
Maybe they will be free
                   F    Bbsus2    C
When the reckoning comes
