The World We Used To Know (Tempo = 66)

Intro: (C) (CMaj7) (C) (CMaj7)

(C) sometimes I wonder why it's so (CMaj7) difficult
(Am) To live in this world of (Em) constant tumult,
(F) It seem that everyone is upset (C) and angry,
(F) Violence's everywhere, lies and (G) trickery,
(F) It was not as bad just some (C) years ago,
(Am) This is not the world we (G) used to know.

(C) This is the age of pushing to the (CMaj7) extreme,
(Am) People don't discuss anymore, they would (Em) rather scream,
(F) Far to the left and (C) far to the right,
(F) They all see the future as (G) dark as the night,
(F) People minds are getting too (C) narrow,
(Am) This is not the world we (G) used to know.

(Dm) Where are the values of our (G) societies,
(Dm) Based on honesty, freedom, faith and (G) peace,
(F) Where are the good old (Am) leaderships,
(F) Now they just screw us up with (G) dirty tricks,
(F) Could we have fallen that deep (C) down below,
(Am) This is not the world we (G) used to know.
(C) (CMaj7)
(C) Can't we just go back to a (Cmaj7) more human world,
(Am) Where religions would only (Em) worship their god,
(F) To help bring people together and (C) live in peace,
(F) Where there'd be no need for prison (G) and police,
(F) Or will it become the fights of (C) the egos,
(Am) This is not the world we (G) used to know.

Solo: (Dm) (G) (Dm) (G) (F) (Am) (F) (G) (F) (C) (Am) (G)

(C) We all want an easy way to (CMaj7) reach the sky,
(Am) But nothing will ever make it (Em) easy as pie,
(F) Challenges are part of the (C) experience,
(F) Accepting them will ease the (G) way to joyance,
(F) The least we pray, the (C) bigger they grow,
(Am) This is not the world we (G) used to know.

Ending: (F) (C)
(Am) This is not the world
(G) we used
to (C) know.
