*It Seems Obscene* (Lord)

Am Em D

Verse:
I'm overstretched - though I've just started
And I'm hungover in these thoughts
It's never flown before and it's too late for trying
This was the place that I forgot
I see the others play the same scene over
In words of magnitude they do not mean
I didn't even knew to climb those heights
It almost seems obscene, it almost seems obscene.

Verse:
We weren't safe and it's not what was done
No allowance, no error
We could have carried any weight that you wanted
But we shut down and made it fairer
We've moved for years in other directions
And chose to store it into stone
You don't know how much we have hidden away
The strength has turned to bone, the strength has turned to bone.

G D Am

Chorus:
Don't ask me for these feelings
Don't push where the fence is thin
Are you gonna keep this world from stealing?

C Em Am
Don't push and drive me deeper in

G D Am
I've seen what real hope has brought and what's its done
And I've seen it crushed in steam
It's not so easy for everyone

C Em Am
It almost seems obscene, it almost seems obscene.

G D Am

Chorus:
Don't ask me for these feelings
I wouldn't even know what I would see
They may not offer your revealings

C Em Am
Not everyone is free

G D Am
Are you gonna take care of what you made of me?
Are you gonna keep the messes clean?
Are you gonna fix the disability?

C Em Am
Not everyone is free, Not everyone is free
