Here are the lyrics and chords to a song.

Record a version and send me the file. I'd love to hear what others come up with.

Violence


(a psycho-techno-Leonard Cohen-Gregorian chant)


................. Am.............................................G
When the tree root splits the stone ..is it violence?

...................Am............................................G
When the butcher breaks the bone.. is it violence?

....................Am................................................G
When the eagle sinks her claws, and the clever make the laws..

...........Am
is it violence?

.................Am..............................................G
When the lawyer screws the poor.. is it violence?

................ Am....................................G
or the jailer slams the door.. is it violence?

................... Am...........................................................G
When the baby screams for more, though its mother´s breasts are sore..

..........Am
is it violence?


............F.................................................Am
Curse me ..for the serenity of my ignorance

............F........................................................Am
let moans of bitter yearning be your refrain

............F.......................................................Am
plunge me ..into the cusinart of your envy

...............G...................................................Am
..and bind me with words like rusty chains



..................Am....................................G
When the doctor amputates.. is it violence?

...................Am.....................................G
When the atom radiates.. is it violence?

....................Am..........................................G................................ Am
When your testicles deflate, and your veins coagulate.. is it violence?

...................Am.............................................G
When your whining hurts my ears.. is it violence?

................Am..........................................G
or my roving fuels your fears.. is it violence?

................... Am...................................................G
When you tear my heart in two and there´s nothing I can do..

.......Am
is it violence?


..........F............................................Am
Hurt me... hurt me with your earnestness

............F............................................. Am
...disembowel me with all your heart-felt pain

..........F...............................................Am
...burn me with the acid of your resentment

..........G...............................................Am
until your memory is like a bed sheet full of stains


.................. Am......................................G
When your lover lies to please.. is it violence?

......................Am.....................................G
..or leaves venereal disease.. is it violence?

.................Am........................................G............................................Am
When the virus fate defies ..and suicidally multiplies.. is it violence?


(.. a bit faster and more emphatic)

...............Am....................................................G........................................Am
When the gypsy stoops to cheat, so he has enough to eat.. is it violence?

...................Am..............................................G
When the sadist entertains.. his masochistic friends with pain...

.......Am
is it violence?

.................Am............................................................G
When the telemarketers late at night, invade your dreams to show their

........................Am
might.. ..is it violence?


(Angrily.. loudly..)

......F.................................................Am
rip me ..tear me with your benevolence

..F.....................................................Am
impale me with the intensity of your distain

...F.............................Am
make me highly uncomfortable ..


(indifferently.. softly..)


...............G........................................ Am
..by playing this song .. ….again..
