[Verse 1]

                     F#m                              E
Yeah, why are they refusing to listen, why are these troops on a mission
              E  D                                           A
Why are they shooting these victims, over their view of religion
            F#m                                   E
Yet why do we all search for love like we got cupid's addiction
          E  D                                          A
Why with politicians, you can't tell the truth from the fiction
              F#m                                    E
Why do we pollute where were living, why are these youth put at risk and
              E  D                                         A
Why has this ruling dominion kept us consumed in this prison
         F#m                         E
Na na na, I won't jump through the hoops of the system
             E   D                                       A
Nothing stands between you and the pursuit of your vision
          F#m                                E
I grab a loop of this rhythm, it puts the juice in my pistons
          E  D                                     A
To jump back, react, spit in the booth with precision
           F#m                               E
And when I'm cruising with Izm, yeah I'm deucing a spliff and
       E   D                                    A
It's BnE show, bitch, getting loose was a given
     F#m                                  E
I don't want them to look back when the future is written
             E   D                                                 A
And know we killed ourselves with nuclear fission and stupid decisions
  F#m                                   E
Shit, I'd rather an asteroid doomed for collision
                E    D                 A
Then know the planet got fucked by the human condition,
       Sing the tune with conviction


[Chorus]

   F#m            E              E    D                             A
And all I know is the sun is shining, yet we fight all thought the night
  F#m                  E                  E    D
While the 'burgs are melting and the sea is rising
                            A
I don't know so I ask them why
  F#m             E                E   D                               A
And all I know is the sun is shining, yet we fight all through the night
   F#m                E                     E    D
Well if you don't know, shit, and I don't know
                              A
I guess all we can do is ask them why


[Verse 2]
             
Yeah, I'm an old school poet

Yeah, yo, yo
             F#m                  E
Yo, I'm an old school poet, I cherish the ink
          E   D                                       A
That cosmic cowboy that doesn't care what they think
        F#m                                    E
Real magic isn't card tricks. big cribs and cars, bitch
          E    D                                A
It's making something out of nothing through this hardship
          F#m                         E
And even though that the earth is weak
           E    D                                       A
We still bomb each other and idol what the churches speak
               F#m                        E
It's like this land is either run by labour or liberal
       E   D                                         A
But don't get it twisted, they're the same as the criminals
      F#m                             E
So open your eyes, simply notice the issue
        E     D                                A
That we stuck to our guns without promoting a pistol
       F#m                   E
And we orchestrated the sound that we all love
    E     D                                    A
Split because of colour, but bound because of blood
        F#m                                E
So before we all blow and they sell the scene
              E    D                                      A
Know that the only thing that's bullet proof's my self esteem
     F#m                                E
See this is way beyond cash and ego tripping
      E    D                          A
It's an epic, electric, Eso, ecosystem, grow with me


[Chorus]

 F#m            E            E   D                                  A
And all I know is the sun is shining, yet we fight all thought the night
   F#m                E                       E   D
While the 'burgs are melting and the sea is rising
                           A
I don't know so I ask them why
   F#m          E               E    D                              A 
And all I know is the sun is shining, yet we fight all through the night
   F#m             E                     E    D
Well if you don't know, shit, and I don't know
                                A
I guess all we can do is ask them why


N.C.
I don't have to tell you things are bad
Everybody knows things are bad
Air pollution's rising; the icecaps are melting quick
Kids trust no one; because fire burns
The air is unfit to breathe, our food is unfit to eat
It's an inferno in there,
Air pollution's rising; the icecaps are melting quick

Fuck your race riots, Fuck all that shit;
We are all here together in this country, as fucking one
As one
It's all about peace, love and unity
Sing it; peace, love and unity
Sing it
(Peace, love, unity)


[Chords Again]


[Chorus]

    F#m      E                   E   D                                A
And all I know is the sun is shining, yet we fight all thought the night
    F#m                  E                   E   D
While the 'burgs are melting and the sea is rising
                           A
I don't know so I ask them why
   F#m       E                  E   D                                   A 
And all I know is the sun is shining, yet we fight all through the night
   F#m             E                  E   D
Well if you don't know, shit, and I don't know
                                  A
I guess all we can do is ask them why
