            [Intro]
Am Fmaj7 Am Fmaj7*

[Verse 1]
Am                                                 Fmaj7                             Am
I always thought, I always thought, that there was something different, setting us apart
Am                                         Fmaj7*                      Am
That I was led, that I was led by men with sober minds and sympathetic hearts
                                          Fmaj7                           Am
I swore an oath, swore an oath, but never knew just what it was to take a life
Am                                     Fmaj7*                        Fmaj7
I play at God, play at God across such distances and from so great a height

[Chorus]
Am                           G
But I am never sure who I am killing
Am                             G
How many innocents were in the building?
Fmaj7  C         G7
I drop death out of the
Am                                G
No longer human beings, no longer people
Am                                     G
Just targets on a screen, none of it's real
Fmaj7  C         G7     Fmaj7       G  Am
I drop death out of the sky... Tell me why

[Bridge]
Am Fmaj7 Am Fmaj7*

[Verse 2]
Am                                             Fmaj7                           Am
One day they sent, one day they sent me to the chaplain when I said I can't go on
Am                                   Fmaj7*                            Fmaj7
All he said, all he said was just to shut my mouth and do the "will of God"

[Chorus]
Am                           G
But I am never sure who I am killing
Am                             G
How many innocents were in the building?
Fmaj7  C         G7
I drop death out of the
Am                                G
No longer human beings, no longer people
Am                                     G
Just targets on a screen, none of it's real
Fmaj7  C         G7     Fmaj7       G  Dm
I drop death out of the sky... Tell me why

[Bridge]
Dm Fmaj7 x4

[Outro]
        Am
Tell me why?
            G7                 Fmaj7
"To make us safe," so it would seem
                             Dm
But we shoot further than we dream
         C/G               Am
Can't we see? We only justify
                     G7     Fmaj7
Someone's resolve to rise against
                      Dm
And to avenge the innocent
Dm    C/G                        Fmaj7*
And defend the ones that still survive
                  Am
I'm still asking "why?"
